    The bad:
    Needs a sterring box, new tires and an alignment (BADLY!). The front tires rub at full lock but it should be ok.
    The new calipers leak at the bleeder valve threads on 3 of the 4 which is frustrating. May send them back if I can't flush out the issue.
    I bet that felt great! ... Loved the video and Mrs Ďvpogvís wee excited laugh!

    Have you tried the adjuster in the steering box? Might also be worth adjusting your steering stop bolts or possibly fabricating new stops to prevent the tyres rubbing on full lock.

    Iím not that far behind you ... Iíll post a video of my 1st drive later this summer

    Fantastic. It's a great feeling the first time you get to drive your car even though it's far from finished

    Good call on adjusting the stop - that just makes sense. The box is leaking pretty good but after some digging I may just pull it, clean it up and go the grease route instead of oil. Biggest thing still are the leaking bleeder valves along with slightly spongey brakes.

    Absolutely! Now to get it actually registered for the road so I can drive it to get tires and an alignment. Clutch grabs well just have a bit of trouble hitting reverse consistently. Little more adjusting.

    Yes that's a problem I had, but once you get the position of the gear selector plate right the problem will disappear.

    Thanks guys! I am pretty sure I could have kept driving and been happy as anything.

    I think you're right. I adjusted it once to be able to get 1-4 so I am sure just a bit more fiddling and I will be ok.

    I highly recommend it if you have never even driven it. Gives a sense of a little accomplishment.

    Drove Ukhozi up and down the underground car park where my 'shed' is, felt great . Even better when I get brakes working,
