A big thank you to my uncle who helped me get the engine in and some other bits, really could not have done it without him! (he came up with a brilliant idea to put the engine in without moving the car... outstanding!.
Two teaser pics for you to ogle over, more will be up later, right now I need to sit in a comfy chair, and eat some food. Some info to :-P. The overall job of putting the engine in, connecting the transmission up, lifting it, moving it into position, lowering it in and bolting it took roughly 1.5 hours. prep took about 1, and final things that I started but haven't finished (steering column, wiring) took about another 2, mainly because I was dawdling and not moving very fast :-D.
