Sorry to hear, sounds nasty. I guess you weren't able to take any photos.

Exactly the same, although i don't have any pics. Was watched intently by a woman as I left. Don't know if she didn't know what it was or was just disgusted.

i got my nice new shiny plasma cutter out today :D
i've got a load of escort front crossmembers to cut the rack mounts off of and weld new ones on in the right place #-o
it's all extra pocket money to spend on the valiant and i'd previously made a jig to hold the rack mounts so they don't take long. from memory my mate said the batch that was wrong was only about 100 and he's dropping off 20 at a time.

ashley arrived lunchtime today with the back of his voyager dragging it's backside. one of the units where he works was having now racking fitted and had put the old stuff out for the scrap man. it's proper pallet racking so good and strong. i'll narrow it down to 2 feet wide shelf size and to the right height for my shed but i'm well chuffed. i've roped terri in to help me alter it all and set it up on tuesday.

terri and me disassembled the racking sections today, cut them to size with my new shiny plasma cutter and reassembled them in the shed with wooden shelves. there's enough left to fit a third 'bay' across the back in the corner, but for now i can at least start to stack stuff out of the way on and under the shelves. :D

Almost!
Drives far to good for its age ! Got a list of upgrades to do over the winter, Got a very nice TA rear Ducktail spoiler to fit, new wheels and Tyres,
New fuel tank/sender, new Ratchet Type shifter, Going to fully line the trunk area, to increase sound reduction in the cabin, plus about 100 others things :D
Im looking at buying a Glass TA hood, billet hinges, so i can use reduced power gas rams, but this aint a casual purchase, and my work is going back on Furlough so this will have to wait a tad longer....................................

Something i have noticed now ive a few good miles on the resto, is the car out handles its seat! when pushing it we could deffo go quicker through the bendy bits if i could stay in the seat lol..........................
Bummer my car has a porn star white/ivory interior , so changing the front seat to ones that have lateral support would be a major issue,

What wheels did you go for in the end, 15"? Would be good to see the progress.

Hav'nt brought the Rims or Tyre's yet, ive been hanging on to as much cash as i can , ive been looking for another car to do, virtually given the idea up now, as the prices are just too strong for my budget,

I'l go for traditional Wheels like your ones, and yes i'l stay with 15", got plenty of time, i'l pull the car apart in January, hence why im getting the bits together now,
