    Thatís a pity Dan. When you get it back try removing the plugs and squirting some releasing oil into the cylinders. Leave it for a while and then gently try to turn the crankshaft pulley wheel with a spanner. You never know ...
    Hope you get it sold or sorted

    That is the first thing that will happen. Itís had water ingress before and Iíve managed to save it, so we will see.
    Once the engine is done chances are it may accidentally roll in to my spray booth for a killer paint job, if it comes back to me it stays

    Come on then, letís make this a little more positive.
    If Iím keeping it Iíll need to paint it. The body needs some work anyway and Iíve been wanting to paint it for a while.

    What colour do you think would look good on it? Give me some options, I work with paint every day and often think ďthat would look greatĒ, but other opinions are always good!

    Iíll start it off, Audi Mica Racing Blue, possibly with a little metal flake added in for fun.

    In my phone so cannot see the attachment, however the chosen colour will have to pop against the chrome of the engine.
    Maybe the opposite of white being black, however the curves of the car would be hidden with a dark colour.
    Light, bright and very in your face 😂

    For me it would depend on the finish of the bodywork. If the finish is flawless then you will be fine with dark colours, however, if the finish is blemished I would stick with lighter colours that are more forgiving

    It will be flawless, if I’m going to do it I’ll do it properly. It can sit in my bodyshop for as long as it takes and I have employees that I can put on it when quiet too

    Whatever you choose I reckon it needs to be outrageous ... what about chameleon colour shifting paint like this ...

    ... or maybe in bright gold mixed with a deep red perhaps?

    BTW if your staff are ever at a loose end, send them up here to work on my Nova. I've not worked on it since the end of July

    That would look good, itís got to be crazy whatever I go for. A normal colour isnít going to work on this car.
    I think Iíll have to hunt for the time to get them working on this, but where thereís a will thereís a way.
