Where to start! here's my build thread for my frankenstien scooby!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Iv owned the wagon now for 3 years after buying it really cheap....Iv'e always wanted one since getting rid of my old vauxhall calibra a few years ago.. It has been sat in my garage under dust sheets having never turned a wheel in all that time due to it being a non starter and being really busy with work. I finally decided to uncover it and crack on. Finally got it running after finding the timing had jumped due to a failed tensioner!! Its an early import and also ran an auto gearbox Sad After getting it up and running i found out the auto box was also knackered!!!... So back under the dust sheet she went. Finally bit the bullet and decided to convert it to run a manual box after being offered a manual box and diff together with all the extra bits and pieces from a mates crash damaged scooby...cheap. Very Happy

This is how it stood for a while tucked in the corner.Decided to facelift the front end just to give it a fresher lool so sourced the parts as well as a few other bits and bobs while i sorted the wiring for the manual converison!

Haha...thanks for the good luck messages....I,ve been disheartened with it a few times....took a chance with it when i bought it 3 years ago as a non runner....when i finally got it running i fell in love with the noise the flat four gives....it owes me very little in money at the minute but a lot in hours spent...i could never sell it even though i haven,t drove it yet..
