A great report! I read about it at first in the MSCC magazine. And I think: ohoh, out with a trailer, back with the trailer and an engine... And I think a lot of wives are not happy. They can't see the real worth ;-) (of the future fun). I know it, I' ve got a classic MINI and I found some engines...
Than I see your way: a lot power for (nearly) a budget. And I was not far away to travel to Britain. To collect such an engine.
But than after a cup of coffee it was clear I could never get a chance of "TÜV"/ MOT in Germany and than after 40 years experience in frontwheeldrive cars I' m affraid that on twisty roads the back would be faster than my reaction.
I see you've done it right! And I'm still learning.
