Restoration of Rs500 #406

37 posts in this topic

well another one in for a restoration 

My good friend Ash has kindly asked me to restore his rs500 back to a std car again . 

This moonstone car is a very straight car with all the original panels etc but has suffered as many have from the big BHP changes that we see on so many 500s 

Well not for much longer 

 

If anyone sees any of the uprated parts they fancy everything is for sale so please just ask ( Breather kit / strut brace / hoses / APs etc etc )

stripping started today

De,locked doors are a pain as they fully seam welded the holes up 

so little plates made to weld in place so locks can be put back
