well that worked , needed to see if i could actually upload photos , the idiots guide worked just fine , starting a build thread , inspired by some of the work on show here , progress is likely to be slow as im only doing weekends due to the lockup being a 50+ mile round trip , this is how she was day 1 , 80k auto drove her back from wincanton , sweet as a nut .

Let me know how you get on with the sump guard, the last Hockley one I saw didn't fit too well

Just by chance Pete do you make/supply sump guards for E36 Compact? If so I would be interested in one for mine.

Cheers.
