Smile Welcome to the forum

Welcome to the forum Enoch

I see you have had plenty of sound advice already

The best option, budget wise, is to just use what comes from the donor.

Sierra 1.8 CVH or the rarer Pinto will do just fine. Saloon,Hatch or Estate, all suitable.

This will make sure that your nuts are preserved

Once she is hooked on the thrill...............Tap her up for a bigger one !!??

OK, so I am now actively looking for a Sierra, not found one yet but time is on my side. I have authorisation from swmbo (she who must be obeyed) only proviso being I have to sell one of my steam locos to pay for it all. Haven't touched the bloody thing for years anyway The book is on order from Amazon, I have a mountain of welding rods, I have sourced about 40 metres of 25mm sq steel tube for just under an 'undred quid. Christ I must be going for it
Got to get me garage roof fixed before I do anything, it is not what you might call water tight.
Thanks to everyone for all the advise, having spent many hours on this forum it looks like there are some top blokes on here. It's so nice to see people exchanging ideas and giving time to their fellow builders.
Regards to all,
Enoch.

Hi Andy, yes I know I need 19mm, I thought I would get that a bit later. What are the CP plates? Not familiar with that - have seen them mentioned in several posts but don't know what they are. As for location I am in Bracknell Berkshire.
