Most importantly get Ravs car fixed up and back on the road and back to Rav. Anyone want to come weld some patches on the sills?
Depending on how repairs go with mine I might be able to help out with this a bit later on. Maybe you could help me out with some mechanical bits on mine with the assistance of your lift in return ;)

I have pretty low ambition in regards to the coupe. I just want to keep her road legal and not let the rust take hold any more. She will need a pair of rear and front wings eventually but the longer i can nurse her the better.

Think this year is pretty simple!

Rebuild the Noble after my Dad ripped all the teeth of the diff.
Fix and sell the Tiger to pay for the bodywork on the Coupe.

Fill the rest of the time helping to complete other peoples lists!
Half a Turbo Track Toy
All of another Turbo
And some other Boosted toys.

Really want to get mine back on the road again, a restoration has been attempted a few times now, and I'm to the point where I need to do it or move it on to someone who will.

Ohh, and the kick up the butt realisation that POL is in 3 and a bit months time, of which I have always wanted to go.

So its the best motivation ive had so far to get the car sorted, but, theres a lot to do... :oops: basically;

Repaint whole car, fit windscreen,
finish refurbing engine fit to refurbed gearbox,
finish design of wildwood 6 pot big brake upgrade
Fit coilovers, big fmic, and loads of other bits and bobs that's stashed in the garage!

Sounds easy when its condensed to 4 items! :roll:

Hopefully meet some of you at POL! hopefully get some photos up of progress soon... if I could host them! :x (thanks photobucket!)

Cheers

My plans are:

- Help out with the club a bit more.
- Finish the worst affected rear quarter panel repair.
- Dynax in the sills
- Fit decent set of cloth seats for now until I can get leather ones restored
- Get the coupe MOT'ed and back on the road again.
- Spray and fit the new rear spoiler
- General tidying up and maintenance
- Possibly get the underbody and inner arches treated
- Attend more events than last year (shouldn't be too hard!).

Even with the jobs listed above for the coupe, it still wont be in tip top shape but will provide a good basis for continued 'rolling restoration'. I'm lucky in that the paint is still in pretty good condition so hopefully will respond well to a polish and then not look too shabby for shows even if she's not perfect. That's assuming I don't cock up painting the repaired sections if I'm feeling brave enough to do it myself!
