#379859 Restoration Project

Posted by Southbound on 29 June 2014 - 12:44 PM

Slowly getting there with the restoration, i have found that i have less tolerance for motor repairs than i initially thought!!!!


I fitted the new rear bumper myself last weekend and was so proud that i managed to unscrew two bolts and two screws that i thought i was a national hero haha, this weekend myself and a few friends had a bash at putting on the new door and wing, we got as far as changing the lock over on the new door before giving up due to the ridiculous amount of faffing about with the fixing plate...


As i get ever closer to making the car look good again i am having more and more technical problems with the car....


The overheating problem has magically vanished without the system being tampered with or flushed etc, but i have a new waterpump, thermostat, thermostat gasket and fan belt at work ready to go on the car, just need someone who knows how to fit them, and now my brakes have started making a horrible noise on the passenger side and not just under braking and i have what sounds like wheel bearings shagged out on the driver side....


Just need to come in to some money to solve it all, same boat as everyone else :(
