Engine – refurbished, refitted and running.
New exhaust system fitted
Wings & bonnet have been rubbed down primed, painted and fitted
Hopefully we will get a more detailed update with photos soon.
Over the weekend we did enough work that the engine now fires up using the key and the car has had a short drive around the garden to give it a little test and move around under the car port.
Most of the front electricals have been sorted now. Side, Dipped, Main and indicator lamps all work, along with the horn. so left to wire is the washer pump and heater motor. A rear chassis loom has also been made and will be plugged in tonight and tested for the rear lights. The next big step is getting the panels all lined up before they get painted and any holes than need drilling can be put in.
Photos are essential…
Get them uploaded or we’ll all die 👍
It sounds like you’ve been busy with this one. I’m currently trying to rub down and paint the panels on the Series One and by God it takes forever. Are you using a power tool or doing it by hand?
Agree with Stace, need pictures!! 🙂
