I thought I'd bring this thread back to life as the car is now really coming along really well.
Just a brief list of things I've done to the car over the last few months. Feeling very proud of mysrlf as I've done all (well, most) of the work myself.
New grooved and vented discs and pads (Brembo and Mintex)
Refurbished and repainted Brembo calipers with stainless bleed nipples fitted and Brembo decals
New genuine front shocks and gaiters
New track rod ends
New genuine front wishbones (with all new genuine bolts)
New drop links
Corrosion spots under front arches corrected and waxoyl-ed
New brake fluid
New (polybushed) rear spring pans and lower rear arms from Autolusso
New discs and pads (Brembo and Mintex)
Refurbished brake calipers with stainless bleed nipples
Replaced corroded rear brake pipes
The car has also been sandblasted underneath, repainted and injected/coated in Waxoyl into all cavities.
I also stripped both doors, adjusted the windows so they fit properly when the doors are closed, waxoyl-ed inside and lubricated the window mechanism to get rid of the squeeeeking sound.
I've also sourced myself a white/cream leather interior. I've painted up the patches that were a little worn with special leather paint and given it a damn good scrubbing with Ajax/Cif. It would look very nice eventually fitted along with the dark blue carpet that came with them.
More recently I fitted a cup kit (minus the vented wings - not sure about those) and put the car in for a respray.
I popped into the garage today to see how the respray is going. It looked a little scary but I'm sure it will be fine when its finished. I should be getting it back this time next week..
