My second mk 1. Hopefully with a turbo fitted to the original engine, but I am unsure how I will sort the fueling out can anybody throw some light on this for me?

Do you mean getting the fuelling set up or getting the fuel to the engine from the tank mate.
Either way it looks like you have a long road ahead of you Smile

Not fuel related, but make sure you get those outriggers off to see what's behind.

How's the bulkhead, looks like some work might be required there!

Hi
Yeah the bulk head is not in the best condition but I really did not expect it to be. I have some fabrication to do it that department like I said this is my second Astra but my first time on the owners club. I do have a long way to go but I like to plan ahead hence why I wanted to know what I was going to do with the engine it was the fueling rather than getting it to the engine. Since then I have decided I am going to leave it standard Very Happy

I still have my old bulkhead (I transplanted one from another car). It's knackered either side where it touches the chassis rail but the bit under the holes for the heater matrix is fine...
