Work I had done;
Changed the short shifter back to the original. (so much better!)
Swapped the pressure valve which had been causing an oil leak.
Rewired the boot wiring loom as the back wiper and heated windscreen wasn't working.
Changed the valve cover to a reconditioned one I got on eBay.
Changed the gearbox oil.
Fitted a s/s clutch hose.
Fitted a new door seal (had a slight leak).
Sorted the noisy power steering, don't know what he did to fix it.
Gave the engine a once over, checked all the belts etc.

I supplied all the parts not including the oils and door seal.

It all came to £350. Not bad I reckon.
Good deal

I had a look at all the past receipts from previous owners. A lot of the maintenance etc was carried out by a garage in London and the price they were charged was crazy!
