Hi All

 

Small update I spent half of my Saturday cleaning up the bulkhead... It a lot of work !!!! 

 

Started out like this...

 

EDDFF5A1-95E5-4D91-95E3-3B9AA97442B1_zps

 

Rubberising Compound is a total disaster to remove even with this tool....

 

CB8B39A8-2FE3-4105-A3EA-18C6421CDD04_zps

 

But we got there.....

After doing both the sides I sprayed her up with some Primer...

I agree with you there - absolute pain of a job. At least yours has the front end off, I had to do it with fenders etc. still attached.

Zet, is there a specific reason why you cut the inner fenders off like a neanderthal?

 

Looks good in any case, I need to get one of those wire brush thingys. . .

O and by the way, very little rust there, bar the floors. Looks quite solid if I may say so.

Hi All

 

Its been a long while and allot has happened... with all the toys for Jim just laying around , I had the great idea of buying a development car to sort everything out before it gets put on Jim.

 

So everybody please meet Jim 0.5 .....

3B78A5B2-F2FC-4CCA-9C0B-9B5D97E4A7D2_zpsNow the fun begins......

 

1. Engine Swap...

 

Out with the old....

 

415FD78F-6E43-4A48-8CC9-601B6984EABE_zps

 

 

And in with the new ...(1380cc)

1966D24B-E903-4B54-BACB-9624E96D91B9_zps

 

Result ?

 

7278D1FA-272D-49F7-BE25-E56C1A0D880C_zps

 

Almost forgot the other toys...

 

3E5ED5F5-269E-4927-95B1-681A14AFD848_zps

 

And the new exhaust....

 

5426A1AA-556D-42E8-978B-B5554F1DEC4D_zps

 

She finally runs... (After an electrical, drive-shaft and Fueling problem. With help from Willy)

 

6D301268-C591-48C4-B5C4-22E2AA0EEB73_zps

 

I will be updating some of the more minor repairs done on Jim 0.5 as I get to them...

 

Cheers.
