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.

Have a look at my build thread, plan is to be on the road this year, shout out if you need any bits or want to know where to get them.

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. 

Where abouts are you based?

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?

Rego is dead on it. Wonder if it’s still hiding in someone’s shed or it’s rebar in a building somewhere 

Reba, haha. I was going to have a look at that today. Nice looking car!!!
