well this is how i got on today

i had a job to do early this moring so i didnt get to the shed till about 12 and i wanted to go home before 3 as i wanted to watch the f1

so i started stripping off all the rad hoses ect

Image

and i noticed a bit off a mark on the slam panel

Image

once i took out the radiator i found a few problems

Image

the car at some stage has had a fight with a lampost and lost

and the rad pipes where caked solid with *Bleep*

Image

not good :rolleyes: also i noticed that at some stage the engine has been frozen solid and the ice ect has forced out a core plug

Image

so got stuck in and pulled the engine out

Image

Image

then went home and watched the f1

not bad for a couple off hours :thumb:

Dosent bode well for the engine. Can the body damage be sorted with out too much difficulty?
