    Evening all. Gav here, and have owned my 2.0 Laser for over 10 years...Unfortunately buying a house, work commitments, and some health issues have got in the way of my restoration in the past few years; but here I am ready to make up for lost time in the new year. This looks like a great forum and I'm sure I will learn a lot from you guys, and maybe be of benefit too if I'm lucky. :)

    Well the car was last on the road about 2 years ago.... Hoping to get it back in some shape or form for a few road trips/shows in the summer....Then onto the serious work to make it 100%.

    Unfortunately not a relation.... If I was, my inheritance would have paid for a full rebuild years ago :)

    Warm welcome from cold Norway too ;)

    Feel free to ask anything, we are a friendly bunch :cool:

    And I can relate to health issues.
    Mine got off the road in 2012, but will hopefully see the road again not far into the future.
