Hello guys and galls. My real name is Mark, i have started to rebuild my 86.

Tha story so far...

After wanting one for years and with the prices as they are in the UK i never thought i'd find one.
But i did, bloke had it for 13 years as a road rally/daily driver. Been stood for four years due to health reasons (his not the cars).
Its in a bit of a state with it been stood on his drive for all that time but it has a s/d cage in it, suspension has been fettled, q/rack, a few poly bushes here and there.

She needs a lot of TLC but hopefully i'll get round to making a start over the christmas break. I'll get some more pics up when i can.

Nothing a good sand blast won't cure.

I have ordered various parts ready to rebuild her once i have the shell finished such as bushes and a few battle version parts Tongue

Currently looking in to the use of coilover shocks on the rear, i have contacted a company here in the UK ref some progressive springs, we used these during my days racing KP61's on the dirt and gave plenty of grip.

WOW :!: You got your work cut out for you! And I thought mine was in a poor state Smile

Well, I'm happy to see that you are willing to take on a project like that Hurray! I'll follow your work bringing her back to the living for sure...

Sarcasme is just one of the things I offer Wink
