bin a busy bugga on me beloved toledo,
1stly ive more or less finished the wiring bar a switch or 2, so we manged to get power to the engine and went for a start up with sad results as the engine had no compression in the 1st 2 cylinders so instead of a pricey rebuild i was gunna replace but couuldnt find a rs engine in my price range so then i stumbled on an ad for a 2.3 galaxy engine(exactly the same block) 200 pound 2 my workshop door result, its far from a straight foward bolt in job, but more on that another time,
all doors bin stripped down for prepareing and 1 caused me a rite head ache but after watching a panel beater replace a door skin i was confident 2 chop the bottom rear door skin of and make a panel up stich welded and folded and impressd me self.
front suspension and wish bone fitted and sprayed even reused the polybushes as they were still in great condition, front shocks that came with her a fubar so for now i chopped 3 inches of the springs so shes rolling but im now after new ball joint covers each side ??? any ideas? and saveing for gaz coileys and green pads
made a battry box in the boot and a fuel tank in place, ive gone for an ax tank a, because i had it b it fitted str8 in cits not lgunna rot,
, also flushed the tailgate and fitted a popper to open the boot .
made me own sill covers after heating and folding metal over the good sill, had to do it in 2 pieces but its not turned out to bad, prepare the arches to be rolled as im having the wheels banded to 7 inch on the backs
propshaft im having made so waiting on funds for that, hand brake fitted and remote gearlinkage finished , now the cars being teared apart again for the wonders of body work and final welding,
still im always a believer in pixs
thanks for looking
