Oh fook! £565.55 going on the credit card :cry:

But it looks like I have a gearbox :lol: :D :D :lol:

Not had much time for anything roadster wise, 360 plug plants came yesterday from Jersey Plants, so been busy planting up 21 pots/troughs/planters over the weekend, just got 18 baskets to go when the trailing plants arrive.

Noooo :cry: But then on reflection I cant complain really, from the proceeds of breaking the 730 I bought last year I ended up with a V8, decent TIG & Mig plus quite a few other bits and all costs covered :D Plus I was lucky on the runnning gear and had a good deal on that too.

Those BMW manual V8 boxes are a little on the rare side and do fetch good money.

No Bob, going to need to source flywheel, clutch, slave cylinder and shift linkages but at least with the box I can start to figure out how to fit it in.

Spent a good couple of hours levelling up the table, can now slide a straight all around it at different angles and all reading spot on and flat :D :D :D was interesting to see how true the mule was and reinforced my decision to steer away from a timber framed table, the offside has a slight upwards bow in it and the nearside has a similar bow but more significant.

Got the box mated up to the engine and got it sat in the mule, still got a bit of chopping about to do to get it to sit nicely but ran out of time.
