A running(ahem) restoration with MoT and Tax.

Currently misfiring with exhaust fumes coming out of the oil sections so piston rings probably worn - appart will come the engine block in the next few weeks!

Bodywise it is at the point where some minor work now will prevent bad problems later - (aftermarket?) sunroof leaks, some rust on C-pillar around rear screen leaks, needs new passenger door, general care of rust around arches need attention etc etc.

Am getting there!


Bought in 2003 for £200 but had been sitting in a garage but running well and with MOT. Just stopped running one day and then sat in a garage for 4 years! Shame on me..

I now have the desire to sort out any rust for good and have this as a rolling resto project. Currently looking for a good workshop in the UK to do the work.
