Well, it should be an investment. They'll not be getting any cheaper.

(How much was it? Of course you don't have to answer that, but I thought I'd be nosey and ask).

How's your woodwork, though?

Welding is one thing, but IIRC those have a hardwood frame which'll require some skills (and materials) additional to the usual mechanics set.

Paid 1900 for but! Its a one owner from new with a full service history including fuel logs. Its also come with a reconditioned set of wood and some repair panels. Im busy changing the sills and a crossmember end on it. Its a kind of bangernomics as all the money im spending will add more to the value. I reckon it will be worth around 7k when iv finished. If i was doing it concourse maybe double that but i want to use it. Hopefully i wont spend more then aboutb 600-700 on it. Including all the paint filled welding materials, everything really. Parts are cheap and easy to get hold of.

Sounds like you've done well Thumb

Quite fancy a moggy myself. You're right about parts, too. Bet they're not bad on fuel either.

That's going to keep you busy for quite a while. Traveler prices are strong, so I'm sure you'll get everything you put in back.

I-spy a nice little Mazda in the background. Not yours is it?

No the Mazdas not mine. Its being stored there along with a knackered mk4 golf.

Hopefully the welding will be done soon. Dying to go out and work on it. But have other cars to fix this week.

Done my first tour of the year yesterday. Was a good day apart from the rain. Experienced brake fade for the first time as well going down a really long steep hill. Just about stopped before a junction onto a main road. Also had to explain to the girlfriend what brake fade is as i thought i was gonna crash 😂😂 all good fun tho.

I stripped the washers down today and gave them a good clean out with hot soapy water and compressed air. They work well now. Just need to put the glovesboxes back in tomorrow. Iv booked an mot for it on the 15th of may. Will give it a grease up and adjust the brakes beforehand. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
