You need to get some facelift headlights for it though....

That will be photobucket changing their hosting rules, I really do not have the time or inclination at the moment to reload them from elsewhere, I'm not sure what to do yet as it had completely ruined mine and countless other projects on forums.

Eventually after close to 10 years of ownership I have replaced the front drivers side speaker.

Unfortunately it never stops there, well the door card was off.









Now in body colour, passenger side to do next.

Door stay has had the rust removed and paint applied, and some sound installation placed on the inside of the door.









Installed speedo and tachometer polished aluminium covers

Got the passenger door trim repainted in body colour.

I thought I'd have a go at replacing the front wheel bearings and my favourite element of my car (rust) unfortunately has extended the time frame, so not wishing to do half a job I have started trying to eradicate the rust.



Bolts holding the existing bearing in would not move so ended up having to remove the hub.




Soaking in a bucket of bilthammer deox C, never used this before and makes things so much simpler.

Repainted and assembled ready to put back in once I sort out all the other rust.


Sorted out the brake calliper carrier whilst I was in there
