No mate, I had a nightmare and somehow snapped the lift for reverse bit so that's currently in a bodyshop getting plastic welded. The bloke said he'd call me yesterday to let me know if it was possible, but no call. They're now closed until the new year, doh!

What's it like on its own? Yanoo said the throw would be way too long without one of his fast shifts (not stiff shift), so interested to see how it is. Mine is 3.0 stiff shift, and I've just ordered Yanoo brass bushes too.

Well managed to getba couple of hours this morning on the car. Safe to say its one unloved b**ch

From quick view

Drive shafts drives side the centre is split
Track rods rubbers all split
Dog bone is not great

Thats from a quick look i gave up looking for issues and removed the rad and air con rad as ive made the choice of pulling the engine out for paint and what not. The mrs n kids walked back from the park so my plan is start from the rear and work forward. Pulled the back box off the bolts grom centre to cat need cutting as there rotten cleaned the arches and fitted the rear b14s with purple powerflex bushes

With it being -67°c outside i wasnt messing with the car tonight so i thought ill get the new knob on the scenic shifter ive bought.

All went well until it snapped :-(. Gotta find a bodge that works thinking cable ties in a x to pull it back together until i find another at a fair price.
