My melos project is up for sale.

Would anyone be interest in a melos project? 'Piss' yellow colour want back what I've spent. It's got a brand new part installed loom and engine runs. Bodywork could do with some attention but is in a good condition. Roof could do with a Restitch and a few other little bits. I've seen something else and just want something that I can drive now as I'm getting less and less time to spend on it rather have something that I can jump in and drive on majority of occasions. Looking £700 but open to…See More

Tips to start xflow

Morning all went to start the 1300 xflow last night and wouldn't start. It hasn't been started for about 3 weeks and there's been a bit of moisture in garage due to frost and bonnet being off the car. Wondering if any of you have some wonder tips to try get it started again. When it turns I get a puff of smoke out the air filter on twin choke and if crank a few more times I get a little bit of a backfire of sorts.ThanksSee More

He seen the light, He'll be fine.

Thanks all for your support, although nothing is mentally wrong with me I know you snigger at the melos but it's a good price for a starter. Although I have a phaeton shell that will soon be on and as the saying goes it's mutton in lambs clothing ( I think that's correct, correct me if I'm wrong)
