Well looks like the car is just about ready for the MOT. Fitted a drivers side mirror today, fitted air filters and airbox, sorted the fuel pipes and filter and fitted the fuel gauge properly. Took it for a quick spin on private roads and all seems well apart from the throttle getting stuck and a high idle, adjusted the idle and fixed the spring so just tyre pressures left.
Fingers crossed for friday. Only thing that seems a bit dodgy is the handbrake. Carbs may need setting up as it seemed a bit gutless or maybe the overdrive was left switched on!
