well stripped it today and its not dropped a valve but no1 cylinder was full of emulsified oil so recon it was just unable to turn over because of that, certainly no sign of any damage

heres this afternoons work







get it skimmed and pressure tested to see whats what

now some may have noticed it has the chrome 25 lights on it, well its been in a bump at some point so decided to strip front off to see whats what, its the original slam panel thats on it so must have been very low speed, the crash bar was missing so going to get one saturday then paint everything matt black under there

no not written off but its had a low speed bump at the front because the crash bar was missing and had the wrong headlights,

the full brm interior came today and im chuffed to bits with it, wasnt completely sure how it would look but it looks brilliant, i think because the cars fairly dark inside and the seats are a wine colour they look brilliant:D

interior came with seats, steering wheel, red carpet, red leather handbrake, brm gearknob and the doorcards, look brilliant and good value at £113

tanya wasnt sure about the interior but she absolutely loves it now shes seen it and sat in it, so shes going to be getting it:)
