I'm sure it'll sound familar but i'm busy uncovering a fibreglass coating on all the rust in the boot floor. It looked solid until my battery box almost fell out the bottom of the car.

No where near as bad as some, but today, I discovered that the inlet and exhaust manifold where held onto cylinder head… finger tight and the previous owner used superglue to hold the cork rocker gasket to the rocker cover…………grrrrr

Is it a thing to use sealant on a head gasket? I never have as I thought you weren't supposed to but if it's something I should do then I'm happy to be corrected
