Rear bumper finished and back on Image Image mirrors back on.door handles too new gasket due to a slight leak Image.next job is front bumper.rocker covers powder coated.and new screws for the rocker covers.i had bolts on before and i believe theyre supposed to be screws .and i need to change the drivers door catch is not the same as the nearside one so its something else to change up shame really because when i find one il have to have it plated to match the other .might just leave it for the next owner whenever that would be. .ive set the timing with a timing light 14btdc and the car runs shite.pissed about for ages on and off.so i reverted to timing it by ear as ive done before and she now runs mint.tried running her at 10btdc and shite .havnt a clue what thats all about .Image im thinking she has a different cam in which alters the timing not sure .

Eyup .its been a while.thought id have a little tidy up of the underside ,all suspension ,roll bars ,fuel tank off and back on,.ive tidied all front and back suspension .the last thing to do was bleed the brakes and guess what the bloody brake master cylinder is goosed.so ive stripped it down and im waiting a seal kit.tut theres always a catch.
