You hear a million different running in procedures, had my forged motor built at YVS with the same 300 Mile running in procedure taking it upto about 5k revs on the a and b roads. All good so far.
Hope you get good weather for the mapping [thumleft]

Simon actually said "Engine's don't need running in, but if you can its best to do so"
anyway, its all done now, going to do the oil service in the next week, so that
its ready for the 27th with Fensport.

Whilst the car has been sat waiting for its mapping session on the 27th
a pal of mine that works for a very high end race car builder named
Crosthwaite & Gardiner Ltd ( specialise in hand building 1900's - 50's formula
race cars , costing on average 1 million + ) http://www.crosthwaiteandgardiner.com
said he would be able to Zinc plate any rusty metal parts on the car
that are small enough for free.
Mainly thinking of the exposed radiator brackets that hold the new Mishimoto
rad in place and the Aerocatch pins for the Carbon bonnet. But then I got a
little crazy and removed lots of bolts wherever I could.
. Suspension top mount bolts front and rear
. Toms strut brace bolts ( mounting and bracketing ) front and rear
. Body kit fastenings all round
. Engine lid latch bolts
. Rear OEM strut brace bolts
. Spare wheel retaining brace
And a lot more !

Here's a pic of just a few before the Zinc plating.



And a week later James returned them to me all shiny.




As you can see they have made a big difference in bringing the overall look
up a notch. One of those small things that makes a big difference.







Once this was all finished I turned my attention to the simple task of
the Oil and Filter change from the running in oil to Fuchs Titan Pro Race S
10W50 that I used before and will continue to use.



I had taken the rear wheels off to be able to get the rear PP spats fastenings
back in and because the space outside my garage is on a slight incline I used
my Jack to bring the car as low as possible to the ground on the rear once the
initial 4 & 1/2 or so litres had drained. My daily in the background
for Music purposes [Very Happy]




Sump sat nicely low and bleeding out the rest, along with my top trick of
blowing into the cam cover filler area to remove excess oil along way,
( Trust me it works lol )



However spent a little more time on the removal of the old filter then I should,
This was due to a lack of brain power. Tightened the filter opposed to
loosening, This required much hammer and screwdriver work to fix lol [Applause]



Anyway all back together. Drove down to the house and let it run for 5 minutes
then checked the level and topped up to the F line. All ready for mapping.
