Storage.

Went to have a look at a place to store my MGB today .. got talking to the guy that runs it and mentioned my XJ40's .. so from next month they can all be stored together, in the dry (with room for a couple of my bikes, and spares .. once the guy who now rents in sells his lathe and gets it moved!) ....

Re: Got me another one ...

Thanks for the interest!

I do like the colour, blues seem to suit the 40 (although this is a very 'silvery' blue).

Just insured it today, so I can now tax it ... and use it (but i'd like to get the rusty rear pillar sorted before i let the wife into the secret!!!

Got me another one ...

Some rust problems ... but nothing approaching what my Gold was like when I got it!
A few dings and dents to sort.

Trouble is .. which one do I come to meetings in now?
This one has a much sweeter engine .. but then again it's only done half the mileage!

Re: Main Meet 2020

Just to throw my pennyworth in ... Bank Holidays are usually already taken up with other events (even worse now as I've joined the Sealed Knot and have to go and wave my pike at the Royalist scum - battles every Bank Holiday, but it is good, knackering and painful fun and there's always a beer tent ...

Today.

Finally fired the old girl up for the first time this year (good job I took my battery booster as the one in the car was totally flat!) Ran her up to temperature with no problems (but it does seem that I have a oil leak from the rear of the rocker cover - but it soon burnt off!!!). https://xj40.rvdz...

Re: Spotted today

I actually spotted one today (first time for ages) didn't get the reg but it was green and going over the bridge over the River Neen (Towcester Road) heading out of Northampton - nice to see one again!
