Got the Kit!
22 December 2001 by Kerry
tiger After much rushing around last week to get the engine out of the Sierra and remove the exchange parts I had to take to Tiger (steering linkage, front suspension struts, gearstick and sump), I hired a Luton van and set off for Thorney. I suffered what will no doubt be the first of many Tiger-inflicted injuries while I was there - a cut finger from an aluminium panel. I managed to scrounge a plaster, but not before dripping blood over the body panels and the back of the van.
Other than that, loading up was a fairly painless operation, as was the journey home (apart from a bit of snow). I managed to avoid hitting anything right up to the moment I got home, when I discovered that the branch of the apple tree that overhangs our drive is a fraction under 10 foot 6 off the ground! No damage done though, so I got my deposit back.
All the bits are now in the small garage until I've got the rest of the stuff I need off the Sierra, relegating the Land Rover to standing outside in the wet.
I've had a flick through the build manual, and I can see I now have a daunting time ahead of me. I just hope the kit's put together a bit better than the manual...
