Got some new parts arrived and ive also been right busy cleaning everything ( and theres a shat lot needs cleaning) including the brake lines and master servo ect as they were all starting to go crusty.. Starting to return parts to there original places now .. Got this exhaust which is a full stainless with a sports cat and its the style i wanted that was fitted to some of the le`s back in the day with the round exhaust ports! Cleaned up quite nice!

Had a right mare with the mission to restore the aircon as it seems i left some double hard to replace pressure washers on the old unit,, these washers go between the motor and the pipework and it got taken by the euro trash! i ended up having to order these 2 daft seals from the states so im waiting on these to return now to complete the kit.

Dropped my turbo charger in for a rebuild with a guy called krs chris from rugby the other day and hes just got back with an update! Seems the turbo was not a standard unit as i was originally made to believe and had 360 bearings installed! Also it seems theres now a high chance this is the cause of the oil loss and not only it the unit battered inside but the seals ect are all also shagged!
He sent me this picture ! Tbh, i cant believe it was working as good as it was looking at this>

The turbo is now on its way back and while ive been waiting ive been busy with the polishing tools and im quite happy with the results on the back box>>Image
Just done a long day fitting back all the pipework for the aircon and powersteering systems/ brakes/ and what a hell of a job that was lol trying to remember the order of which pipe goes infront of which haha. Must of had each pipe in / out 4 times till it finally started to fall into place..
