Been a while so at least its a healthy update.
Not sure where to start, and I'll probably miss a fair bit out but here goes.
Sourced a replacement bonnet and wings that were in better condition than the originals and chucked them on around Christmas time. I'd had a couple of oil leaks since getting the car. One was from the oil cooler seal, the other from either the crank seal, or lower timing chain cover. Either way, it was a gearbox off job to sort. My rad then got a bit of battle damage thanks to a stone directly through the opening in the grille, and started pissing coolant all over the place. Having to take the front end off for that, I decided to pull the engine and get the leaks sorted, and replace/upgrade a few things along the way. Had a fair few bits powdercoated, vibratechnics mounts all round, new rad, various nuts and bolts, x-member bushes etc, expansion tank, clutch slave cylinder, various rad fan parts, injectors ultrasonically cleaned and refirbed, almost every seal and gasket, upper chain guide, and a general good tidy up.
I also bought a Furniture Clinic restoration kit, and got to work on the interior. If you look back to page 1, you'll see the state it was in originally! Can't remember if I mentioned it before, but I sourced a good used interior locally and used the passenger seat as a donor for the bolsters on my drivers side, then had new leather where there were rips, or cracking that I thought had gone too far. With the completion of work with the resto kit, it looks like new now!
I've just won a proper Storm factory painted grille which'll be going on as soon as it arrives, and I'll be getting a very nice bonus from work in the next month or so hopefully, so she'll be treated to a full respray, wheel refurb, and a ton of exterior trim items. Just need to source some roof gutter trims now as they're obsolete and like rocking horse shi ite.
