Hey everyone..

Bought the car off Benny its been seen on here before, but it is now in my hands.

Future Plans:

So far I'm working on getting it running right, seems like it is blowing out smoke when you turn it over, then after awhile no smoke, so I'm thinking of a engine rebuild.

Main concern is getting my body work fixed up as you probably know the bonnet flew up at 120km/h(previous owner). So there is some paint missing and rust that needs cutting out.

Working on the front at the moment.

valve stem seals might be causing the engine to smoke on start up?

Clean the engine bay up abit to make it look a little tidier :-P

When you get a new bonnet or fix this one be sure to use bonnet pins lol, I have some here to go on my exa, Also i like how the bonnet is sitting higher, Might keep the engine temps down abit lower?

The reason its sitting higher is because the bonnet hinge is rooted and the bonnet is flexing and is farked.

This bonnet is coming off and a new one will be replacing it.

also the swing arms for the wipers don't like the hinges being the way it is either.

When you replace the bonnet, Stick some washers under where the bonnet goes into the bracket, Looks actually good, Might go see what it looks like on my exa :P

Nice, those guards look pretty tough over those wheels...

First thing you should do under the bonnet is the AFM relocation FTW.

Got lights on today.

have to rewire some ends up for left and right side intercaters and park lights and front bumper intercaters.

Going to get new bonnet hinges next friday, Has anyone else had troubles with loose hinges?

Also has anyone have a list of bolt sizes for the whole car?
