I got my p6 through it's mot by covering all the rough edges and holes in the wing with gaffa tape.

I did that with the 1850's bulkhead for a few years... The bottom edge of the rear wing and front of the arch has completely gone on the 1300's passenger side though, due to previous crap repairs (a repair panel riveted on top of the originals), the whole lot has rotted from the inside out.

 

I taped it up for a start but there isn't much left to tape up!

The large "full arch" panels like the ones that have been applied badly are now unobtanium although you can get repair panels from the TDC. I'd need panels A and W and that's £100 per side in metalwork alone, also part A is massive overkill as aside from the arch the rest of the lower rear wings are really solid on my car*. Given the current arch is made of rust and major levels of wob to hide the seam twixt the original panels and repair panels and it's not structural I don't feel too guilty about just fiberglassing the whole lot up until I can afford proper metalwork, especially as I have no intention of ever parting with the stupid heap...

 

*Also I let my membership lapse, because poor.

You can't beat a bit of tape on sharp edges, even for cars on their first test.

Welp, the Doloshite is dead. I just can't get the damn thing to start, endless fiddling with electrics, ignition timing, fuel supply etc has been to no avail. She'll occasionally cough a bit and that's about as much as I could get our of her, last thing is to try with some fresh fuel just in case the stuff I'm using has gone stale...

Unfortunately I've also moved house now so the car is living in a rented garage 200 mile north of my home. I've shifted the rental of the garage to a rolling month contract so as long as I pay up I'll have storage but the logistics are now problematic.

While moving house I found 2000 miles worth of old oil cans in the shed from back when she was the daily driver... £25 a week in 20/50w mineral oil, living the dream.

Naturally the Civic is also broken, one rear brake is stuck on and attempting to remove the caliper resulted in a bolt rounding and I ran out of time to get it sorted due to the house move. I did manage to free it off a bit when attempting the removal but over the course of the trip to Glasgow it started to stick again and now makes fairly horrible noises and generates considerable heat. It did piss it down for most of the trip which must have a had a cooling effect though, the time I spent stationary in traffic probably also helped...

I'm probably going to farm this job out to a local garage and then sell the damn thing... Also the front spoiler scrubs on the pavement outside my flat, bah.

On a lighter note here is some shite I saw on my last few days in Aberdeenshire:

Jesus, look at this sexy thing.

 

To think a car of such provenance could be so reasonably priced! Also counts as donating to a charity as hear it's the last possession of value the owner has to sell before he becomes homeless!
