Yer cant wait meself,his mate "should" be bringing his samba bk out after a while off the road aswell so that should be fun-got a few mates with projects at the mo another ones just bought a mk1 fiesta off another mate thats stripped caged etc an he were on about puttin a zetec in it-same mate text me a pic of a mk2 escort van he bought last wkend an ive no idea yet whats happening with that(though got another mate john with a cossie engine in a mk1 escort van-though doubt he`ll go that far)and brens still doin the mk1 astra gte.

I`ll keep updating as he does a bit more,he`s been let down by the bloke doing the montecarlo arches for the back,lee`s had an extra inch width on them to compensate for the 12in wide rims goin on the bk and the swage lines dont line up right so he`s gotta get some more made,luckily hasnt got the wheels yet so aint like its much of a hold up as such.
