I seee your point. It's probably more work that I have time for at the moment anyway...BX Bandit wrote:One track mind you folk, especially Mr Jay! You love it though really and I did secretly have a scratch'n'sniff of the seats
David, hmmmm, that's a conundrum you've given me! This is what I had planned
1) remove all running gear, pipework, suspension, engine, gearbox air con wiring loom door mirrors, seats, and all black trim and 16v bumpers.
Essentially a shell with doors, bonnet and boot. Most of it is for spares, esp the head inc n/a camshaft and Bosch pump. The block I have provisionally sold to Doc.
The gearbox is non standard TD and I need the 3rd and 4th gear sets for the valver.
I've already removed all black trim and dash, rear seats, front discs/pads. You'll also need a new exhaust as the one on there is like French lingerie although you may get away with a patch job.
You'll also need a set of wheels although I can lend you four steelies.
Rust wise, there is some welding required on the rear chassis leg, it's got rust around the wind screen aperture although not the worst I've seen, the rear valance needs finishing, although I seem to remember I'd be better off removing the old one and fitting a new one.
In other news, the fact that you have white smoke and still have bubbles in your coolant is a point for concern. Bubbles should all be gone within a few minutes if you have no problems. Are they big bubbles or tiny frothy ones?
