Well done and CONGRATULATIONS!  So, you got the door handle sorted.

 

What's the fuel consumption like?

Yep, with the handle I made up a new connecting rod then found the old one bent up and wedged in the window mechanism.

 

I have no idea what the MPG is at the moment.  I've driven it less that 10 miles and it's done more revs on tickover than it has moving!

Not bad, but there's still a lot to do.

 

The carbs need tuning properly (I think I'm going to get it professionally done) and the geometry is all over the shop at the moment.  But, I have high hopes! :)

Thanks :)

 

I will be taking it down to Cornwall at some point but I want to get a lot more local running in first then a few longer trips before.  I want to build up confidence in the car, and be close to home if anything should go amiss.

I get breakdown cover with my classic insurance, but I'd rather not have to use it...

...make sure it includes nationwide recovery to your home. I learned that lesson last year, when an 'expert' accidentally destroyed my campervn's gearbox!

That makes a lot of sense. It's too late, but I will check my policy...

Before I went away in the campervan last weekend I added 'recovery' to my current cheapo RAC policy, for the 3 months left on it. This upgrade cost me £5.19p lol!!!

Bargain! That's cheaper than driving home.

Also you can have a beer whilst the RAC man does the driving!
