Its been a long time coming but im starting to get stuck back into the restoration as time and money permits..
This weekend ive been restoring the dashboard and Plastics of the car including the centre console. Still a bit to go on the dashpad but it should look a treat once finished.
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.
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…
Just had a stroke of luck on eBay ….
and oooohhh it has an intact dashboard 😀
Have to arrange to pick it up now and will add more photos then ….
found some more rust when we removed the tail lights…oddly again on the driver side and in behind the light fitting itself, which was really weird cause the rubber seals on the light were in good nick
so we sanded it back and prepped it with rust converter as well
Pulled off the Bumpers as part of the prep of the body and found they have surface rust pretty bad on the backs of them
Im not sure how to treat them so open to suggestions
