I think I may have to admit defeat

I think I may have to admit defeat

Postby Rich_p » Tue Apr 12, 2016 11:50 am

I've not posted in a while as I've been occupied with the Elise.

After another year of not touching the 309 (but sometimes buying bits) I may need to admit that it's never going to get finished :-(

I've got a nice pile of bits and a sorn'd car with nice bits attached.

I'm assuming I'm better off undoing my work and breaking the car as opposed to bunging it on ebay as is?

Such a shame. Also not looking forward to stripping it at all but i'll need to.

I'm not even sure I can manage to get the engine and gearbox out but I'll need to retrieve the BBM mounts etc

Depends on how much you want for it as is

Pics and more description would help

You've had it a long time, I would complete it if possible. They are few and far between these days and becoming rarer to find decent cars. If space is an issue consider selling as a package with spares via pug forums, classic car sites, northloop or rally sites. It would make a good road rally project, last resort ebay. Breaking requires time and space and usually waiting for no shows.

Always liked yours, and its a Coventy reg. Finish it if you can.

I would keep it and put it aside until you find the love for it again. I sold my project a few years ago as it needed money and time spent on it that I didn't have. Now I regret it and wish I'd have just left it there. I followed your thread and couldn't wait to see it built, you did all the hard work already. It probably wouldn't take much to get it going.
