Thanks! I'm so pleased with it.
It was done by Taylor TVR in Aylesford who I've been going to since Leven closed down and they've done a great job. While I was there, a couple turned up to collect theirs and they'd had the battery moved from the passenger footwell to the boot - it looked really good. It was housed in a carbon box with a trickle charger too. I'm seriously considering getting mine done though at 9 hours labour it's going to be a hefty bill.
I think the next job, unless something else goes catastrophically wrong in the meantime, is getting the interior sorted. As you can see from the pics, it's got a rather horrid brown carpet in it and I want to get that replaced and get the seats redone.
When I called Taylor TVR yesterday to ask about picking it up, they said 'It's all done but we had a problem - when we did the oil it came out all creamy' and my heart plummeted, thinking the head gasket had gone, but it turned out to be a different gasket which had been letting outside water in. Apparently, it was completely rotten and even had moss growing in it!
Really enjoyed the drive back - going through the Dartford Tunnel with maximum noise, some kids in a car pointing and waving, some guys in a bus giving me the thumbs up and a couple of builders in a van waving and smiling. It reminded me how much fun the Tiv is to drive.
