Shh Jura they are a secret we don't want everyone to know how good they are

Bought a few bits from Alyn at AS Performance this week in preparation, 22mm whiteline adj rear ARB, whiteline rear drop links and finally a set of Goodrich brake lines.

Also sent for some new wheels nuts and lockers and I have a set of mudflaps on the way... The details of which will be revealed when finished as I wish to keep a few things up my sleeve along with my choice of wheels which I am yet to order

One question guys.... I'm thinking of the front plastic inner arch liners.... How much are these new? Mine are a bit grubby I can either clean them up and maybe give them a coat of plastic paint to spruce them up for when they do get put back on or I can finish it off with a new pair cost permitting that is.

Anyone out there with a part number,cost or web link so I can find out some more information?

I'm going to spend a few hours on the car Saturday as yet we have not started taking it apart but fingers crossed its not far away now to start.

Great thanks Ian I'll give them a call that's a nice price too, Kev said to me the other evening pity if you do all that work and don't address the arch liners.

I spoke with them yesterday Ian and they have one side there only as someone has bought the other but they did put me in contact with someone else that can supply them new when I'm ready cheers bud

Well after talking with Andy this morning I'm pleased to say the strip down all baring an earthquake will start on Monday and the shell will be off to the body shop it's been frustrating to have a 7 page project thread with no major action as such so hopefully in the next few weeks we will be well under way and I will have some great pictures and my head will be spinning but on a positive I've got everything pencilled out and it's given me a chance to research a few areas.

Picked up the last but one part of the jigsaw this morning as well

Right at last a proper update on actual work so far

I'm not sure if I should be in a stress panic or not at the moment but I actually feel quite relaxed and considering what the car looks like at present I think I'm doing well

Anyway I'll let the pictures show you where we are at the minute, I've not seen the car stripped I've just received the pictures for now and will be going to have a closer look at things and write my list of jobs to do out on Monday

Si, renew the arch liners. I have done the rears on the Mixer. 12 for OE Mazda are well worth it for me and a no brainer.

All organised Ian and very similar in price

Had a look over the car today and decided on how to break things down by job, all looks good to me it's just nuts and bolts I'm told

The list in general is to split items into job lots

1. Anything that needs sandblasting.
2. Separate all loose nuts/bolts
3. Struts & springs
4. Remove old brakes to reveal hubs in order to prep

That's just for starters, we are also splitting engine and gearbox to check the clutch is fitted correctly, it seems daft not to now its apart then I can clean and paint gearbox if needed then clean the engine etc... For me if I break things into tasks I can get through it a lot easier without it cracking me up











Gearbox serial number....



I'll be replacing a few bushes after talking with Alyn at AS as now its stripped certain ones are easy to do, also I need to clean all the bolts up and research what I can do with them in regards coating as stainless are not an option since they are bespoke.

Small steps

I know you like a pristine car, but this is ridiculous. Taking the body off is going to be a right pain in the **** come every Sunday afternoon when its due a wash

Hi Si,
Just popped in to have a read of these thread for your new project. I must say that you have defiantly got your work cut out lots of 'blood, sweat and tears' along the way and when it is done she will look special. Good luck Si on this restoration project....your gonna need it.

No tears Darren but probably some sweat and maybe only a little blood no need to let it frighten me it's just a car in bits

Frayz I got to keep a tight game as I know your watching and I have to show you what us old uns can do

Hey Richy..... Yes mate it's more than I expected but I'm not surprised about it as I did have my eyes wide open before day one ready to expect and it's only when it's in bits the true story reveals itself. Andy was also impressed with the shell he feels that it has aged very well indeed.

Next step will be front and rear bumper removal then the wind deflector needs to come off the drivers side and the windscreen needs to come out for rust removal and paint around the arial base.

Si, heated front screen could well be worth fitting if you're removing the existing unit. Lots of the rally boys use them.

I've been doing a little research today on plating etc quite interesting really what's about I had not realised, I need to find someone local to me as I am a little nervous at sending a box full of bolts and such off with a courier just in case they go missing as what a nightmare that would be to replace since they are all so bespoke.

Also I dropped on a local sand/bead/soda blaster so I shall be calling in on them to see if they will be able to assist with all the bits I need cleaning back, I'll update on this as and when I find more out.

Soda blasting is very good Si. Just be aware that if you get anything done that has any fine oil ways etc then you can never always get all the media out.
Even with an ultrasonic wash I wouldn't ever media blast an engine block for instance.
Exterior stuff it's superb.
