    My wife's Charade G10 project

    Last week, my wife and me went to the place where we stored the red G10 and she felt in love

    She want to restore him in the next 2 or 3 years, and we are pretty sure that this beauty will drive on austrian streets as soon as possible

    She is really really happy and looking forward to restoring this car








    Today our 3th G10 comes to Petra's G10







    This restore has to go on complete different to the restoration of the blue G10. So in this case we don't hava the garage space left to deassemle it complete and restore it part by part.

    We need if "moveable" between the restore steps, so I think we can do it in parts.

    I think that this is a good idea to build out the complete engine with gearbox and the complete drivetrain and tires incl. breakes, drivetrains and all other parts exept the steering system (only 2 screws to open) also incl. with the exhaust system till the gearshift, open also the gearshift as one unit with the engine/gearbox/drivetrain unit.

    This complete will be then build into the red G10 and connected and started

    After that we can restore the complete engine/gearbox/drivetrain unit as long as we need!

    Thats the plan....

    Here are today's pictures!

    Please hold in mind, all pictures are on ONE DAY (and only ONE person who worked on it)!!!





















    Second day...














    The red front right fender has 2 big dents and a rust hole, the blue one has only very small dint, so I changed it.

    Next weekend I change 3 doors (driver, co-driver and rear door co-drivers side).

    Belive it or not, THIS is (16 years old) fuel!!



    The color of this "fluid" is dark red and it smells like nothing else.

    I connect the engine complete electrical, build in the other steering box and connect also the carburator. Cooling liquid is also filled in. Still miss gearbox oil, igintion cables and a batterie..

    Anyone has remove same parts of this car within the last 16 years like the brake cylinder on the rear axle...

    On Sunday I will change also the fuel tank and maybe also the complete rear axle, the we make the first start try with fresh fuel.








    One of the last pictures of the golden one before it goes to his last travel on 16. September 2010 Thank you for sooo many parts

    Thanks a lot, but this is not (at this moment) a quality work, this is a quick repair to make it driveable. This cause why we need to move it to his winter sleep place.

    And since today she's alive
