Yep, still smells pretty doggy in there.

Me and my housemate went and pulled the engine today. He has spent a lot of the week evenings pulling stuff off the engine to make it possible.

Note the bonnet on the roof. Only way to get the access we need.

Gearbox and Exhaust are completely removed whilst we work out how we are going to refit the engine with a fairly limited access.

New engine is sourced and being pulled from another crashed car and being delivered in the next few weeks. As we arent in any rush and got a good price, so aiming for a running car again by November.
