So have the car back again, exhaust replaced, rear bumper replaced and miscellaneous other bits and bobs done.
But not fit for the test yet-I need ABS sensors and perhaps more.
Also, the throttle seems to be sticking open-or at least the revs stay high when pulling to stop.
Also will need to get a new back box or some part of exhaust section as the 'new' exhaust doesn't protrude out the back like the other one did (which looked ok, but was a 'muppet job' underneath....)
Replaced the binnacle but still no speedo or odometer. Next thing to try is the speedo drive.
Central locking still not working-passenger door light is illuminated on the check panel-so have started looking for a new locking mechanism for that door.
Want to get the electrics sorted as well-hopefully have 1 or 2 people lined up to have a look. At the same time they can fix the stereo wiring (the wires on the loom have been cut) and maybe look at the speaker wiring as well.
Oh yeah, and it appears the car was crashed as the chassis is a bit off-so I can't replace/re-fit the front bumper until I get this sorted.
As I said, this will be a project....
Cowboys Ted, they're a bunch of cowboys!
