Most of the parts have now arrived and the carburettor reassemble is underway! I’ve updated the carb page with the progress.
I was planning on buying some shot blasting gear but unfortunately my daily drivers was vandalised at some point between the 30th December and early afternoon on New Year’s day. I suspect this was a parting gift from 2020, it has been on of those years! Anyway, the misguided person manages to smash my windscreen, scour some of the other glass and snap off both near side door handles (with associated damage to the surrounding body panels and paint work). Going to be an expensive repair. It’s interesting though that my biggest frustration was that because that car is on finance this means I can’t attempt the work myself!
