Thanks all

Completed a brake service yesterday, hand brake was pulled up on the mot in june which is now fixed, and a sorting out a noise in the passenger side, bolts left in the bottom of the door.

Been looking on my good old site eBay bought some smoked front indicators hope they come before uxbridge, looking to go carbon fibre on certain areas of the car, hardtop stand, plus when i get the log book back the private plate will be on. Before anyone asks the wheels are staying for now got loads of thread on them, but will look around for some wheels that will suit the car.

Motor looks lovely Sam, the M54 engine is a good engine providing its looked after. Be sure to look into upgrading the DISA valve if it hasn't been done, as the pin can dislodge, fall in the engine, and then its goodnight.

I've still gots lots of parts from my old Vert, so if you need anything give me a shout, even though its a facelift.
