So with my engine being rebuilt, and horrible weather in this country I needed a run about.

Mate was selling this, and picked it up for 280, with couple months tax and one month MOT.
Only issue was rought running on start up, getting code for EGR, which I'll look into whn can be bothered, but cars runs perfectly after 2-=3 mins, so isnt really an issue.









First job on car, changed the fooked airbag
from this


to this

Which I had as spare from Dragons old car


Getting major condensation over night so chnaged pollen filter
Today I replaced pollen filter.




Then looked at why horn wasn't working, and found it was hard wired into this aftermarket thing, which promptly got binned. not need proper plug for the horn so I can plug it in.

probably wasnt helping...

Here's the mini loom created to go from the original two wire horn, to the two wire after market horn, simple right?

3 wires, yellow one connected to nothing either end, other two had chopped off wires coming out of them? wtf?




Oh, and washer pump wasn't spraying water either. Is had some how previously snapped in half tjhe hose, and had been bodged with some kind of hose bandage, which had them fell apart again.

Can't wait for the MOT

Airbox and new filter on

replacing cone filter

Then, it l;ooked like I didnt have an oinlet gasket. so took inlet off, and was half and old gasket, so scraped all that off, and fitted proper one. when putting back together, then stud sheered and mole grips luckily got that out.

Car also stinked inside, of damp (condensation issue) and of sex tbh. so bought new seats and gave it a hoover, much freshner now

Air leak fixed.

Got old snapped stud out. Went Vauxhall and they ordered wrong studs, but correct nuts.

Searched around for a thread that matches in garage: way to long and rusty.
Sawed bolt down to correct size. Got out the tap and dye set, and re-threaded it.
All is good now, and no more air leak.


Then removed drivers seat, swapped pre-tensioner onto
New seat and fitted and hovered under it. Much cleaner.
Then swapped rear bench over and cleaned all around there.

New seats have some dog hair on, but won't come off with hover, so
Will get a brush onto it. Whole car smells so much nicer though!

When's this one off to Tom's then? I can see you becoming a perfectionist with this one too if you're not careful!

I bought it with no intention of modifying just cleaning
Up really. Start job lot closer to home soon, so will be using for work and parking somewhere pretty local.
Don't want to have to worry about car park dings etc. just want it comfortable to be in, and wear work suit if needs be

This thread is becoming a perfect example of how many on here just look at the pics then post without reading any of the OP's text or anybody else's replies
