std rears gave the car a splash of colour lo

engines running abit rough, got an annoying tap from the lifters so got a new set on the way and its got a missfire at certiain revs (caused by the lifters not opening the valves enough i think), and also some vernier pullies so i can get it all set up propperly and sort out the lumpy idle

rear wheel bearings, wheels swapped, refitted exhaust, cambelt, 16X hydrolic followers, checked oil presure (2bar at idle), fitted side light bulbs, fixed number plate light and changed oil + filter.
