Now home again. Long day of driving but all worth it. Now have a garage so full of bodyshell and parts that I have no idea how I'm going to fit in to work on it!! :thumbsup:

Family birthday tonight so have not had a chance to take any pictures but will try and get some done tomorrow.

You should know [email protected] your one of my best customers :grin: :tongue:

I sold my my 320 bhp scooby late last year so had some cash left over from that paid of some debts and was genarally just a lot better off.

Plus because Pete and I are buying a lot of the same bits we're able to do a bit of group buy good prices sort of thing :cheese:

But with a bit of luck I won't need to buy anything for a while and can just get on building it!

Looking through the front of the car to the back should give you a better idea of exactly how much was removed!!!

Now for the bad news... I gotta have an operation on Wednesday so won't be able to much to it for a few weeks or so! :angry:

Will be at home no more than 10 feet from the car but unable to touch it.... it just too depressing to think about! But once I'm back on my feet it should start to fly together :lol:

Will keep you updated with anymore progress as it happens.
