Got to say its in good nick.
It was a shame to split it as it obviosly had been done recently.
I had to do it to check for wear n tear.
The crank casing has had a fooking good clean with gunk.
There is no contamination there now.
The only prob was the oil it was black and smelly.
These people should change the oil regular.
Going to garage to get pics now.

I already started on the side skirts.
Here you go, a show.
I am going to mint the car.
The underside is all welded up and under sealed.
It has a fresh respray n i am finishing it of as soon as i can.
There are a few fab items that need a tidy up.
The engine is going for rebuild soon and i will pop here in.
The plumbing and pipes will be the challenge

There are beefed up drive shafts on it that have larger dia bolts to hold them on.
So have 2 sets of drive shafts.
I will take the shafts of and put the standard ones on for now.
As soon as the car becomes mobile i can use the local garage to help upgrade as well.
To have the car running is the first aim.
I need to find the shaft bolt size so i can order a socket to replace the shafts.
They are larger than 32mm,wich i think is the mondeo bolt size.
i have a vernier so will buy a socket next weekend
