Ill keep you posted JP, first impressions are good.
I agree it would benefit from more adjustment of the steering wheel

I have created an album, hopefully. The first batch of pictures shows the condition as it went in to the garage

I have started stripping the car down and today the powder coating guy called round and picked up the subframe, suspension arms and a few brackets plus the wheels

The diff mount looked like it wouldnt last much longer so I enquired about a new / replacement mount and the prices are eye watering for a few simple pressed parts and a bit of rubber
I found a source of casting polyurathane with a little help from others and will give a home made approach a go

It took 2 goes as I wasnt happy with the first effort, the second one has turned out great though

De rusting of the underside has been going on for a few weeks and in the process I snagged the wire to the ABS sensor and pulled it out.
I was planning on removing the sensor to see if reconnecting is possible but the sensor isnt budging
Is there a special technique involved?

Lots of penetrating fluid possibly a bit of careful heat?

I know these can be a real pain to get out.

Thanks, just being careful in case they screwed out on a left hand thread or something equally non intuitive lol

I have recently removed all 4 sensors to check them - recommend carefully applying constant gentle prising pressure with a screwdriver whilst also very slightly twisting forwards and backwards... got all 4 out without incident :P

The sensors are not screwed into the hub, they're a push fit held in place by the securing bolt you have depicted above.

Good luck!

Got it out Kris, thanks

Do we think this will repair / solder?

No. Secondhand is probably your best answer :(
