First step, throw a couple of spares into the boot (and a subwoofer, but in fairness, it was already there!!)
Check fluids etc, then better put the bonnet on!!
The delightful Tricia helped with the bonnet, and it went on remarkably easily!!
Close the bonnet, it's time for a test drive!!
Check out those flash lights!!
Uh oh... there's a hideous noise coming from under Booger Mobile, like metal grinding on metal... Damian jacked it up and identified that the noise was coming from the lower bell housing cover.

Having gone back through photos all the way to September 2010, Damian found a picture of the cover correctly installed, and worked out that he had it on back to front... After turning it around, it was quiet as a mouse!!
Back out on the road for a long test drive... Oil pressure and temperature good, Booger Mobile was driving beautifully!!
And more flash lights...
Back in the shed, Booger Mobile looked resplendant!!
Still flashing those lights...
And the passenger side, looking decidedly bare...
Well, it wasn't quite smooth sailing, but all's well that ends well!! Damian is pretty confident that he will get to scrutineering on Sunday with Booger Mobile!!
