chris, just so happens i know someone that can weld! pmsl
lol, yeah i can weld! what do you need welding mate?
well all the bits you listed so far wont be a drama, i will pop round mate, just need to sneak off from doing work around the house!! lol maybe ill pop round on my way home from work sometime
At the mo mate I have a fog light less bumper, I did buy another one yesterday which hasn't arrived yet. I'l check it out when it comes to see which one i'l be using.
By the way how much?
Been playing again today I spent the day cleaning up the top half of the engine..
After that I carried on stripping the block. No pics as yet..
Good progress mate..
Why thank you. Although yesterday I lost a circlip from this
Then spent hrs looking for it, need to get some gaskets today and the clip, Inlet manifold plus 4 injector ones if there still available and one for the throttle body. I put it back together cos I know if I left it a while i'd forget, Hence im not to happy that my boy stripped the car down some months ago I prefer to strip refresh and put back together. I'v definately got my work cut out...
And i'l have to send the head off for a light skim cos the gasket is so stuck to it. the block will probably need the same and a pressure check. The pistons I may get machined to lower the compression.
