It seems a little extreme simply to fit a new brake pipe though.

The paintwork and the other bits are being done while the replacement engine is being fettled before fitting.

Our local MG Rover garage did lots of bad things to the original engine hence why it was removed.

Fitted refurbished rear subframe and both upper arms, saw more things which require attention, both heat shields to re attatch to body and some derusting of some body parts, then put on new springs,found O/S one burst at bottom coil, how come I've replaced at least six springs on my bunch of 75's but never had one break on any one of my four R8'sDesigners of springs go back to the future.

I did a visual check on discs and pads today at the same time cleaning the wheels inside, adding some tyre black.

Reminder to myself change pads at the end of September.
