Hi All
New member from South Lincs. Recently purchased a GTE SE6, 1977, in need of so much tlc even Freud might turn his nose up at it !

Priority is to make it road worthy and service the engine, repair leaks to power steering,cooling system and engine (should keep me busy for a while ! )

Hoping to make it a rolling restoration ? see how I go

First stop get a workshop manual, best one I've ever had for a car as it's more on the showing and less on the heavy heavy wording compared to others!
