Makes you realise now it's running how big a bargain it was!


Maybe it was cheap because of the colour lol. It wouldn't have been my first choice


Nor mine tbh!

Perhaps get it vinyl wrapped once it's all up and running

Dash looks great - if you don't mind me asking where did you get the Dash lights - looking for something similar but all I can see are the billet aluminium switches when I search the web.

Cheers. Andrew

Hi Andrew, cheers shes coming on bit by bit. Ive added the link below, I saw the aluminium ones but I wanted to keep with a black theme. They are from an eBay seller who does a few different options.

Cheers

I thought youd like that lol. I do like the all black look as makes it looks meaner, so I cant promise I wont change in future. I was keeping silver to match the wheels, but just bought some used minilite wheels which are charcoal coloured:0)

Looking good

Leave the minilights as they are,yellow my arse!

One little tip before you refit the suspension, paint all the areas on the track rod ends/balljoints that are going to be exposed once fitted
Easy to do now they are nice new rust free metal, they will rust within a few months then you've got to de-rust before painting!

Front end looks mint now

Have you had a look at rear wishbones/hubs etc?

Did you forget to paint the ball joints etc?

Nope you might find you get a mention in the next episode As we did paint those parts on your recommendation. Next episode is all about the rears, I thought I was ok until I spotted a seal blown on the sierra callipers Got a repair kit on order
