Depends what damage is done @RattyMcClelland

It's not the end for the car that's for sure.

went round to have a look at this today
amazingly the car fired up and the idle was good but sounding a bit rough and some intermitent nasty noises from the head
loads of condensation out the exhaust so took the spark plugs out and the chambers were full of coolant
:(
gutted for you mate

still on the up side might see you back in a lude :)

If I'm back in a lude it's only temporary ;)

Already got a list started

New headgasket
New headbolts
New valve stem seals
All rad/coolant hoses being replaced with silicon hoses

Can't think of anything else I might need.

Ill also get the head checked over.
