    Front strut turrets have had the rot cut out and welded up, that was quite challenging, the auto to manual conversion all done, front calipers replaced, rear rebuild kits on their way, tank drained and fresh fuel, lpg system finished (how long has it been Adaxo lol) and a myriad of little jobs too, fuel filler neck replacement, even one of the backlights in the climate control display. Felt amazing to see the dash all lit up again, I cannot officially think of nothing else lol

    I've just about finished the engine save for two missing pipes... I have one small vacuum pipe 'leftover' that I'll post a pic of in the hope someone recognises it. Other than that and one plate to weld in a sill end, it's all just about done I think well other than the 50+tiny jobs I will find that still need doing

    I'm not sure? One maybe. The other has a more bellows look to it, no braid? Hold up, will try pictures

    That is the bellows bit, doesn't seem to have a seperate part number anywhere. Goes to that plastic hardpipe that doesn't look particularly aerodynamic as it's been shaped to fit around everything else ��

    As for the other one, there are several of that braided type and I'm one short, they are only fitted by a process of elimination. If either can be made to fit I would take them
