Snapped Stud

As if there is not enough to do, one of the front wheel studs snapped. This was a real headache for me as I wasn't sure how to fix it.

Hi Lo Refurb

Recently I bought some genuine Ripspeed Hi Lo's from Ebay for the rear suspension. When I got then they were in a bit of a state, but it was all cosmetic and I knew they could be cleaned up.

Fancy Fuel Lines and Filter Removed

Since overhauling the carburettor, it has made the fuel lines look very untidy and we can't have that!! But on a serious note, since fitting the fuel filter, I have had considerable problems starting the car. So when I fitted the new braided stainless fuel lines, I removed the filter for now to see if it would fix the problem.
