    Sri130 saloon

    There is a genuine gm rear wing on ebay at the moment for £175, think they are quite a bit more from suppliers if you can find one. There is also a dealer on ebay selling pricey nos gm panels and i would imagine that repair sections are available. There are loads of guys on here that have done repairs to bodywork so advice will be available, including a current major restoration which will provide very valuable information on restoration etc. I bought mine in 1994 and spent a week plus cleaning checking and waxoyling everything removing everything including suspension ( this i still do every few years ) so body wise apart from a new rear wing in 1994 thanks to white van man, a complete external professional repaint last year and the usual small hole in drivers footwell thanks to me not realising the section was tripple skinned would be boring to anyone enjoying a project.

    Ah same model and colour as my 130, i just love Carmine red 130 saloons. Don,t know how many carmine red saloons are left. Have you got much paperwork with it? From the photos it does not look to bad at all. Whats it like mechanically and trim wise?

    Is that the one that was on ebay few days ago? Thought it looked good then.
  6. I had the same problem about 8 years ago on my 130, filter was blocked with what looked like slime but no rust. I managed to get a new one from our local Vauxhall dealer, washed tank out in situ with Meths fitted new filter and away it went.

    My first and only Cav which i still have is my Mk2 SRI 130 saloon in red. I was looking for a late spec Escort RS Turbo or Astra GTE 16V ,always liked the SRI / 130 saloons but gave up looking as even in 1994 there were many rusty and thrashed boy racer ones around. Found my ideal car and could not believe my luck when i saw it, mint, every bill including original receipt, brochures, low mileage, mature owner etc, love at first site ( dont tell the wife ) and i knew it was going to be a keeper. Paid £3495 cash for it, well pleased as i had a budget of 5K for a car
  8. That,s looking good everyone on the site likes to follow a project. When it is completed buy a ten or fifteen litres of Waxoyl and pump generous amounts into the box sections and underneath.
  9. That,s one fine looking motor a lot of time must have gone into making it look so good. I would think not many survive in Russia due to the bad weather, do they cover the roads with salt and grit like they do over here when we have frost or snow ? How is the parts availability in Russia ? Many parts are rare over here mainly trim etc and prices have risen the last few years, i would imagine that parts must be very hard for you to find and you probably have to buy from other countries.
  10. Thanks Neil.


  11. Just love 130 saloons makes me glad i have one every time i see another on the site. Must say i have never seen a black one before.

    Sal's Calibra

    Always liked the Calibra, have fond memories of being a passenger in a new Turbo driven by a then work colleague chasing and sticking with ease to a Sapphire Cosworth, happy days. If i remember he sold his Astra GTE 16V and had a large eye watering bank loan to buy it but it sure did shift.
  13. Will be down for one day possibly Saturday or Sunday minus the 130. I will wear a sticker saying neilsri130 so please approach me if you want a chat as i will not know by face a lot of members and i dont bite even if i am ugly :)
  14. Greetings to sunny Halifax and welcome to the site ( my ancestral family come from Halifax and Cornholme ) there is a load of useful information and experience on here probably covering all Cav issues and problems. I had my 130 saloon in 1994 as a daily whilst running various MG, Triumph TR and Sunbeam 2 seaters. Like you i decided on the 130 as a more modern classic although at that time most MK2 Cavs were still mostly cheap boy racer bangers or tradesmans working cars as in the case of estates.
  15. Hello Viktor and welcome to the site,must say your car looks very good. I did not know they were available in Russia.
