been out tonight putting the finishing touches to the MOT prep, mirrors fitted , rear belts finally
finished off, front belts fitted even though i forgot to put the pillar trim on so it will need a couple of bolts off again
, rear hatch catch bolted in place, interior mirror found but was corroded
so has been sanded/primed/painted ready to go on tomorrow night.
looked at the rear washer bag mounting problem and thought a bracket from the light to the wheel arch would be easy enough to make, but would leave it for now as i don't think the rear washer comes into the test?
came in now and looked at suds and johns pics which look about like i was plannign on making, but also look kind of familiar so i think i may have a bracket somewhere
just got to find it now
thanks very much guys for taking the trouble to take the pics
got the badges fitted to the hatch and grille, surprising how much the little things make such a visual impact
i've gone with the bigger badge for the front grille for now. i do like the smaller one that shows off the red circle but the bigger one seems to be the correct
one and is in better condition, plus with a few shows lined up it might just help with it looking "correct"
if i do find a smaller badge in the newer style i may change it in the future, happy enough for now though
gingermike, thanks for the kind words
pleased it gave you a different afternoon
even when i look back and see the state the car was in it makes me cringe. i have only got this far because of the wisdom & wit of these fine guys on here. it seems there is a part of this car that belongs to everyone, not just me, so many people have helped with parts and advice. i really hope to meet as many of you in person and get your views on the car "in the flesh" as pictures can sometimes flatter things, or maybe not show up to the best . be nice to put faces to all the comments though, not just the regulars.
if anyone sees me at NAD or wherever please come and say hello
fingers crossed 6nut should
be ok but you never know
gonna give it a much needed wash and polish tomorrow night so it will look its best for the test.
