Hey buddy, yes unfortunately time was not o my side. I would have made it to Waxstock but the engine decided it wanted to leak oil so the gearbox, clutch and flywheel had to come back off the car to fix the issue (which was the rear crankshaft oil seal)

That issue is now (hopefully) fixed, so I need to now bleed the clutch and brakes, double check everything is torqued down correctly, MOT, tax and insure the car ready for Ford Fair.

I still need to detail it as its not been touched in nearly 2 years, thinking about it. Even if I'd had no oil leak issue I doubt the car would have been up to standard for Waxstock, gutted as I had paid for a Top 16 entry ticket too

Ended up spending the weekend with the family and well away from the garage in case I went in with a can of petrol and a lighter
