Thanks for the support, I must admit that recently having given ANG a full clean, the first for some time, I'm feeling quite optimistic about things. So optimistic in fact that another Scim is joining the 6a, I'm collecting the Green SS1 which was on the 'bay a couple of weeks ago. Another car to run a Thread for, it's a sort of birthday present to myself - I was born on Trafalgar Day, I've always been thankful they didn't name me Horatio!

It seems ages since I last posted. ANG didn't get fettled to do the wedding, a relative of my now daughter-in-law offered his Bentley Continental, no contest really. So ANG continued to sit on the drive looking rather neglected.

I've decided to bite the bullet, at last, and offer the car for sale. The interior and the other bits are as they appear in this thread, but the paintwork is very poor, especially on the roof. Complete QRG Stainless Exhaust, re-built Starter, with new armature, but there is something amiss with the wiring as the starter now refuses to actuate, though it worked well last summer. Spares include, set of Stainless Water Pipes, Stainless Fuel Tank, Auto Gearbox, Tailgate, Carburettor, a set of Black Silicon hoses and a full set of Superflex Suspension bushes. I'm looking for £950, the car is on the Isle of Wight.

I recently had a chat with the chap who runs our local garage workshop. He's going to give me a hand to fix the starting problem and, as he's MOT qualified, he'll give the car a once over to see if there's any chance of passing the test. I'll keep you posted with any progress.
