Nice.....I watched that video and depending on the camera angle I went from "jesus your garage is huge" to "wowzers that's a small garage"

There is only one thing in life worse than not owning a Delorean.
Owning one which is not running...

Hi all

Its been a while since my last update, not massive amounts done but some good progress, since test fitting the body i took the whole lot apart again and the Chavved banana sprang into action to take the chassis to the galv and p coat place (same place the D chassis went too) ...

So now ive got the chassis back its time to start refurbing everything else and rebuilding it !

In the mean time since the last update Ive also bought a few engines to make the best one i can out of all the bits, Dan S came over for the day for an engine day and we got his engine running and also one of mine running too so thats a good start !
