took a couple of days off work to move the car on as I'm booked in for a rally early March. I still have lots to do and i haven't enjoyed spraying the car in a small freezing cold garage,

this was the ground that was still left in the airbox after the crash. the engine had to have a full strip down and rebuild.

Sh1tty luck, having to rebuild the engine just 'cos you've had a shunt!

it has taken 5 months of evenings and weekends with what started off as a quick fix ended up fitting a body kit, respraying, sorting the wiring out, replacing the rear arms, rebuilding the engine, fitting plastic windows and fitting an electric heated screen.
