Happy new year chaps . You won't have known but I've been seriously unwell for the last year or so , thankfully I'm in remission. It is what it is!

I wanna build superoo2 for my daughter in 2018 without her knowing so need back on the forum either to source a car or if I can get mine back as it's well on its way or to get parts . I don't know if my wellness will last forever so gotta jump right in

One last hurrah as it were . If there are any stalled projects please pm me , rusty arches or wings no issue but as intact as possible , it'll be getting mk2d either way with an xpack .

Steve (Doc) de la Rosa

Hey Doc, good to hear you're heading in the right direction now. Hope it didn't take too much of a toll on the family. I THINK your car is still about for sale, someone was enquiring about it over on turbosport IIRC.

Looks like its about Posted Image https://www.ebay.co....vsAAOSww9xZDzFY

Good to see you here again - And that your mindset is on doing what you do, for your daughter. There's probably no better medicine than that. We already know you'll do a great job of it, so I expect you'll find plenty of help. I'm hoping to be some of it. :thumbup1:

I hope so too mate ! I just want her to see me finish the thing I started when she was 8 and to see I'm no quitter . Life lessons and all that .., this is a small thing in that goal.
