so if its just surface rust, then spray this krust stuff on before respraying and it should sort it... or is there more to it than that?

Re: Bushboy's Uno Turbo Restoration Thread

yup grind or for light surface rust just a good wire brushing,you dont want to spray over loose rust as the primer is just sitting on top

Re: Bushboy's Uno Turbo Restoration Thread

even with loose rust the convertor EATS IT goes from whatever colour (often white or black) to the gunkiest brown you have ever seen, then just wash off with a bucket or hose ( water=rust ), does away with the need for wire brushs!!! still advisable thought to get as much off as you can before you kurust up

Taking out the glued on sound proofing to see whats underneigh. The passenger footwell brings up the work that was done for last MOT. pretty shody work if I must say myself. its already started to rust again and its a complete mess on the inside. underside of the car looks ok though.

The worst part ive found. Ive circled all of the major rusty bits. well, the parts that arent just surface. Its the passenger front footwell. part of the floor has come detatched from the sill from rusting. Also there are holes and rust running along where the floor is welded to the front. and again, an old weld has started to rust again.


Unfortunatly I didnt take anymore photos but I basicly ground all the rust I could back to bare metal, treated it with krust and then sprayed with anti rust primer. For the holes I did the same but ive also temporarily fibreglassed over to stop anymore water getting in etc.

Ive also found that the front windscreen is leaking , thats why it was so damp underthe carpets and why there is so much rust in the passenger footwell as thats were the leak is .

Theres a chip in the screen anyway (apeared last week) so i could get that sorted on insurance and ital fix the leak too

Re: Bushboy's Uno Turbo Restoration Thread

10/3/06

Not really a restoration report but more of a general thing Ive done today.

I decided to give the uno a mini service. did plan to do more but halfords and my wallet had different ideas.

Originaly wanted to renew the Oil, oil filter, coolant, fuel filter, sparks and HT Leads.

Halfrauds dont stock a fuel filter for the UT and they didnt have any UT leads neither My wallet decided againced the coolant too as its still nice and clean so it can wait till next week

Anyway, I did the oil, filter and sparks. Ive used 10w40 halfrauds oil (the recomended one in there little folder things) and a halfrauds filter. Ive used Bosch super 4 sparks.



I did the sparks first. They were bloody tight and pretty crappy looking. there was white residue on the outside of 2 of the plugs but i think they had just been over tightened as once i had got them turning, they came out fine by hand so cant have been siezed in etc.

Those are the old sparks. Not very healthy looking Although I havent got a clue how old they are

Next came the oil. sump plug came out easy enough and released a runny, thin black looking liquid ... all down my arm

let it drain for a bit and then removed the old filter and let that drain too.

As you can see, the oil isnt the healthiest of colours and is literaly black poor uno

filled up the oil and let the engine run upto temperature. I then took it for a drive and its running alot smoother. probably the sparks! hopefully new leads will make a nice difference. Ill get some ordered in.

Re: Bushboy's Uno Turbo Restoration Thread UPDATED 10/03/06

I could'a sworn i saw the car on ebay the other night?? U selling up Mate or you gona keep the car?
My guess is that you went to the ace the other night,saw how much everyone liked an old UT and you have decided to keep the beast Dont worry mate its part of the buzz of owning such an awesome car.
Hopefully next time i come to the Ace i'll get a chance to have a look at her. Was down and out with a hang over & some serious lack of sleep and flu this time lol And yeh interparts on hanworth road in hounslow is a great place to get parts for an UT, plus i get discounted prices from there too
