Cheers guys.
Well may as well tell you all, I'm under the gun now :crazy:
I've entered it in a 10 hour endurance race early next year :waycool:

So I need to get it done in time to do Willow-glen and Toperi both for practice and to find and train a Navi.

Also might make some radical changes to the suspension now I've got the 80 to play with on weekends.
If I do I will be looking for another Lux to put the running gear from this one into. :p

Oh, and also now have a high mount for it:waycool:

Cheers mate, it's funny that somebody bumped this, was talking to an engine guy about it today.

Not sure if I should leave it as is and finish it or do something really stupid......:drink:

lol, bit sad, I've raided a few parts off it for customers cars :o

But, I've sort of settled on a direction for it and have started sourcing parts.

Bring on Cliffhanger Survivor 2011 :waycool:

Mechanic, though not by trade. more of a Jack of all trades.

Still collecting bits. hopefully I'll get started on it again this week.
I've promised myself that when I'm not out wheeling the 80 I'll spend a minimum of 8 hours a week on it :eek:
