Ah yep should have said, windex for the outside, special anti fog treatment for the inside!
The ventilation indeed remains a mystery to me. Mostly mitigated by the fact that you can drive with the top down even in the coldest weather and still feel snug because the seats are so low. Have also thrown in some dehumidifiers which seem to be helping.

Guys,

Always work putting a few of these in you car £8 each.

Unibond 360.

They really make a difference this time of year, even in the garage.

Outriggers completed. Painted. Body all aligned and bolted up with new stainless bolts.

Fuel tank refurbished, new cross tank hose fitted as well as tank to fuel pump hose.

Next job is to check the cam.. I think the cam profile has worn so need to pop the rocker covers off to check.

Got a new cam, solid lifters and vernier sprocket just in case.. 99% sure it is. New cam should make mot emissions easier. New cam is an M238.

Just changed the cam as part of engine rebuild - make sure it doesn't require machining if there's retaining plate involved...

It's already machined as I run a serpentine front cover. It's the short nosed cam.

Thanks Adam and your 400SX. In my garage the 450 SEAC is a happy bunny and 390SE is without sill covers and fuel lines, while I replace the scabby perished lines. Happy New Year to you all. Hopefully we can meet up at the BBWF. cheers

Outriggers are now finished, so just started on the cam replacement.

Oil and water drained down, just starting strip down and check of components.





Sure was cold in the garage this weekend, even with a little heater.
