You argued with an idiot, I brought you down to my level and I beat you with experience.

Nice one. So your quite confident the build went well? Think she'll fire up straight away?

yup, all ok so far. i had it running for just over half an hour today just to make sure there was no water or oil leaks...

and my dear lord it needs a good bloody clean, inside and out. and all the alarm wires need to be tucked back in. and get the cambelt cover back on...i have to fix the roof liner, and then i should be all set for the mot.

here is a vid of it running and all the mess :D

i put a newer clutch in it today....it was to large for the pressure plate, so out came the angle grinder and i shaved about 5 mm from around the edge ;D

sounds dodgy as f*ck but it worked a treat :D

also undersealed most of the under side again, just to keep the MOT'est happy.
