  1. So nice to see the "Toledo Sprint" in good hands. 🤩 Memories flowing back. Have fun and great work with all your cars!
  2. If you want 126, I suggest you find yourself another one that is not BIS. Especially if you're looking at swapping engines. Much easier to work on and (I presume) parts availability is considerably better. 126 BIS were always considered a bit of a Frankenstein back in the days in Poland. Not particularly successful example of trying to improve space and performance of a car so that it fits export markets better.
  3. Brilliant work Zelandeth and good luck with taking it on. I am really glad that beige rough diamond project is still going on AS. It is the epitome of what this forum was all about few years back. I did fall in love with it at first sight...
  4. I'm sure I have mentioned to you that MrsOrange's job involves testicle removals from living things. She knows how to do it with and without anesthesia. I'd like to keep mine for now. Other than that, wouldn't get through garage doors and availability of cadillac chod round here is extremely good. 😁
  5. Obviously trying to jinx 😉 I am glad I continued as I'm happy with result
  6. Unfortunately not for long, it has emigrated with me so I will have to deregister it with DVLA.
  7. Thank you Eddy. I hope you're keeping well. The book from you is still in the car.
  8. Probably last update as I hardly ever log in here nowadays. But because this originated here, I felt the need to share some more. The Fiat is finally back at home with me. It is now pretty and runs great. Turns stops and all that shit. It also makes me happy whenever I look at it and that's what's most important, innit. It is a one of a kind car for me that currently I can't see myself parting with. That will probably change when the seasons change and I see something shiny somewhere. Here's the car everyone.
  9. Good morning. Thought I might pop in and write something. F133 is currently in car spa in Poland getting some attention. Unfortunately after closer inspection of the work done in UK by a regarded restorer, I lost any trust in people doing their job right without looking at their hands at every possible opportunity. Quite frankly I was stupid thinking that it can be done properly without me being there. I am not even going to start listing things that were fucked up, said to be done and plainly made worse. Fuck you Classic Vehicle Restorations Ltd. by Jeff Ball Here is my beauty in current state. You can also hear it roar a bit in a video here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CEwqINxh7lh
  10. They are not expensive and obviously I will be covering all costs. Problem is paying for goods on that website. I need someone in Argentina that will buy the emblem and send to me. I'm happy to send money upfront via PayPal or bank transfer.
  11. Does any Autoshiter have family, friends or any other contacts or acquaintances in Argentina??? The only thing I'm missing for the project F133 is the rear emblem, only available in Argentina... https://listado.mercadolibre.com.ar/insignia-fiat-133
  12. Jeff Ball. He is apparently a well known old MG restorer/ fixer.
