    I hate undoing someone's else's stuff, 99% of the time it's poor, at least this was so poor it was easy to get out :clapping:
    I often get offered jobs that someone else has cocked up, I tend to refuse them.

    i know what you mean, you end up doing more work in the long run. A mate who is a tattoo artist is the same - no part finished tattoos

    My old neighbour years ago used Polyfilla to repair his Ford Anglia sills and he was surprised when it fell out after it rained. He had put plenty in he said.

    Not really mate but i will be back on it very soon, just got so much customer work to get out of the way first, i'm not complaining though, thanks for asking, I've also been a bit busy building this, the racing bug is a terrible thing :laughing:

    Weight is 2700lbs, it has a 8/71 supercharger so bhp is dependant on how its driven but at 5psi it makes around 850bhp at 15psi its just over 1050bhp
