Looking at the car I did wonder why you were keen to take it on, is no6 the key?

Just seen this thread. Glad to see the car is in safe hands and yes, you're right, Lagoon is not an expensive paint so at least that's one thing less to be concerned about.

My own lagoon is poorly at the moment. Makes a horrendous knocking noise on startup that sounds like main bearings . Stops after around 60 seconds or so and from them on sounds as sweet as a nut. It was supposed to be in with Lates & Pete today but that had to cancelled as Pete has had an accident and is currently on crutches. No doubt it will get sorted in due course. Frustrating though (but worse for poor old Pete).

Looking forward to seeing updates on No.6 .

Cliff

Looking forward to the hearing how she makes her way back onto the road.

Good Luck.

She’s still on the road Andy!! I’ve had a quick look underneath and the sills, rear arms and tank straps look in very good condition.

The interior has seen better days! The drivers seat has a huge burn in the backrest of all places? And that ‘stain’ on the seat base, I shall see how the rest of it looks when I have donned my hazmat suit.

Well I have made a start, the engine bay has had a quick clean, upon checking the plenum I found a small compost heap, off with the scuttle panel and borrow the hoover to ensure all is clean and dry!

The air, pollen and (lack of) pcv filter have been changed as well.

Amazing what difference a little cleaning makes. She looks better already

What did you use to get the engine bay looking so nice and clean?

Done a great job on the engine bay.
