Recommended Posts

drove Excel out of garage for first time....................for years! (not washed or polished - must keep up appearances!) drove her up n down the road. still bit nervous of a couple of noises but radiator and autobox cooler seem to be leaking! so bonnet to come off again n look around before i start ordering other parts................. wanna check brakes etc n service her when leaks sorted n try for an mot. regards all.

I got a three core rad ex Lotus Bits.

Did the thermostat at the same time and cooling lots better afterwards
