My classic my2000 uk turbo project

Recommended Posts

Hi all 

I am putting up my project it’s going to be a long term project on restoring and getting rid of the ugly off the car

i will start of by saying I was looking for a nice classic but I was getting faced with time wasters ect.

i got to the point that I was going to go new age then my other half found this on eBay and said you have rebuilt a few of you friends engines over the years and it’s a passion of yours

so what about this one that needs an engine so at that point I contacted the seller and purchased the car.

the problem was it was in Brighton East Sussex and I live in Liverpool as I moved up here 6 years ago.

so I set about getting the car recovered 2 weeks ago and found an engine with 70k on the clock

just so I could get it running then I could move it around with out pushing it.

my long term goal it to do an sti8 short block with v6 sti heads but for now this engine will be spot on I hope 

it’s always a gamble when you buy used but I hope it pays off for a while 

here are some of the pictures so far 

I have some uk rear light ready for it 

I have a s/s up pipe 

black oil filter 

gasket set 

the parts are coming in slowly

I am trying I probably could have started with a better condition car but I bet we all say that.

the rain has stopped play at the moment as I want to refresh and paint the alternator and power steering pump and air con pump I keep wanting to rush the engine back in but no I have to wait as there is to much to do before hand.

 

i just got a quote from a body shop if I supply the repair panels they will cut the rear arches out and replace them and paint for £450.00 per side also £300 for a bear metal repaint of the bonnet this includes blending into the wings.

and £400 to repaint f/ bumper and side skirts and rear spatts 

do you think this is a good price 

he also said windows out repaint £3000 this price will include the rear arches and side skirts

I had quotes of about £3.5k fir a full respray due to paint fade (no rust repairs)

Have a look at automotive repair panels on f.b , ray does good quality rear arch and sill repair panels for a reasonable price

Engine is now in today did a school boy error today so I had to take it back out and put it back in.

after putting all the bolts in for the gear box and the engine mounts 

I went to the back of the car and thought why have I got 2 clutch release bearings sat here then it hit me oh crap I forgot to put it in

well out it came again lol

so I have filled the oil filter and left it over night so I can top it up tomorrow then put the coolant in if I remember rightly to bleed the system I need to take off the small pipe of the header tank 

I have disconnected the crank and cam sensor so I can prime the system 

cant wait it’s like Xmas morning ha ha

Looks like im gonna have to stop logging in on s.o.c ...... everyone seems to be at the "I've fitted my engine stage "

And I'm still wating on written confirmation from my insurance company to see if the v1 is going to be repaired and eating my dinner in the front room due to the bug lump still being on the kitchen table 🤣

Nice work, and best of luck with the initial start up and coolant system bleeding , bud

Nice work so far bud 👍, to get the black trims off you have to take the window rubber off and there's a few screws hold it aswell as a couple of pop out clips 😉👍
