    juular got a reaction from Tickman in Juular's ovlov rescue centre - poking holes in a 240 (now fixing some)   
    As week later and it's like spring outside which is good for the mojo. 
    @Lacquer Peel helped massively by assisting me taking the front end running gear off. It's actually quite nice to work on a car where you can access pretty much everything without being a contortionist or taking off eleventy hundred unrelated parts to get to a bolt.

    Compleat with spiders.

    The right wishbone is brand new and looks unused. A new left one also came with the car so I'll swap it, even though the old one looks ok.

    The subframe is gubbed though.

    The ok side for comparison of all the missing metal.

    Turns out these are like unicorn tears and I'm struggling to find another one. If you know of anyone who might have one please get in touch.
    On the weldathon front, with the floor and inner sill done I started on this grot hole.

    The curvature of a calor gas bottle is about right for smacking a panel over.


    The trim clips have made nice rust holes. Chop chop.

    Bits made 

    Jigsaw going together




    It seems like years since I fabricated the piece for the bottom of the pillar, it's good to finally get to glue it on.

    Just a final section to bend to shape to finish this off and this whole area is done.
    Bit of zinc primer till then..

    Not sure if there's a spotted thread on here but nevertheless, this old thing is so glorious it deserves it's own!
    Parked next to it at Lidl's but sadly didn't get to speak to the owner. Would like to have known which engine it has. All I know is that it's a derv. Last MOT was in 2016 as it'll be exempt now, being from 1968. Had lots of welding and undersealing in 2014, according to the MOT history, which is probably how it's survived this long.

    It was a pleasure to work on such a simple car, and most of the bolts came out easily. 
    We did fight with the engine cross member for a while before realising it was still loosely bolted in. 😅

    juular reacted to Lacquer Peel in van engine belgian/swedish banger - tuning box fitted   
    This car has been going well, except for a ball joint that showed lots of play only a few months after being fitted. Unfortunately it's integral with the control arm and these "4 bolt" control arms are a pain in the arse to remove, you have to jack the engine up to allow just enough access. Full refund for the faulty part though, fair play. 
    I drove it for a lockdown compliant trip to see my family and it averaged 58MPG. I was taking it pretty easy but going quicker than the lorries. The readout is very accurate unlike VAG ones.
    It was also quite good in the cold weather, with its heated velour. I did reduce the tyre pressures to help it through the deep snow we saw here. 
    I treated it to a tuning box and the results are quite impressive. 
    Initially it was slower with the box fitted but playing with the settings resulted in a 0-60mph time of 7.8s down from between 9.1s and 9.6s as standard. I could make it go quicker but this seems fine to me - minimal visible smoke, and it feels much punchier overall.

    So, having gone almost a year without a 4 wheeled conveyance of my own I couldn't risk that ticking over to a full year and my Autoshite membership being revoked.
    The end of lockdown and the little one going up to 5 days at pre school meant a second car for the household was needed* as something to just trundle up and down to the local village an Aygo / C1 was the obvious choice. 
    So when James put his C70 Convertible up in the for sale section it made perfect sense, who doesn't buy a 2.4 litre turbo drop top as a run around? A quick insurance quote showed it'd be less than a score more per year to insure and 300 quid a year in tax extra to drive something that you actually want to easily passes the man maths value for money test....
    It only has a couple of niggles that were known issues when I picked it up. The first one of which has put its hand up and waved at me so I thought I'd better update this thread.
    The EML stayed off happily for a few weeks, but popped on, after pulling over to put up the roof as it'd started drizzling. I'm sure it was the cars way of scolding me for allowing a couple of drops of water to reach its seats.
    @Craig the Princess very kindly posted my codereader across having left it with him before lockdown, so this morning I chucked it on to check the code.
     
    as @juular had predicited it was...
    Firstly how swish is it to have a OBD socket in the arm rest, there's plenty of other chod that could learn from this rather than forcing you to crawl around while digging under the dash. If you're going to have the temerity to throw faults up at least let people read them in comfort.
     
     
    The expected low cat efficiency thingy. Which is good, at least it hadn't thrown any extras in for  a laugh.
    Given everything James has done to try and cure it, I'm going to go down the o2 sensor spacer route. 
    I'll stick a question in ask a shiter to see if anyone has done it before and has a recommended source.

    I didn't think it looked that bad around the towbar and thought the rotten part was actually the towbar frame. I wondered if removing the towbar would go 90% of the way to sorting it. To be fair I was crawling around in the dark in December!
    The boot floor looked like a decent patch wouldn't take too long.
