Well some of you will recognise this car. My son has owned it for about four Years now.
This was bought as a 4 door super auto and was quickly converted to a manual 3 rail 2000e box.
Early this Year the car was up for sale .But, when lock down 1 started I was put on furlough and, decided this would be an ideal project to kill the boredom whilst off work.
We had already rebuilt a 711m engine which is all new and +60 bore now. The main things which let the car down are the dreadful paint job in aubergine which was applied so thick had crazed on most panels and despite wet sanding was just too bad to bring it back. The other main issue was the awful red carpets. Great quality hessian backed .But, not good with a black interior and aubergine.
So, off I went attacking the paint under the bonnet which had a mix of red oxide, black satin ,ziebart and original fern green. The exterior had been sprayed twice Light blue. Then the aubergine on top.
Decided we'd go for Monaco Red which is in the under bonnet shots. Then low and behold three weeks into furlough get a call to say work is stacking up and I'd come off furlough.
So, now not getting a lot of time. But, new carpet fitted wings bonnet and roof bare metalled and primed and a few thick layers slowly coming off other panels.
Just bought a good used Janspeed manifold and system which should be on in the next few days.
