Well as i said i've got a unit now and the bug went in BUT it's back out again cos Carl needs a car to use due to being screwed over with the bay..

So the resto is on hold but gives me chance to hoard some more bits for her.. Twisted Evil

If you need any engine bits I have amassed lots of shiney and go faster bits for a 1641 afro

Cheers to Gaz for the free set of 70's wings with lights Twisted Evil Your a sweetheart.. tongue


Decided that the front wings needed changing before i could use it the other day so whacked them on looks loads better with the uprights on. Twisted Evil But no pics...

I used it for 3 days wondering why it felt a bit funny to drive then on the way to the lock up i took the 'little lane short cut' very bumpy...
Then realised that the rear shocks are bolted to the front of Spennys bus affraid affraid

The rear shocks are now bolted back on Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

I fitted all 4 of the 70's wings, lights and indicators i got from Gaz (cheers dude) And also took the semi w off and fitted my 70's vented engine lid (still needs a 70's rear panel)...

Looks loads better then it did...

As you said boss...


Right got up this morning a thought i'll pop down the workshop to kill a couple hours so got there about 8ish..





Thought i'd just rip the wings off
But got a bit carried away and this happened.. affraid







Both doors off and only had to drill on screw out.
All four wings off.
Bonnet and deck lid off.
All windows are out.
All seats out...
Fuel tank out.

That was between 9-9:30.. Still had a hour is to kill so what else could i do ??

I know.......... I'll see if the body will come off easy.... Rolling Eyes











And yep it did,i lifted it off and both channels are shagged but thats about it really.. Very Happy

Cheers peeps.

But it won't be a quick resto, i'll just be doing bits at a time when i can fit it in... So your gonna be watching for a while i think...
I'm in no rush, but it'll be done before i start on the bus so hopefully the bug will be completed this year.. Shocked

This is the sort of plan at the moment Twisted Evil

Complete strip down.
Get the floor, body edges, suspension and engine tin sand blasted.
1500 or GT box.
Keeping the the same motor but will get a couple of little mods.
All new brakes, steering and suspension.
All new rubbers.
All new interior.
All new chrome.
Mag industry, gas burners or something along those lines.
Narrowed beam.
Paint the floor, suspension, and tin in 2K black..
Paint the body in the OG 2K metalic blue .
Upright 70's wings, lights and rear panel.
Europa bumpers.
Narrowed adjustable with drop spindles and disk.

And what ever repairs need doing. Off the top of my head..

Both heater channel bottom plates. Due to the body being welded to the floor.
Rear section of the drivers heater channel.
Drivers inner front arch.
Pair of doors.
Spare wheel well.
Rear panel.
Not sure about the floor pans but i think they're pretty good.

That little lot should keep me going for a couple days lol!
