Busy day yesterday, Bricky order arrived nice and early so injectors built up and the last of the new fuel lines installed, good tidy up of the engine bay and we fired her up :mrgreen: Started first time and sounds great.

We took a short drive, mechanically all good, front & rear diff locks working, needs a bit of fettling as its running rich before the MOT today.

That is indeed now a thing of beauty and a pleasure to the eye. (Although, I have to wonder whether you’d hear a comment like that anywhere but on this forum?! I have friends that owned T4s 5s or 6s who just cannot understand what we see in the T3!)
