Ressurrection

So in August there is a show in Lincoln called Pistons in the Park. The organisers have created a stand for Guy Croft and his customers. This has provided some missing motivation to get the shed out and fix it up. Having sat in a damp garage for 7 years its looking a bit neglected. Nonetheless we are making some progress with it.

Front discs have been re skimmed.
Suspension has been sent to AST for adjustment.
I've added original lights back onto it.
Fuel reg needs a new brackets.
Fixed fuel leak.
Something is wrong with the clutch.
Something is also amiss with the PAS.
It has a ton of rust on it.
Still its started first time with a help from the battery booster - current battery is 10 years old.

Re: Ressurrection

Rich - great to see that the car still lives! Is it really 7 years!! I read on another post you were looking for panels - I donít have any but know a couple of people who do - Gary who gets on here as Sedici2000 (you can also fin him on "the bay") and another chap who is not a member here but I will happily speak to if you can let me know what is needed.

My standard Sedici is still going strong!

MIKE

Come to Spain and buy a whole rust free Tipo like mine, from 450Ä to 1000Ä.
OK, the steering wheel's not on the wrong side like those in the yUK, but it's worth considering and if it's only for racing ........
Some examples on this page:

They're getting quite rare here too.
