    image.jpg I do have over 200 pictures/videos but my phone does not like to play ball when trying to upload.

    This is more of a maintenance build as the stuff I'm doing is fairly common but I will post when I can. I'm in the process of moving house so I expect the car to be off the road November time for brakes and suspensio image.jpg n overhaul also some rust treatment.

    As you can see the rust on each rear arch I will be getting that cut out and a plate welded in over winter. This is the worse side n/s

    A little under the battery tray and slight bubble around the screen. To be fair pretty solid considering some of the Horror story's. Well it's now tucked up in my new garage so I'm more than chuffed that its sitting dry and next month (when I start the work) I can strip it down and not worry about the weather.

    I will indeed matey and I will be doing work on the weekends I need to get some more parts like front springs to match the dampers I bought, rear shocks, 15" wheels", front rear discs and pads inc bearings, service parts (already got) and fit that bloody front mount if funds allow. I have to clear garage out so take all garden stuff out into shed when I get one.

    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg Little update,
    Wheels off and swapped for some Williams wheels that I will be getting painted gold they are currently black.
    Also bonnet off grill off radiatir out alternator out. Oil changed and wiring for fan stripped back to have a look at why it's not working, I think I have found the main culprit (not ruling out further issues) fee pictures

    Nice work fella, looking forward to seeing it on gold Williams wheels, reckon it will look sweet! Think rear arches are abit of a common issue where they rust through into the inside of the boot along the seam. :)
