I plan on putting a lot of time and money in to it of course. Some people find it interesting to watch others progress on there cars. That's what gave me motivation to get my own.

I took some photos of the original condition I bought it in last w/e. Today was the first day I actually did anything to it. I took off the hideous roof rack mounts. I've only got tape over them atm but when I look at repainting the car the factory color, I will weld them.

Bumper has had it. But intend on getting whole new body kit now so will be gone soon.





Totally factory as you can see.

This is what I got done today. These bastards were riveted on so had to drill the heads then push em through so they're sitting in the roof lining atm.

Engine is running good atm so will be focusing on the interior and body. Bit underpowered at the moment but I reckon it's because the oil filter is ancient, oil hasn't been changed since forever and same with sparks. So I've got all that ready to be done.

Engine bay pic.  Has all rusty water on rad.  So probably little or no anti freeze.  Also look into is the rusty water just there because someone opened the cap and it overflowed or other issues, leaking cap, top tank etc.

Yeah. I'd say overheated. Cap looks very old so will def need replacing. Might flush rad tomorrow too. Probably no anti freeze by my guess.

When I said love and care I didn't mean performance mods, I meant cleaning and tidying up, as the gentleman above pointed out its coated in rusty water and is in general grubby and prolly needs a fluid flush, also the amplifier power feed running is atrocious

But of course :p

Also was inspecting drivers window regulator today. Have already got one coming from Harley. Does the reg come out through the top or do you move it sideways out one of the holes?

The reg is just behind the door skin, no special tricks, I also have spares if required and can rebuild them
