    Nearside rear quarter finished off this week.

    Identified some low spots in the rear valance, they were given a thin skim of fine filler.

    Then rubbed and primed again.

    The dolly was shortened and bolted on today, surprisingly it fitted absolutely perfectly - wasn't expecting that!


    After that was done, good tidy up and vacuum session happened - it was incredibly dusty in the shed.

    Once that was done, I continued taping up the inner front wings in preparation for fettling up the front end. Just got to give the rear panel its final block/rub and I can switch ends.

    In actual fleet news, I'm doing nothing. House has to come first, so the C5 will stay and be used for as long as it is mobile. 2CV has been taking the load this week. Charade is now out of action, but while I could SORN it, a year's tax is only £30 so there's not much point. GSA is sitting ready to act as a C5 replacement if needed, and the Matiz will be coming back soon too. Starting to wish I hadn't committed to the expenditure yet, but little did I know I'd be buying a house when I sent it away!

    Nice car, I like the way your keeping it original 
    May be worth changing the plastic thermostat housing to a metal one when you change the water pump. 
    You probably already know but try and get the front end as high up as possible when you refill the cooling system as they are a pain for air locks.

    Just the little things:



    This makes me very happy. One of those things that tidies it up /and/ helps prevent rust.

    Decided on the plate.
    Checked the lights at night and I have maybe the only E36 I’ve seen in years with four equally-bright and shiny tail lights…

    Regarding the GMP Suzi GN250 above: having watched a short docu on YT about GMP's big bikes (Honda CB750 iirc) a while back, I can see the conversation in the garage when New Bikes Day came around...
    "Bob, Cyril...BMWs for you. Andy, Hugh...you get to try these new Honda Pan Euro's. Jim...this is for you..."
    "Ahhh fuck off Sarge...seriously?"
    *much laughter at Jim's expense*
    Reading the card, I get that it was part of the long and honourable tradition of 'noddy bikes', but even so...the GN250 was a turkey, full stop. 18,000mi in 4yrs tells a story!

    there are times when i kinda think i've missed out on marriage and kids.
    especially now i'm hitting middle age and the few friends i have who did all that their kiddies are now going off to university and leaving home, it brings it home to me that i have sorta wasted my life.
    but by not doing the family thing, which i am certain i would be shit at, cos, well, i'm too self centred, and it does also mean that i haven't properly grown up, as i have not ever needed to!
    hence a house with some proper crappy interior decor, and that is full of old trains, toy cars and bits of old motor cars.....

    There are various videos on youtube of people who have modified their welded plastic drum to be bolt-together and have successfully changed bearings and seals.  The bearings (as High Jetter has mentioned above) will be very cheap standard bearings.  The seal (which is almost always a single-lip gartered oil-seal fitted backwards to "face" the water side) will also be a bog-standard unit available from any bearing supplier over the internet for a couple of quid.
    It'll take you a few hours, but probably well worth it compared to £100 for a new drum.
    Edit: if you can be bothered while it's all apart, a weep hole drilled between the water seal and the first bearing out to the outside world (just like in an automotive water pump) would save the bearings from the very slight water that will always get past the seal.  The bearings would probably last forever if you did that.  Especially if you "splash out" for sealed bearings. (the ones with an integrated rubber seal either side of the rolling elements)

    It might be physically possible to replace them, if you can extract them without the (probably) plastic drum cracking. They will be stock bearings, with their number on them. Finding the replacement seal(s) though could be a whole world of pain and frustration.

    Beautiful morning and it looks like it’s going to be a beautiful day weather wise, so why the fuck my neighbour at 6am decided to fill his burner bin with old feather edge light it on fire then ponce around it smoking a cigarette dressed in his dressing gown like Noel Coward I have no idea
