Looks as though the surprise was the gearbox falling out when you got it on the drive? :lol:

Was it paid for from your slush fund? :wink:

Seriously, it looks good, very nice colour, well done! :D

Is that the one that apparently had an engine issue or am I confusing it with another?

Hmm jealousy striking here :roll: , think it was the one with engine issues Phil though no doubt Josh is well placed to resolve them having rebuilt one S6 already


SE4c rebuilding. SE5a similar it seems!
