    Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr,I don't think you'll find mike giving ME a hand!

    All work on my tina is thought of,designed,mostly made by and fitted by

    me.I don't ship much out,and I get very little help from other people.

    I am married,3x kids,one of which has had treatment at great ormond

    street for the last 7 years,and my missus don't really work.

    Money is always tight ,but I daresay I'm in much the same boat as

    most other peeps on here!

    Sorry for the lecture, but I am just as f***ed off that my car ain't on

    the road as a lot of other people.

    Fantastic Puddy, love the interior, especially the dash

    Do you have any pics of the exhaust tunnel, is it easy to get the seat over it?

    Got all my seat brackets and seat in the right position last night, a bit

    more forwards but lower so as to get round the door bar, its tight!

    Also refitted my 3" ,5 point harness at last!

    Got the bonnet completely fitted weds night,15 dzeus's holding that down

    now and swapped the chrome trim from my old red bonnet.

    The list is getting shorter

    Just spent the last hour reading all the pages....what can you say that's not already been said. I'll have a go anyway, the car is a credit to you mate, to turn that standard of car out with all your other commitments and on a tight budget proves to us all that it can be done
