Well spotted Phil (overbraided fuel hoses) - Jeff, don't forget to replace the one from the top of the fuel tank - it's not too difficult to get to !

Thanks for the positive comments. Getting a list of jobs to do on the car, so far.
R9 fuel hose
Service and all oils and filter.
Satin black paint on the red bits and header tank.
Crackled black for the rocker covers.
Original air filter housing. Ford blue or black?
Wade through the huge amount of history.

Would love to hear a bit more about the car Jeff . How you managed to find it , bit of history ect ect , if that's not invasive . Remember to use the best oil filter , as discussed on this Forum a while back. Regards Richard

Good grief. I know we are hopelessly in love with our cars, but a carpeted garage ?! That even looks like Axminster.

I guess if you know your car doesn't leak any fluids, why not carpeted! Awesome :D

R9 fuel hose
I mentioned Cohline for a reason - not all R9 hose is created equally...and for some the only things that is R9 is the text printed on it.

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.
