cant work on the car at the moment as we are in lock down , but heres some pics of all the repainted parts.
got all the brakes bled up as well as the painting so once i can get back down to the garage it should just be a matter of bolting it all back together.
as you say mygasser the front wheels are bigger than you think .
started to paint a few bits today but on closer inspection they still need a bit of work so i have opted to repair and paint later in the week. how ever bleed the clutch up today and it works spot on so during the week i will bleed up the brakes.
can not load any pics at the moment so will try later.
header wrap looks neat (it's a poxy job i know) but the 2 v band clamps are about all that's left uncovered and coincidentally are also the 2 bits closest to the inlet pipes that go over them. the first and second pics without the inner wings show just how big the wheels are too, more so than an 'outside' pic.
rest of the floors now dyno mated.
and stripped of a few more pieces that are going purple.
hopefully get them painted through the week.
i have had a bit of a result through the week,
put the starter motor on and wired it up and turned the key, result engine turns over. one step closer so this weekends mission is to put everything back on the engine so that may be by next week i can try and start it.
not a bad day today,
got the clutch all bolted up to the flywheel and the box bolted to the engine and the whole lot is now back in the car. need to order the flexi pipe for the clutch and once thats all in and working i can connect the engine up.
pics on tomorrow.
i really dont like the idea but to be fair it never felt finished in side and any way the floors where getting marked up with getting in and out.
How did you feel covering all that nice painted quilted floor with the dynamat? must have been a little bit gutting to cover it over.
yes that is one of the jobs on the list.
i have had some really silly quotes for wrapping the bumpers in chrome ( 350 quid ) and also for having the bumpers chromed ( £750/£1400 ) so i think i am going to paint them in the alsa chrome. with doing them in the paint i can also do the front grill and rear light frames.
theres still a few more parts in the engine bay that are going purple instead of the copper colour.
You need to get the cortina script back to chrome as well.........
