Sorry, my mistake, the price was correct...so many figures were discussed I got confused...not uncommon!

Anyone got a manual gearbox spare?

What kind of condition is the car in a Chris? What are the major jobs that need doing? And are we to assume you bought the car and are changing the gearbox?! :D

A quick update folks. The frame is ok, bits of missing epoxy but no actual rot. Touched up with paint and blasted Waxoyl into the cavities. The interior has cleaned up nicely, nearly as good as its sister car. Took me a month to get the engine running. Again, nothing too serious apart from the usual, water pump hoses, idler bearings, belts etc etc.

The brakes have been a real challenge, on the final run now...everything needed doing.....getting stuff undone was a nightmare...3 foot spanners and a gallon of WD40, applied over many weeks......hot air guns...even on my lift it was hard work.

I'm hoping to get in on the road in the next couple of months, no rush, I'm enjoying working on it and driving the other one.....which still goes like stink!
