The engine and box were no good so they had to go so i found a decent 2.25 diesel series 3 and a series 3 gearbox wich ive fitted starts straight up with the new type glow plugs. I fitted a brand new clutch before i put the engine and box back in.Tyres are all good plenty of tread. The body is more or less straight and in good nic drivers wing is the worst where it has been bent in abit but didnt bother me. The clutch pedal and box is of a series 3. There is still work to do mind but the hard parts and time consuming bits are done. It just needs that final push for the finish. Im pretty sure some one with a little now how will soon have this done as its well worth completeing. Well what needs doing to finish well a fair bit if im honest but most of its easy machanics stuff id say the wiring side is probs the hardest but not thst complicated as these are fsirly simple layouts with plenty of reference from forooms , clubs or even google. Exhaust needs fitting it will need a new one from middle to back.
Wiring needs sorting completley or just re conect it to the dash panel ill leave that up to you. Front springs need bolting up. Rear shocks need fitting i have new ones. Brake master needs new rubber seals. Need new seat bottoms x3 or sorce some good second hand ones.
And other bits and bobs like fit heater matrix etc. Sorry to let it go but needs must and its far far from scrap like most you see.
