Wow, very nice looking. You should always take care of the outside as well as the inside. Once fully sorted, your gonna be glad you did :burnout:

What beautiful color and set of rims! I love it!


Just curious, but what is left to be sorted out on it?

thanks i will endevour to keep it cleaner it's really nice when i do... i hadn't been working on it much due to uni but that's over now and i bought a project car ( a 1948 morris 6 ms) which is actually helping rather than hindering as i'm finding a lot of the jobs need doing on both cars, anyway...

left to do - and this is no means an exhaustive list
fix oil pressure gauge
re-grease front wheel bearings
fix electric boot release
fix terrible horrible noise from flywheel
change auto trans fluid
change timing belt
change coolant
install new head unit - radio doesn't work
install central locking
fix dash lights
recover dash
change brake fluid
change spark plugs
change air/fuel filters
fix A/C - it's almost summer here :(
remove old handsfree phone stuff the previous owner left in the car
fix trim on doors
change power steering fluid
fix windscreen washers
fix cruise control - works but surges (i've got a feeling it's worn mounting rubbers)
fix torn R/H rear uv boot

not all of these things are as urgent as others and not all of them are big jobs (it's just getting motivated to go and do it) but this is what i'd like to do before i'd call the car complete. clean car inside and out was on this as well before yesterday :D

Noise in that Flywheel area could be a bad thing for the 32v cars. You need to check the thrust bearing and flex plate load. There is a write up somewhere but I would think that a quick Google search will bring up lots of results. All the other stuff is minor.

What about the Water Pump/Timing Belt. Breaking a TB on a 32V will bend valves or worse.

Post Re: cleeeeeeeeean
yeah timing belt was in there, i've got one just trying to figure out how to install it when i can't find a place to sell me on of those kempf tensioner tools, you reccomended 928 specialists but when i try to check out everytime i choose a postage option other than fed ex (which would cost 200 bucks) the page dies and tells me there's an error, is there a figure for the force/deflection needed as i'd rather buy set of lineal scales like this
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Pocket-Fishi ... 4aafdbff56
that actually tells you the N/m or lb/p that your applying. which means you can use it for other purposes, i notice the origional porsche tensioning tool has a numbered scale on it. as for the noise in the flywheel i swear it's my next project, if anyone finds the write up i'd love a link please.
thanks
