Hi all, visited a few times and decided to join. Thanks for the add. Here's my old girl. Looking forward to picking everyone's brains to solve the odd issue.

First up is the issue of not wanting to start when hot. A common problem by the sound of it. Starts fine when cold. Needs to cool for 30 to 60 mins before it will start again. Until then it is as though the battery is flat. So far have tried heat shield to the starter motor and fitting a starter relay.
Next step I think is to pull the starter out - it only went in just before I bought the car 4 years ago but I have no idea of the quality.
Odd thing is it was never a problem before I took the car off the road Feb last year, but hasn't been right since Jan this year. All I did was put carpet in it.
