I think I should resurect this and do a bit more inbetween the work on CEO...

The weekend meet at Wirral tempted me to want to be driving one again, and this one is the last 2.1td I have in possession....

I was pleased to re-read this and find theres no welding to do!! So its a case of reassembling the interior, sort the sticky brakes, tidy up and see whats what. Need to read up on Wills Sunroof leak repair topic too...

Sounds like a fairly easy and worthwhile project, given the body is sound.

Yeah go for it. Weren't you trying to SED this one? And found plugs were different, or was that a different car altogether?

After a 5 year break. This car is my only remaining one. A lot has happend since the last post..

We ended up getting a family ad on in the form of my little man. (now 3 years old as at 3 April 20)And finally in 2019 we bought a house. Family home.. With space for one project car..

This meant a few things. A I cannot keep the farm anymore.. So I've had to clear out. I've been moving to a container unit while at the same time selling off in needed or wanted excess items. This meant a hard choice. Time is a lot less spare.. So anything would be slow progress. The v6 24v Xm deserved something a lot better then I could ever provide and I made the hard choice to say goodbye as we know else where on here.
This left me with the 24v spare shell.. And this L reg td auto which is as stated 7 years ago be my Xm for me.

It sat a long time.. And after killing its fuel pump with veg oil I managed to get another working one and she fired into life.. However I have Pas but no suspension movement.

Anyway. After the current crisis we shall get her over yo home so I can make progress. While at the same time finish clearing the farm.

Anyone want to rescue remains of a 24v shell.. No engine or box but the box is here somewhere. Suspension subframes exhaust etc etc is all still on it..

So. I still plan to put air con on. Etc.. But the first thing to do is get her over to my home. And make a start..

I shall look at reinstating the pictures at the start of this thread..

That's a lot going on there, Paul, on all fronts - and a massive clear-out, which may be no bad thing.
Hope everyone's doing well, including the little fella. He must have an RP number, I guess! ;)
Take it easy.

Yea. Too much really.. I'm still not sure I'll get it all in the container.. This bloody virus has also made work increadbly uncertain. Had three days this week and now they don't need me now untill a week Monday.. Very uncertain
