I then took the Engine & Gearbox out of the Manx to get the Country Buggy registered

Which meant the Manx has been sitting for 18 months doing nothing, so with the Sporting Wheelies Charity run coming up, it's time for some upgrades and get the Manx back on the road.

This is where we're at right now

Don't hold your breath, I'm still accumulating parts, but I have the engine, wiring loom has been done, and I have a RJES bellhousing.

I'm also in the middle of a Turbo Diesel conversion in my Offroad Kombi Dual Cab
