Default Good Home Required....

Thanks everyone for your replies, I completely understand what you are saying but times and circumstances have changed for the foreseeable future. I have made a decision to spend more time with my family without having something like this to distract me.
I now spend more time away from home than I like and the time that I do have I spend doing things with my children.
OK now down to business...

SPECIFICATIONS/PARTS
Front and rear suspension fully adjustable with rose joints and poly bushes powder coated black. Front suspension also has built in camber adjustment.
Protech shock absorbers with springs front and rear.
Front and rear brake calipers sand blasted and painted black.
New front and rear brake discs and pads fitted.
Fuel lines and electrical wiring fitted front to back.
Aluminum fuel tank fitted and plumbed in.
New handbrake cables and handbrake fitted.
Clutch, brake and accelerator pedals fitted and plumbed in.
Engine painted and fitted, differential painted and fitted and prop shaft shortened and balanced and fitted.
New battery fitted and connected.
New radiator, cooling pipes and expansion tank plumbed in.
New air inlet filter fitted.
Dashboard and instrument cluster made and ready for installing.
Drivers seat with 4-point harness.
Rear diffuser painted black.
Rear equinox wings ready to bolt on.
Front Westfield wings in black.
Front SVC headlights.
Front indicators installed.
AGM bodykit fitted.
Full stainless steel exhaust system fitted.
and many more etc.....

Anyone interested please look on this build thread for photos.

Special Christmas price of £1750.00 ONO.

If you are interested please reply on this thread as it will come through to my phone.

At some time in the future when I have more time available I will probably start a new build.

I would like to think someone on here would be interested as I know it would go to a good home.

Thanks Johno

I thought about it, do I really need two nearly finished builds?, one at home, one up north at the GFs...... mmmmmm tempting.
How much £ do you think it needs on parts to get it finished?

Hi all,
I've really enjoyed building the car and learning a lot and it's been fun talking to all you guys .
Basically since my father passed away I have felt the need to spend all my free time with the children hence the reason at the moment for moving on.

What's left to do on the car....
Purchases
Seat (Kit parts direct) £100
Harness £90
Rear lights £100
Flexible brake pipes.
To be honest I think that's pretty much it.

Hi Mike,
Haven't started it yet but donor car was a runner before putting it in Roadster.
I'm live in Lutton near Spalding Lincolnshire about 30 miles from Peterborough.
