it's 1986 1.5
Probably spent more time over it fixing or cleaning something than driving it.
rust, paint, carburetors, shocks, clutch hydraulics, heater box, electrics, headlights,door trims, hoses, just to name a few things needing repair or replacement and alll the while dreaming of what to do next to a car that is in dollar value worth really nothing.
Must be crazy or have too much money and im certainly not well payed!
There's a 1.7 mechanical tappet engine in bits awaiting shell bearings in the shed and some konis coming for the front to match the back and geez I need some of those poly bushes all round ! Never ending really is it.
The new engines going to need a head job before we go any further also
anyone think there beyond repair?
The other job on the bench is fixing the front end exhaust leak which is popping more than one desires by bunging up the reed valves and some new gaskets.. Anyone make there own gaskets , high temp paper ,silicon or do i hunt out the gaskets?
For me It's all about the project, any excuse not to be painting bedrooms or building ikea furniture
