So the car went into for MOT finally, which if some of you don't know is our yearly inspection to check if the car is road worthy.
So I took it down to the garage and fit a few parts before sending it down for inspection only to have it come back with a failure and get told the car drives amazing but the shell is rotten and its not worth repairing.
They found rot inside the front two arches and the drivers frame rail, it had got bad but you couldn't see it cause of the underseal...
So I drive it back home doing a nice rolling burnout on the way back to give the car a final send off before hunting for another shell, the burnout really helped with me being a bit pist off which was nice.
for the all of 5 mins I got to drive the car I had a smile ear to ear every second though
Within two hours I found a new car about 30 miles away and arrange to view it the next day.
It looked very promising being a 1993 imported in 1997 with 1 lady owner before the current owners and recently only being put back on road because of being stood for a few years needing a new water pump and a new roof but had 10 months MOT left which was great!!!
So I througly looked over the car only to find two repairs on of the passenger frame rail which wasnt bad and one repair on the drivers side rear sill which was a good repair but needed better finishing however completly solid and not full of filler.
So I handed over £300 notes and he delivered the same day!
Say hello to Joules!!!
So then I suppose it was time for swapping parts over, amongst also packing and moving into our new flat and selling parts from the white one to recoupe money! (To date I have made £700+ on parts)
The rebuild went pretty smooth apart from the exhaust didn't want to fit the new shell due to Joules having a rear brace, however the exhaust was far gone and due a replacement I just didn't expect it to do it now but I bit the bullet and booked her in for a 3" Longlife exhaust for the 14th-15th of october costing me £700... but its covered for life and shouldn't hold me back power wise since I want to reach 400hp some day.
I'll make sure I get pictures next week once its done!
In other news I should be ordered a carbon bonnet around christmas and next year its bigger injectors, GT2871R and the other engine will get forged slowly plus billet oil pump ect.
