Rob from the Midlands who is a welder fabricator according to the video. Nice car, and I follow the same channel, probably because Sheldon is as mad as a box of frogs and Lucas cracks me up!

Yeah, their banter is quite entertaining. I thought that Rob would be known to the Club. Sheldon's just upoaded a glut of videos. I'm uploading a couple of videos a week which is BMW & Celica content at the moment.

Just a footnote, this car will almost certainly have been sold new by Uxbridge Service Station where I did my apprenticeship on Austin and Triumph, though I don't remember it. I CAN clearly remember doing PDIs on DVB 545J and DVB 546J which were both 2.5PIs and helping rebuild the (cable change) gearbox under warranty (more than once) on an apple green Austin Maxi DVB 539J which was also sold by USS.
