Many thanks to James and Greg for organising a day that will surely be very difficult to surpass. Maybe we should do it all again next year, and the year after...

I'd be up for anything going on. Midlands would be a preference.

Cheers,

Simon Durant is your man for restorations. He recently did mine and the job is superb. Not sure whether he would do accident damage though?

Hi Sue,

The fan in front of the radiator is controlled by the ECU and will not always be on when you have the aircon on. My compressor clutch sticks sometimes and requires a tap with a hammer to get it to eng ...
