It WAS a rush to get ready and there are still lots of improvements to be made but I'm glad that I made it and it was good to meet up with some other AOers.
The comments were very favorable.
Those who didn't know about cars just thought it was "another car with the engine in the back"! There were a lot of those about!!
Some recognised it was a Sprint from the front, then were surprised/amazed to find an engine in the back.
Others were fascinated by the pictures which I had put in the boot, showing the original 6C and the build in highlights.
I now need to get the engine running, improve the fit of the rear bumper (the tail pipes have pulled the corners down), doors, bonnet and rear windows. attend to the appearance in the engine bay, tidy up the wiring, plumbing and braking pipework. Get it MoT'd etc etc.
I also think the oil cooler has a leak.....So LOTS to do
But it does look chunky sitting at the front - and we have an MX "sandwich" with two silver grey "hot hatches....?
