    nice looking cav...I do like that grille... it's the same as the Ascona GT one isn't it? Is it specific to the CD?

    Cheers for that the only scrap yard that I know of which has a lot of old school stuff is Albert Looms in Derby he's the last of the proper scrap yards. going to buff up the other side today and finish cleaning up.
  9. Part of the problem is that it is a midspec which are generally worth less than the early/late cars. This is especially true of the interiors which in that condition, as an SRi, would be worth hundreds as early or late. As it is I really don't know. The body shell and running gear is probably pretty shot. The engine and gearbox should be good. But these are rare now and should really be saved. But. The only way that this makes any sense is for someone who knows what they are doing to buy it and put hundreds of uncosted hours into it along with a few hundreds of £ in parts. It really needs someone who knows to look at it. Where in the country are you?
  10. If it's terminally rusty is it worth buying as a parts car?
  11. This is why I don't want to pay over the odds for it so need some help on valuing it.
  12. Are you any good at welding or have a friend who is? Followed by a painter. There is a lot of work in that car.
  13. Some pictures of the SRI
  14. Steel wheels with trims.
  15. OK mid spec. Alloy or steel wheels with trims?
  16. Seats are light grey with dark stripes in middle.
  17. OK that's post the factory shutdown summer 85. Do the seats have stripes up the middle or are they one colour with a Recaro badge at the top? Just trying to identify if it is last knockings of early spec or mid spec. The rust is probably assisted by water splash from the ground if it was in the open, so all around its outer circumference could be gone. Then depending on leaves in the drains at the base of the screen (under the bonnet) there could have been water ingress to the cabin via the heater hole. The front of the level parts of the front footwells are often rust traps lurking under perfect carpets (its the foam underneath that's the culprit).

    Good luck with the scrap yards, when i had the 130 years ago MK2 Cavs were piled high in scrap yards even some 130,s so i took advantage and collected loads of parts many as cheap as chips. Last time i saw a MK2 1.6 in a scrappy was about 5 years ago.

    Nice one iv just had a look in my manual now and can see the picture its about the only thing missing from the car the owner took them out and cant remember where he put them. I feel a need to start hitting the scrap yards again lol.

    I have just looked in an early Haynes manual covering the 1.3, 1.6 and 1.8 and the picture shows a jack, a screwdriver and a wheel brace. In later models including 2.0 variants the above i assume also applies as my kit which was untouched when i had the car.

    sorry, no pic, but it could house the spare bulb kit, then screwdriver, jack&brace.
  24. Has it got a red or a silver stripe in the bumpers?

    Getting there slowly engine side now sorted new timing belt, dizzy, plugs, leads, fuel filter, oil change and air filter. Then sorted out brakes all seized solid so new front discs, pads and flexi pipes plus a full strip down and re build of the calipers new rear cylinders, shoes and fitting kit and to top it all off new brake master cylinder too the fluid was almost black in colour. Also changed most of the fuel pipes too as they were all leaking the cost of being sat over a decade lol. Repaired a **** load of wiring too but now every button now works as it should and also a full wet vac of the interior which was very dirty. so now onto the paintwork which has'nt seen polish for nearly 15 years. Il try and bang up some more pictures.
  27. Thanks neilsri130 I have now been informed the car in question hasn't been started in 20 years although has been pushed around on drive when its needed to be moved. The car is totally original and complete however I can see and have been told it has rust on arches and sills. Not sure on what offer to put forward for something like this and buyer also has no price so will have to check it over and then have a think on price. Wish me luck 😀
