Thanks Mal, they took some finding.

No progress other than gathering parts.

It's a cracking 9000 and will make a nice car.

I forgot to mention that one of the local welders who quoted me for the drive shaft tunnel work delivered the car back to me with a huge smile on his face. Shaun is a real petrolhead and car restorer, He said "This thing is quicker than my Cosworth! The power is exactly where you want it to be."

She was certainly no slouch when she picked up her skirts when I ran her, I should think she is even quicker now :D

I am moving the air filter into the inner wing above the wheel arch to try and pick up some cooler air. Hopefully that should have a positive effect too as long as there is sufficient circulation there. I remember the up and over snorkels fitted there on some models, so it must be viable. I think the SE had one fitted into the inner wing.

Julian, both my 900SE's have snorkel fitted in the inner wing.

Enjoying following this thread....cars looking and sounding good.

I thought so Paul, I knew I had seen one.

The Wolf is cosmetically challenged and has its issues but I really enjoy driving it.

Hopefully I will find a buyer for my V4 soon which will give me more room in the workshop to give the Wolf the attention it deserves.
I am off for the next 3 weeks and hope to get the V4 photographed and ready to sell with its mountain of spares. I am sure somebody would like to take it on somewhere. I also potentially have a full.donor car too, not that it needs anything.
I need to get my skates on :-)

Julian, I have little doubt the V4 will sell once you advertise it.

If I had the space & funds I'd be tempted.

I'm as flexible as you can get mal, the space would be nice.

I must get it advertised over the next few weeks.

The wheels have arrived from Sweden, the car looks much better with these on.

Car stolen from my house overnight.
It is very distinctive, so if you see it please let me know.

Gutted :-(

Shared on my Faceache, for what it's worth.

Gutted for you. Is there anything from the fuzz? Or is it just a crime number to them?

Really sorry to hear this Julian :(

Not many 16v 2drs out there, so it should easily be spotted if its out and about.

Let's hope so Mal, that was my keeper :-(
