well i decided to do a bit of tarting up today, had to go get a load of spray paint lol

first off i decided to whip the front bumper and O/S wheel arch trim and inner arch liner out to inspect any rust damage this is what i found





so thought ok not to bad, need to take the car round to my dads as he's rater good at doing any filling and spraying so going to get him to do it. i got a quote of tom at lemass and altho its a good quote for the amount of work needed, i still dont have a job so got to do it on a shoe string budget.

so finaly the car loked like this



and the front bumper lkes like this



needs 1 more coat and it will be finnished

Little update

well after finnishing the front bumper to an acceptable level (needs to be done profeshonaly but it dont look to bad) this is how she looks



so cracked on with a little rust fixing.. some k rust and a few coats of prmer later we have this




this is the mess that is the O/S/F arch.. needs taking off so that my dad can do the repair properly but as he's very very ill atm he aint able to do jack. so this is how its got to stay till he's better



remember i sprayed the front bumper.. well i did it to the front arch trims aswell.. not 100% but a lot better than before atleats they are a uniform black now..



then i found a bit on the bottom of the OSR door that is annoying the hell out of me... i tryed fixing some rust but used thee wrong paint and didnt do it properly so my dads got to do this aswell



and finaly what do you do to your misses when she's sat doing bugger all....

you get her cleaning the interior of your car lol

well i found some more time to do things for the car...

after sorting out the front arch trims the other week i bonded the NS to the wing... looks good but its the rust on the bottom of the OS wing thats bugging the crap out of me sooooo

off to the scrappy i went

went orrigenaly to pick up 2 rear arch trims but i found a really good condishen white 3dr... so thoght ah fuck it wings are really clean and not rusted to buggery so whipped them off and had them aswell.. and also found a fare few corsa's with black interior plastics so going to go back and find them again when i have a job and can afford a dash and trim bits

so todays exploits are

N/S/F wing
O/S/F wing
N/S/R arch trim
O/S/R arch trim
N/S/R door seal

all for 20

was going to grab a bonnet i found there aswel but throught further inspection there was far to much rust and it was showing on the edges of the bonet... so going to keep hunting for one of them oh and a N/S/F door as the one i have on ther was off a combi van and has been re skinned at one point and doesnt sit right..

will get pics up of wings and arche trims all back on when i get a spare 5 minuits to actualy do it tomorrow

some of my unfortunatly damaged interior trim






were did you get the carbon bits from m8?
Then i looked under the bonnet as i saw a little smoke coming from under there.. wasnt to happy when i found a little oil leak so needs a new cam cover and a good clean.




also just got the road tax today so waiting on the disk to turn up so i can then book it in at Lemass and have the boot welded and then its drivable again

what you lot think? i know the rear bumper is a little higher on one side but come on the bugger was written off and i've fixed it with a hamer and a lot of patience

Well today was fun.. Got over to vaux and picked up my speedo cable, got to my raisents and realised that the sodding thing comes in 2 halfs and i could have saved money.. So went about fitting it.. Oh the fun i had when it would only go in 2 few mm so thought ok the speedo drive is full of crap.. Nope its full off the rest of the old cable all of 5 to 6mm of solid metal bloody car.. So speedo drive came out and so did the picks, half hour later still not working so a quick call to vauxhall.. 1 speedo drive will be 50.19p sir, yeah like Fuck, so grabbed my dad's drill and decided in going to have to drill the fucker out, hour later i finaly get a result as the speedo drive is finaly clear of all the crap so happy days, stuck it all back together and its all working ace now, pretty good really as i got a phone call a few hours ago from my mate who's had some bad luck, tools have been nicked from work and his aunt has died, and his car has been smashed up all within a day of each other.. So going to see him and make sure he's ok.

ok cars driving me nuts now..

drove it down the shops yesterday to put some money on my oister card, that was all fine..

i pulled out of the car park and started off up the road, then bang felt like i had stuck the car in 1st when i was doing 30mph rev's shot up car made a nasty banging noise, and the speedo stopped working...

so thought oh fuck sake whats gone wrong now, got back home and it was driving all ok after its little piss about,

so had to take it over to my dad's today to check out whats wrong with it, car decided it wanted to cut out every time you came to a set of traffic lights (its a cable driven speedo) and now its ideling at 500rpm and missing slitghtly and hunting aswell. its over fueling like a bitch and is killing the cat which isnt good..

so anyway got it to my dad's place and wipped out the batery so i could get to the speedo drive, took off the speedo cable and guess what... the bloody speedo cable has snaped off inside the speedo drive again, the damn things only a few weeks old, so i need a new one, and then i can fin out why the cars running like a sack of shit aswell im not a happy person at the moment
