    Landy Mann reacted to carlo in Picasso restoration.......a tale of idiocy and citroen fun   
    As promised I am going to hijack your thread with my own new Picasso, probably start a thread on it shortly.  A 2.0 automatic Exclusive in remarkable condition for the money.  Drives really well, initial problems seem to be confined to slightly grabby brakes and inoperative air con, hopefully that's not going to be too expensive as a car without air con is about as much use to me as one without wheels.
    Goes like the clappers too.

    That reminds me of a thread I used to dip into on RR years ago. A disabled lad was very slowly tarting up his Neon, but didn't really seem to make much headway despite his efforts. 
    Edit: Turns out he dropped a 3.3L V6 into it, but doesn't actually appear to have finished it yet, eight years later...

    Here's the sales photos, as I'm lazy:
     

     

     

     

     
    Handily, it possesses 4 sides outside. A good tip to look out for when buying.
     
     

     

     
    I find doors quite useful, too. There's 2 others on the opposite side.
     

    Amid the curiously presentable engine room hole is an engine. VVT-i is Toyota-speak for VTEC KICKED IN, Y0.
     

    Interior is resplendent in blue and grime.
     

     

    Despite being of Japanese origin, the roof has proven its credentials for NZ citizenship, by ridding itself of much of its lacquer.
     

    Boot space is deceptively crap. However, it's very convenient if you're placing a small, very heavy item in it, as the floor is so high, so swings and roundabouts.
     
     
    Here's why it's so high, though:

    To leave space for the AWD system! That's right, it's a manual, AWD Yaris (well, Vitz), seemingly only a thing in the first generations. Later models were sold with AWD but with an auto 'box and switchable AWD. I believe this is permanently engaged, though have yet to test it out off the tarmac to confirm.
     
    Details on this are pretty minimal online - it was a Japanes domestic market model only and other than a couple of mentions on forums and some foreign Youtube videos showing them not really getting up to anything impressive, I'm all of a blank. What I will say though is that in actual fact, there's a relatively straight car hiding under some rectifiable cosmetic issues and although I technically own a 4x4, it's been 'off road' for years; way before I bough it. 
     
    The main reason for buying it was to get us to the ski fields; with Covid being a thing, there's far fewer buses shuttling up and down, as it was predicted we'd be on our arse about now. Fortunately, we're 83 days free of Coronavirus in the community but there's next to no overseas tourists, due to our locked borders. All we need is something to biff the skis in the back of and traverse a few kilometers of potentially icy roads, so there was no need to buy some lumbering great off roader, when this will be buttons to run in comparison. As it's a 2000, it has yearly warrants (MOTs) instead of pre-2000 cars, which are every 6 months. Plus, it'll be great as a loaner car to overseas visitors, when they're finally allowed back.
     
    Most crucially of all, it fits on the driveway! But that's not to say that a cull isn't in order.....

    In the 4 years I've had / known the Rover 25 gti there's been this type of button on the centre console

    I've seen it, pressed it, it does nothing, I forget about it.
    Changed the alternator a couple of weeks back and when I removed the belt I saw it had an aircon pump!!!  Mentioned it to a mate who's borrowed it in the past and he gave me a can of gas for it today, so I bunged it in and it only bloody works.  I seriously don't know how I've never noticed it before or even cared enough to find out what that button was meant to do, but it blows icy cold now, result.

    So, as I said in the News24 thread a new purchase has been agreed. The plan was, and still is for an Opel Manta to replace the Locost. Because of my hatred for welding and rusty bodywork/dodgy”restorations” the goal is to go to the continent and rescue a Manta coupe of some sort, spec unimportant, ideally white and solid. Obviously that’s not happening this year though so it can wait.
    Meanwhile since getting a dog a couple of years ago I’d walked past a very unloved looking Jaguar XJ6 whilst walking round the village. Speaking to a chap  knew who stayed next door I was told the chap was getting on and couldn’t look after it. Oh and there’s another one in the garage!
    I kept in touch but other things distracted me. I was desperate to know what was in the garage though!
    Things finally aligned so I went along on Saturday for a look.
    First the X300.

    This has sat outside since getting driven home from its last MOT 3 years ago. It has been started regulary though and ran and sounded fine when I was there. Sitting outside hasn’t been kind to the paint though-lots of lacquer peel and some crustiness appearing round the arches. The interior was lovely though and it seemed willing to live again. Plan is to get it home this weekend, give it a damn good clean and check the obvious stuff and chuck it in for an MOT.
    Underside. Hmm. We'll see. I'm not touching it til the tester has had a prod. It seemed solid from the rusty bits i prodded though. it has been welded before according to the MOT history which may be ominous

     
     
    Then it was time to see what was lurking inside the garage...
    Oooh

    Oooooh! Hello!


    TWR steering wheel, because Racecar. Or because the previous owner specced it for better access apparently....

    Steel wheels and trims FTW!

     
    This was apparently parked up 18 years ago after developing a leak from the transmission cooler. Although the chap told me he'd bypassed the cooler with a rubber pipe. Apparently on around 70k miles. 
    So, there we are. Plan is to get the X300 home soon and clean it up. Then we'll see what the MOT man has to say before I spend any money on it. Hopefully it can see the road again though. It'll hopefully get sold on once i've smoked around in it a bit and got it working properly to allow me to devote my attention to the XJ40-that's the one I really want to see alive again. I've said I'd split any profits from it with the owner as part of the deal.
    The XJ40 i'll need to go into full resuscitation mode-drain fuel, oil down bores, new battery etc and see if it'll start. Ideally I'd do that where it is and drive it the half mile home home but that might* be ambitious.

    I bought my first house on Monday! After 15 years of renting a dismal variety of hovels, and spending the last 7 months with my well meaning but very OCD in-laws we got the keys to the new place last monday.
    Cue 2 days of moving all of my worldly posessions in, sorting it all then compiling a lengthy list of all the things we need to buy (washing line, dining chairs, microwave etc) to fill in the gaps. However, most importantly, this

    As well as a drive that will fit 3 cars on easily, I have my very own double garage! Its currently filled with about a million cardboard boxes and all sorts of moving tat and needs a good sort out, but this is literally the main reason I bought this place (as well as to house my family) - its exactly what I wanted. The days of tinkering with cars on a sloping drive in either the baking sun or pissing rain are gone. I have celebrated by buying myself a halfords tool cab and top box, 2 bigdug workbenches to go where the rickety shelving unit in the back right of the garage are currently, a nice new SGS alu trolley jack, and the @Skizzer-lift from CJ autos to properly kit it out.
    The kids are still asleep and I've actually got a bit of time to type this up before I hit up screwfix for a load of DIY stuff, the shops for a food shop that will make the EU stockpiled meat and grain mountains look like molehills and then argos for a bedframe for my eldest as the crack-den 'mattress on the floor surrounded by piles of toys and clothes' look isn't in vogue any more I'm told.
    Now I just have to pay for it all for the next 30 years...

    You're not wrong there. The issue I'm coming across is that the systems are all designed to be assembled quickly on a production line, it's all very modular and clever, but the modules are all a bit too integrated with eachother to really repurpose without going a bit too far modifying them. Thankfully my aspie brain is quite good at churning over problems as a background task so I can think over the system while I'm going about other things.
    I have to admit I started to go down the M-HDI route in my head, as in replacing the common rail system with a mechanical Bosch pump. Alas that'd get rather expensive and complicated for what's meant to be a cheap way to stuff more go into an old car.
    I'm reading The Truth by Terry Pratchett right now, there's a moment of realisation the main character has that he's doing things because they're the things he's ended up doing. Young men in sheds have shaped the world more than any king or ruler ever could. I had a point, but I forgot it. Oh well.

    During the "ye shall not leave home" weeks of late I had a bit of a revelation. Myself  and I were not really becoming one with the Citroen BX19 GT I had bought late last year. It needed quite a lot of small jobs done on it that I did not feel competent to carry out, so of course bought another car.
    This time I opted for an old giffers car to suit a 72 yo to get to the supermarket once a week. So I bought a 2001 Nissan Maxima with a lovely 3 litre V6 to tootle along in. It was a bit used and had had a young lady driver who was not always bothered if she hit something. It had also done 254000KM. Of course bought sight unseen ! The price was right too.
    Next problem. It was 200 km away , and as lockdown rules said "NO UNNECESSARY TRAVEL OR JAIL may happen" . So waited a couple of weeks and rules were a bit relaxed but still no unnecessary travel. Then rang Jon of this parish to go get it, but he had other commitments and could not go, My neighbour said he would love a good long trip so on Friday morning we set off, knowing that we could be stopped at any time.
    Passed a few Police vehicles on the way but they had no interest in us,  Roads were nearly completely empty so had a good run from Tokoroa to Thames up the Thames Valley. Then across the Coromandel Peninsular to the town of Tairua. 
    And there was the Maxima, just as described . It had been sitting for weeks under a tree so was a bit messy (birds etc)  Met the seller and went to the car which started instantly and settled down to an almost silent idle.  Then we were away, all of 300 metres to the gas station shot as empty is not a good start for a long trip. Then away, up into the steep winding road back to Thames, no rattles or creaks and groans, no noise from suspension and the temp gauge sat rock steady. Engine ran perfectly and had plenty of power and the auto transmission worked exactly as it should.
    At Thames we turned left and headed for Paeroa to sample their McDonalds. Cheeseburger, fries and some Lemon and Paeroa to drink and we were away again to Te Aroha, Matamata-(Hobbiton) and then toTokoroa.  The Maxima proved to be a very good car, Cruise control and a/c were both working well so the me is very pleased .
    The Citroen took 2 days to sell and will be collected next weekend.

    Landy Mann reacted to Slowsilver in Early Mondeo Saloon Saved From The Scrapman.   
    For as long as I can remember I have been aware of a dead K-prefix Mondeo saloon languishing on the drive of a house about two streets away from here. It had obviously been sat there for many years without moving. I kept meaning to drop a note through the door enquiring about it, but as always I never got round to it.
    Until now.
    With Bob the Renault 6 currently on hold pending a possible sale after lockdown and the Maxi mothballed due to lack of places to take it to I was getting bored, so last Friday I did just that. Things moved on very rapidly from there.
    Timeline: Saturday morning.
    I received a phone call  from the owner's daughter, who informed me that her father had owned the car since it was 18 months old and cherished it for years, doing about 2 or 3 thousand miles a year in it until 2013, when it failed the MoT:
    Date tested 17 September 2013
    Fail
    Mileage 70,926 miles
    Reason(s) for failure
    Service brake: efficiency below requirements (3.7.B.7) Brakes imbalanced across an axle (3.7.B.5b) He was told by the local garage he used that it would cost about £1000 to fix even if they could get the parts, which they said was doubtful. How can inefficient and unbalanced rear brakes cost that much to fix? And can Mondeo parts be unobtainium already? Maybe I will find out in due course.
    Anyway, he decided that was more than the car was worth but, being very attached to it, he simply parked it on the drive and left it there.
    Apparently he died about 3 years ago but his wife couldn't bear to see it go, so there it stayed until now.
    Coincidentally his wife died a few weeks ago, so I hope my approach didn't seem like grave robbing. Their daughter was planning to have the car taken away for scrap, so I was intending to offer her scrap value for it and see if it could be saved. However, she was so pleased at the prospect of her dad's beloved motor being revived that, without me making an offer, she immediately offered it to me for the princely sum of zero pounds. She also agreed that quicksilver and myself could work on it where it sat until such time as we could move it. She said that she would endeavour to find the V5 and the keys.
    Timeline: Saturday afternoon.
    Checking the registration online showed it to be a 2.0i Ghia, built in Belgium in May 1993 and registered in the UK on 15th June 1993. K prefix registrations ran from August 1992 to July 1993 but the Mondeo was not launched in the UK until 22nd March 1993, so had been in production less than three months, making this a very early Mark 1. Has been on SORN since September 2013.
    Let's go and see what we have.
    It's walking distance so that counts as exercise doesn't it ?.
    Didn't even know if it was a manual or an automatic. Turns out it's a 5-speed manual.
    Apart from flat tyres it doesn't look to bad from a distance.

    But what about the blind side next to the fence. Fortunately it had been parked far enough away to see it.

    Urgh! It's green instead of blue.

    Back of the roof has bloomed badly, but laquer doesn't appear to have peeled.
    We took a cordless tyre inflator so the first job was to attempt to pump the tyres up. We weren't very hopeful as it had been sitting here for 7 years. The two nearside tyres had 0psi in them, the offside front had about 7psi in it and the offside rear had about 12psi in it.
    They were all pumped up to a nominal 30psi and appeared to stay up.
    Timeline: Sunday afternoon.
    Let's take a bucket of soapy water round and give it a quick swill.
    Three tyres still up. Nearside rear flat again. 75% success rate. Not bad. Pumped the flat one back up again.
    Throw bucket of water over car and apply sponge and nylon brush.
    While washing it we noticed bubbles issuing from from a tiny pinhole in the bottom of the sidewall of the nearside rear tyre.
    That will be why it went flat again then. It looks like there may have been a thorn or a sharp piece of stone on the drive next to the bottom of the tyre and when it went completely flat the weight of the car pushed it through the sidewall. 

    That's looking better.
    Not much more we can do without the keys as it's all locked up.
    Timeline: Monday morning.
    Another phone call from the daughter. She is at the house and has found the V5 and one key. Also handbook and service record. Thinks there may be another key somewhere. We wander round there and do the necessary paper work. It is now offically ours!
    Timeline: Monday afternoon.
    Send off new keeper slip and SORN declaration.
    This time we have to take the Zafira full of tools in an attempt to get it moving.
    It has been left with the handbrake on and the front discs look well rusty, so I  bet the brakes have seized on.
    Takes 2 hands to lift the handbrake lever, then 2 hands to press the button and release the ratchet.
    Rock the car gently and, wonder of wonders, all four wheels appear to rotate. First hurdle overcome.
    Don't want to bore you guys but some of you might like to know our technique for attempting to revive a long-dead engine, honed at various Field of Dreams chod-tinkerings.
    Check oil and water levels. Oil  looks pretty clean so probably serviced not long before it was laid up.
    Remove spark plugs. These all look in good condition.
    Pour a spoonful of engine oil into each cylinder just to give some extra bore lubrication on initial turn over.
    Engine compartment is so cramped that can't see an easy way to try and turn the engine with a spanner, so drop a long screwdriver into one of the spark plug holes so that it rests on top the piston, engage fourth gear and attempt to push the car down the drive, which fortunately has a reasonable downward slope. Watch the screwdriver and, sure enough, we see it rising. The engine isn't seized, thank goodness we don't have another Bob on our hands.
    Because the owner's other car was parked alongside we could not get the Zafira in to jump the battery so we connected up one of the two knackered old batteries we had brought round. Didn't want to risk connecting across a totally dead battery and shorting out the other one, so left the positive terminal connected to the original battery but disconnected the earth wires from the original battery and connected the negative jump lead to the isolated leads, thus removing the original battery from the system. Doing it this way ensures that the positive connections are still kept clear of any metalwork that could cause a short and the negative connection is earthed anyway, so doesn't matter if that touches any other metal. Turned on the ignition and, lo and behold, we have assorted dashboard warning lights.
    Hit the starter. Click. We were right, this battery is knackered.
    Try the other one. Whirr, whirr, the engine spins over. Let it spin until the oil pressure light goes out.
    Clean the plugs with a wire brush (not that they appeared to need it) and replace them. Reconnect the HT leads, making sure they are in the right order. Chug, chug, chug. Engine reluctantly turns over but not fast enough to fire.
    Remember we have a the tiny but powerful Chinese jump pack in the glove box of the Zafira, so this is deployed. Chug, chug, cough, splutter, BLOODY HELL IT'S ONLY RUNNING!
    Remove jump pack and it is still running on the alternator output.
    Leave it running while we check the condition of the spare wheel. Full size alloy, not one of these horrible space-saver things. Appears to have some air in it. Pump it up and fit it to the nearside rear. Try driving it up and down the drive to test the brakes. As we expected they were not great, but worked well enough to stop it eventually. Unfortunately the handbrake would also stop the car but the ratchet would not re-engage so having freed off the brakes it now insisted on rolling down the drive. So we took a deep breath and, leaving everything behind, we set off for home.
    No collection thread as the distance involved was about 500 yards, but target achieved with no problems, except for the power-assisted steering, which apparently now isn't. Have a cup of tea then walk back round to pile all the detritus back into the Zafira and drive it home.

    Gone. Mossy piece of tarmac blinking in the sunlight for the first time in 7 years.

    In its new home. Bob is not impressed by this non-French interloper and turns his back on it.
    Let's see what we have.

    Nicely mouldy steering wheel. Oh look, footwell lights. I say, how posh, did I mention it's a Ghia.

    Illuminated vanity mirrors. Can this get any posher?

    Optional giffer pack included.

    Lots of damp and mouldy boot trim now basking in the sunshine.
    So, what is the overall assessment.
    On cursory inspection it appears to have zero rot on the bodywork or the underside.
    Haven't tried everything yet. A few of the lights don't work (hopefully just bulbs or mouldy connections). Nor do the screenwashers.
    The two main problems seem to be the non-working power steering and the ABS warning light being on. But haven't had time for in-depth investigations yet, so here's hoping an MoT can be passed eventually. No rush, it is a lockdown project after all.
    By now I am sure you are all bored to death so I will stop rambling.
    Bloody hell these threads take a long time to compile.
    Stay tuned for more developments. Or not.
