So here is the current project, i purchased this car only 3 days ago.
The car was falsely advertised which sucks, as it need a lot more work than advertised....but i did pick it up for £295 so i cant complain to much i guess.
Work i have done so far and is currently being done.
Had full service, oil change, spark plugs etc etc.
Purchased new alternator as the old one was not working correctly.
Purchased new water pump and timing belt.
Purchased new power steering belt.
Cleaning up the calipers.
Next on the list is changing the Exhaust manifold Cat, and rear break pipes.
Needs some welding work done on the passenger sill but my father in law is going to do that for me.
And needs some slight body work, which i will attempt myself.
I will try to keep this post updated as the work is carried out, for those who are interested.
Unfortunately they always need a bit more work than the sales say what's wrong with the cat on manifold
I am not mechanically minded at all so forgive my lack of knowledge here, but as far as im aware, its just in bad shape, very rusty etc, been told it would be unlikely to pass mot in april with it so need changing, will try and get a picture of it tonight.
So i have had a new alternator fitted, along with a new power steering belt, timing belt, water pump and calipers greased.
I have made a start on the body work also, i started yesterday, i have picked up some primer and paint also from halfords so that will be painted today.
Here is a picture of some of the rust (there was more than what is shown in this image.
Here is some of the patch work, i used a angle grinder to get it back to bare metal and used a rust stopper and then used a car filler, on the main hole however i had to fiberglass that then filler it.
Also as i have a rip in the drivers seat, i decided to invest in some car seat covers
I will post pictures once the car patch work has been painted.
