Talking Well - It's finally in!

Yep - I managed to chuck the engine in yesterday:

After a lot of wiggling, jiggiling, swearing, use of the persuader and finally the trolly jack the gearbox crossmember went in:

I'm very glad that I didn't try and put this in without the gearbox. It was really tough.

Anyhow, I think it looks pretty good:

Certainly gives me more room in the garage!

The only downside of it is I've managed to chip the paint on the rocker cover - so I'll have to whip that off and re-do it.
