As i indicated previously i employed the services of a solicitor to try and recover my car but circumstances have moved on and the management of the facility where my vehicle is stored,have taken back control of the restorers yard and have now padlock control.
They have advised me that I will shortly be able to get my car back and hopefully recover all the parts I have given that idiot.
I thank everyone who has been supportive with my difficulties but pointless criticism from certain parties who have no idea of the challenges have been less than helpful.
Of course I now have to find someone to take the project on. If anyone has any ideas and recommend someone who has the capability and knowledge of these cars to take it on in Essex or East London that would be great .

Maybe the guys at Essex Rotary may have a connection or two in the bodywork / restoration field.

Good luck

I can also vouch for Aston at Essex Rotary, who has done a lot of work on my RX-8 over the years, including rebuilding and bridgeporting my engine in 2017 :D
KIMI 1 : RX-7 1st Gen "hybrid"; 1983 S2 running gear in a 1985 S3 shell, SORN'd, long term resto project
KIMI 2 : RX-7 1st Gen; 1983 S2, "identical" twin to KIMI 1, on the road :-)
Plus a 2004 Full Bridgeported RX-8 too!
