Looking forward to hearing about it and seeing some pictures, especially if it's the vehicle I think it might be, that I saw on ebay - so, I'm not the only one crazy enough to have bought a Stage 1 sight unseen?! :)

Crazy! that's me. It was the yellow one on ebay. Chassiss goosed I would say. Have'nt had a proper good dig though. I was ready for that to be honest. I may treat myself to a new galvy chassis. Bulkheads remarkably good. Runs nicely on all 8. Broke the gearstick of at the ball as soon as I got it of the trailer. I thought that only happened on Serie 3s. Just welded that up refit tomorrow. test the box then. I've told the missus its an appreciating classis so needs money throwing at it :roll:
Piccys later.
