Well, a big box of bits came from Paddock's, so just waiting on some final pieces. But it mean a slow weekend - I guess it happens. Current target is to get between 2 and 3 Sundays a month on the car to keep domestic harmony and real life balanced.

But it has let me ponder a question. Once I rebuild my engine, stuffed full of graphogen and cam lube and new running-in oil, should I start it and bench run it in, or should I leave it until the car is ready to roll. I want to start it up, but have heard horror stories of not bedding the rings in properly and so getting terrible oil consumption - which I don't want.

So, any thoughts out there of the pros and cons to now versus delayed?
