I'm going to sound really old, but I don't care...... it's refreshing to see a young man write and pay attention to grammar.

Project is fantastic and it sounds like you know and are learning loads.

Keep us posted!!

And I'm going to sound really old but never get under a car when it's only on a jack. I know of two people on the e-type list who were both killed under a car supported by only a jack. Use axle stands!!!

Keep up the good work though.

There are ramps under the rear wheels, you can see one on the left there Paul.

I am sure with Matt's guidance there was no way Jake was going to do anything unsafe.

Brilliant work, I wish I had started doing this sort of thing with my dad when I was your age rather than leaving it until my 30's.  You also have the benefit of Yoda being at your side (so does that make you Luke Skywalker?)

Keep up the good work!

Super jealous - wish I could have done this when I was your age - I almost bought an S2 JPS at uni (when I was 18) for 3 grand - I could have just afforded it with my student loan! Good luck!

Its so refreshing to see a young man like you doing something that your going to be so proud of, rather than playing Xbox and feeling proud of yourself for reaching level 2 on Fifa!!! Really looking forward to seeing the progress, good luck.

Jake you are a little legend well done. Embarrassed to say that at thirteen you are light years ahead of what I can achieve fixing a car

As a fellow S2 owner also doing a body-off restoration, I'm very much looking forward to following your progress!

What is that white Esprit there? Also an S2?
