I have no idea if its an SD3 sorry.

Fixed the alternator with a bigger bolt and a nyloc nut, coolant was really low so filled and bled system, changed aim on windscreen washers, filled washer bottle and finally cleaned and fitted this!

Has everything in that "scrapyard" been there 100 years?

No idea what model it was, everything in this place is totally fucked , they only stuff maybe restorable is some bland 90s tat, so not worth it.
The owner was saying that the really old stuff in the bottom bit is due to be cleared very soon so he can remove his 'breakers' license

Getting up there, removing the engine and box and getting it out of the bog would be a real hassle i think

Away man! Judicious use of a tractor +loading forks and ratchet straps would see it hoiked oot in no time..

Likely need an ambulance on standby though:)

Removing its the easy bit! It should just pull out, youll take some of the bodywork with it though!

This is FOADS photo of it a couple of years ago, bit worse now.

Just before christmas the top hose connector on the e28 radiator snapped causing the hose to come off, i tried tightening it up but it wouldnt stay on.

After being let down numerous times trying to source a radiator and having to open a paypal dispute to get the the supplier to move his arse i finally received the radiator.

Looks almost identical i thought, turns out its 50mm taller than the original, ive had to cable tie it on as the mounting hole doesnt line up.

The bonnet just closes but its in and the e28 is usable again!

You can see the bit that snapped off, whilst on a test drive i spotted this,

16299466_778146499003436_389781305017864

 

Must have been down the drive for years, ive never seen it and ive lived here for years

Ive always wanted a 305, me and FOAD were talking and came to a deal and i waved goodbye to the sunny and ended up with this,

 

12748133_920191231422222_443576677814801

 

As comes standard with 305s the footwells were soaked and mouldy so the first port of call was get the interior out,

 

16712037_1140610902728240_90194602276337

 

Seats out,

Once the carpets and sound deadening were out it didnt look too bad, the carpet shout be savable but the sound deadening went in the bin.

The interior is now drying out nicely but no doubt will be wet once its out in the rain again, least it will be easier to mop up.

Im working through the MOT fail list, first thing was the drivers front hub had a snapped bolt in it, we previously tried to get it out but failed.

This is what i started with,

16807645_1144498592339471_31991781582311

 

I tried various drills and was getting nowhere until i grabbed a 9mm one and it finally chewed through it enough i could hammer out the remaining bolt. The thread isnt perfect but managed to get one of FOADS old c15 wheel bolt to fit nice and tight,

16831165_1144498625672801_36464207184721

 

Cant wait to bin the wheels as it looks so grim just now.

Ive also tried to get the wipers to work but got nowhere, only seem to be getting 1.5v to the wiper stalk.

In an effort to find out where water was coming into the car i started to investigate, Ever wish you didnt get into something.....

 

Errrmmm.......

The newer bits were added to keep strength in the door frame and will be replaced.

I never want to have to remove a 305 wing again, absolute pain in the arse being bolted AND glued.

It doesn't look amazing but it's solid and with the wing back in place no-one will ever know... Apart from you lot...

To be fair, that looks a pretty darn good repair. Looks mega solid on that corner now. Is this going to replace the 18, then?

The problem with it is the previous repair I did with the wing still in place looks like absolute shit but it was enough to keep the door from sagging. 

Instead of cutting it all out and starting again I just added more to it. The final result is not fucking pretty.

I wouldn't say that at all, once you slap some paint on it then it will look fine.

Big thanks to FOAD for the welding, it's going to take maybe a month or so to get it roadworthy but this was a big part of it.
The 18 will be for sale very shortly, due to a duff left knee I can't drive the 18 as the clutch is stiff.
I've been using the e28 as it's an auto till it gets a bit better.

Had a quick look at this today, it's looking much better having been painted by Nisfan the previous night.
