Making progress

Recommended Posts

The list of work is finally making in roads.

Have changed the engine, the front swivel ball joints, replaced the front bumper upgraded the headlights.

Now I need to fix a diesel leak, replace the rear quarter and wing. Replace the head cloth and fix the leaking sunroof. 

All in all I feel I am getting somewhere just need to think about getting started on the P38

I wish I could say the same - just discovered a hole in the chassis and body outrigger 3 weeks before MOT time! Nearly set fire to it I was so p'd off!:o:o

Oh well, once the garage is built I can fix it at my leisure, until then it will be a SORN'd garden ornament. :)

I found out that my chassis was made of swiss cheese 3 months after I had bought it. Now sits on a galvanised chassis which is the only reason I keep regenerating it.

A new chassis is appealing other than the epic price tag! Cannot justify it for my sh!t box - I'll just keep on welding!

It was worth it at the time and I have certaily had my money out of it having covered 50k in 6 years with the last two parked up. The bodywork needs some welding done, inner wings and rear wheel arches have rusted so that is the major work that needs done however the next real job is the offside rear wing which is dented and will replace the headcloth at the same time.
