Had the car on test runs the past few nights-engines all good so far. All the bits (bar 1) are back on-
have niggles with the bouncy speedo, but that just needs a new drive. an indicator that doesn't like its earth. and windows that don't go up straight-just like driving the vectra...

The car got to billing (& back) ok.
considering all the rain we had car only had 2 leaks-front screen rubber which i know needs replacing & petrol pipe rubber in the boot (which i need to aquire). As billing didnt really happen im lost what to do...i spent 3 months cleaning,polishing,painting.it took over everything, suppose i'll have to buy another & start again :goodideasign:

Bit of a let down I bet. Always next year! Plenty of cars need rescuing if you really feel the urge to do another!!
