    Still lots to do Mark, and I am sure there are many nicer things on here....but thank you I know what you mean, it's quick, useable, reasonably economical and fairly roomy. I like it more each time I take it out

    Yes I am Dunc, I took it to a local ford gathering at the weekend and it ended up with a large crowd around it and they genuinely loved it...I am also really glad I bought this to keep it company too

    Well the PAS leak seems to be coming from the pump so I have bought a new seal kit and will attack that shortly. I have cleaned up the whole area as part of the MOT prep so I can see where any fresh leaks may be. I also replaced all the washer pipework and blew out all the fitting etc with my airline, they are now working better than they ever had, the old pipework was a bit manky as you can see in the engine bay pic below. Here she is at the MOT place and some quick pics for insurance valuation ! It passed by the way Time to enjoy some of the upcoming meets and shows

    That's correct as I understand it Dunc. I guess it gives you a wider choice if you really wanted to change the column. I have a coarse tech1 in my garage, but I want to keep it as have an Alpina wheel in mine and if/when I sell it I may want to put it back.

    You have a steering box not a rack and not worth the aggro. I am sure you will be able to find one. I reckon £50 was pretty good, I would guess that a coarse one may be slightly dearer as less about Besides the bus wheel is cool

    Back in an ‘M’...

    Lovely, I really like that Tom. Much more subtle than all the shouty colours you normally see. I drove this one recently at our local dealership, was good fun
