Been doing a bit of a refurb...speaker mounts etc. But this afternoon I had the usual stutter on the bypass (same time, same speed) then it overheated...with no stat in it. Clearly there are more serious issues here. Head gasket I suspected but no white gook in the oil and no smoke at all. She starts first time hot or cold and runs perfectly...maybe I should avoid driving late afternoon. :hahaha:

Didn't overheat today, maybe it's burped itself better than I did it, so carried on. The body is all painted now but some areas are a little patchy so more paint is needed. Best sell some more bike parts then...

Went to put on the new soft top as well. It has no stud fasteners on it so I got some and set to it, what a pain that was to do and only the windscreen ones, all nine of them. Then realised the new ones are too small!! DAMMIT. Started taking off the old ones and got annoyed so carried on painting...

Busy day. Car painted apart from the bonnet, that needs a weld or two first. Then the roof..got all the old pop studs off the knackered roof and did the nine top ones. Not bad. Then stretched it over and did a couple of rear ones, then some side ones. Fits ok. When it gets colder it should shrink a tad and fit snugger.

Yes mate but not the usual ones. This is a paint called Canbrush. It's like Plasticote but half the price and comes in 400ml cans. 1 will do a bonnet. But you have to lay it on thick so a bit of care is needed!
