Cheers mate! Not going to be a show van or anything so not going over the top, just tidying her up a bit

BACK FROM THE DEAD Image
You’ll have to excuse how well soiled she is but she’s back on the road. New tandem pump, oil dropped and re-filled and she’s as good as new. Just replaced headlight bulbs with some brighter ones, massive difference made! Also, fitted new rear plate lights. Image

Gave the old girl a clean inside today. Need to get the body done now, just a massive pain this time of year! ImageImageImage

Update: long story short, the diesel in the engine oil and smoking was not sorted upon return from the garage...so I decided to fly solo with it. Injector seals was the suspects. Armed with 4 packs of injector seals and a wrench I set to work. All the seals where perished! Once all seals were done, I dropped the oil and replaced with fresh along with a new filter. Sounds easy but as I found, it wasn’t easy with a lowered front end and side bars. A trip to Halfords for a pair of 2T car ramps and it made the job effortless! Now to run it, monitor the engine oil and hope that it’s ok! Starts/runs a dream now though.ImageImageImage
