New Joiner from London

Hi All,
I bought my 1970 S4 SE DHC back in December 2013 from a chap in Bradford, saw it on Car and classic website.
Engine very good, needs a new syncro in 2nd and the diff whines a bit but it goes like the clappers.
It is finished in a Ford Jade metallic green sort of colour which suits it well.
Just fitted a mohair hood and a Coolex "FatBoy" rad to cure overheating but that is still marginal in heavy traffic on a hot day.
It has a Spyder roll bar and side impact bars, Sue Miller drive shafts and a replaced galvanised chassis.
It's no trailer queen, never will be but I love it!
P.S. I was at the Castle Combe track day a couple of weeks ago in the rain! I hope that I didn't hold too many people up!

If it hasn't already been done, change the gearbox oil to Redline MTL to help the 2nd gear syncro problem.

Thanks Roger and Jeff.
I'll try the Redline MTLGearbox oil as suggested.
