My '93 Mayfair is an unfinished project car I bought from a friend earlier this year.
It looks in pretty good nick, and has apparently had all the rust sorted out already (new inner and outer sills).
Here it is after we pushed it down the road and into my parents garage, please ignore the excessive number of bicycles...
So, lots to do, you might have noticed there is no engine under that bonnet.
I plan to strip it down to bare shell and have it professionally repainted inside and out. The old 1275 engine is resting up at the back of a mechanics workshop along with the brand new 1400 fast road engine which was bought to replace it.
Now the bad news... 1400cc is a bad idea as 74MM pistons leave no room for error... or metal between the cylinder wall and the oil ways. The hole in the block was enough to make the previous owner give up on the project for a few years, but I have a plan!
Take the old block, junk the rest of the old engine, get new (more reasonably sized) pistons and put all the lovely fast road bits together to make one complete working engine.
The next couple of updates will bring us up to where the project stands now.
