Well my plans for conquering europe in May are ruined because covid-19 beat me to it! ](*,) But at least my car is ready for an MOT!!! She aint perfect, a little rough around the edges so there are plenty of little jobs and the odd bit to sort out i know. haha.

Well I have managed to get 130 miles on it since I last posted, no real issues yet. The side windows on the doors are being a pain to set up, the diff has a slight weep. I think I may need new drive shafts also. I also found a couple of loose bolts but all in all nothing major really.

Anyone got any ideas where to find high quality shafts for an e28 based car?
