I always wanted an RSP as these were in the showroom I used to walk past when I left school. I bought it from Roger over at the RSP Register who rescued it from a guy that took it apart and gave up. So it needed someone that was slightly deranged to try to put it back together and along came me.
The front scuttle, wings, A panels and outer sills were removed by the last guy and the engine and gearbox stripped of most of the nuts and bolts. I don't know if the guy was saving the nuts and bolts for something but they are not with the car. The block has worn cylinder liners and the crank had a shell stuck to one of the journals so needs a grind. The floors have holes, the rear inner wheel arches are toast, the bins have holes, the healboard is rotten, the boot floor is rotten, the back panel is rotten. The roof looks ok.
I like to have something to do so this will keep me busy for at least a few years.
So its easy to see why its called Black Ugly!
I'll keep adding a few pictures as the welding progresses, below are the pics I took when I went to look at the car.
