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!

If things are going well with the rebuild you've missed a part out
