Hey
not looking to spend a huge amount but can stretch to over a grand for a nice one
looks like I can only afford to insure a 1.4 at the moment
don't mind if it's a 2 door or 4 door
thanks for your help

Yeah but doing "tug and pull" in a job which requires me to do 10 3-point-turns every hour (as well as holding on to that pathetic steering wheel in corners) for 12 hours a day doesn't bode well with short arse me. I think even you'd feel the burn. PAS rulez OK.

Only thing to be aware of is a B200E pulley wont work... you'll need one from a 240 with a B21/B23 I believe as MCHUDD found out. Although I suppose you could just use one of the fan belt grooves in the pulley and run one fan belt instead of two??

That thing could be pretty rusty, the front inner wings will be going. Definitely check all inner wings under the arches, sills and jacking points! Overall look is brilliant though!
