Got to many things on the go, like most of us.. Never voted this year ( again) cause no one will ever give me a wage rise and a 3 day week with 32 weeks holiday, so this stuff will just sit and rust till I get round to it.
Latest mistake errr purchase was this Karmann Ghia. Seen it on ebay, had some cash under the bed, it was reasonably local MOTd and on the road, always liked them so donned the rose tinteds and jumped in. Actually it drives real nice, nothing some dropped spindles, beanm adjusters and twin kadrons cant fix though... soon get that sucker bump steerin and backfirin all the way to the end of the street.
It looked OK when I looked it over and I sa most of the bad bits, and kinda overlooked on purpose the bad der bits.
paid up dove it home, parked it up, looked it over, bit the bullet and tore it apart..
5 litres of nitromors sorted the paint, £1000s of new parts will fix the remainder. ( pretty much got most of them now)
So what needs replaced, Floorpans, outer sills, rear lower wing quarters, engine bay panel, front headlamp panels, headlamp bowls, front nose cone, both front inner wings, air boxes, nostril boxes, both doors, bonnet, engine cover, all the glass every rubber seal, wheels tyres, brakes, steering, wiring, fuel tank and the interior.
decided as well to 60s it so some work to the tail light housings and front indicator housing to ditch the kitch 70s stuff and do the groovy 60s stylee..
Im going to start on tis as soon as the ally junk im doing now has vanished..
then the wifes 70s 304 convertible, maybee... or the stag, or maybee the A40 pick up.. I feel sick
