Great stuff!

 

Obviously completely horrified you didn't sort that during the big strip down!

 

:D

Haha! It was fine last year, the extra thousand miles done since last August must have worn it out!

Nice work! I've driven the Mk1 Cavalier in Vauxhall's heritage collection - it's a decent drive, I was surprised at how good it felt. Vauxhall's Mk2 is an auto, though. I remember friends' parents having them when I was a kid. Felt like stepping back into something familiar, which the Mk1 didn't. 

Cheers Alex! The mk2 drives like a modern car - surprising given the 36 years since it's launch. The Mk1 is definitely from a different era though, I still prefer the way the Mk1 drives over the Mk2 - even though the Mk2 would be a lot nicer to live with day to day.

Tax free status now achieved :) It wasn't as straightforward as it should have been though. I took all the relevant bumph to the Post Office, only to be told that for some reason or other they couldn't do it. A phone call to the DVLA revealed the reason why - they had the date of manufacture for the car down as 31/12/77. The car was registered on 04/01/77, so there had clearly been a mistake made somewhere! They couldn't sort it over the phone, so I had to post a V10, my V5C and a cover letter to Swansea, and a couple of weeks later, the job was done.

I am so glad that this project ended up this good. Well done, I like it so much. My project is still on hold, I am collecting parts. :)
