My car is finally back on the road!!!

After about 5 weeks longer than what was first expected.
It started off as a head gasket and head porting and polishing. But after that more things needed changing. These include the timing chain guides which are a b**ch to get to.

But as of today, the car has stopped leaking and is officially drivable.
So yeah, I'm wikid and thanks to those that helped me. Mostly Fraser.

So when are we doing yours?

Meh, I was only working on it every sunday which is kinda hard to find parts on.

The Head was finished in 2.5 sittings, about 10 hours worth.
