They are cheaper than paracetamol!

Re: I'm Back With The Panda 750L 1991

Hello and welcome back to Panda ownership! Think as I'm very new to Pandaing all your previous work predates me, though I may have come across some bits and pieces trawling through old posts! I think I may have considered buying this car around March last year? Not too sure but there was definitely a blue 750 up near Glasgow, my sisters other half was going to have a look at it and if it was a goer drive it to their place in the borders for me to collect at a later date. In the end I went with a 1000cc closer to home as I am planning a couple of very long trips in it.

Great it was given to a good home, looks like it needs quite a bit more work than mine but a great little car. I've nearly finished welding up the inner rear wheel arch on mine which had a similar issue to yours, though had not spread quite as far. So far it hasn't seemed a difficult job just a but alkward and time consuming!

Looking forward to hearing more and checking out your youtube videos.

Phiz

Re: I'm Back With The Panda 750L 1991

the site isnt letting me upload photos to the gallery for some reason, so I will post them later, for now here is the video.

I started wirebrushing and hammeriteing today using my neighbours ramps which he kindly loaned me.

I have done the chassis and boot floor underside in blue smooth hammerite which is actually a pretty good match, it still had the original blue on the box section behind/above the tank!! It also has the original fuel tank straps, which ive never seen on another panda in Britain, so I painted them too

Re: I'm Back With The Panda 750L 1991

Changed the oil and filter today (Castrol GTX was on offer ) Nothing remarkable about the procedure, old filter came off fairly easily and the leak has been sorted it seems so I was right about the filter casing being the problem Got to say I am loving how easy every job has been on this car so far
