Camaro update

Today Keith has finished the final assembly, which leaves only a few minor jobs to be done.
He has the cooliing system working, the electrical system sorted, likewise the carburation, fuel and the timing. The tyres are now inflated again and it fires on two cylinders when it turns over although the plugs need cleaning so that it will run properly.
Impressed? By the fact that I can write all this down, not by the jobs Keith has done! Let's get the right prespective on things here, folks!

  1. Yes! It works.
    Perhaps Keith should start a step-by-step blog of his work on the Camaro (and where the scissors are).

  2. The scissors have been returned but I'm afraid Keith is not into blogging or writing or any kind, so it's left to me to report on his behalf.

  3. I'm impressed, by your patience (sp?), understanding, and the fact that you haven't banished him to sleep in the camaro.LOL!

  5. Does Keith find it difficult to obtain replacement parts? He'd have to order them from the U.S, wouldn't he?

  6. No, they are available here and the person he bought the car from had a lot of the spare parts already.

  7. Oh for the days when you could open a car bonnet and do things for yourself, even if it was just changing the plugs or points. With modern cars, you need a degree in computer science just to put in petrol!
