Hi I have been tied up with other things of late and have not been able to get to the car, but hope to make a start again soon.

It is annoying the way the outside world keeps invading our chosen path.

Over the last feu months I have decided to change the engine and box as at the start I was set on an American engine but was talked out of this, so I have gone back to where I wanted to be at the start but the long way round. I have got my self a Dodge 318 engine and manual box and a back axel, this has resulted in some major change to chasse but now back on all four wheels so progress of sorts. That's the forth engine I have tried so that where I am going to stay and now I feel I am in the right place with what I have so back to getting on with the car but sure it will through a curved ball at me some time soon. The chasse was split in two and widened by a 100mm back frame changed new engine and box mounts made and new rear suspension so not to much have to have fun some times.

When you change your mind it is a bit of a big deal. Chop the Chassis etc. Still, you have a nice workshop. Go for it!
