Thought i would let you all know whats happening as im stuck at home bored for a few days recovering from food poisoning frown

Well, i took the car to Forres, 30 miles east on Inverness on Sunday.
Work started on wednesday on stripping it down and sorting everything out. Spoke to the boss today as im sending him some bits up to go on the car and it turns out that i snapped a conrod connecting bolt which caused the rod to come out the top of the block. Also bent 2 valves but the cylinder heads are still ok. Should have the engine all rebuilt and in the car by tuesday awaiting the new headers which im sending tomorrow then he will be giving it a turn over.
Looking good and they have made good progress on it. New clutch has gone in too, should be all done for me by Friday so fingers crossed ill be going to pick her up a week on tuesday laugh still have a lot of work to do on it when i get it back though but at least it will be drivable.
