You are all welcome
Pascs, give me a call when you come ! We could arrange to meet for a beer or something
Kev, you might need to consider WELDING a longer fishing rod !
Oui, be careful what you wish for mate. July and August and most of September really, is hell in Cyprus if you arent living IN the sea ! 40 degrees is under shade ! Last year in August it was 46 degrees under shade. I used a digital thermometer with a max temp memory in my sprint a couple of years ago, and it hit 65 degrees in the parking lot !
This would explain why the dashboards crack and all the plastic trim on the car turns to powder !
The overall status of my Sprint isnt THAT bad ! The door pillars are solid - fixed them up a couple of years ago - and the sills are decent enough. Floor panels and the whole underside of the car is rust free.
The most serious problems are the rear wheel arches - which I got replacements from Justsuds two or three years ago and have been storing them - and the front windshield frame which has some big holes.
The rear end especially under the rear hatch needs some taking care of as well, but other than than, its just bits and pieces that need attending.
I will start taking it apart tomorrow and pictures will follow as it goes along.
I've also sold the engine thats currently on the car today, so I'll be taking the engine out soon
