That'd be surely. Hoarder alright! Lads the scale of that project goes way beyond what's been posted. The work and sheer hours of dedication gone into it to have it really perfect it simply unreal. It's not just the 166 he's building either...

That'd be me cheers for linking the thread!

It was a very long journey, the bang on the back was very very hard to get right, finding one thing after another going wrong, but with the help of 2 donor cars this one can live on for many years my aim was to remove the previous evidence of mistreatment and shoddy work, I'm sure to find more yet. For now, it is almost done. Just a few small bits left and a good service I'm looking foreward to seeing it on the road

Did you see my other thread, on my 156.....?

Fantastic job Hoarder. There must be hours of labour poured into the project (not to mention Euros, along with the inevitable skint fingers and issuing of the obligatory holy swear words!!)

Keep up the good work!

For those following, the car is now with it's new owner, a very happy chappy. It still needs niggly little bits here and there but as a project my end is complete, save NCT time when they'll surely throw up various suspension faults...

Here's a blatently stolen picture of it in it's new habitat

All the best to the new owner and many happy years of driving
