Ians GTC rebuild

Just been to the bodyshop to see how they are doing. All repairs done to the bodywork, primered and blocked back. Darren found plenty of problems with the body. It appears to have been in an accident and the repairs and paint job were substandard ( that is the polite version of Darrens description)....

Convert heads to unleaded or not?

I wouldnt convert to unleaded valve seats. After seeing one of the inserts on mine was loose I would leave well alone (see my posts GTC Rebuild). Fuzz Townsend does a complete range of lead additives. So you should find what you require.

Personally, I think many people seem to know the price of everything but the value of nothing.
Oh so true.

Tallied up, it cost me around £100 before I started the marathon walk to the venue. I'm afraid that's the end of my interest in the NEC.

Never understand how the caravan show manage to have free parking.
