            Road trip over to Adelaide. To allow parts to be interchanged better between donor and twinky over the Christmas break.

            Lowered suspension, bonnet, doors. Finish off interior. At least. Also do some cleaning engine bay, exterior. See how she scrubs up

            Unfortunately I have discovered unfortunately that the series 2 / 3 have differing front quarter panels...
            So, while they should bolt on, the donor quarters, lights and grille would convert my series 1 '86 into a series 3 '88 front end...
            Not certain that's the right thing to do.

            Also, hoping to get some local mates with vast twinky experience to have a looksie at her...

            I was going to drive it over for epic fun-ness.. But decided I'd rather not risk something going wrong. Also, could only drive on permid during daylight hours, and that didn't quite fit into my plans for the weekend.. Oh well.. Will grab a permit one day over christmas for a fun hills run... :D

                Plan for Christmas break will be swap lowered suspension over, finish the interior off, bonnet swap, doors, grille, hatch and bumper. Then give her a cleanup and see how she looks. Also, seem to have got a puncture in the back right on the test track. So that'll need fixing (have the spare on at the moment).

                  I used to have one of these. The engine blew up and I sold it to Rowdy.

                  Word to the wise.. don't use "Twink" or "Twinky" when searching for stuff on the internet. Big port twink means different things in different circles...

                    Spent today shopping and wrapping presents. But managed to swap the bonnet over, fit the correct grille and also for the interior side trims and rubbers.

                            Not stockies, whatever 90s five spokes lobster had on it - BSA I think is the brand.

                            Miss that car, was great with the 20 valve in it and only just slower at Wakefield than the mx5.
