Hopefully not asbestos lagging on the exhaust...
It's a stainless braid round the flexi section..
Not the flexi section - the manifold! Certainly looks like it could contain asbestos...

A good start...just the other 999,999 jobs to do.
And that's just on this car :roll: Was informed on Friday that the volume of work we have had during lockdown will carry on until 'at least' the new year, so no hope of much progress this year. Therefore there's no point in stripping the engine until the underneath of the car has been completely sorted. Still hoping I can get that done before winter kicks in but any work done will be on a piecemeal basis.

I had hoped that both Goldie and the Sinker would be on the road this year but that's not practical now. Even finding a wire so I can test Goldie is stretching time out. More pressing things arise pushing things like this down the list.
