I transferred all mine from PB to Imgur, took ages to sort out, not happy with PB at all.

Thanks. Lee.

hahaha... haha... ha...

I'm in the painful process of relinking and rehosting all the images in a build diary that started in February 2012 and has been updated continuously since. There won't be enough time for me to sort out all the build diaries I've got and the rarer stuff, like the Renault 6 build diary, is going to have to just go extinct and rob a lot of people of a lot of useful reference material.

I've got a good couple of years of Rover build diary to rehost and relink too. All because PBucket got greedy and my £2 a month (which I was quite happy paying) wasn't enough.

In years to come people will look back at the picture blackout and wonder what happened and those of us that were here will say, with gritted teeth, "ah, the Photobucket Phuckup of 2017".

So after such a long time dodging illness, surgery, more illness, physical and mental trauma we have an update :clapping

Unfortunately as my help decided to stay in bed and impending storm clouds it was a case of crack o rather than take pictures, so for that i'm sorry.

So today, i finished installing all the abs sensors.
Installed all the "Samco" coolant pipes
Finally fitted the engine loom
Fitted some bling
fitted dizzy cap and ht leads.
Fitted fans
Fitted headlights
fitted indicators
fitted hockey sticks
fitted grille
fitted the power steering pipes from the rack to the engine pipes ready for finishing off tomorrow.

but enough waffle, Pictures !!!

Starting to see the end picture now.

tomorrow, pending weather

finish power steering
remove rear bumper and fit newly powdercoated rear crash bar
fit stainless exhaust back box, centre and cat
fit gear linkage
Fit front and rear anti roll bars.

hopefully :unsure

If all goes well, spacers will be fitted as will the wheels and on the floor it goes.
Gratuitous stance pics to follow, hopefully.
