Once there onTom they stay on.
Otherwise someone may come and "borrow" them whilst your not looking.  s;) ;) s;)
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Right lets bring this mother trucker up to date! Will brief goings on then hopefully add more tonight and pictures.
SO what has been going on. Last may i took of a offer from a good friend and well known member of the community. I bought Nathan's Red JDL body kitted car, this car was fitted with a 06 engine with a thor racing turbo kit attached.
I set about my plans and brain storming and decided that the best solution for me was to fit the 06 turbo'd engine into blue.
The reasons behind this were:
As you will all be aware i like to track my 2, tracking a JDL body kitted masterpiece just doesn't work! i was not willing to take the risk on damaging it. So then came plans to do the swap which including swapping engine and turbo into blue and then fitting blue's engine into Red.
Richard (rbuckingham) then stepped forward to say that he would be willing to help with the swap. (Top Man)
In the meantime in June i picked up a sable, the justification behind that was that when we did the swap in august i wouldn't have be able to insure the turbo'd 2 until renewal of insurance at the end of November, so i needed a run about, drove a celica 1zz couldn't get out of it quick enough.
Anyway back onto blue. SO red was trailered down the country 305 miles. Engine removed then 2 weeks later or so i drove down in blue.
After very little sleep we set about the swap. got blues engine out got reds in. We started reconstruction around the car with Rich's 2 mates also helping. Some things went straight forward, however some did not  s:( :( s:(  We set about with the idea of completing the car in a weekend, but the first big hiccup was the sub frame as blues turned out to be swish cheese we went to swap reds in and all didnt go straight forward. then we had issues with the rear track arms being tired. At this point we accepted it wasn't going to be finished that weekend so, luckily i travelled down in convoy to Rich's I rang my mate who drove another 45mins out of his way to pick me up.
Couple of weeks later Rich said come back down, got the train down on Saturday to pick the car up, at which point we found more demons. Unfortunately the boomslang wiring harness was a complete mess it had been cut and shut more times than Jordan, the engine just wouldn't fire on the link. I tootled off back up north sent Rich the bits he then pain painstakingly rebuilt the boom slang he did a top job on it now looks alot better! Unfortunately the engine still wont fire on the link. at this point we called it a day, since then it was a case of getting the car home so that i could get a auto electrician onto it failing that it couldn't be sorted with link (ECU BRAND).
So 6 months later me and Mr SLoan drove down to Rich's to pick the red car and the blue car up, with blue hitched up. At this point another bloody issue blue's clifford alarm now isnt playing ball and the immobilser cannot be disabled sigh haha.
Got them both home now. dealt with a few issues on red tidied her up and she has now moved onto her new owner.
SO now ive to set about fettling the alarm on blue then its a case of attempting to deal with the link/wiring. Once that sorted ive refurbished a sub frame for that to go in, ive got a hand brake cable to fit, speaker, trd short shift. Then it will be off to the MOT'er.
But the further spanner in the work is that i may have got a little bit attached to the sable its one of the best mr2's ive owned if not the best. This weekend i fitted the home brew induction kit and fitted the sp12's.

I will document all this with as many pictures as possible this evening adding them to the first post.

I would like to say a massive thank you to the work and effort that Rich and his to pals put into the car it really is appreciated! Top man!

Oh and thanks Josh for turning up and helping!!!  s:) :) s:)  
Nothing really special about it, its just a spot on little car that has been looked after. Missed having a FL a think. The temptation is strong!
Toying with a few ideas:
Option 1: Get blue going sell sable.
Option 2: Get blue going and use as a track car keep sable.
Option 3: Get blue going Sell sable buy Is200 run blue as summer and lexus as winter.

Think I was more a hindrance than a help. But I managed to sit on my arse and pretend to push things with my leg   s:lol: :lol: s:lol:  

I think keep blue and just pour your heart, soul and wallet into it. Sod messing about with two cars and they extra expense that comes with running two.
