A crackin car........but a bit of a bugger to work on, I have two v6,s (one being a 12v cloverleaf) and a t/s spares car that I am taking apart for parts,
Best tips.......find your local A.R.O.C. night and go along, dont ever buy cheap tools......go to car boot sales you can get good spanners ect for buttons, and always check what your doing three times as mistakes can cost a fortune to put right, take your time and enjoy it so when you can drive she will be ready.
Good luck ,and any problems post them up.

ps......if you have not found the 164 digest on the web yet, its a good place for tech advice :)

What year is the car, and where are you Jack ?, I am breaking a facelift (94) 164 for parts and may have some of what you need.
