Wow been a while!

 

Okay so I start a new job in a few weeks and would love to be able to drive Jessie to the place...

 

Things needed now:

 

  1. Alternator
  2. Wiper Motor
  3. Headlights Adjusting
  4. Carb Tuning / Needle
  5. Exhaust Fettling
  6. Some metal patching
  7. MOT 

 

:-)

 

Had a tinker at the weekend and fixed the horn, put a new battery in fired her up, running a little flat but she's running, hence the carb tuning needed.... no charge from the alternator and no charge light, continuity from lamp to alternator though so must be another dud rectifier... that's 3 used alternators all dead, at least I am getting bloody fast at changing them.

 

What to do...

 

Once alternator and wiper motor are fixed I will take it to the body shop for a once over with a screwdriver and a welder before booking it into the MOT, also give it a lovely colour sanding and deep cleanse including steaming inside and engine bay.

well been really enjoying the weather and driving the car!! 

 

All the above have been fixed and flew through another MOT in January.

 

I have also put in some newish seats and am looking for a new rear seat to put in. 

 

not much really needs doing to the car at the moment though apart from servicing and tweaking. 

 

:-)
