Here we go then our new family member after washing three years of dust from it, there\'s a little tin worm but all in all in very good condition for a UK motor. I\'ve sorted a number of minor faults and given all the brakes etc a quick pull down over the last 24hrs, so barring the aircon needing re-gassing everything is back to operational status and it\'s MOT time. Then a full mechanical shakedown prior to taking the paintwork right back over the winter and giving it a full respray to put the bodywork back into A1 condition............. I\'d forgotten what a standard engine bay looked like LOL.

Kev

Kev I thought you were reducing the amount of cars you had haha.
Nice motor mate, gie me a ring when it ends an MOT. :)

Yep just a sedate run a round this one and no mods given how rare un-modified UK cars are getting now, it\'s going to get a case of TLC only. Plan is run this and shake down the mechanicals whilst preparing and respraying the orange one and then onto this with no time constrains.

Already booked in for tomorrow aft Steve with my local guy, emission\'s shouldn\'t be a issue but he can get that covered if they are without resorting to methanol doping.

^^ LOL

To be honest I really don\'t have space for it , I was only going to get it to save it from the scrap man

Im happy that Kev got it - it will get some TLC in his hands

I have enough to worry about with the white one of mine , never mind the JDM one on the front lawn rotting away

Well that\'s one more FC back on the UK roads, just a advisory on a brake pipe.

Kev your a hero - I knew this car would be a find !
 
Shame it was so far away. That\'s a lovely looking car now it\'s cleaned up. So the big question - was it really Dawn French\'s car ? (Given the number plate and all)

Frank all toys have been off the agenda for a couple of years due to a few issues, but fingers crossed I\'ll be back on the case in the coming months.
Anyone wanting to donate a battery box cover LOL, also a aircon Rad, condenser, fan and pipework.......... essentially the kit that\'s in front of the main Rad?
Dave the vehicle history I\'m going to chase up on at some point, but want to get the mechanicals all 100% first.
 With that in mind I\'m after a stock looking exhaust any suggestions other than the racingbeat bad boy?  http://www.racingbeateurope.com/bracing-beat-rev-t11-complete--exhaust-system-for-1987-to-91-turbo-iib-1386-p.asp
