W.I.P. Franny the feista

Post by bee tea on Sun Feb 24, 2008 3:10 pm

righty picked the car on thursday with thanks to my mate
the bumper had to come off in order to get it onto the trailer. i kinda like the front without the bumper


jobs to be done

I spent friday and started stripping the car out due to there being a funny smell and water gettin in from somewhere.
pic of everything that was stripped.

once the entire car was stripped and sound proofing removed cos it was soaking wet i found this
(passenger side)

(driver side)

these where on the wheel arches Sad
interior fully stripped out

had to drill the fog lights out of the bumper but we didnt have a drill so grinded it out instead

Cool, looks like you got a lot of good bits with it then. Looks like the top pic of that rust it going to need welding, second you might get away with.

the puma rear axle is now sittin in the garage waiting to be fitted, still trying to find a welder so progress is slow can only fit the rear beam, and clean the interior ready for welding and waxoyling
