Congrats Leighton! The Mondial can wait
There are some pretty neat Ferrari child seats and you have room for 2

You did a good job buying a Mondial. Now you can pick them up from daycare every evening!

Congrats!!!

A few things to check- remove the metal door sill plates and check for rust as the water lies here. Best to rust proof it and coat in an undersealer. Drill the sills with 5mm size and fill sills with waxoil then fit a 4.8mm pop rivit. Cam belt idlers tend to wear on the running surface so best to change these next belt change. Starter motor should be fitted with an aux relay as they tended to have a voltage drop over the cables, this ensures the solenoid gets its full 12 volts.Check that G/B oil is 75/90 and not 80/90 as per the book, much easier to change gear. Treat petrol tank to a slug of injector cleaner yearly to stop engine cutting out when lifting off throttle. If you can afford it, then fit the big front brake kit as the standard brakes are a bit wanting. You can get all the exhaust bits made in T304 stainless to order at considerable
savings. Give consideration to a new water pump but it is difficult to fit in situ. I had mine for 20 years before i went modern

Hi People ...i,m back !!!

Hi to all of you, and a very Happy New Year ...

Well , what can i say . ... I am ashamed to say that i have not carried out any work on 'Scarlet' for well over 6 months , apart from removing the covers and firing up the engine every other week ( still love that sound ).
This has been due to many family issues - illnesses , house moves , new grandchildren, holidays etc ....

BUT no more distractions ( hopefully ) , so i should be back on track to continue the project this coming weekend . My first task is to reaccess exactly where i am , in order to plan my best way forward..

Wish me luck and look out for my updates ; plus expect to have many queries thrown at you :-)

Roll on 2017 ............

Back in action

Carried on today with the new fog and spot light switch replacement . I had previously found modern replacements for the poor originals . With a little bit of modification , i was able to use the original housings and faceplates .... Fitted the fog switch into the panel and I think they look quite good ..

I still have some original ones if you would ever decide on going back to original, but yours is looking very futuristic

double fans ...

I did get a second OEM fan from Stefan(stekkefun4) and put it with 2 upper and 1 lower alu holders. Have to paint them black and put some silicon on that connector hole instead of the red isolation.

This is the fan unit I have found that will fit the radiator . The mountings wiill need a bit of adapting , but i think they will look good on the car plus more importantly improved cooling ..
