Cheers Guys :afro:

Well, a few teething troubles like the starter motor packing up and various exhaust rubbers deciding to relieve themselves from duty, all has been well......................sooooooooo

I wanted to move the washer bottle out of the engine bay, as it's a massive 4L bottle it took up quite a bit of room. As there was a redundant pipe from the original rear washer....it was a no-brainer as to where it could be put  :smiley:. I bought a smaller bottle for the relocation too.



This got me thinking about removing more from the engine bay so I made a false boot floor, removed some surplus items and fixed the floor down.



Ordered a battery securing tray that will be bolted into position with a sealed battery, also ordered a battery positive cable from an E36 BMW as they have the battery in the boot so should have enough spare  :wink:

Then I ripped the front bumper off for some fettling  :smiley:



Will update when I progress

Had a mate come round today whilst the sun was out and had some of the paintwork corrected  :smiley:









Pretty chuffed with the results  :cool:

Cheers bud :afro:

Finished the cover plate today for where the battery went. This covers all the wiring left behind and leaves all the original battery clamps in place.

A bit of polishing and cleaning up has started  :smiley:







Loads more to do but it's a start  :smiley:

Right, another update...

After the all-types show it went a bit pear shaped for the rado. It all started wen leaving the show where I left a lot of splitter near one of the speed bumps  :cry: . Struggling to find a good replacement, a friend showed me that you can get a cupra splitter to fit if you're patient enough so put one on for the time being...

Then a few days after, the hoses started either bursting or splitting, they were rotten, when you squeezed them, they split so I had to replace the lot  :rolleyes:

Also replaced the ignition coil, HT leads, Dizzy, as there was a bit of a misfire.
Then the clutch slave cylinder packed up on me, the seal split but fortunately, this only happened as I got back on the drive after being out. Had to replace the cylinder and reverse bleed the system which I would recommend for everyone to do. So simple  :cool:



Finally, I decided that the original power steering fluid reservoir was a bit too big so made a custom bracket in the shed  :smiley:



This allowed me to fit a reservoir from a Mk4 golf that I had lying around ( :shocked:) to tidy things up  :smiley:

Pics...

Cupra splitter fitted (at Tatton park)


Engine bay now  :smiley:


Crankcase breather made from a pit bike air filter  :wink:


And a closer look at the reservoir in it's new home.


That's it for now  :smiley:
