I need to finish refurbishing the house so I can make space in the garage to work on the cars!

Primary aim this year is to get the engine rebuilt and back in the 420 so I can finally get it back on the road after a 3+ year absence (so far :-| ).

Hi Folks
As discussed at the Christmas meet, James and I will be going racing this year.
Lots of things to sort out (including James' ARDS of course), and lots of plans at early stages, but I'll keep you all informed.

Hope to see you at some races soon :D :D :D

Cheers
Dave

two new engine mount to fit, and finally take it all apart and refit after my rushed rebuild, and stick a good 10-12k on it from April, sort my alloys out, I still do not know what I want

Where do I start? My list of jobs just keeps getting longer! I'm confident that 'Robbie' will be back on the road by.the 1st of March. Unfortunately, an appearance at POL isn't guaranteed as I'm only 4th 'in the book' for an annual leave day. I may have to see if I can swap a rest day with someone. 'Spencer' (the silver one) has disgraced himself again with a failed alternator. I may be SORN it for a few months, to concentrate on getting it ready for a respray. Oh, and I still need to sell Bennie........unless I win the lottery of course!

Yes, steel caged bearings for the gearbox. I'll drop it out and take it to a PG1 specialist

Yes, might as well use bricks! I've tried all sorts... new cables etc... I'm going to dismantle the whole lot and rebuild forensically.
