Sam i'v just read the last post on your restoration thread, and seen the pics. I'm impressed with the lights mate. Mine arn't that bad but i'm going to do them at one point because it makes them look like new, presntaion counts. I'm not into cars with crazy body kits and that, I love a car to look pretty standard but just be super clean inside and out. Less is more is my motto, your lights look amazing. The guide is great too mate.

Good stuff.

well its running at the moment, so thats always a good start!
It went up to CC's this morning after a argument with the break down company, all my cars go up there but one snooty cow this morning said i would have to pay for it if it was over 30 miles.
As soon as i mentioned its got to go to a specialist and if they really wanted i could find one much further away...and there is nothing in the small print regarding recovery to garages and distance....she was happey to accommodate the request.

so its running, nothing more has exploded.....we will see what joe finds laugh

i got asked that the other day when i asked some one what to do,

the sensible option would be to break it, sell up and get a ford/vahxual put the money in my pocket and get a drug addiction going, perhaps heron?

because god knows that would probably be less damaging to my health, wallet, and friends and family!

if i had NO luck i would be happy, its just i get too much BAD luck laugh

Hope it works out for you mate, it is a shame if it is scrapped. You have just got to know your lImit really, if it was me would my love for the coupe cloud my judgement? Probably, hope it goes well at joe's mate.
