Miib14 that's a great build thread and if I'm ever over your way I'd take you up on the offer of a ride cheers.
Being old and lazy these days I had been wondering if there was an even easier route to solving the engine mounting problem. Yours sounds simple enough but i had been wondering whether a 2.0D crossmember and mounts would work as i belive it uses an S-series gearbox. What are your thoughts? Did you try that already?
