Both rear calipers need rebuilding

Oil leak from valve cover

Brake fluid leaking from the master cylinder, possibly servo

Possible exhaust manifold crack (hoping not)

B/C service (had a cam belt last year)

Few little interior rattles to sort

 

Had a good look under the car for the first time since I bought it, and I'm pleased that it's pretty tidy down there.

I rarely use it nowadays..... I used to play with it a lot when I was younger, but the older I got the less I could control it..... now it's as if it has a mind of its own.

Full weekend on the car. Rear calipers rebuilt and now handbrake works tickety boo

 

Full fluids service, delighted to see signs that the car has been well looked after. I plumbed in a rudimentary mains pressure system to clear the cooling system through and all that came out was nice clean pink coolant.

 

Lower cam cover removed and re-seated with new gasket so hopefully that's the oil leak sorted.

 

Slight tick from the exhaust, experience tells me it's the manifold. It's still on the original so I'm hoping to get the summer out of it.

 

Car pops and splutters on over run, separate thread for this me thinks.

 

New battery on order for delivery later today, fit a new headlight switch and it'll be off to the MOT station ready for the show next weekend (weather permitting).

 

Anyway, after a wash I popped it back in the garage and couldn't resist this moody shot.
