No way in intended as a PUN against “Back to the Future”……………….Ok Maybe it was.
NGFB Here with the first of many updates to the blog.
Now that my holiday season is over we can get back to the Developments of AWSOME Motors and other engined powered goodness. But first I must thanks CorsaSport (Its a Bag) for the setup or the site and all other aspects of gfbdevelopments.co.uk, your a star! Its not that I could not do all this, its just the fact I cant bare to do IT work outside of my IT Work if you get my meaning!
Anyway on to the updates……………………erm………………..Yeah!
Currently we are awaiting news on the Capri MOT, well its not till Saturday but still! Being its first year in my ownership some jobs were required. For the life of me I cannot understand how it got an MOT last year. Its required all new braking components and being a Ford a little welding ;). We shall know the news @ the weekend (Hope it passes as Im sick of driving modern shite about on my time off!).
The Plan with the Capri is to lay it up over winter, so refit the standard wheels and cover it up. However before I do this I intend on replacing the rather laughable strut top repairs, just like the Jacking point repairs (May I add being done by a so call Pro on a popular Ford website) these must have been done by a Blind lemming with a twitch and no concept of how to remove old RUST!!. New repair parts have been collected and TBH its a straight forward repair but I want to make it look right and not bodge it. Stay tuned for the Piccys.
Well Myself and leebo have given up on the 100000000year old wiring and decided to rewire the frontend, the lights were proving a Bitch working one minute and not the next so Ive ordered a new fuse box and this will be sorted ASAP………………..BEFORE ANY OTHER PROJECTS!!!! ;)
First year off the road was eaiser than I thought……………….Its been 10 years since I restored this car due to money I decided not to tax it this year. TBH it needs a front end respray and I keep having perverse thoughts about MX5 engines but until the workshop is clear of projects its going to have to wait :(. I think next year I’ll rebuild the front suspension then use it as a summer hack though.
My First car :( OK all the weldings done but Im just not happy with the forward spring hangers, and since repairing them myself they have now become avaliable to purchase from MGOC, so in the coming months some will be ordered the car will be flipped (AGAIN) and this fitted. Would be nice for this car to see the road again but there is no rush.
