    David, that's a lot of logs!!
    Found the bolt!! Took me 2 hours, mind you the corner of the garage I lost it in is a lot tidier now!
    Cheers,
    Murray


    That's the trouble with you Sailors, long hair, quick zips and, Oohh, look at the size of that!!

    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    Thanks for pointer Lee, already fitted though in a way i can just cut cable to length from other end.....made my side vents a bit too tight as well...

    Thinking about it, have a question for AK gay power steering owners......Looking from the front of the car, is the rods coming out of the PS rack supposed to be horizontal to the AK steering arm or slightly pointing down as mine do? may have cocked up otherwise somewhere...

    Regards Gav

    Great thread topic and thanks for the rekindling of my thoughts on completing my build!

    After the best part of two years of just going into my garage to get my mountain bike or the lawn mower out, I took the dust cover off the Crendon and realised that I am not so far away from completion.

    Today I jotted down a completion programme/plan; I am going to order some long lead-in time parts this coming week and book the IVA test for June 2014.

    There I've said it!

    Gulp!

    Do you fancy doing mine when you've finished Kev as you will be well practised now.

    I did nothing to it.
    There were a few cars in it´s way im my garage.Too much work to get it out. Pulled the 911 out and shut the door. My garage is still full (of working cars). Had a wonderfull drive through the most eastern piece of land in Europe: Cabo da Roca, Cascais.

    Shamrock Cobra, 350 Chevy, still running. Now with a new edelbrock carb,and new brakes.
