    Thanks, Game on!

    Parts are easy to get for the car, problem is getting OEM parts, best place in in Denmark.

    Guadia Civil came and gave her a right bollocking for launching from a stop sign without looking (I even had my headlights on), I expect a battle to get the car repaired to it's "pre-accident condition", which was pretty darn good, 1987 E30 320i undertray anyone?

    I tried to get a agreed value of 4,500€ on renewal but companies here are decades behind other EU countries or the premiums are silly money for TPFT, even on 'classic or historic cars'.

    Over 30 years old? I see a few have had their Novas classified as 'classic/tax free' and it cost 25 quid, Here it cost 600€+ to get it on H plates, (Engineers report, inspection by expert to certify genuine, (can be a classic car club), special ITV (MoT), fee and TAX). and any back tax too. then restricted as to annual distance and speed on motorways etc. and the much lorded reduction in insurance (from special companies only, cost more than TPFT from Direct Line! (Linia Directa here who do not do historic discounts or agreed value)

    Rant over!

    Heard this morning that the Perito has written the car off. Now to some people that may seem OK, old car, cash in pocket, etc BUT, it is a 33 year old car and a classic, I just sorted the engine, new belts, pump, plugs heater hose and have a new radiator in a box, arrived this week, all for nothing. Even IF I can stop it being scrapped it has been written off and it's value as a classic car has dropped by thousands, I'll be lucky to be able to buy a secondhand fiesta and I love that car, a replacement would cost at least 4.500€ and none about at the moment, rarer that a road going SS or Nova for sale.

    That's a shame; they did that to my old merc 123 280te estate when some idiot drove into the back of it - although the car was still drivable. Having it written off devalues it, but you should still be able to get it back and have it back on the road to enjoy?

    Heard today that my insures are fighting the other company to have it repaired as I said no way am I accepting it is a write off, I would rather withdraw the claim and fix it myself, I know I can, it's not that bad. Strangely the one thing I WOULD replace not bend and mend is the center section of the chrome bumper but they say it's the only part they WOULD get repaired, new one is 157€. Still, I will find out in a day or three next week what is going on. Strange thing is it IS a 1987 (30/3/1987) but re registered as a 1993 on 1994 plates???, I will have to get that changed smartish as it comes out of the 30 year old classic status.

    Back on topic me.

    SS engine/gearbox mountings are now all done, it was a pig to get the front one in but a bottle jack and a crowbar sorted that out, just need to put it all back together now , inside as well as engine.

    Door panels are coming on, just need to get the balance of black alcantara cloth, red leatherett and dark grey carpet right. The basic shape and design is right, just not getting the 'fuzzy feeling' yet.

    I thought I had the brakes sorted but there is a leak from front right I need to sort out, so wheel off and doooo this!.
