Hands up who admits to.....

Post by Fordoholic Nick » Thu Mar 07, 2019 5:05 pm

waxing their oil sumps :wave: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Just getting a few things ready for dropping B112 over to Tickover Monday morning for Underside Resto Pt 3 !!
Really does seem a shame to fit now. These Pinto sumps have lovely curves. You dont really notice the beauty of their curves when they are fitted.....

Ermmm....maybe I need to get out more :wave:

I think you have way too much time on your hands :lol:

I'm also insanely jealous you get to polish these random items in your spare capri time rather than having to fix something that's gone wrong like I usually have too :lol: :oops:

Hi mate.

Bet yours still looks great underneath. You done an amazing job there fella. You can see the dedication to get it looking so nice. If it does need a clean like you say then that offer to hire a ramp for the day is brilliant. How cool is that and it will make cleaning it so much easier for you. Nice one :)

Thanks very much for your very kind words on mine. Leaving it in with Tickover on Monday for some more work underneath. Very exciting....just not told the wife we cant afford a holiday this year.... :lol: :lol:

All the best mate
