I made it to and from FOTU, including picking up a very rare undertray for the LT which only *just* fitted across the back seat, with the seat base removed!
In the Field of Dreams:
We had a brief but heavy rain shower, so I attempted to show some beading:
The engine attracting interest!
It's strange really, in that I've done all the work to the car with absolutely no intent to impress anyone, not to fit into any 'scene', just to go with exactly what *I* wanted. Yet I do get a bit of a buzz seeing people interested in it.
I was telling one guy the story behind it whilst stood at the back of the car, and he told me it was a great bit of history. But then he walked round to the front, looked at the engine and burst into a huge grin and a "What the fuck?" So maybe there is a part of me which enjoys showing off?
On the way back into Wales:
It behaved well, with no trace of starvation so I think I can relax a bit now. Still haven't attended a Shitefest in it without worry though! Next year...?
The MOT was due this weekend, so I phoned up my local garage to book it in.
"Have you got a slot free this Wednesday, if I leave it with you all day?"
"No problem, can I take the car details?"
"Yes, it's a Hyundai Stel-"
"Oh hi Mat, how are you doing?"
They must remember me for some reason?
Anyway, no problems with the MOT yesterday, but it rewarded me with an intermittent fuel gauge AND speedometer, so more tinkering time is needed if I'm not to risk running out of fuel.
