KDF 831V Code Brown


Recommended Posts

Often she looks dark brown then the light changes and she’s Sandy 🤷‍♂️
 

I started with some easy jobs;

Headlights in,

Door handles and locks fitted (boot lock mislaid),

Rear lights,

Badges - so people know what it is 😂,

Bonnet struts and catch,

VIN plate,

Front and rear bumpers reassembled- the powder coating made them hard to reassemble,

Bumpers fitted.

i found that with mine too when it was hazel brown. the brochure pics look superb and potray it as a dark brown but in brighter sunlight the metallic is more apparent but the colour looks more goldy .similar story with lots of colours realy especialy metallics. and again even more so on some of the modern super  bright colours ,perlescent i beleive.

either way great cars anyway especially pre82 years and well ahead of their time in the day and hold there own nowadays in virtually all scenarios

To work on the car I need to push it outside and this isn’t possible with so much wet weather. So it’s been slow progress but I’ve managed a few jobs;

~ Front and side trim. Cill strip was damaged and needs repair or replacement so not fitted yet.

~ New door glass seals fitted.

~ Side vents on.

~ Wiper motor body powder coated and mechanism cleaned and painted and all fitted.

~ Petrol tank refurbished. Flushed internally, sprayed satin black externally, new hoses and clips.

~ Door check straps refurbished and refitted. (Not good).

~ Window runners installed. Top portion and wing mirror mounts powder coated.

~ Heater box modified to clear new transmission tunnel. I had to remove the front of the seem weld joining the two halves together. Luckily it’s a full penetration weld so not detrimental to the original heater box.

~ Brake servo and pedal box back in.

~ Sunroof completely dismantled and cleaned. I need to find a new seal if anyone knows a good supplier.

~ Roof aerial refurbed and refitted but still needs replacing as the base has a split in it 😬.

~ Washer jets and new hoses fitted.

~ Some interior temporarily fitted as I still need a black carpet.
