    Oh right. Even closer then 👍🏼 Only 20? Are they really that much of a dieing breed? Im sure that’s actually a good turn out just seems such a shame as they used to be everywhere back in the day 😂

    I will do hopefully get time on it tomorrow. Whats VBOA? 😬 hopefully I’ll still have it then but due to no longer having storage for it I don’t want it sat on the driveway.

    Yes It was! I originally bought the car when i was 18 so an audio system was a must! 😂 yeah I always wanted to redtop it so i did but didn’t really use it after i did and then it ended up at the back of the lockup. Im a mechanic by trade but working on modern cars these days is nothing like these! I miss this much room around an engine bay! to be honest i just did a google as it’s always good to get a second opinion at times 👍🏼

    Yes mate i did the installation many years ago. Been off the road for 14 years in dry storage with some other projects. Im going to rig a fuel pressure gauge to the rail and tape it to the windscreen see what the rail pressure is as it hesitates. Failing that i am tempted to drop the tank just for a look. nice i always liked the mk3’s. i have had 5 mk2’s and this one was the first 😊

    Haven’t tried running without the cap off. I like to let it warm up but if i drive it from cold it doesn’t seem to misbehave at all. Only after afew miles. Normally it starts straight up but just recently it sometimes cranks first time with no fire then strikes up straight away second time

    That’s for your reply i have noticed the slow replies 😂 yeah all vac hoses ect fine and no external leaks. Seems worse when cornering so im going to check fuel pressure and probably drop the fuel tank as it has been standing for many years and the first couple of days being on the road it ran faultlessly. Thanks for the compliment yeah i do have some more pictures of the old girl. forgot to mention im in newark Nottinghamshire
