Done a bit of ripping the last few evenings, air con delete done, have all the bits there if anyone is looking for some parts.
Removed all the bits from under the dash also, not a nice job.
Just need to get rid of some of the wires and tidy it up a bit.
Ended up removing the water valve (3 water pipes coming from it that went into the heating radiator under the dash)
I picked up this rolling shell at the weekend for some spare parts, it’s a 323, engine, gearbox & interior removed but I got pretty much everything else.
Also got a very nice surprise from my much better half.
Went to superdrift in Tynagh early in September, good days craic. Car overheated a good bit, water pump eventually went about 2.30.
That’s been fixed and wiring the fan at the front to a switch so its running constant now so hopefully that helps a bit and hopefully no harm was done from the overheating.
Ripping away at the donor car whenever I get a few minutes;
Getting ready now for Tynagh at the end of the month again.
After that I plan to remove the glass, fit perspex, cut doors down, possibly cut up the boot floor, wheel spacers, front camber, M50 manifold & BBTB hopefully, well thats the plan, thinking about some street car drift comp’s next year hopefully.
95% sure fucking head gasket is gone, went out this evening, ran the car for bout twenty minutes to half hour at 2000 revs, whole system got pressurised, heat shot up to 3/4 mark, turned car off and you could hear the pressure hissing out of the rad and it was bulging! Also white smoke from exhaust…SHIT!
Finally I got an engine.
Not only did I get an engine, I also picked up M50 manifold, BBTD, e30 flywheel, clutch and starter.
When I was waiting to get an engine I done a bit more stripping.
More wiring gone, prick of a job.
Boot floor and doors cut out, all glass gone also, should have polycarbonate in soon.
Front stripped to put in new engine.
So gonna get the m20 flywheel lightened and get this back up and running with a new aluminium rad and fan. Can’t wait.
Got a few nice deliveries this week…
