    Keen to get more work done on the van since we can't go out. Many moons ago I bought some epoxy mastic converter to try and keep the chassis going a bit longer

    Let get this done

    quick whiz with the wirewheel...

    Better. Mix up this stuff... Wearing a mask obvs..

    Couldn't find my stirrers so a rawlplug will do. It says you can spray it, but I'm not sure how thin you would have to make it. It's seriously gloopy stuff. Covers well though, 400ml did the rear arms and most of the rear of the chassis

    Turns out this isn't the original chassis - Rick has changed the chassis on this van before, saying that the original one was stuck to the body with mastic - they lifted the whole body up, unbolted, and the mastic brought the chassis with it. Impressive hold, but probably not the best fixings between body and chassis...
    Now waiting for an ecas delivery, and for Rick to return to finish off the brakes.

    Me, I've always been around diesels, grew up on farms, apart from the 2CV all my parents cars were derv. I used to love the smell of fresh petrol, specially 4 star, then too much of my youth spent cleaning out carbs etc and now it just gives me a headache. I work with Diesel every day (engine test beds) and I've come to love the smell. Recently came in to contact with a scandinavian synthetic diesel (HVO) and it was as offensive as margerine. As for the sound, the growl of my Alfa 147 mjet JTD was addictive and 5 cyls have a lovely warble. Straight 6 dizzles can give a great burble almost v8 like.  
    Anyway, not to take your train off the track, totally accept that a Panda is not a great application for a diesel and that a 1.2 Fire is.  On that subject my parents have expressed interest in a facelift 500. Is the 1.2 still the best all rounder? They asked about the TwinAir but I heard they're not great (fuel or reliability)?

    You all know the score.
    I have not even finalised the sale of scooter and got the money in my hands and then
    Fate kicks you in the face.
    So i have been thinking take it slow, no rush, find a good condition well cared for panda.
    And then what turns up 6kms away in the hills near me.
    2002 panda 1.1 hobby, 180000 kms (110k miles). 
    Euro 200. !
    Add says the car does work, not much else.
    Is not a city car, some old mountain bloke has almost killed it.
    We are all suckers for a sad case.
    Going to view it tomorrow morning.



    Hopefully no rust.
    Parts and engines should be cheap in italy right ?
    Why am i so excited about this.
    He did say bring jump leads, always a good sign ! 
    I think this model has electric windows.

    Awesome! Back in the game!
    So question is, did the bleed fix it or the clutch change??

    Put the exhaust back on this morning. Made the mistake of trying to do the battery clamp up after putting the air box back in so lost the bolt.
    Started it up, and it was Bollocks. The clutch wouldn't disengage drive and you couldn't change gear with the engine running.
    Spoke to @BeEP who suggested bleeding the clutch. Did that and it works!
    Still feels a bit too light and quite low to the floor but it drives, stops and goes through all the gears!!!!

    What's the release bearing like? My worn one was only slightly gritty but made it impossible to change gear.
    Also clutch alignment tools are for the prosperous. 1/2 inch extension with a bit of electrical tape wrapped around to take up the slack.
    Check how much the flywheel can rotate - should be 1 oclock either direction max and with a little spring force.
     
    Great progress though. Ive now got Multipla search alerts on all the selling sites!
