Today I have replaced the oil seal in the dry sump pump that decided to leak slightly whenever the engine was not running and do a spanner check on the car following last Sunday's sprint at Abingdon.

Not a bad mornings work

Car is back up on axle stands in the garage whilst the wings are sorted.

Got the wing protector mats and they are pretty good quality especially for 25.

I'll take it Steve, really needed one of those on yesterday while I was installing my heat shield. One of my mum's drying up cloth's made a great alternative in the meantime though, not she saw ut that way though

Finished getting the blue car back together and went for a drive today. Very impressed with the clutch feel as its easy to slip. As Jon said, good for building up muscles. Still got a leak though so ive all gotr to come out again . Dripping from the bottom of the bellhouseing.
