A local company are doing me a boc bottle for 73 a year rental and 33 for refills it's 1 meter tall bottle. Seems like a reasonable deal. Erm were did you get those little plastic blocks from for the jig? And what are they? Can't find the little buggers anywhere!

the little plastic blocks tend to be the ones that hold most kitchen cabinets together so hardware section of b and q or screwfix/toolstation etc

I got a bag of 100 of those little blocks off ebay, which is more than enough! Try searching for 'modesty blocks'.

After a bit of a delay I finally got started on my rear end yesterday and got the diff cage tacked into place:




This evening I borrowed my mate's crane and whipped the engine out of the donor:



She's looking very sorry for herself now. Poor thing!

Not all of it yet, but a fair bit has gone.
Interior wise I've sold the dash, radio surround, heater controls, hazard switch, seat belt stalks, drivers seat belt, seats, runners, one door pull/handle, style bar, chrome vent rings, cluster cowl, floor console, gear knob, ashtray, window switches, sill plates, and floor mats. Still got all the carpets, door cards, and some bits of plastic trim. I'm sure they'll go eventually though!
None of it went for much, but it soon mounts up.
So far I've got about 410 back from the donor after postage and ebay/paypal fees. Another 90 and I'll break even
