It's a good job I like our cats!



This is Sam. Not the one who got locked in the garage and made those prints on the bonnet.

Took the front apart to start on the list of jobs I need to do. First, start fitting the Samco hoses.



Coolant was weeping through this one.











Steady..steady...


Ah,bugger


Looking good




And I'm out of time!

Headlight washers plumbed in at last with the kit from Classic Quattros.

Hey Rob

can I suggest another job (as if you need another one) while you are doing the under bonnet stuff..........take off Rusty's rusty rocker cover and have it re-powder coated in black...things then under the bonnet will look as good as what has been done by you on the outside

hope you don't mind my suggestion.

Keep up the good work.. you have done a good job and write a great story

Cheers

Yeah it does rather let things down. It's on the list!

I made Rusty cry! Turns out the headlight washer pump leaks. As soon as I topped the bottle up, water dribbled out of the washers.



Water hoses done.

First time I've really got a look at the turbo. It looks alright. No play in the compressor wheel.

Hmm that's not so good. The flexi hose to the intake was repaired with duct tape, too.

All back together - time for a test drive. It feels a bit better but still runs out of power at about 5000 rpm.
The intake hose is slightly twisted so might be deforming under boost - need to loosen it and sort it but it's a pig to get to.



Just checking.. yep the coolant stayed in.


Took the wife for her first ride in the car. She pointed out about ten things wrong with it that I haven't got to yet.
Then we broke down in the shopping centre car park - not quite enough charge in the battery to start the car. She got a bit grumpy because we needed to be somewhere and I had to call the AA for a jump start from a booster pack.


Today was more successful - I took Rusty to the Capital Rodders Swap Meet.
Longest drive yet - Tawa to Upper Hutt. Coming back over SH58 made me grin. Must sort out the rear wheel rubbing issue though!!
