Hi chris iv now got it running and got nearly all the electrics working just need to work on the brakes now as there seized up but should free off. im going to get an MOT on it and run it as iv always wanted one. I need to fit the lower front spoiler on and and paint it and will paint the rear valance and give the rear arches some attention as there is bit of corrosion as you can see on the pictures. The old guy I got it off bought it new and sprayed oil all over the underneath before parking it up, it looks **** but has saved it to be fair.

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.
