Rekord (2/8)



  1. Sure, the front looks to be exactly where it needs to be. I bought the springs described as the correct spec for the car.
  2. Hmm, I'm not sure, it might be part of the old petrol pipe? That was all replaced with copper pipes towards the end of putting it all back together. I've put the car up for sale on the owners club website now.
  3. Thank you. You could well be right. I reckon I'm about done spending money on this one.
  4. Thanks guys. It's been a long journey to get it this far. Expensive too as I've paid for all of the work to be done at a garage and a body shop. Getting the genuine parts were interesting, the inner wings being genuine GM parts from Greece!! The brief was to go through the whole car and remove any rust by either replacing the panels or replicate a replacement section. Once welded, each section was covered with a zinc spray to protect it from rusting again. Once it was resprayed the whole underside was pumped full of protective wax. I've included only a small fraction of photos of parts and sections that were replaced. I've ended up with over 600 photos over the whole restoration.
  5. Out and about in Dorset and 900 miles covered, nearly as good as I wanted it. Rear spoiler will need repainting as corners cracking. Rear suspension looks to be about 2" too high, stereo not operational and oil pressure gauge not working. Otherwise, it starts, drives, sounds and looks very, very good. It only took 5 years and £15.000!
  6. And finally back on the road!! She's back on the road at long last!!
  7. It now drives..... at last. Just a few finishing touches. Hopefully not long now!
