Thanks Dave. I can see now that it's been posted on here previously;

Well it's back on the road now and based in Essex. Currently at Essex Rotary having a full service. Looked pretty clean and tidy overall.

I looked at this car earlier in the year... it was a right rough thing... he said he wanted 11 hundred quid for it.... once I’d managed to stop laughing I walked away

What happened to your car at LC rotary?
Went up in Flames. They had someone drive in and dump a van then set it on fire next to where my car was parked.
Christ how awful. was it covered by their business insurance?

Yes, but they would only pay out £3k - and everything around that's any good has been £5k+ for a while now (or has been bought before he could get it) so here we are... I have B464 PPR now.

My fully rebuilt 12a bridgeport will go in to it (The front of the car survived the fire...) but I'm worried about the body after reading about it on here. Going to see it tomorrow morning.
