Absolutely! I’ll get it up in the events section a few weeks before :thumbup

In the mean time last weeks run to Bicester highlighted that I had a leak from the radiator. On my bis I had a plastic bleed screw on the top of the rad which is unusual as all the others I have encountered have all been a metal 13mm bolt. Needless to say it was weeping and the moment I turned it, it snapped DOH! So today’s job was sorting that. So out with the rad and luckily I had a spare 13mm nut from an old rad had previously kept. It turned out not to be a wasted day as I fitted another cooling fan bought from last years NEC motor show which was about an inch bigger and has curved fins so will better cool the engine. I also took the opportunity to fit my stiffer sports engine mounting spring and polyurethane bushes. Their not technically for the bis model they in fact fit a 126p but seemingly it all fits nonetheless even though they are very different to look at. I haven’t road tested it yet but no doubt it’ll give more vibrations but hopefully less engine wobble on drive take up.

Dug these out of the garage the other day. They’ve been in wheel bags since October 2017 so I decided to fit them for this year’s use (well until I pull my finger out and paint my x19 speedlines).





I thought they looked a little plain the last time they were on so I’ve painted the centres gloss black.

Had a great day out at the Autoitalia brooklands show. Luigi performed faultlessly doing the 2 hour drive each way without missing a beat! :thumbup  out of the 1000 plus cars on show that day there were only one other 126 there - a very tidy red aircooled - which must mean that the 126 is rarer than some of the more exotic cars on show :P
