Recommended Posts

Dunno about that,  weather's been sunshine n showers ,so this afternoon the car covers been up n down like a whores draws 😂

And the inlet manifold is back on the kitchen table again , instead of in the bay 🤪

But hey ,just gotta pop round a mates in the morning to blow the inlet and fuel set up through clean, with a air line and some petrol . Then I can start to put it back together at last .

What's up with yours ,have you sussed the coolant leak Mattie?

Correctly bleed coolant system from filler tank after certain dealer made a mess of the job. See video on dashcam forum, current last video.

The old Leggy lasted but a week in new ownership.  Owner says cruising at 80, missfire, lots of smoke and oil out of dipstick, done a piston.

Hmmm, always seemed to be sounding sweet and well maintained in your ownership 🤔.

Hope he's being reasonable about it , bud

Yeah no problems at all hes a good bloke and I gave it a good test run for him to see it ran properly before he took it.  He's now deciding on rebuilt or break it 😥.  I suspect he'll break it because he wants 400bhp and didn't know that will mean a new 6 speed box too.

My starter motor has been playing up lately so I had a look in the shed and found one from a facelift. To my surprise  it fits perfectly.

Gave it a good clean and a repaint to match my shiny gearbox

And so it begins.....Tidying up the bay is a very Slippery slope . 

"Oh I'll just fit this shiney bit " 😎

"Oh that shiney bit has made the rest of the bay look shoddy" 😏

"Must Buy more shiney bits now " 😋

Finished work early today ,so decided to switch the 4 in 1 gauge sensors over to the defi ones and wire the defi controller and gauges in 😎

 

Soon realised (again) that I'm much happier wealding a spanner, than doing sparky stuff 🙄

I’m a electrician and I detest car electrics, they’re a dark and evil art. More electronic than electrical (bigger difference than you’d think) the stuff in cars. Always a million ****** cables everywhere you look in cars too.

Good luck haha!

Chilled day in the sun decided to paint my rocker covers. Pictures don't do it justice the red paint I used was from eBay honestly one of the best spray cans I've ever used. Camera doesn't show up the pearl in it

Nice work bud , told ya .....

You'd get carried away with a shiny bay 😂

Cleaning ,Prepping and painting is time consuming but it's relatively cheap and looks good imo 😎

Not strictly today but forgot to post it up.

Got to this point over the weekend then stopped to enjoy the sun and a few cold beverages.
Will hopefully get back on it this week get it pulled and find out what damage is done, then I can start working on a rebuild spec and figure out what order is best to rob the local banks in1f866f2675a45737d454b5f9c06a12b1.jpg
