Good to hear cam getting a fully deserved break and tlc andy. Look forward to seeing it in all its glory again. How long u reckon it will take?
Quite long as I’m doing it as I can afford it.
Engine out ! this is the rouse RS 500 spec engine with 205 small core pluged block ( YBD ) it is marked with ARE—89E694 & the original Zytec engine management & mechanical fuel pump. These as they are the original spec for the car need to be preserved. So are being bubble wrapped & stored.
Gearbox & diff are recently rebuilt. They will go straight back in after a clean. Suspension will be a separate rebuild section because they will be back to individual components checked & replaced as necessary.
Some bits over the years had been added seat mounts passenger seat mounts. They’ve been removed to get the floor pan straightened where ramden jacking had occured. It’s quite amazing how many little brackets clips wiring mountings there are to remove.
Then as pieces are removed the different paint schemes start to appear.
Now the shell was ready to be soda/sand blasted
Great progress Andy. Could you have got a bigger grinder for those little brackets lol. Looking forward to following this resto.
Great work Andy!
