progress so far this weekend



















Then started to fix all the messed up wiring loom and poor clifford g5 installation that was hanging down everywhere, so out came the dash and started re-tapeing the whole thing back into shape.
Removed all the scotch lock's and crap solder joints and replaced with heatshrink crimp connectors  8)

Its a centre cap off what i'm told are renault 19 alloys? Only prep'd and primered 2 of them so far

Was only meant to fix the fusebox wiring and tuck up the clifford control box instead i thought might aswell do it properly like everything else so far and rip the dash out   :D

And who ever installed the clifford g5 unit needs shooting as i've found scotch locks onto door pin wiring, not soldered a couple of wires just twisted and taped it and pure and simply put a half arsed job.

Got to finish the rest off today but had a few drinks last night down the pub so it's a slow start today  :lol:

I know all about the dodgy alarm wiring.

Mine had at least 2 different alarms/immobilisers fitted in the past and the wiring was shocking. Cleaned most of it up over the years but i still have a problem with my fuel pump running with the ignition on.

I could do with yanking it all out and starting again, trouble is as soon as it's up and running all i do is drive it.  :D

nope their too big, scrub on full lock and need a good bead blasting and refurb to make them look half decent again

small update :)

Bolted a new battery tray in.
Put a spare battery on and checked all the electrics work everything seems good  8)
And it the engine still starts  :D

Little video of it alive again albeit slightly smokey and idle a tad high
[youtube:1yol5rod]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oD_h_FQaw3I[/youtube:1yol5rod]

Going to have to flush the oil as its gone a tad milky from where i couldn't drain the oil cooler so suspect it was full of water  :roll:

Fitted new side skirt clips on the car and put the skirts and front arches back on and it looks like a 5 turbo again  :D

MOT some time next month just need to sort the little things out first

ok the brakes wont bleed properly   :roll:   so i went out and brought a new master cylinder as it only cost 27 and the rear bias valve seems to be working fine
oh and a easy bleed kit as these like to be pressure bled  



Then got cracking on the wheel refurbing  :)



And the apprentice is doing bodywork stuff  :)





first time i used the camera since christmas   :oops:

Just need to order tyres, flush the engine oil, fit a new battery and sort insurance and then its mot time  :mrgreen:
