Carl has been hard at work on this car, leaving me free to work on the grey one. I'm certainly not regretting paying a silly small sum for this car, even though the work will cost, its still really satisfying to see it coming along. It will NOT be broken now, it isn't that far gone and theres life in her yet.csg100 wrote:Well after doing a couple of jobs on the black 16v this week I've taken it down to my Dad's workshop to give it a proper going over to see if it's feasible to save. And the good news is that it definately should be!!!
Got a few jobs to do before the MoT to get it right, namely:
2 x rear spheres
1 x accumulator sphere
1 x front wheel bearing
1 x front strut return pipe
1 x cambelt (not an MoT issue, but it's incredibly loose!)
Also gave it a quick clean with a pressure washer, still needs a proper wash and polish, but go the top layer of crap off to make it look a bit better:
A few more photos here:
So once the work is done and it's MoT'd she should be up for sale
Once the MOT is sorted, I think its my role to polish her up as Carl seems to hate cleaning cars!
We won't try and sell the grey one and black one at the same time...only BMC made the mistake of competing with themselves when they had the Marina and Allegro out!
Best way to work it is that they're both listed on here and BX club, and if they go to ebay they'll go one at a time. Although we already have an interested party in this black car, and I have a listed with about 10 names on for the grey one, all to be contacted as it nears completion.
