Now i have the V6 vec-b up and running, this has been decomissioned from daily use.
I have since found the handbrake shoes are on the way out. i have the parts here to fit, bought straight off the self from my local motor factors. ;D I need to find time to fit them but no rush for now.
Its currently sat in front of my Garage with a nice brand new jacket to keep the elements off during these colder climes.. 8)
If/when we have a dry day i'll get the shoes done and give it a run out.

I am sad to announce that this dippy will have a good new home to go to next week. I didn't want to sell it, as i liked it so much, but there's only me now, so i can only drive one at a time and already have a show car, so cant drive them both to shows.
It no doubt will be on the forums still and circulating.  I may even get to drive it occasionally too. :D

It is a sady day, but the head ruled the heart. As much as i would have liked to have kept it,i really couldn't justify keeping it to sit round hardly used. Space was the other issue.  :'(
