right so i have this list of things that i need to fix on the ef, today sp33 and I went to the wreckers in hope to get a decent condition engine mount and some trim for the windows, we kinda left it abit late so after goin to a well known wrecking yard and being abit blown away with how much they wanted for some plastic and some prefacelift tails we headed to a more resonably priced wreckers and picked up the window trim rubber and removed the engine mount (well tranny mount i suppose) to find it was F_ _ _ ed and put in the window trim, just a little win for the day, tomorrow plan to put in the new mount, degrease the engine bay, reseal the tappet cover, put a new air filter, service the car with new oil, filter, plugs and leads, but yeh see how we go for time

included some pics



mount in all its broken glory





big thanks to sp33 for his time and patience and knowlege with everything (and his monkey madness climbing 2 stacked cars to get me the plastic trim for the window  Very Happy )
