    First off changed the seats and door cards as the others were a little tired and I didnt like the pattern geek

    It needed a PAS rack so that was sorted and then found that the head gasket had also gone so......

    Baz did the headgasket... Mal just stood and watched.

    (kidding)

    I remember when I had to do a head-gasket on one of my Mk2 8v's... it was a nightmare getting the downpipe off the manifold!

    Looks like a really nice motor. First time I've seen any decent pics of it!

    Baz did all the timing - I wasnt gonna attempt that Smile

    downpipe actually wasnt as bad as I thought but may have spoke too soon as its going back on this weekend
