was the previous owner attempting a rebuild? 

The previous owner bought it after it had a respray. It then sat in his garage as he originally bought it to turn it into a racer but could never bring himself to take an angle grinder near it as it was too tidy to throw wide guards etc on. So it sat for over 10 years in the corner of his garage collecting dust.

Wow. That's awesome mate. Yea will do. Looks like the only bits I'm short on at the moment is some door cards, a clock and rear badges.

I bought that book last month and it arrived here on Thursday. Perfect timing!!! 

Might just take you up on the 1.6 badge and I really appreciate the links. Where would be the best place too for the decals?
