  22. right just a little up date, today i have just removed the sound deadening from the boot,and treated the cursty but solid metal in there to stop it getting any worse while its laid up, Right heres the dreaded floor pans to be honest this car isnt very solid at all but its saving grace is its tweeked 2.4 i dont realy no whats been done or what its got,but from what i remeber from years back its bloody quick,that may also get a rebuild aswell if i can twist daves arm into doing it again very crusty under here aswell again just treated the batery tray aswell. cheers
  23. hi, just thought i would post a few pictures of my new A series project,basically this car used to belong to my old man and it came up for sale on here a month ago and i decided to get my grubby hands on it, so i asked if dave (mantasrme on here) as he was local if he would pick it up for me and he said he would so we arranged a date and went to pick it up. wen we got back from essex we decided to get it running as it is a pain in the neck to push about,a few new rubber fuel pipes and some fresh juice it burst into life, with a rather noisy top end, so we shot some fresh oil and filter on and it now runs spot on,better than my gte hatch infact! after a good t cutting and wash more piccies ect as work progresses
  24. cheers dave for popping that pic up looks like i will be joining the club then!! mantadoc that will be much aprecited if you will look prices up ect for me can wee still join via paypal then? i did spot that boot lid but me and dave havent decided wich way to go with that yet cheers sean
