fingers crossed

Recommended Posts

Finally got enough spare cash to get my Elite into Lakeside Engineering at the weekend for C service and MOT. Hoping that it will sail through the MOT but it has been hiding in the garage for the best part of 2 years with just a monthly start up and occasinal trip up and down the drive. Fingers crossed it gets to Lakeside but never let me down before.

Ready for a week off at Easter to reacquaint myself with the joys!

Good luck Guy. I've heard good things about Lakeside. I'm sure the old girl will do you proud. Liam

Now just the wait til it's ready to be picked up

I bet you got some admiring glances along the motorway, we used to get many thumbs up! It's a very reliable Elite that one, trick is to keep it running.........extended layups just result in big spikes of spending with no pleasure between - you don't really save any money!

The good news is that it passed its MOT without even an advisory.  Not so good is that apart from the C service it needed work to the cam belt tensioner, new hub bearings at rear, new output shaft bearings, new fan assembly and new washer jet (off Mk I Granada according to Max).  So I am considerably poorer but it is running well.

 

Saw that rather beautiful A reg Copper Bronze Elite at Lakeside too.   Lovely inside and out - or will be when the heater matrix is fixed!
