Makework shop, I'd say.

That P38 is amazing. Suddenly I want a blue one!

I wish I had the time, dedication and funds available to do a job like you’ve done to our 2002 Vogue SE.

I’ve just seen more pictures of it on the link you posted, that car really is an absolute credit to you.

Thank you for all the kind comments. I've been running around in the car just to settle all the odds and ends and it is driving very well. There was a fizzing sound coming from the gearbox which had me worried and Bill at Hardy Engineering, who rebuilt the box and TC, had a careful listen and identified it as an air borne sound rather than a liquid based sound which impressed me. It was the loose plastic inner on the gearlever gaiter touching the lever. So simple and so easy to fix.

I need room for a new project, not decided what yet, and so the car is going off to Historics March sale to see how it does.

Without everyones help here I would still be in deep trouble so thank you all. Another ,more usable, P38 may well be on the list.

The CVC went to Historics who hid it in a dark wet corner so unsurprisingly it got no bids.

It has now gone full circle back to the chap I bought off.

In justifying the financial loss I comforted myself with the thought that if I had bought something new and kept it for 3/4 yerars the depreciation would be the same.

It was worth saving, I had a lot of fun and gained a huge amount of knowledge from every one on this most welcoming of sites with particular thanks to Richard.

After a period of recovery I'll no doubt plunge back into the P38 pool.

I could lend you one for a few months! It would save you from any financial loss! :)
