Well, finally back from the states.... Only for a week though! Spent the day tidying the garage out as everything stock piled on top of the car!

Hopefully I will get one day to spend on it.

Driving up the motorway yesterday with the sun beaming, watching a nice little train of 7's definitely got me motivated to own a completed car. Need to pull my finger out or find a builder!

Well hoorah, I finally managed to get a few hours on the build today.
Got the engine back with modified sump and bearing overhaul (credit to Kev), stripped it down for a good clean and paint.
Started to mock the gearbox and engine for mounting - nightmare as expected. Luckily there is a guy who lives not so far from me who could offer some advice.

So after some modification managed to get the box roughly in position and started to line up engine.

Previously I had a Zetec and type 9 mounted but the chassis plates for mounting were nowhere near.

But it has been quite an enjoyable day to be fair, hopefully get another couple of hours tomorrow.

Next steps: mount new chassis plates, fabricate engine / box mounts and install brake/fuel pipes.

On another plus side - I finally got the car rolling and pushed it in and out of the garage!!! (Can I call it a car yet?)

Pics to follow
