Re: Meet Bumble-Bee

problem with these later cars is muck comes through the back sections where the reflectors are as soon as its been on the road a few days,i took mine out and gave them silicone hell to stop this but its still doing it grrrrrrr
oh and who keeps nicking these reflecters anyway as they arent chep at a 10 a go they cant fall out as they are held in with a speed clip so its got to be someone going round the country with a blunt instrument

Re: Meet Bumble-Bee

Not much has happened to be honest

But a little update
I've start doing some basic maintance but that quickly ended and starting a challenging myself with Rusty Stuck on Manifold Cover Bolts - which did come out :O
Only 1 slightly damaged nothing a good blast of heat didnt fix

So

Behind the front Grill, was expecting a heap of mud a cack
Not too bad tbh

and yes - copper grease is everywhere, when it comes off - it goes back on with some grease, as you never know when its gonna need to come off

Ordered some new stereo speaker adaptors, my speakers to go back in
Boot light mod is potentially under way soon too! with a nice neat adaptor

If I remember rightly, that guide doesn't actually use the connector: just joining the wires together.... Might be worth checking...!

Re: Meet Bumble-Bee

well a few small updates

My Auto door locks have started working -- made me jump at first

But i like it

Next
The Front door speakers were replaced with some Alpine E-type speakers dead cheap from scrappies
Work a treat

i'll put a link to the topic later

But major updates is the front brakes are sparkling new
Just i feel the pedal has gone quiet soft for my liking.....

Anyway
Pictures later

But next is subwoofer possibly been wired up
Boot light mod
and a replacement of brake fluid
New picks will be up shortly..

Ziggy

Re: Meet Bumble-Bee

I knew when i brought the car the pads did look low - not long left
it had very rusty disc's too

the pads cleaning the disc's up finished the pads off - oh well
So with an afternoon to work on it

I swapped the pads and Disc's and started again for safety Reasons

Looks like a typical case of a sliding caliper wearing harder on the leading pad (piston side)

So Next up - Horn Mounting bracket - meant to be a nice zinc plated look - but eaten away by the road

Typically - as i undid the gearbox earthing mount - the last clondike put it on SOOO tight the earthing strap moved with it - Snapped it clean off
So luckily i had a Alternator Style connector - so quick cut - clamp - tape up - its fixed
+ copper grease to stop it happening again
