    Thanks to great help from Andy and George (Fubar and Pobody) the engine and gearbox is now back in the engine bay. Just got 101 parts to re-fit but pleased the project has some momentum again.

    No. The car went off the road 8 years ago. Family, work and house projects all came first. About 2 years ago I sorted the engine but been busy since. Now the engine and box is in, I can plod through the rest

    Crikey! That's some wait. Life does get in the way though and kudos for not just selling it off.

    I did have a conversation with Mrs campbellju about how it would be easier to sell once it was running again... it's the same conversation I've had my my own wife. :cool:

    And as we were saying 15 years ago it looked like an old chavved up ugly golf. Now I think it looks retro cool. Plan is get back on the road, enjoy it and see what lives serves up.

    Hi Zia, glad to see you're still around too.

    Sadly today I spent no time on the car :-( The house dominated again :-(
