Me happy too!! Its a mess at mo but time and money. It will never be as quick as Westy but i need a new project. I need to buy a turbo so doing fair bit of research and he was running it on standard clutch so couldnt have been over 200bhp...
I need to torsen it , clutch it, replacement turbo. Map it...then start on handling.

That looks like it going to be lots of fun

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

Would getting the existing belts remade with new webbing be (£) realistic? Easier and safer than relying on second hand plus you can choose the colour! (Says the man who sheathed a seatbelt with vinyl to hide the 50% of it melted by careless welding and get the car through several MOT's - different days!)  Quickfit Safety Belt Services (Stanmore, W. London) do it but there's bound to be more places.
