Cheers for replys, yes shouldnt take long Pete when i eventually cut the rusty metal out and start, eh up Craig, just gonna do the usual mate, cut , weld , paint 5 speed box, keeping the old faithful pinto lump, its got a single carb on it - not a weber?,  so ill eventually put a twin choke weber on it. Its missing a passenger side door card  the arm rest on the n/s rear door card, and the dash surround is missing a piece  

Im going to eventually get all the seats re trimmed, im selling a few classic bikes and my Mini project, slicing down the toys so the Mk3 will be my main thing., plus ill have the cash to crack on with it. cant wait ! - dunno whats going on with the mileage on the speedo ,- remember the film Christine !

Not that it has got anything to do with me, just don't sell it after all your hard graft, if it's anything like your other motors it will be a minter!! and a keeper!!

Good luck with the resto.
