A bit of an update

Its been a while since I have updated the site as there’s been a lot going on over the past year.

B2 car was towed away without warning by the council, as it was parked unregistered on the road (although it had a permit).  I was extremely annoyed by this and unfortunately didn’t have the $ they wanted to charge me to reclaim it so i believe it was sold off. NOT IMPRESSED as it was ready to go…

The other cars are currently in storage in a paddock near Horsham (all covered) as we have moved to Ballarat and we are still trying to find a suitable workshop or garage to allow us to work on them and store them.

Prepping B2 for roadworthy

spent today prepping B2 for Roadworthy.

On inspection i found a fair few small and potentially troublesome spots of bubble rust and a few scratches in the paint down to the metal so we have removed and treated the rust, filled sanded and primed all these small spots today.

new mirrors were fitted and we are finishing up installing the stereo and tidying up the interior, giving it a good clean.

Next weekend weather permitting will look to finish off the paint work on her and get her a roadworthy and registered the following week.

heres some pics of todays work:

Getting B2 ready to go on the road

Connor and I started getting B2 ready to go on the road today.

1st step is a good wash then a cut and polish which will take a few days to complete

A good scrub of the interior is next on the list for tomorrow

 

Installing some Sony and Pioneer speakers into the car from Horsham Auto Wreckers along with a Kenwood CD head unit with detachable face.

A new Battery has gone in ready as well

Have a small issue with the Ignition system … it wont start 🙁

I think its a problem with the starter solenoid and a few wacks with a universal screwdriver did not help it along either so may have to get an electrician out to look at it.

all thats left to do now is:

– remove the windscreen and clean out the edge rust

– rub out two small bubble rust spots on the bonnet

– refit the wipers and a new windscreen

– roadworthy and rego

 

so hopefully will have it on the road to do a few runs during the School Holidays….(money and Weather dependent)

then back onto the Blue Bitch now that the weathers getting better…

Rust repairs

Ok Connor and I started on the Rust repairs last weekend and got a fair amount done..

striped back around the rust holes in the door and sill and treated it with rust converter

we found that after removing the door mouldings that there was rust under them…water was trapped i think, which possibly explains why we found moss growing in one of them…

?????????????? ???????????

we then took off the front guards to have a look at them

????????????????????

sadly this ones toast…

I also removed the door and boot locks and patched the holes with metal filler and firbreglass
