Finished with the dinitrol today

managed to get the back end all together and gave the rear calipers a lick of paint in prep for refitting

Little snap, sitting pretty low on the new springs, supposedly 35mm

Cheers guys!

Wasn't going to paint my front calipers till after the MOT but I'm bored waiting for parts to arrive....so carriers and calipers are done ;)

Image

Bought a second hand caliper for the rear off ebay weeks back, all looked great but picked it up today, tried the adjuster on the rear, would go out but not back in :'(

Pulled it apart and was faced with this in bits with shagged threads. Thankfully I had a good spare piston sitting around so fitted it and now looks like I have a working caliper :) hindsight I should have got hold of the seller and got my money back but it's all good now

Hi Scott, don't know where abouts you are in Ross Shire, but there is a white MK1 on the back of a pick up truck in Evanton, don't know if it's a breaker or not, but being there for a few weeks, if you need any parts it has 15" alloys on it (i think)

Spotted the one in Evanton, thought it was a breaker myself till I seen the guy selling it a few weeks back :)

All's been well so far since the MOT think the rear shocks are a bit on the lazy side now I have the autolink springs on the back so I'll be sorting that out in due course

Ian, your right, all been done in the back garden, definitely paid off and I'm getting to enjoy the last couple of months of sunshine :)

As she stands this evening...

Been parked up in the garage since the end of August and didnt want to tax her for a month before taking it off the road
Fired up first turn of the key so treated it to a wee run round the block, want it to be summer again!

Been busy getting her ready for summer!

got her out of the dark stinking hole of a garage i was storing in and went 2's with a mate on a decent garage

Began sorting some bad paint done by someone previous to myself, rear drivers 1/4 was pained to fix a little rust at the aerial base, panel was primed, painted and lacquered only on the rear of the panel and never cut in right, attempted to blend it in myself and was not happy at all with the job so decided for just now its getting redone, primer was showing through the top coat and there was a clear line where the lacquer met the old paint..... on top of that mariner blue was pained in celly so no lacquer would have ever been needed. It'll do this summer, long term plans are to give it a full paint but that'll wait till the summers over and give me a chance to get some new wings as im not happy with them either, anyway for just now this is how she is shaping up, all thats required now is a tyre and road tax and its ready to go! :)

This was all done out of a matched rattle can too as i don't have full spraying luxuries just yet!
