Well I think the slave cylinder is sorted.



Been sat in it up on stand going BBRRMM BBRRMM but it's not the same haha



Wheels are in the post, bit of a squeeze through that little slot, haha





Had a small parcel from the governor, three slave cylinders, one of them has fitted straight in, hopefully thats sorted.

Track rod ends? still waiting, they have to make new ones as the old uns can't be matched.

Wheels are off to Slough via currier, they need four to seven day to examine and check them to see whats needed.

The rears can be trued, hopefully all the way, or as the man said better thaan they are.

The fronts can be rebuilt.



Looks like wires all round is still a dream.

Is this going to grace us with its presence this year or will it keep having tantrums every time it comes out of the garage??
