for that kind of money, you'd think they'd be able to clean up the engine bay a bit?

I think cars look better if they are left in as found condition, it's more honest so a potential purchaser can see precisely what they are buying.

Is the Sprint fhc the car that Ken Meyers bought from the factory as a kit and then stored for a few years before building it?

really sorry to everybody that expressed interest but have changed my mind and have asked Neil to restore both cars which was my original plan.

Great colour on the Rindt car Derek - thanks for helping me with that, mine is nearly finished too.

Just out of interest, I nearly had that JPS Plus 2 before you got it. Seller was 'challenging', to say the least !
