Just spoken with the guy who did the rebuilds, and he knew who I was, and expected a call from me as hes spoken with RB.
Naturally he wants the car back in Essex (Where he is now based) as the labour wont cost him there, but Im very reluctant to send the car back to someone who has messed it up on 2 previous occasions
It may be a case of biting the bullit here and paying "some" of the costs to get the car sorted up here with a fresh pair of eyes / hands on the job.
The rebuilders argument is that he doesn know how the car has been driven for the last 2k miles, which is a fair comment, and very hard for me to prove either way, though my argement is Ive had modded cars for 5+ years and not had a problem over 60k miles in other cars.
He is currently calling RB to try and sort something out, TBH, Id rather pay £2k ish and get it doen right, up here, than send her back down there
