    Hello all

    Falling from Charybde to Scylla when I tried to fix things on the Roadster I bought from a german guy last november, all turned to be clear: It would be a complete rebuild.

    The car received its V5 in 1984 but prior that experienced a complicated birth: hole drilled and closed with mastic or left open everywhere, screws and nuts of very different quality from new stainless metric to used imperial, electric harness taken roughtly from the donor car and stretched to the limit...

    Yes Cameron, you were right, nothing but a complete rebuild was mandatory

    I was advised to open a diary, so here it is.

    Now the beauty is totally nacked, the serious game will begin with de-rusting and repainting.

    On the kitchen table Santa returned in April and all the necessary stuff for a brand new electric harness was received from English suppliers.

    Stay tuned
