    Covid 19 jobs

    Well it seems we are all going to be spending a lot more time at home, probably enforced in a few weeks time, so the opportunity to do all the little jobs which never get done on the car presents itself, my own, none of which are significant and would normally get left in preference to driving the car, are.........
    Fix the nagging gearbox leak
    Fix a small engine oil leak
    Do an oil change service
    Tidy up the dashboard edges
    Finish the hood bow I've been making
    Refurb the wheels
    Possibly do something to improve the brakes
    That should fill a few days

    What's yours?

    Today I finally got around to fixing the door cards on properly and rewiring the speedo with shielded cable which stopped it bouncing around (suspect the original wires were routed to close to the tachometer feed wire). Plus then a little drive around to warm it up 😀.
    Waiting for slightly warmer weather to give her a thorough clean and wax.

    Spent about £200 in B&Q on Friday, got last pot of white paint, ready for the last stretch on our house refurb project.
    Chap there said everyone had had the same idea, which was just as well as he didn't now how long they were going to stay open.

    I'll also be finally finishing the swap to knock-ons which can now get underway now I finally finished re-wiring the dash, which has taken ages.

    My stepson's paper round seems to be getting bigger everyday.

    It's allowed me to make faster (but still slow by most people's standards) progress on refurbishing (rather than rebuilding) my Rover V8.

    I was going to tax my car from April but have started to remove the intake manifold to cure a small oil leak and check out the lifters while I’m there. Have had a bit of a ticking for a while so now’s my chance.

    Cologne 2.8 to RV8

    Just removed the v6 Cologne from my Mk2 Sumo and sent for the mounting brackets.
    They fit nowhere near the mounting bracket welded onto the chassis and although
    Pilgrim have tried to help, I am sruggling to find ones which fit ??
    I have fitted RV8's in a wide variety of vehicles but now the engine is in there isn't
    much room so it may have to come out. Can anyone provide guidance in this area please ?
