    Ant's VR6- Back on the road...ish

    Happy day last Friday, 8 months after I first got a quote for the welding, the car passed its MOT!

    I've done the painting myself - it's not the best job but conditions weren't the best over the last two weeks. Should be fine until the Spring.

    The original exhaust was ready for replacement too, so it's got a stainless Jetex on there now.

    I got the car back that night, and straight away started making a list of the things that need fixing...

    Biggest issue is the rad fan coming on stage 2 instantly with the ignition, and then running on for 10 minutes after its switched off. The car's not got off the cold map since I got it back, so getting through a lot of fuel... The horn has stopped working as well, interestingly both the fan run on and the horn are on the same plug at the back of the fusebox, with the fusebox having been half-out until last week, I think the probelm might be there.

    The deluge of rain yesterday also showed how inadequate the wipers are... it already has TT arms and blades, but the blades need freshening up and the motor is past it. Lots of steaming up inside yesterday too, I'd love to finish the climatronic install (8 years later) and install aircon, but it's pretty far down the list at the moment.

    She's also got a 'back on the road' present - a set of recently refurbed Speedlines and nearly new tyres when I get the chance to fit them.

    Like every time I've got it back on the road, it needs a few weeks to loosen up and get the niggles fixed, but I'm looking forward to getting it all working again!

    Great news it's back on the road, congrats

    I fitted these wiper blades to my TT arms and despite being a little suspicious of the cheapness, they are excellent

    Wow that is cheap... I've gone with a bit of vaseline for now, as the blades aren't actually split or particularly worn, just the rubber was really hard, and a new wiper motor is waiting to be fitted, we'll see how that works.
