Finally managed to get myself a 182 after years of wanting one. Never thought i'd be lucky enough to get a Trophy.

Found it on a salvage site that my dad was using for work and pursuaded him to get it.

Its no. 400/500 and needs a bit of work lol.

When i first got it home

Yes good luck with the resto though I'm slightly worried how you are going in get that door into a space that is no longer door shaped.

Im not sure i understand this post. Wasn't this posted up before about 2 months ago? I thought this would be an update kind of post to say how things are going???

Anyway, good luck with it. Be good to hear how you are getting one. Hopefully be all sorted ready for some better Springtime weather and nice drives.

I only put the first two pictures up in the Newbies section before, so thought i'd start a proper progress thread. Although the only progress I've made is moving it off the trailer lol. Thought it was going to go to the bodyshop this week

Then started her up to take her to the bodyshop, and realised that there was no oil. So when I put the oil in...
