1978 mk1 fiesta turbo project - breaking

Postby davis89 on Mon Nov 02, 2015 1:57 pm

with a heavy heart iv decided im breaking my long term project has I don't see its ever going to get finished and storage is becoming a problem.

This guts me as she aint far off finished but I don't have the knowledge and iv spent way more doh than I should of..

everything either new or refurbed as I bought it a completely bare rolling shell.

I aint dead certain on prices or how far im going to strip it yet but I need to drag as much money back as poss of this.

ill load a few pics up of the car for now and list parts iv collected off top of my head and see what interest I get.
