    Thank you for reply

    It is something very special for me! :Smile:
    I hope to have health and some money from time to time not to stop the project.
    Part of the project will almost certainly be done slowly because, begin to drive soon to be able to observe what needs it will have more after so long stopped :Smile:

    VIC Done at 8th December
    Next step...TAX, Insurance and MOT

    Insurance will be so expensive because, I´m portuguese, and always I drived left hand side (I don´t know if is correct the way I wrote)
    The first payment will be almost 400£, and monthly will be around 100£ :/

    After MOT I will know if Honda will need more stuff! :Smile:

    I love seeing old rusty bits getting refurbished and looking new again. Great work @Filipa, looking forward to seeing the end result. You'll have to share a shot of the bay with the new hoses too!

    I'm guessing you have a thing for purple yeah? :Icecream:
