Default New project - probably my biggest challenge yet.

Like I needed another project... but anyway, took delivery of this today, it has been on my radar for a while as one that needs saving. How right I was!

The owner didnít have it for long and as reported on here, it has been through a few owners recently.

Lots and lots and lots of work required to get it back to a good state.

Well at least you had the sense to get an oil burner rather than a 1.8

Have fun mate, I quite like the colour too, the thing I like about project cars is that when you put something back together and then look at what you have done it makes you feel happy again knowing itís been done properly, also with a project car your not normally up against a time restraint
Will look forward to seeing it come along
Nice one mate
Mick
