Restoration and Rebuild Project

Engine Out

The engine and gearbox have now been removed, steamed cleaned and stored away. We’ll look at those much later in the project, once the bodywork has been sorted out. We’re not expecting too many problems with the mechanics. And the remaining bits of external trim have also been removed aswell and I’ll be refurbishing, cleaning and/or replacing over the coming months.

A lot of the underseal plastered around the engine bay is still very sticky. This must have been applied quite recently.  We can also begin to see some of the holes and dodgy plates in the floor of the car aswell.
