Car runs, stops, drives etc. Gearbox is good, clutch feels pretty good, I'm getting tyres fitted for the cf48s tomorrow.. close to having a windscreen back in it!

Here's some shitty videos for proof:

Today worked out pretty well and got a bunch of stuff ticked off the list. Originally wasn't going to do much today but I'm glad that I did ! I didn't really have a plan of attack for today just started pottering around and putting a few bits back together, trim and things like that to get them out of the storage.

Image
Decided the carpet wasn't in too bad condition so gave it a vacuum and put back in the car after giving the car a thorough vacuum as well. It was filthy inside !

Image
The carpet makes such a huge difference.

Image
Looking pretty complete in there now.

Image
Thought I'd do some rust treatment so scuffed this patch down with wire brush/sandpaper and primed over it to stop more problems. Temporary measure.

Image
For this one I ended up getting rust treatment spray and priming over as well. Will fill the hole and repair it in near future.

Image
Not too sure if this it the correct placement for this bar. Yes it is an AT/AS rear strut bar from Cusco so it is not an incorrect item.

Image
I'm guessing drill some holes here and mount on top of wheel well.. ?

Image
Dat auto to manual conversion from back in the day haha

Very close to getting windscreen in it; get my wheels/tyres back tomorrow so once those are on can get the windscreen stuff going.

Ticked a few more things off the list today, wheels all on and looking good!
Image

Also wired up the high stop and got all the rest of the lights working as well as the horn, stoked!

Image
Bit of creative wiring to get the high stop back online.

Image
Image
Was on the fence about it but decided I'd put back the rear interior as well. Started with the sides this evening after I'd done the wiring.. will give the back seat a quick clean up and put all that back in another day.

Image
Image
I also had a cancelled order for a Hako-type chin spoiler so had a play haha.. I think the Volvo lip will stay..

Now I just need to figure out why the wipers aren't working at all (front or rear).. fuses are all ok (after I added more and checked them) so next step is to check the stalk.

Oh, what's this..
Image

Image

15x6 Watanabe! Offset unknown.. no marking on it at all about offset which is odd but they sit pretty much spot on, stoked as.

Another cracking day yesterday so had a look at the wiper situation. For whatever reason the fuse was blown for front wipers so I replaced that and they started to work :D Rear.. I couldn't figure it out so just removed it haha. Also fitted the Watanabes all around and took a couple of better photos

Image
Filled rear with this rubber bung I had laying around.

Image
Image
A couple of better photos of wheels fitted up.

Image
Not long ago I bought some shocks off a friend but never took a photo.. the fronts have been grooved so I can run them lower.

Image
How can I adjust so my door shuts properly? This is at full shut.. is there a way you can move the latch or something like that ?

Little bit of percussive maintenance and the door shuts properly now :)

Welll today has been a good day ! After the initial miscommunication from Windscreen installer and myself.. we got there in the end, car has a windscreen !

Image
I even assisted with installation.. basically pro windscreen installer now..

Image
Token petrol station shot.

So now I will put back the rear interior and fix up the rust on hatch and take it for a WOF to see what happens.. !

So you know that bit of duct tape I have on the rear hatch.. well I decided to see what's really underneath..

Image
Yeah so that's underneath.. I knew there was some repair done in the past but didn't know the hatch was so bad !

Image
Image
So.. I set about removing the crap that was on there and repairing it again myself.. a bit of 10 year old bog and some time and it didn't turn out too bad..

Image
Image
Definitely not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but it's a darn sight better than it was! It'll do for now anyway.

Also was looking to install my Cheddas short shift but it looked like it was going to be a hard job and I couldn't find my circlip pliers.. maybe next time !

Almost ready for WOF now, took it for a bit of a spirited drive around the area/closed road/race track and have determined grinding noise from front brakes will not pass WOF.. time to get new rotors and pads haha. Otherwise she's a minta (ish).

Image

I gave it a wash this afternoon as it was a really nice day and found really only a couple of places that are leaking water. One in the passenger side door seal area, not very much which is good; but the other problem is the rear middle bit between the tail lights. I ended up poorly siliconing the top bit which was coming apart by the look of it and did some strategic drilling; should suffice for now. Would also explain why one of the reverse lights was failing!

Image
Finished putting in the rear interior again over the course of the week; much more complete now. Also gave the interior panels a wipe down and the roof etc, get rid of some of the leftover dust and mould.

Image
Bit of overspray from working on some surface rust near the top of the windscreen.. whoops haha

Engine runs pretty well, takes a few cranks at first start to get the fuel going but otherwise works all good after that. I found it seems to start to have a bit of a flat area around 5.5krpm onwards.. perhaps needs some VTEC! Or an oil change..
