The code name for the mission to finally extract the GT from the garage and back on the road.
It won't be cheap and although most of the jobs will be achievable by a part way qualified home mechanic, some will need an expert hand. And that's where my old friend John Storrie comes into the project.
John is renowned as Mr Kettle in England. A SOC life member, like me, and also he was a founder member of the Kettle Club. In fact it was at a SOC camping weekend in Oxfordshire that it was born. One that caused some problems back in the day!
For a variety of reasons the project won't happen until the summer as my commitments at weekends don't leave much time.
I also need to get all the parts I have assembled together in one box.
I have already got a lot in stock and I have ordered three carburettor rebuild kits and new NGK spark plugs.
