Progress on 17 RD D526 WCW at FEB 07

Post by jrdpod » Wed Feb 28, 2007 11:15 am

New clutch fitted. Got a recon one for half the price of a new one (£41 versus about £70). Work done by another classic car friend.

MOT due soon. Some minor welding to do, under n/s front floor pan (by cross member), and around rear o/s strut.
Drum cover on rear o/s also to be refitted, but a broken bolt to be drilled out first.

Removing old interior in advance of replacement. Carpet in passenger footwell soaked through anyway, due to aforesaid hole beneath.

One duff glow plug to trace and replace.

And mustn't forget to prime/hammerite the welds afterwards.

Regards
John Podgorski/jrdpod.

Well done. Are you photographing the progress? I don't suppose you'll be free to come to Matching Green on Sunday (it's not that far from you)... see thread in Events - Essex/Herts meet?

Have you got lots of different BX's with varying reg numbers of which you work on over a yearly basis :?:

Hey, Kitch, I'm not having-a-go-at-Kitch-day, but don't all BXs (in fact all cars) have varying reg numbers? :D





Sorry. Couldn't resist.... :wink:
