The time had come to take Lucas on his longest voyage in years (and the longest drive in my ownership, basically doubling the mileage I had done on the old engine), it was time to go to work.

Woah what a week it’s been! I have spent almost every night (Thursday was rest day) in the garage until well past my bedtime working on Lucas, trying to make sure I was on track.
What a weekend it’s been. So much coolant on the floor… and so much progress.
Well heck, it’s been a real rollercoaster recently, and things have been moving quickly…
Well, since my last update, it’s all gone downhill.
After the last big update, not much has happened with Lucas, except for me setting a deadline to have the car on the road again.
It’s been a lot of work, but Lucas has moved on considerably since the last post. I’ll break this down into bite-size chunks. This will be a massive post though as it’s a week or two of work.
It’ll be of no surprise to anyone that I have just dug deep and cracked on with this. With no choice in the matter, I had to fix it. I want my garage back for the daily.
As part of my continuous programme to improve Lucas, I wanted to get the tailgate lock working. The latch and release worked, but the key wouldn’t turn.
