'83 Turbo - recommendations for recommissioning/C Service

Recommended Posts

Looking to put my '83 Turbo back on the road next year...

Unfortunately, after spending a lot of money on her 2005/6/7 I drove her for a couple of years (<1k miles) - but she's been laid up in my garage for nearly 9 years.

She needs a C Service (I'm not brave/competent enough to even attempt a cam belt change) and general going over/reconditioning.

Have used Steve at SJ Sportscars in the past - but a fair trek to get the car transported - anyone recommend anywhere?

Someone I know suggested Esprit Engineering in Downton, Wiltshire - anyone else used them/recommend?

Other recommendations?

We're out near Chipping Norton in West Oxfordshire...

Iain, to make your life easier, contact @Sparky and he'll be able to help, he's a wizard with the Esprit and about 90% of our members use him :)

Cheers Bibs - that's another recommendation for @sparky then!  :)

Need to get some funds put aside - hopefully looking at March(ish) next year - she *really* needs to be back on the road!

And promise to post on the forums more often - been sidetracked with 'life' last few years...
