Sun is out down South....
 
....and so for the first time in a year I cleaned the car, and then went for a shake-down pootle.

Over the past few weeks I've changed the brakes to a non-servo twin master cylinder set-up, and what a pleasing difference! The pedal requires a good shove (partly because the pads took a pounding on track the last time the car was used), but having a more naturally balance brake bias (I fitted a large front master, and small rear master to pull the bias rewards) makes the car feel massively better. Heath Robinson would be proud of my slightly unusual method of installing the twins.

As there's been little activity of late, later I'll post up a picture of the twin set-up to keep the forum bouyant, but for now, here's a picture of my car relatively clean for a change.

Car looks stunning John.

We have some nice days but cold during the winter.

Ain't you supposed to be resting?:biggrin1:

I don't do resting - can't sit still, and haven't actually watched any TV since being signed off!

Back to work tomorrow - got myself signed back on early, as the default two weeks off is a joke, and I didn't see the point of taking the piss.... enjoyable though a few more days would be.
