Chris when you come to Billing can you bring my pair of rear wheel arch repair panels that you borrowed to get someone interested in making some - seems to have gone cold and i might be needing the the repair sections :roll:
Cheers

A bit of a big update this time, the car has moved home once again. It now sits in a warm underfloor heated workshop at the university i'm studying at (and working at, hence why it's in the workshop) as the engineering societies project vehicle.

It now has engine, box firmly in place, been welded and had a respray, in a rather fetching burnt orange.

Slowly now putting bits and bobs back on, and sending other parts off for repair and restoration, such as the dash, slotmags and chromework. ECU is about to be bought and eventually the exhaust system will be looked at!

So here are some pictures:

This should be last time the Firenza is on a trailer, it's gone down to a small garage I know to have the ECU wired in and few other little jobs done as well as an MOT. Unfortunately it won't have the interior complete as everywhere seems to have a huge waiting list near me.
