    For me, personally, I wouldn't keep it knowing some scratter had stole it and been driving in it, I'd sell it, or sell the parts, start a new project.

    However, it depends on how much you have spent on it and how much time you've devoted. Hard choice really, but at the end of the day no one can make the decision for you, it's upto you!

    in the end the choice is upto you, if the can means alot to you and you've put a lot of blood sweat and hard work into it, keep it and bring it back to the glory it deserves, my advice would be install a cat1 alarm/immobileser its worth the £400 to know you car is safe fom glue sniffing butt monkeys, that my 2pence

    Mike, welcome...

    There are many ways which you can disable your car so that thieves can't drive it away...from simple rally style ignition cut out switch hidden - to removing ht leads .!
    Sounds like you really like it ... and it goes well.

    If I was you, I'd consider a colour change after getting it fixed up....then you wont be stopped by police all the time (them thinking it's stolen)....

    Don't let them win - bollox to them !

    it good to know your not letting them get to you, just think when go get it up and running again, there's a good chance the guys who stole it will be in the slammer getting there nightly visit from big daddy
    sorry for being so crude but i hate car thieves,

    right this is the funny bit....
    actually not that funny
    the two lads (sorry creatins) that stole it are getting away with it the reason.. the police know that they were in the car the police got a report that they had dumped it and were stood next to it with there mates basically smashing it up. the police then turned up and after brief chase caught them which to me should mean caught red handed. but the cps have said because the police cant prove which one was driving they will get away with it!!!

    hmmmmmm would be a shame if one of the polce men was that fed up of them getting away with it he accicdently let there names and address
