Evening All, I'm finding the above suprisingly hard to find the above.

I'm in the process of recommissioning my 1500 which has been sitting for a couple of years since it started running poorly.

It's too good a car to not get back on the road where it should be. The previous owner had fitted a side exit cherry bomb exhaust which seems to be giving me performance (and noise!) issues so looking to get a new standard system to replace this with.

The exhaust manifold also has some large cracks in it so looking to replace this too.

There's plenty to do on this project so I'm trying to be as economic as possible if anyone has or knows of a reasonable used parts availabale until the budget can stretch to stainless.

Still on the list is body work and paint - any recomendations on this also very welcome - as affordable as possible please!

Lastly if anyone knows of a good garage to take a look at the uneven running - I'm changing everything my limited mechanical know how will aloow right now but it would be worth while for someone with expirience to take a look/ get the engine set up propoerly so I don't do any more damage and get her back where she should be.

In Iver, Buckinghamshire - West Lonndon.

Any help at all would be enormously appreciated!

Thanks in advance
