new rocker gasket seems to have sorted the oil leak - fingers crossed.

bit more removal of bodykit residue in the hot weather too but it's always so tempting to just take this rather tatty old rocco out for a quick blast. so i do.

currently have the passenger side carpet 'wedged' up to dry out underlay that is still paying the price for my slack door card re-fit before Winter kicked in.

Still the favourite................ :groove:

Nope, another - later - set for this one now. The earlier set now in the Scala Paul.

SORN since September, just passed MOT.

Speedo cable issue - it's all connected up at clocks end and the gear drive is safely in place, 'think' the cable itself must be split??

TBH struggling to see when this one will ever really progress, uncertainty at work not helping!

Deffo being done in a different colour, nothing groundbreaking tbh - IF the new tyres from Camskill turn up in time these will be on next weekend.

Jetex rear box soon to replace the supersprint, still in good nick, just want a different look at the back given that the bodykit is staying off.

Cambelt change next month.

And then there's the issue of paint...............


No CL pics i'm afraid Mat- not digital anyway.

Hi Sean - Love the wheels, thought about them myself (I'd keep them pink of course...)
Let me know what you're planning to shoe with them. GTX?
