That's a very cool distraction Chris

I like Imps very much

The 924 rebuild is getting pushed back until this is finished as I need the space in the garage

I thought I was making progress, but it looks like the engine is coming out again as the clutch won't disengage

got as far as cranking over, a spark and actually firing up was still a bit optimistic

it was last taxed in 1987 and I've owned it since about 2002, so it would be nice to get to use it finally

Awesome.

My dad used to do production car trials in the 70's in his (Mum as ballast!), got a loft full of trophies (he was pretty good at it apparently)
Drive to work all week, trials on saturday rebuild the engine in the sink on sunday, repeat.
Awesome.
