Time for a update. New bucket seats arrived from MotorDrive just before Xmas so I thought I would take advantage of having a quiet Boxing day and get them fitted and change the wheels at the same time. I wish I never bothered
Lost about an hour trying to work out why she wouldn't start after I had moved her round the corner while I locked the garage. Figured it was just a flat battery so went to get my car to jump it, but of course the battery is behind the passenger seat so the leads wouldn't strecth. After much p*ssing about moving both cars into the right position I hooked both batteries up and turned the key, but she still wouldn't fire up
only after all this did I look at the dashboard and see that fuel switch was not on
the language was quite choice to say the least.
Once I had made it back to mine I started taking out the seats, harnesses and side mounts. All went pretty smoothly and had them out in about 20 mins. Again lady luck was not on my side. The caged nuts on the bars are too narrow for the new seats
so they go on my to do list for the new year. Then had to put one of the EVOs back in to get the car back to the garage. By this time the wind had got up, so decided to change the wheels in next doors shop car park where I would be covered from the weather. Moved everything round there ready to start, only to find I had bought the wrong jack with me. It was too high to get under the sills, I had to admit defeat!
Tried again today, managed to get the wheels swopped, I am sure they won't be to everyones taste but they were cheap.
Hope to start stripping and selling bits off the 205 tomorrow as I have some shiney bits that need buying. Already sorted some roller bearings out from Rich_W and got a rear ARB coming from Ash
