    So the boring bit, cleaning, the long engine had been rebuilt a few years ago but all the ancillaries and bolt on bits have been sitting in bins and buckets for 15 years at a guess, had the injectors sent away, cleaned and tested too

    Can you not just send your engine parts for vapor/hydro blasting mate a place local to me do it for very little money. They come back better than from the factory

    my plan for now is to do a “first build” get everything in and working, do all the alterations if needed, make sure it’s all good then strip it again to a complete bare shell to do all the bodywork and that’s when I’ll do the proper job of getting everything looking right.

    also most of the stuff is hidden by the air box anyway

    Dry builds are the way forward. Check out "Project Binky" on YouTube if you haven't already. Dry build and fabrication galore.

    Little bit done today, oil cooler sandwich plate removed and 8v baffle with fixed rubber gaskets used, those with a good eye will notice the scalloped crank, the bottom end is a 20XE so has the lighter crank and forged 86p pistons also pulled out the old 1.2, very happy with how little corrosion there is in the legs !

    So, threw a new clutch kit at the engine, new crank sensor, dropped it in the nova. One thing I didn?t know, I had to have the gearbox mount bolted to the chassis before putting the engine and box in place or else I couldn?t get the mount bolt in place, other than that it was nice and easy to get in there
