Exhaust. This is very fruity, and makes me drive like a twat. After the petition from the neighbours and a verbal warning from the boys in blue its time to fit a fully standard exhaust from one end to the other.
At least then I can leave the road without the black looks from passers by.

With these two issues sorted I might use it, and if I use it I might be inspired to paint it
You might receive less remarks if it was painted. Right now, it looks like a teenage hooligan kit car; with some paint, it would be a tasteful classic.

First thing is to remove the remotely operated bonnet catches and change them got two lever type from a Triumph Herald.

SeaNick - A belated welcome back.

Hope all goes well with the paint and I look forward to seeing it finished.

Finally a few hours to get my head around fitting the Triumph over center bonnet latches.
I did have two remotely operated hidden bonnet catches, but I couldn't get the bonnet tight enough to avoid a rattle.
These have to be recessed, so cut a hole, bevel the edges, then get a little GRP in there to give something to work with.
