after many a month trying to find a gearbox and a place to fit it within my budget of £300, i finaly gave up trying to find one on ebay and a scrappy (because during the search i saved another 300quid lol) i bit the bullet and paid for a reconditiond box and whilst i was at it had the clutch replaced (it needed it aswell)
£600 inc VAT for a Recon box with 6months warenty, clutch (proper GM one) gearbox oil and labour. they even travled 40mins to collect my car for free
took my car away Saturday morning, collected my car 3pm today.
i can finaly carry on what ive got planned for the car, well once my bank balance has recovered lol.
to follow in a few days time, a update of all the work ive been doing on it over the past 6months
