High mileage shocker - wonder if I'll crack 100k in it by the time fossil fuels run out. :)

For some reason the link is to page 3 of the build thread, and this site won't let me edit it?

Now the Cavalier is done, I can sort out the wheel bearing noise on this.

I changed the rear bearings the other day, but have the joy of doing the fronts this weekend.

Because it only went together a couple of years ago (and copper grease was used) everything came apart easily.

Still getting occasional use out of this from time to time

It really is a shame I don't get to use it more.  I've been thinking of selling it, but I know I'd regret it afterwards.

Just re-read the whole thread, fantastic work, clearly you take pride over your cars.

So far, the only proof I was there for the show and shine on Sunday is this shot by Dean - I didn't have a camera with me.

New tailgate badge arrived today - a definite improvement on the one that's on there!

The old one had faded to orange/pink, and as the silver had worn off I'd re done it with vinyl wrap. It'd annoyed me for ages - so this new one is very pleasing!
