New oil pump and windage tray fitted


Cut and re-positioned an alloy kr front water flange so that it would clear the carbs. Then had it tigged up

Underside of the car and rear wheel arches are now painted in por15. Will do the rest of the underside at a later date, maybe next winter.



Also sorted the fuel filler hole before refitting the rear coilovers and exhaust back box.




While its been raining, i got my VR front brakes painted and also set about repairing the Black corrado fronts seats.

Sorted the Drivers by replacing the back part as the tilt lever was broken then used the Foam from a passenger seat to sort the bolsters out. The original black material was fine so they are both in good shape now.

Rado seats have extra plates on the rear subframe legs which tend to catch the carpet on mk1's so i set about removing them. Was at this time that i looked at chopping more metal out that was not actually needed.

Original rado subframe


And what i did


I actually weighed them and have managed to lose just under 1kg per subframe. Could've been more but my local DIY store did'nt have any Metal hole saws in stock.

Gave them a damn good hoovering(dog hair) and a clean with autoglym upholstery cleaner. Could do witha wet vac to make better though.

Now fitted after i totally hoovered the car out of all the crap thats been flying about since i took it of the road.

Fuel filler neck is now on so underside is now sorted for time being.

Other than me fitting the new front brakes and refitting the rear lights, technical it'll be ready for an MOT Smile

Finished work at 5 so i thought i'd make a start on the brakes while it was still light.

All was going well til the copper brake line on the passenger side twisted so i'll need to knock up another. No biggy really

I then refit the wheel to find that it rubs on the VR/G60 caliper bash Looks like it could be the stainless BBS RM bolts as they are slightly longer than original OZ turbo bolts.

Dont fancy running spacers on the front so it looks like i going to order a stack of dremel cutting disc's and trim down the bolts in the back of the front wheels Twisted Evil
