    Cheers Geoff, Eric and John.

    All's still good here.

    Dean's got some heavy personal issues to contend at the moment with but he's making progress with my engine.

    He's having the radiator rebuilt for me.

    The original had as dent in it, a nice shiny restored engine with a knackered looking radiator..... kinda like new wipers on a busted windshield.



    I hope to have news on a new job soon, which will allow me to log back in more often and give Geoff a run for his money on post counts again .

    I worked 37 hours of overtime last week.... it's too much....

    I wouldn't mind but the tax man takes most of it, my bank account is still well in the red at the end of every month.

    Lee.
    Everything's good!

    Great new Lee!!

    I can cancel the "Doobster Memorial Bash" we were all looking forward to later this year. Steve was flying in from Perth, Andy from Germany and were gonna have a Hog Roast coz John F was making a guest appearance. So, sorry to see you are still here, really! (Chrissy was gonna pole dance for us!!).

    Doobster posting abuse at me with graphic illustration is all the warning you need, mate!

    Notice how everytime lee pops up the tone of our intellectual discussions dives into the gutter. Maybe we need to quarantine him - he's a rude boy!

    For any new comers, my Christine build has had a very interesting history,
    not least the fact that the guy that build it was the president of this ICC but is now supposedly serving 14 years in prison.
    This thread is worth reading from the beginning if you haven't read it yet.

    Here's the latest on my engine rebuild:


    My (318 Poly) engine block is rebuilt (by Dean AKA ChristineUK) and on an engine stand in my garage, well protected.
    The Heads have been rebuilt , D.T. did have new valve seats put in for me but nothing else was done to the heads when the car was in Tennessee.
    The head manifold has been acid primed and primered, ready for paint.
    My exhaust manifolds have been sandblasted and painted with heat resistant black paint.

    My radiator had a dent in it, Dean has just had it rebuilt for me, I think it's been upgraded too as my engine tended to overheat.
    I've cleaned the engine bay up and repainted various items such as the fan.


    Dean's had a rough few years and now sadly his personal circumstances have also changed, he'll be moving back to his home town of Bury St Edmunds at the end of this month.
    He now has a space in his workshop up there, the plan is for us to get my Christine shipped up to his workshop where he'll have better opportunity to refit the engine and give the car a thorough going over.

    Thankfully Dean will still find himself in my area now and again as he has several clients down here, which is also good news as he's been doing a good job servicing and looking after my wife's 2013 Ford Fiesta for the past several years.


    Lee.

    Thanks for the update, Lee. Always thought a lot of both you and Dean.

    Glad to hear things are steadying out now for Dean, he was having a rough go of things awhile back.

    Doobster, Amazing, amazing Christine!! What tires are you running?

    Nice to read the update Lee. Don't be a stranger, mate................................

    ............................I must qualify that: Don't be ANY stranger (than you already are). We need to keep track of our pet wierdo!

    Chris, for your information Doobster once appeared on here in a bright yellow t-shirt. Consequently Looney Toons signed him up for the live action remake of the Tweety Pie cartoons, but he failed to make an impact in Hollywood.
