So a small update for those wondering what happened to the car.
It was advertised for a short time, and having never sold a car like this before, I wasn't expecting the amount of messers and dreamers that I got, with stupid offers.... therefore the advert was taken down and I decided to keep the car for the mean time.
The car has been garaged for the last 12 months - kept in a warm, dry and alarmed garage, and hasn't seen any winter weather in probably 2 years.
Having inspected it recently, one of the shocks was leaking (seal gone) - which has been sent off to AST UK for repair - and the car needs an 02 sensor which will be replaced shortly.
Even after 3 months of no use, it fired up on a dime without even a hint of smoke - and drove perfectly, a credit to the money invested in this build.
If you are a driver, and want a drivers car, this is for you. Most of these "big" builds have little invested in the way of the chassis and drivability - I can assure you, nothing compares. A real all rounder.
Will be sad to see it go, but it's time to move on.
