Work in progress
Great to see you've found what you were after.
I shall watch your project log with great interest.
Cheers @SpeedyGee i get the whole garage thing now. Newbie and all that
Nice little project car @Beefy, she'll keep you busy for a while
Stick your main posts like one above in the Project Log itself mate.
It's going to be long term I think. Just a bit at a time, ime getting the majority of it sorted out while it's off the road. That way I can save up for the Insurance and tax without skinting myself. Ime sure with the minimum of work I can make a profit anyhow. Obviously if I was to make it mint it will cost more than the re-sale value. Ide say I've got around £300 to play with and still sell with a profit if I went down that route
Champion Beef, you will get that old girl fixed soon.
It'll make a nice car with a bit of time and money.
Glad to see you finally found yourself a nice little car, what costs are you looking at to put her right, obviously you are lucky being a trained honda mechanic....lol
