Now I just need the room, time and money to do it!

Doesn't look much like a Turbo :)

That's a challenge ;)

I agree with Pete!

That is a challenge!

What do they say about buying the most complete example to restore?

Good luck

Might be a challenging project but at least you've got the other one to copy bits and check for reference, worst case you've got loads of spares ;)

they're so crammed full of "delicate" elecktrickery bits that i think that may be beyond repair, not to mention exhaust parts anf the turbo, but maybe a source of spares for frame/engine

I have a tail piece ( needs painting but complete) and a NOS side panel ( although it is cracked and needs painting but repairable) if youre interested in purchasing them!

It's mostly there, including all the bodywork etc, the rest of it's in boxes, all that seems to be missing is the headlight and silencer - neither a massive problem (I hope :? !)...
and I'll have the panels off you bobster - how much you want?
