Got the 55 from California in April, but needed sorting to make safe and reliable. My mate Chris Eames has worked his magic on it and it should be ready to pick up this week. Happy days.:D

No, sorry, I've got a couple of weeks fabrication on a MG Midget classic trails car, then hopefully back on the Metro!!

Looking good Steve/Chris. Obviously some of these imports need rather a lot of fettling then.

Yep, a lot of work has gone into steering, suspension, brakes and a bit of titivating.
It's no show truck, but should be a nice daily driver. :D

I'm going to tell Babs you'd be better off with the Astra and selling the 55 to me.....;)

That's real nice Steve. What a difference a change of wheel colour & stance make (& all other stuff you cant see.)

Better than a boring euro fart box daily.

Cheers Steve, it's not as clean and shiny as it looks in the photo but as long as we can get it reliable enough to use as a daily should be good fun.
