    UPDATE, I found my old car and is with a very good owner and had alot of work done to keep her on the road, so I am happy to say I have acquired another supertouring #66 2lt one, so I will be about more again.

    I am mainly active on the facebook supertouring owners page, but will pop in here as much as I can.

    thanks for reading all.

    unfortunately no pics yet, I have been attacking it as its is bad shape, and recently the handbrake snapped and rear wheels locked, so I have had to strip down the calipers and all the kerfuffle that causes, I have some older pics when it was pre-me


    the car used to have all the btcc rally stickers on, I plan to put them back on :)

    I'll know this motor used to belong to few members up my way few year ago. Was one of those that removed the vinyl and had the motor painted.

    yeah, been round the block this one, I am keeper # 22 :)

    was "moror" a typo? the motor was resprayed? what does that mean? I was told the engine is not original as it blew up a while ago, car done 141k, engine replaced at around 90k.

    the car was not resprayed when vinal was taken off, there are still yellow bits around the car from where the vinal was not taken off properly, and the bumper has been screwed back on, as I can see screw heads sticking out the side, a poor job.

    I am having to strip it right back and get it fixed and sprayed back up again next week.

    do stickers class as a modification for insurance purposes?

    I would say yes, anything not fitted from factory is modification in the eyes of the insurance companys.
