    Well gang, no posting from me for a while, but here's what I've been up to!
    Day 1, in the condition is was purchased:

    Straight in the shed to sure up the worst bits, e.g. just in front of rear wheel arch:

    With the sure-ing up doing, it was time to get an MOT!

    After 6 months of cruising around it was time to whack it in the shed, as I was off to Uni and the project was still only just starting! Engine out, donor purchased. (130 BHP 1.9 TDi, should make a nice jump over the N/A 1.6 Diesel)

    Shame the previous owner had had a bodge repair done to the drivers side quarter..

    The whole area under the drivers footwell was pretty scabby, so lots of welding sorted!

    And that is essentially where we stand! I'm hoping to have it on the road by Easter.

    Is this now active? I remember reading about it before :)

    You sticking with red? or is that just primer?

    It's been active for the past 18 months on and off, just never chucked a log up on here.

    The bright red at the bottom is just so cover it for now. If I ever get a spray it'll be the original colour of the bodywork.

    Do you mind if I move this to the 'General' forum? I believe we've had several car projects in there before - it's PCs only here unless you'll be adding one to the car at some point? :)
