    I more gutted that the old man has forked out for the repair as I shouldnt have let him drive it as its a hard car to drive being low. And I gutted that I have lost a day, meaning the wheel refurb is out of the window, but we can not have every thing. just friday night and saturday day will be busy finishing of the wiring in the car and sorting out the screen and solenoid.

    I know how you feel, the long wait is a killer. But when you go and see the end results, all becomes clear that the long wait was well worth while.

    Looking forward to seeing what your car looks like now.
