dunno what im gonna do with this one

get it road worthy wil be a start

short list.
change gearbox. > making rattly noises from end casing.
replace fron brakes> bit poo
replace rear cylinders and bleed > shot and no fluid
light service on car.
find a set of legal, wheels and tyres
fit a exhaust system
get ready for mot

first up, bleeding the brakes




one problem

rear nipples are chocolate and twisted off



so



brakes were then bled, and front disks and pads aren't the best, also unsiezed the rear brake load compensator.

and after trial and error with 3 cats, 2 exhaust systems, the sportex ended up on the car.
after fixing the manifold as the thread had gone,
itll need its mount adjusting as it isnt sitting right
