Some pictures from last weekend..


Started with the tailgate - fitted rubbers, locking mechanisms, wiring, etc


One rear window in


And the other side..


A dash I bought (because mine had some holes in it). Pretty fookin messy! You can't see it really, but it has quite a bit of over spray on it, however I managed to clean it up nicely.


Sound deadening in


Heater matrix in


Dash in and majority of the wiring connected

Couldn't get anything done this weekend, but will be cracking on next weekend with pics to be added

'fraid not. Didn't really get anything done last weekend due to crap weather, and my helper (my Dad) wasn't feeling too well. He's still not too well, but I think I'll just try and crack on on my own this weekend, even if it's simple bits :) so hopefully pics this weekend.

Not much progress this weekend either. Was gonna be putting the engine in today, but other things came up. Yesterday got the engine ready to go in (pretty much)..

Just a few piccies:


Gearbox off


Old clutch off


Old clutch


New clutch


Clutch fitted


New release bearing fitted

And then other stuff I didn't take photos of - Putting all the loom back on, alternator on, etc.

Just need to drain the oil and change the filter and the engine should be back in next weekend.

OK - So.. Decided I want to be more thorough when rebuilding. I was just gonna throw it all in, as it was before, but I decided I'd get some stuff cleaned up / repainted.

Before:




Removed the subframe and all the other crap:




Then removed the struts / steering rack / hubs / driveshaft all in one from the subframe





Also found a nice surprise



Hole in the sill! Looks like my Dad will be using his MIG soon

My cars new home - the tent was trying to take off with the wind, and has damaged the paintwork on the gutter plastics. Not too big a deal.. I'll just get some sprayed up at some point

Did the doors today and yesterday


This was the worst hinge (note how off centre it is)


My dad doing all the hard work :lol:


Pushing a sleeve in (and some nice brand placement)


Sleeve in


All greased up!


Right door


Left door

It's tonnes better now - it all lines up, and there is absolutely NO play in the doors! Pretty happy with it all (I did this to all 4 hinges)

I also did some more stripping of the subframe ready for powder coating. The wishbone bushes were an absolute bitch!
