Yip Thanks guys

Hoping to finish it off this weekend and get some miles on it before going to the track.

Considering the idea of fitting an LS V8 into my other Rover project when the race car is finally done :D

Hi Pieter

No unfortunately, need to have a look at insurance claimed cars, maybe finding a wrecked Lumina at places like SMD that sell accident rebuilds etc.

Well after lots of delays etc etc and another 8 months down the line there is light at the end of the tunnel.

The beast has awakened :D it has now been 2 years 3 months since the complete refurbishment of the car.
