Until I upload more photos online this is all I've got so far.
That was her pulled from her spot and waiting to be towed up the road and round the corner to her new home.

I'm looking forward to actually making it to a meet with all you lot. Seeing an AX for me is a rare sight, just don't see them anymore. Since talking to you all it would seem not many Mk1 white Gt's about either?
Yeah she needs a good clean and she's had one since these pictures, needs a good Polish though. Will get more pics up when done. First job is to get her running, no spark :-(

Still no spark??? Apart from either poor wiring or a coil. Which 9/10 it isn't that's the only thing left to check. I had 3 leads out of 4 once so furred up on the plug ends it wouldn't fire. I guess you should take the dizzy cap off and just check it's not full of water

More pictures after a quick clean, needs a good Polish and rust sorting out on the eye brows of the bonnet and a patch is starting to appear under the front drivers arch. Nothing to serious.

If only Lee, she now has no brakes, nothing at all, pedal straight to the floor :-(
Just brought 4 new tyres as the ones fitted are cracked so bad they look like they'll split open at any minute!!
The drivers seat is not locking in to position, keeps sliding along the runners. I also need to replace the headlights and fog lights, rear lights are passable but not in A1 condition.
Hope to have it all sorted by end of next month :-)

Good man. The brakes should be easy to sort. I think rebuilt calipers are only around 30/40 each. The rear cylinders around 10 and shoes 20. You may as well do the whole system if it's been sitting that long
