This year is definitely the plan.
It's not that far off really. Couple of weekends on the ramp hopefully.
I'm also gonna change one of the strut tops too (did n/s about 5 years ago due to corrosion and now the rubber on the o/s has started to crack).

Just got 2 preludes to rebuild first so I have space to get it over there :lol:

Well, I'd like your Activa Jim but I was thinking of Ians Turbo CXs. In particular the Turbo 2. Sexy car with an engine to boot.

I'd love a black Turbo 2 but I cannot see it happening in the near future.


(I know of one (Turbo 2 and Black) ) dusted and abandoned CX in a garage here in town. Its a public garage and someone climbed on top of the car, stood on the roof and pee'd all over it .. It's very evident from the footprints and pee stains :( I might have a picture of the travesty somewhere)

Take a look for CGATs' CX. It is somewhat spectacular.

Sounds like a good one to rescue Hans, after a good hosing down that is...
