Extracted a radiator from my ph.2 in the rain yesterday, this evening I painted the bits that I didn't have the chance to yesterday because of said rain:

Little update showing the recent fun and games that has been had:
















To summarise:
The car has had: a VGC PAS pump and new aux belt to replace the whining old one, whilst we did this we found that the aux tensioner had loads of play in it so this was replaced with a brand new one as well.
The car was also fitted with a nearly new Nissens rad and bottom hose, the TB and inlet were built up with new, genuine gaskets and known working sensors some of which are nearly new which eliminates the niggling sensor issue experienced previously (I hope).
Unfortunately, an injector o-ring split, which p**sed fuel all over the fuel rail and ruined the finish (should have used petrol-resistant laquer), and I'm waiting for another set in the post.

I also fitted a flocked centre-console but didn't have time to take pictures.

Just found a big hole in the gasket I put on, on the cylinder that was causing problems and I think my injector caps weren't orientated properly.

I'll get there eventually... Laugh my ass off:

No. :/

Waiting for another gasket, and I'm going to get injector seals from mr.injector and replace them all as I kept finding split ones and maybe there's a vac leak on one or something, and swap the other fuel rail with the other FPR back on.

Thanks! I'll get there in the end. The engine's fine I've just cocked something up somewhere I think.
Another new gasket plus an injector rebuild kit are both on the way.

Gave the car a wash and wax ready to be MOT'd tomorrow. Also sorted the airbag light coming on due to the horrendous phase 1 connectors.









I also prepped and painted my spare exhaust heatshield ready to go on the car.

Before, from a previous post in this thread:


After:

Lacquer peel on the bootlid and around the sunroof will be sorted, it hasn't gotten any worse. I considered having a go with a rattle can and sandpaper myself but I think I'll get someone who really knows what they're doing to sort it. You'll have to have a look at it at some point Chris!

Thanks! Engine bay isn't looking so great again, all the painted bits have come back off. Sad

If I keep sorting little things over time then it'll eventually be mint! Also, cashflow is about to become a lot less of a problem. Smile

Eh, tarmac?

I have indeed! I actually got it earlier this year, but for some reason I don't start until September.
I need a good job to support my obsession with naff french cars. Laugh my ass off

Lacquer peel on the boot gone, replaced the tailgate with another which has a genuine SP pack spoiler on it, wih a 3rd brake light in it.
This is one of the three-legged ones which I'm sure I'll get abuse for, but it is a much nicer shape than the aftermarket ones and actually bolts into mounts which are bonded on the glass in the factory.

Took the car to a bodyshop for a quote on repairing the lacquer peel around the sunroof and they said they'd sand back the whole roof and paint it all, so it'd be 250 which is a bit much really.

Has anyone had positive experiences sanding back lacquer and relacquering?

£250 does sound expensive its a £100-150 unless sunroof has to be popped out

It's a fair price for respraying the whole roof I suppose, I just don't want to pay to respray the whole roof. Laugh my ass off

Will take pictures of the OEM mountings when I get back in case anybody is interested.

What about wrapping the roof?

Great thread. Good inspiration.
