Hi Jerry,

I got front and rear strut braces OMP ones.
I also got new Gti fuel pump, Samco silicon hoses, TD04 turbo and engine will be here soon.
Once I get those on a palet, I will send it down to you.

Do you want me to make a turbo manifold or do you want me to send it down as a kit?

Cheers
Atchi

Hi,

Jerry has all the parts I bought.
I'm not in hurry so they are taking time off for a bit I guess!
They need to make money but not from me!

Cheers

The escort has gone back to my friend for him to finish off in his own time, all running & cage etc fitted. Needs some coilovers to adjust the height too :D

So we will get back on the mK 1 for Atchi :D

We have actually done a load of work on the MK1, but nothing much to show, steering column modified to work, pedal box modified. All shell welding just about finished.

While Jimbo is building my mk1, I'm building my Mini Gti.

R1 roars and Ducatti Super bike cans made nice Buuarr noise.
I just keep going out there and starting it even though my wife is getting annoyed!

I hope it works!

OK...

There is a progress now.

Andy aka Garndi got my car from Jimbo to finish as Jimbo is too busy to finish my car.
I will be going over to see it tomorrow afternoon so hopefully watch this space!

Cheers

Hi,

I don't want to bad mouth Jimbo but I think not working on the car for over 2 years and sea air where my car lived for last 2 years outside didn't help.

Andy is sending me a lot of photos as he progress(!?) my car and in many cases I wanted to cry.....

It is very much 2 steps forwards and 5 steps back but I hope my car's phase 1 build will be over in next 4 to 5 weeks.

Once again thank you very much to Andy, my hard earned cash is not wasted.

Cheers
Atchi

Sea air + outside living is not the best recipe.

Glad to hear there is some progress now, it is in good hands. \:D/
