Hoses are a combination of Lindsey Racing (they make up a full set for the car) and ASH (AutoSiliconeHoses.com) for extra bits.

It's not the Americans, it's our Government, it's called import duty (tax)
I was looking at buying a watch, import duty scuppered that. 😠
I pay more than my share through tax PAYE !

also not today but few days ago finally  got sick of seeing my 944 turbo head on my workshop bench at home and made a home preasure testing rig to check for any hairline cracks in the head. then on the phone to John at serdi with a few questions on my head  sliming and guide work he did for me on the rebuikd process, and he said bring it down so they can cast an eye over the surface just incase they missed something and that’s why i’m getting co2 in the water jacket, so when i found out they have a got preasure tester which i didn’t think they did have , i took them up on the offer and drove down to drop it off and have a long chat about my theories and there’s. 
 
cant express how glad i am that i’ve finally got the ball rolling as my life at home and with the kids and two new busineses i’ve been witking on launching has just left the 944 turbo day there neglected. 
 
i also managed to buy a mint looking 944 turbo head which is a year newer than mine 1988 and not seen one for sale this good ever! so i have a back up now all be it i would have to swap over my oil valve. so the ball is deffinately rolling for sure and fingers crossed they find something but john reckons it could just be the finish wasn’t quite 100% ??? we’ll see. 
 
i truly miss my 944 turbo now !!😩

Car failed MOT on control arm ball joint and both front side lights too dull.
 
I bought a new control arm from Germany and had it fitted so went to tackle the light bulbs today.  First side was quite easy, screws were rusty but came out, changed the bulb and put back in with new screws.  The second side is still in, there’s massive rusty screws in there, 2 came out but the 2 on the other side turn but don’t come out.  I spent ages trying but have stopped now before I break it due to frustration, assuming I will need to drill the heads off them but I’m going to leave that for another day, very annoying but not surprising!
 
**Edited to say after calming down for 30 minutes I went back out and managed to pull it out with pliers, both lights now working so looking forward to my retest now**

MOT passed today so the above hassle with the lights was worth it in the end!
