Hi Dave
Glad to see some more progress.  Don't worry too much about the bonnet adjustment.  There are usually plenty of bumps, rocks and trees to help you with that!

Hope to see you at Bathgate.
Regards Brian

Hi Dave

That's progress.  You must feel you are getting somewhere with it now.  I suggest you do a noise check in accordance with the guidance in the blue book.  If you haven't got one I can get you the information for Drumclog.  My exhaust silencers need repacked after only 2 events.....

Cheers Brian

Congratulations Dave! Not only for completing it in time for the last Comp Safari but for achieving a finish first time out at Forrest Estate despite the little 'off'. Sounds good and will no doubt get faster as experience and confidence allow.

Hope you were happy sampling the fruits of your labour.

Calum.

Well impressive.  Have followed your thread and the end result had me watching the clip twice.  Well done and here's to some silverware going your way...
