Cheers for doing such a stirling job on the Cortina, she drove fine on the way home (other than the bounce from them front springs) car feels well planted for a wobbly old cortina, sat nav says the speedo is about 2mph fast at 50 and 3mph out at 70, about the same at 120 mph probably  not sure about the gearing and the red line with no rev counter in it yet, but would have easily carried on picking up speed if the private test track had been longer and i knew what she was revving at.

Anyway, cheers for a good job at a good price and i didnt forget the clutch once. :D
