the stock brakes surprisingly worked pretty well once i had replaced every last bit of the system and used high boiling point racing brake fluid.. defo recommend an upgrade if you gonna be drag racing lol.

Managed to get time out to get the car bathed and polished, had not been cleaned since the 1991 I think but it's come up really nice, still not finished but spent about 4 hours on a clean. Need more t cut!

Very nice indeed. Just noticing the sills, are you going for all red or all black?

It's getting there I think, will proberly go with red sills, when i get them as it will make the car look lower :)
It's amazing what a clean and polish can do! The interior looks mint in this car, must have been just motorway mileage on this, as the seats have no holes in the bolster bit, i will get a picture next time after interior wash :boogie

Yes, thanks guys. I hope this weekends weather is good to finish off the polish, I got more compound for the plastic, chrome and bodywork.
After I spent the money on her, and wonder where it's all gone? But when I drive her wow wee, then I know it's money well spent. :driving
