That’s got to have been way more work than just decorating surely.

Yeah the link is in the description under the photo
Been in the garden all day for 2 weeks, doing a job i was quoted over 6k to complete.
Im rescapeng the garden, fitting new fencing, building retaining wall, getting rid of old turf and lowering 100 square meters by a foot, extending patio from 8 foot to 12 foot, then relaying new turf.
Hasn't gone smoothly at all, ive found out my garden is full of rubble including huge boulders around 2 foot diameter ive filled 4 large 8 yard skips so far, but im almost ready to level it all off and lay turf and ive spent just over 2k so its all worth it that climbing wall looks cool

Wow £4000 is a large saving.

You should share some photos of the completed garden when your done
Built a custom dash for the car, a speaker and sub box for behind the rear seats, new headlining, led headlight conversion, next up is rebuilding the engine from a 1285cc to 1641cc when the gaskets get here then maybe after that a paint job. While waiting for the gaskets I will make a vintage style metal external sun visor using he metal salvaged from the side of an old fridge freezer as its the right gauge.

Cool, dual carb setup, 110 cam .... memories of my first car 25 years ago

Sticking with single carb set up 1) because have you seen the price of even used dual carb setups these days? and 2) Too much faffing getting them balanced. I'm sticking with standard cam for now too, dont need anything too powerful as its a daily driver. Performance with the stock engine is OK as it is but picked up the kit for the 1641 conversion lightly used (he has decided he is having a 2.3 race engine built for the drag strip) Barrels, pistons, rings and heads are mint, came with manifolds too which sell for £50-£60 and I only paid £90 for the lot.

I do have a zoom tube exhaust but debating whether or not to put it on as its fun but loud (sets car alarms off driving in Tesco car park).

Not bothered about keeping anything too original as its a super and not original so doesn't have the same value. Have Type R Civic seats in the front for comfort. Going sort of down the rat rod route with it (without the rust or faux rust).

Nice, from my memory 1641 barrels were the biggest bolt on barrels to a 1300 but need 1600 heads ... 1776 was next size up. Think I had twin Solex Kadrons back in the day couldn’t afford twin Webers 48IDA’s iirc were the dream
