Decided, going to sell it as it is.
So anyone want to a project?
Make me an offer while I remove the plate.

I'd love it to be fixed by someone here.


Sounds like we all need to club together and buy it for DeMort?

It a shame it hasn’t worked out AU..
Do you really think you’d actually lose money getting the work done, ie car worth less than rebuild, roof, suspension?
Heartbreaking if so.

I read in a magazine not that long ago that Porsche had dropped the price of replacement engines to £3.5 k. Would that not be an option?

The magazine retracted that statement as Porsche did not make it... Ergo not an option. Other independants are available however.

Right. I'm decisive. I make a plan then stick to it.

errrr


Plan A was to sell it as it is, buy a later Gen II or a Hartech car. Even paid DVLA to take the rumplier plate off
Kept looking at the 996 C4s cab at RPM.
Sorry for not replying to a few pm's.

Plan B would have been great, but isn't going to happen.

Now plan C - Hartech picking motor up next week. They'll strip and inspect and then we'll see where we end up.

Lots of helpful thoughts posted. Man maths means I could argue to scrap or to repair.

cheers all
