turned out the were rubbish. clapped out completely. they were a fair way away from my house but one of my mechanic mates cruised round to have a suss for me. he lives 5 min down the road. i was gonna low ball him any way. spent the money on a few bits and pieces for the motor.

Looks good, believe it or not I actually came so close to buying the same items at the beginning of the week but decided to wait a bit at the last minute ,not sure why ,still will probably get them. Is the display brighter than the original?

yeah mate... probably a little too bright to be perfectly honest.
I had only two bulbs working and they had blue covers over them.
So the difference was huge. i reckon i'll get used to it.
Looks alot more modern then the crappy green.

Made a few ebay purchases today. Got new engine mounts, new idle tensioner, water pump and also got a pair of outer tie rod ends sitting at pedders for me to pick up. Also have a delphi crank angle sensor in the glove box.
I think im gonna buy a new hose kit too.
Service is coming up in about a month so looks like its gonna be a big one.
im 30 now but i think the bug i had as a 19-21 yr old is coming back. Starting to enjoy mucking about with cars again

Trust me you never totally loose it. Might go MIA for a time at various stages but it keeps coming back
