Read about this extensive renovation carried out on a shoestring of a budget!

Background
Regular forum users will be aware of this car as Nick updated us every few weeks with pictures and information. What is amazing is not only the shear dedication to complete the project but the misery costs involved! It just goes to show what you can get if you shop around 🙂

The Story
We saw the Fig on Ebay advertised for spares. The owner had been told by the local garage that the pistons had gone and it needed a new engine. As it was fairly local we went to see it –it didn’t look good but I wasn’t convinced it was the engine that needed replacing but I had an idea what it was and we didn’t want to see it scrapped so we came to an agreement after I told her it definitely wouldn’t be scrapped.
Money changed hands the next day and we towed it home – that’s when the hard worked started.
