I started a rapid reassembly to get the car ready to follow the Killarney Deja Vu Group B Tribute event. Episode 15 was refitting the engine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjM2ICQ ... 8&index=16
and episode 16 was Fuel Tank and Front Valence tidy up

Time-lapse of the whole project back to the road. I'm looking forward to painting the topside in the New Year

Yes, that! But it must be quite easy as it only took you 7 minutes, 59 seconds to restore the car, get it tested and remain cheerful throughout!
Great vid as ever.

Great videos SpaceKadet, and nice to see another Irishman here! I'd be no good at video blogging. Watching you work made me realise that I tend to swear my way through most jobs!
