Finally, my car has gone to be sprayed After 3 years of working on it, I can start to think about actually getting to drive it. Paint is going to take at least a month and then I've got to put everything back into the passenger compartment, but at least all the bits are cleaned, repaired, painted, recovered, etc and ready to go in. However, I've discovered a minor problem with my gearbox (a TH350), Once it has warmed up reverse gear is slipping . First gear works fine and had plenty of torque to drive it up onto the trailer, can't really try 2nd or 3rd yet. Hopefully I'll be able to drive it forwards for a while before having to take it off the road again and rebuild the box! Still I always wanted a project and the car hasn't disappointed in that regard.
