Probably some of you will already have heard about my Clubby, it was my daily driver for a year and a half, starting off as a bog standard, original, pretty average looking 1098cc drum braked ideal-first-car car. It ended up as a 1275, Cooper S disc'ed, bucket seated, 18sec quarter running beastie of a motor. But it had its bad points, the paintwork was decidedly shoddy, the nasty bit being the lacquer on the bonnet and rear quarters deciding to peel off one day after it rained. It also had patches of red oxide (only small) where we'd scraped rust off the car, as it was only supposed to be a hack until the pick-up was done. The front end has also seen better days, with both wings having small dents, filler in one, and the front panel being rusty at the bottom, and both a panels starting to get tin worm. So before it got any worse I took it off the road about 2 weeks ago and bought a Polo as a winter car.
My intentions with the Clubby, are to get a new engine for it, replace all of the dodgy looking panels - these being front panel, both wings, both a panels, and the rear valence -, repair any bubbles of rust starting to form - slight bit on the o/s scuttle where it meets the wing, a bit around the front screen seal, and a tiny bit on the o/s rear window ledge -, and finally, to get it resprayed.
There might be some other things i'm going to do, but i'm going to need some advice and input from people to help me decide!
Here's a picture as it stands now:
