Resurrecting this thread more for my benefit than most others so apologies in advance. Just over a month since I bought the car, so a bit of an update and list of planned work (some more desired/needed than others). Overall really pleased with it and love driving it, kids love it too and my old man has enjoyed helping me tidy some bits up. Only down side is as soon as i put my money into an occasional car, my daily driver decided to go wonky (fuel injector and now the DPF)! At least I have a back up! Work done so far;
Repaired the door catch.
Renewed the hinge bolts and shims and made the door fit more reasonably.
Repaired the hood
Full service including dropping and replacing all oils.
Small patch of welding to the drivers footwell.
Waxoiled (controversial I know).
Fitted an immobiliser.
Re-sealed part of the windscreen.
Rebadged the rear number plate assembly.
Fit an expansion bottle to the radiator.
Replace the diff (think I’m going to put up with the noise until it actually fails).
Repair passenger side minilight alloy (MOT advisory).
Re paint and/or replace the seats and buy some head rests (holes are there).
Remove, repair and re varnish the dash. Replace/fix all dash lights and footwell lights.
Replace the hood.
Once all this is done I’ll consider looking at the paint work - maybe a full strip down and re paint - we will see!
