Well, here she is! Had a fun day with her, was going to give her the full works, but iain gave me the car in tip top condition so all it needed was a hoover, a wash and some trim/leather cleaning. My dad decided he'd be nice and clay the car for me, only to leave it for an hour before buffing off (in this heat too!) - needless to say it's taken me the rest of the day (and the use of my arms) to get it buffed out!
She handles great and is mechanically in good condition; she's just in need of a bit of TLC really. So far I've compiled a wee list of things it needs (I want more like!):
New front badge (and possibly grille)
New gear knob
Pillar seal on the drivers side
Possibly a new MAF
Refurbed existing or new alloys
New windscreen washer tank
New wiper blades
Air con regas
Drivers side bolster fix
Front fog light bulb
Other things I'll maybe get done in due course:
Respray of front and back bumpers
New brake calipers (blue!)
Everything works, even the electric aerial!
But I guess, as with any car like this it has it's quirks. Sometimes it won't open from the inside drivers door - think the handle is loose, and the boot lid squeaks when it's open, just the hydraulics I guess.
Anyway, here's to my newest labour of love! Much credit to iain, he's done a cracking job with it, and I'd recommend him as poster of the year or something!
