I’ve been a little quiet because I’ve been out of the country with work and enjoying the car. We’ve had a couple of dry(ish) weekends so I’ve been out and about. The camera is mounted and I grabbed video… it’s mainly me stuck in traffic as the battery ran out as I got some open […]
The new radiator is in and plumbed up. I’ve taken her out for a quick shake down and everything seems fine. Over the winter I want to add some type of rubber stop at the bottom of the radiator to stop it fouling on the chassis (being uber cautious!) and check to make sure the […]
Learned a lot over the last week. If you’ve been reading the updates on the hot headed page then you’ll know after I installed the radiator and filled the coolant system the car wouldn’t start. It turned over but wouldn’t fire. Turns out the Koso Digital gauge I have has two resistance settings for the […]
Hopefully the radiator is arriving tomorrow so I can get another job ticked off and car taken out for a little bit of a shake down. I haven’t driven it since replacing the exhaust mounts and I don’t want to do too much without making sure it is all okay. I popped down to the […]

A call from Custom Made Radiators has cheered me up along with some progress figuring out the wheel cap cover. Both pages updated below. Radiator Wheel
So popped down to the garage with a modest list of jobs to do. I’ve cleaned up the area behind the radiator as best I can. It certainly was a bit grubby from all of the leaked coolant and salt from the road. I’ve had a good hunt around the engine for the casting mark. […]
So I’ve found someone to make a custom aluminium radiator and have now removed the old one so that I can send it off as a template. I’ve updated the Hot-headed page to include some more pictures and a description of the process (which was easier that I thought). Let’s hope it goes back on […]
There were some goodies waiting for me when I arrived back from work today. In no particular order: Tiger supplied ball joint Case for my action cam (if the attachment fits the roll bar then videos will follow) Selection of bolt cap covers Tiger supplied exhaust rubber exhaust mount (might use this one as it […]
The exhaust mounts have been replaced. Everything seems to fit fine and the first job on the car is complete. A small step for the car but I a big(ish) one for me. Click here to read more or find the job in the completed list below.
