Great work. Is it a difficult job getting the seats and carpet out?

The end result of two days of intensive detaring and cleaning of the exterior and engine bay. Note there are no dressing on anything or Polish, I'm trying to judge the car as I go.



















Plan to swap the rims over the weekend. I've brand new front discs and pads sitting here, and pretty sure brand new rear discs and pads in the shed also.

As I've cleaned it I've discovered significantly damage to the under sides of front and rear bumpers and exposed the damaged sills more.

So when they are changed I'm almost certain I will "cowley" the car by diy painting the sills black to keep the costs down. I will likely however gloss black them as I really liked the look on my tourer when it was a Mk1.






Shall MOT first and then paint them so repairs can be inspected.

Things are coming along. Insured and taxed today. So have began cleaning the car properly. I'm unsure how I'm going to bring up the carpet but work in progress.





















And I had to fit a full wood dash also.

Minor but satisfying job today.



I know it's on the wrong side but someone had scraped off the union flag and damaged the paint work. So a slight touch up, removal of 75 badge, fit a cdti badge in black and then a mk2 tourer boot plinth is as wild as I'm going with this car lol.

Well finally I had a chance to do possible the most awkward that should be simple job on our cars.......



.......joy of joys.

Well I got the car bled up, and horror, what came out of the system, not contaminated fluid like I expected but actual black ENGINE OIL. Used engine oil by the looks of it, either it was the original fluid from factory (which i cant see as the cars at 230k miles) or someone has actually bled it up with engine fluid during a clutch change.

Pedal is now miles better obviously, id say if before was an 8 outta 10 for stiffness (orrr errr matron) now its around a 4 out of 10, my v6 slave is very light so id place it about a 2.5 outta 10 on the same scale with a brand new setup being a 1 out of 10 so im more than happy and even the wife was able to put car in gears without any hassle.

So I finally got to get a drive in her, and my word, what a comfy bus!

Its much more comfortable than my club se 75 auto, but im not sure if I can live with the wallow quite so much. One day I may resolve it, and move the suspension from it onto my other 75 and do something akin to a ztt setup, but thats long off.

For now!
