Had the car sat in the office parking for a few weeks.
1 because i was cought up with work and
2 i have to take the car home(kandy) to start working on it.
Driving this death trap was out of the question. Got it towed from Colombo to kandy( boy it wasn't cheap).Got it home. My parents thought i bought a decommissioned hearse 🤦♂️🙆🏽♂️
Like i said before this is my take on restomod lets see how many of you can spot where this is heading towards 😉.🥺
The more i look at the car the more i find rust😅. Someone has tried to repair the chassis rails and had done a pretty bad job. It'd been welded with an arc welder 🤦♂️ අයියෝ සාන්ත !!!(check the photos).
I'll be taking the engine and transmission out next week to give it a once over.And also to check where my 2nd gear has gone.Btw i found the culprit behind the sloppy gear leaver.Also I've got a surprise for the build. Will post it if everything goes smoothly as planned.
This is how i plan to break the build out.
Rust repair tinkering and paint will be done by someone other than myself. Dont worry im definitely getting rid of that horrendous orange colour 😅
Drivetrain, wiring suspension will be done by me.I dont claim that i know everything and im not a "car guru". I know I'll make a heap of errors along the way. So please feel free to give your thoughts too. Im not hear to judge anyone but simply to build my perfect car.😊
I get to work on the car only on weekends because I work in Colombo and car is in Do please bare with me 🙏
At the moment car is sitting at home while I try to find a brave enough soul to start the rust work.I'd appreciate If anyone can recommend a tinker around kandy area that could take this job on without breaking the bank.
