I can see this thread hasn't been posted on for nearly a year do you still own this Luke?? I saw it in Whitnash when walking my dog! I stopped and looked at it for a few moments, it's stunning. Nearly knocked the door of the house it was at haha

Hi mate. Yes it's still mine :)
I Was visiting a friend who's just moved into that house on the way back from edition

I haven't updated the thread much as I haven't really been doing much to it really. Just keeping it running and going for now. The buckets are no longer in it and I have a set of recaro's in there that I will eventually get re trimmed but that's all the changes it's had for now :)

been away for a while but heres what I'm up to.

So here is what Im up to. A cheap 24v AUM lump came up that I couldn't refuse. With Worthsee happening again this year.... why the f**k not ay?!



I initially was intending on starting the transplant around now, but i completely under estimated how much time these things take to do properly with added problems along the way. I actually started this 3week ago now and have spent most hours that ive been awake on it tackling all different parts of the car in a thorough sweep.



I'm not one for forums any more, so i'll keep this to the point!



Pre Op

[/URL]



Mid op plus a rear bearing swap out!













24 hours later And Post op. We made an attempt at lashing the loom together but it wouldn't start. little did we know we were just one switched live away at the time from being able to drive it away that night. annoying but still so much done in that time.



Once i had it back home me and mk1steve had another hash at the wiring loom and we got it started! After letting it idle for a little while a problem because quite apparent. The oil cooler was projectile vomiting oil and water out the front! All sorted now but it looks like during the initial push i had forgotten or net been able to tighten up the oil cooler nut fully. All sorted now!







After we got it started, i figured I should probably now sort this out. 28 years worth of people screwing around with the wiring. So its got from this:









To this:













Still a bit of a work in progress, I've got new underlay to go in, a few more bits of wiring to confirm...oh.. and these to go in. A fresh trim i've finally had done.
