Well my son was keen to help today so we headed out this afternoon to the garage. I had polished the bumper up in the week and fitted it on. I'll give it another polish when my new orbital polisher turns up.

With that done, drove the car outside and took both front wheels off so that I could bolt the bumper back on, refit the arch liners and the washer bottle etc. I discovered that both the front arch extensions were barely held on with at least four broken mounting lugs on each side so I riveted them in place from within the arch to keep it looking smart.

I don't think I posted any pics of the arches after the repairs, but they are now looking quite fresh Still some cleaning to do though...



Finally fitted the new lock set I picked up from Simon, but only after fitting it have I discovered that the boot lock doesn't seem to work. I will take another look at it again tomorrow. That was less of an issue than the ignition and the immobiliser ignition aerial, but eventually sorted that this evening. Finished up with some pics...





Just need to run through the checklist, but all being well should be in for an MOT on Monday.

Reminds of the press car photo in the 106 Haynes manual in a weird way.

Good job my man!

Agreed, looking absolutely brilliant. I popped back to the start of the thread to check out your chassis gusset repairs (guess what mine has failed its MOT on? All looked fine, hidden behind the underseal!), looks like a completely different car!

Haha cool. Give us a clue, is it still a pug?? Just had the head off the vts & guess what, the fu**ing idiots who done the jp4 conversion had drilled straight through the head!!!!

I really couldn't believe it when i saw it!! You have to be a real idiot to drill straight through! But no not only that the hole's were 5mm away from where there meant to be!!! Retard must of needed glasses!lol

Head should be ok if i plug the holes but i'm going to put my jp4 head on for now as this head has jp4 springs and mines been done propley.

I really couldn't believe it though! Retards shouldn't try engine conversion's or be aloud near drill's!lol

Sorry for spamming your thread Cris. Just thought i'd share why the vts has been so crap!! Weird there was no running problems on small journeys though!

Sounds like that might explain the oil on your inlet manifold...

Well I didn't post up much since the weekend as I was really busy with work and then other stuff up to now.



MOT was fine, took the car in hot and it was very quiet first thing in the morning. Paddy who runs the local garage and test station has a lot of Irish pals who drop in - one brought their Irish registered Ford F350 Super Duty in for testing - those are flipping enormous pickups.

I replaced the passenger side wishbone after the MOT. When I was cleaning it the other day something didn't look right so I got the tape measure out. Drivers side measured 4cm tyre to arch at the horizontal midpoint, but the passenger side did turn out to be different - it was bent! The gap measured 5.5cm at the front and 2.5 at the back. Not immediately noticeable but once I realised I couldn't ignore it. New one fitted now and it measures up square and it's all back to normal so the handling should be improved.

The orbital polisher I bought turned up today so I cracked out the Megs polish and pads that came from Clean your Car last week and got to work. Not finished yet, but I think it will look a bit better once done

Wow, that's like night and day! Big difference, will be mopping mine very soon, hopefully I'll get some similar results.

What orb polisher did you buy btw?

Went for the Dodo Juice one... Big step up from the Halfords DA one I had before and more than enough for what I need given how often I will use it.

Lots of photos of the car now all polished posted up in the for sale thread.

On the last drive the back end was very noisy but it only became apparent what it was when I took the photos yesterday and had a look underneath. I had not secured the spare wheel


Sorted now
