    Excellent plan - break everything down into bite-sized chunks and tackle them one at a time. Don't forget to let us know how you get on!

    Two things I am also planning are a vinyl wrap and removing the windscreen. I'm hoping the screen won't be too difficult as it is already very loose in a lot of places but I am still worried about breaking it.

    With regard to vinyl wrapping - I've done a few of these (here's my Capri wrap -

    You'll need to think this through very carefully as there isn't a natural break in the main body tub - and it's too wide to wrap with a single film which means a joint somewhere is going to be unavoidable. My plan is to put a go faster stripe down the middle to hide the join. Currently I'm thinking pale blue for the main colour and orange for the stripe as per Gulf Porsche.

    Use a proper wrapping film (expensive material but makes the job a lot easier) and practice a bit on smaller items first before attempting the main tub or roof section. It's not easy to do I warn you.

    So far done my bonnet and the boot lid is next then mirrors, I would love to wrap the rest in black pearl but my pension isn't going to run to that.

    I sold a set of grubby turbovecs about 10 years ago for £50 and so regret it now. I've been looking for a set for about 3 years and not found any, so perhaps they may go on your other list and keep hold of your other wheels until you get a replacement set.

    Here is a link to a cheap reverse camera. You can also find cheap units on eBay to run the camera

    I have several cameras, four on the SS and one on the Merc ' and Corsa with radio/ DVD units too and there is a huge difference between them, cheap ones give a greyish poor res' picture when you need a clear sharp one with 24hr use. Combo mirror monitors are good when pushed for space but of course in the Nova you have to take roof movement into account so a dash mounted screen is easier, 7" is a good size, 4" or 5" and you need it 'in ya face'. And a Nova dash is a fair way away from 'ya face'.

    Update..... NOTHING AT ALL UNFORTUNATELY !! But the nice PPI man has a cheque heading my way as we speak . I have set aside a portion of it to get the Nova roadworthy. Changed my mind on an mot date when i have had a few quotes per hour from a few local guys and holy s#it are all mechanic's millionaires ? So a rethink is now called for......
