First outing under it's renewed steam.

As the car has stood outside under a tarpaulin in Northern Ireland for some years there is much work to do.The underside is in surprisingly good condition and the outer panels are mainly OK too, just a few rust holes here and there to attend to.It means everything needs a little tweaking to get it functioning again,some things are beyond redemption though, like the fuel diaphram which was unbendable (if there is such a word).It gave me the first clue as to how long the car had stood unused.The engine did run after jerry-rigging a temporary fuel supply , which is something that always gives an old car restorer a good feeling.

Now I just have to get it to the mainland.
