  1. Hi everyone, back in the club after few years absence... Just got the car MOT'd yesterday after being parked up in the garage for a year...Unfortunately no shows to go to here in Ireland as I'm sure is the same with you, but hopefully next year will be different.. fingers crossed. Anyway hope everyone keeping safe more importantly.

  2. Well I'm back! Thanks Jess, we had fun and stayed save. When we arrived in the south of France we hardly noticed anything of Corona. The region we stayed was as big as Northern Ireland and they had 3 people that died, senior ones. We went for long trips by foot under a hot sun, and found out how French people repair a worn oil sealing ring: The sharp eye can find the solution! And a car broke down, overheated and I used my professional tow bar to bring it back. But when I poured water into the cooling system it ran as fast out of the spark plug holes😁! After dismantling the head the wet liners' gaskets and the head gaskets were all gone😢. So the owner and me decided we had to change the engine, also cause the oil sump was rusted that bad I could push a screwdriver into it. Engine out: And 2hand engine in, I used some imagination to lift it: Gave the local Safari beige Rocky jeep also an oil & filter gange so everybody was happy: About my GSI: Still waiting for the numberplates😬... But while I'm waiting I can search this forum with all those new things you all did, Grts, Herman

  6. That is nearly the same for 1 panel mate as they charge £12 delivery. See if I can find an eBay discount code for you.

  17. Just had a look at the add on facebook it looks a nice example, very original apart from probably had a respray as back panel should be black. Swan neck has a previously welded patch but pics from underside indicate its solid. I reckon it was put away 27 years ago in V good condition & has been stored in a dry garage. will need a recommission, new MOT & new airfilter box. Interior looks in good nick Best colour imo Sapphire Blue. I think £2500 is a fair price considering it could be worth up to £5000 once cleaned & recommissioned. Located at Winchcombe Gloucestershire right by the Steam Railway. https://www.gwsr.com/

  18. Next bit of the puzzle is sump. Whilst I am now considering dry sump setup for the big power unit Saab 2.3L unit, I have already set on a path for solving the sump issue. Metal RWD sump Saab sump flange. The pickup pipe is incorporated into the sump in the SAAB unit, so it will be on this conversion part too. So a bit of fabricating to do.

  19. A little bit of progress today. Thanks to Herman's excellent guide, and to Scott for sending me two bulb holders (even when I only needed one ), I managed to adapt the Drivers side reflector to a working fog lamp. I am just waiting for a fused relay to arrive, then I can tidy up the wiring properly and push the switch back in the dash etc. Thanks once again to Scott and Herman!
