A lot of work has been done, rust repaired, rear spring were broken, brand new tyres, new radiator, AC condenser and dryer, AC compressor - blowing cold now :y , SAI ditched, multiram repaired and working corectly now, new sound deadening and insulation added, sound system remains original Bose, replaced headliner etc....

She flew trough MOT two weeks back with flying colours. And will keep her on the road until September. Then back to hybernation. Snow and salt won't do her any good.
The amount of work done is guite big, I forgot a lot of it.  She drives smooth, very quiet on motorway.
I believe I'll keep this one for a long time

A little bit of update. Omega is in for a rust repair, major one. It will take a long time but it will be worth it in the end. I was afraid some more rust will be uncovered in the process but she is not that bad as it shows.

Been there a year ago. Good luck with repairs, she's definitely worth it! Check that bulkhead area around steering column also.
