    well its been a little over a year since i last updated the blog so i thought id stick some pictures up. its been what feels like a long year on the car but the good news is it has an mot and is now road legal.
    over the year ive been sorting running issues tidy bits up giving things a lick of paint and tweaking, lots of tweaking. many many headaches but on the first drive home from the mot station when i took it to 7k all of those things were forgotten. i was chuffed to bits.
    part of the reason for not posting on here was because of the effort needed getting a laptop out uploading pictures etc etc ive set up an instagram page for the car so if youre on insta and dont already follow me check it out @k19_rpm


    heres a few pictures to show th car on its way to being complete...ish

    well it came to the point where the car needed to be turned around in the garage so i got it down on all fours for the first time in over a year.

    having the car outside on its wheels makes it feel all the more real, like this isnt just some pain in the arse that i spend my free time swearing at it in the garage its an actual car.

    Good to see there’s atleast a few of us here.

    I bought some sl434s in feb and never actually opened any of the packaging apart from the one wheel as they were going to be in the garage getting filthy.
    Turned out the lad sent me some auto finesse detailing stuff with the wheels and one had split in the packaging, so I’ve spent the last few months under the car being able to smell it wondering what it was.

    I quickly stripped the brakes down for a clean up and bolted them to the strut I stuck the disk on too to check clearances.
