After hearing the news about a Jag incoming something has to give and this is the one that pulled the short straw.

 

History, it is the one 320Touring purchased over the internet in the midlands and it had a knackered gearbox, that thread is here:

 

http://autoshite.com...ting-a-new-box/

 

It had a gearbox fitted and quite a few miles put on it. I had a shot of it one Wednesday evening at the monthly Scotoshite dinner and was impressed/terrified with it. Discussions were had and the MX5 left the fleet to The Moog and this arrived.

 

It was as described 'bloody fast' and I set about doing some of the necessary bits to it, these start here:

This is the car

Some bits were a little involved to change

IMG_20180321_110232.jpg

 

 

I will get some better* pictures probably tomorrow.

 

It is currently MOTed until the 23rd of June but a new MOT could be put in place a bit early. It currently has a decat fitted which will be an issue for the test but putting a bit of effort in should make it go through.

 

The rear tyres are good and the front are new Uniroyal rainsport 3's. 

The Auxiliary belt, tensioner and idler pulley have been done.

There is evidence of the belt and dephaser being done in the history but I haven't looked at the paperwork but that is a picture of the belt and dephaser on the car when I changed the engine mounts.

 

I am about £1200 in at this point and would like to see as much as possible back!

 

Any interest on here before I brave the public?

 

I will add the bits I remember when I do, things like it has Cruise control.

It isn't outside at the moment of I would have got the pictures already!

I think £20 a ticket for a Renault is a little* strong, and it is still a Renault with associated issues.

I was going to throw the idea at my "stupid idea pointer outer" and see what happened. My sphincter has just about recovered from when 320T let me drive his.

A really helpful* picture of the dash.

One of the thumb bits is a bit shabby.

 

IMG_20180503_150957.jpg

 

Other side is ok.

 

IMG_20180503_151000.jpg

 

Driver's seat bolster wear and split stitching on the base.

 

IMG_20180503_151019.jpg

 

Really comfy seats though.

 

IMG_20180503_151022.jpg

 

It didn't have anything in the rear when I got it as it had been stripped out for lightness. The seats and trim from Chuck's Clio were applied to make it usable.

Thumb bits can be repaired by replacing them with these:

Aye. Want. Sadly not convinced leaving it on the street on the other side of town is the best way to insure one of these for cheaps, and it sounds like Shitey Sport has started negotiations.

Messages have been exchanged, and it would appear that a logistics issue has been solved. Mr Tickman will no longer have to dread the thought of utilising public transport to make a trip south, and I may have ticked another box on my "cars to own" list.

 

Win-Win.
