  1. Welcome to the club 👍
  2. Fantastic job, that’s probably better than it was new. 😎
  3. That’s interesting, did it start ok & feel fairly normal to drive?
  4. If the car has been sitting, it’s not much hassle & might help so I’d be apt to go over the electrical connections & squirt a little contact cleaner in the blue temp plug & insert & disconnect a couple of times. Same with the AFM plug. There’s an Earth on the rear of the inlet manifold that may benefit from a rub with 240emery too. There’s also ye olde air-leaks possibly that can throw the injection out too. Easy-start seems to be a favourite to help detect those.
  5. Yes there’s bonnet pins too but overall it’s a great survivor 👍

  7. I have a working spare AFM if you want to try that. Wonder if your injectors are slightly leaking or if the cold start one is playing up a bit. Are the plugs really sooted up?

  9. You can load this page in Google translate, it looks like 218 is Sapphire Blue https://www.opel-infos.de/codes/farben/farbcode.html
  10. Excellent! Good to hear it’s going to get sorted not broken 👍
  11. Looking forward to seeing more 😎
