When I got my mk1 repainted I searched everywhere to get a pair of clean steel wings, I even got them for a reasonable price

I’ve been looking for a set of steel ones for a while I have a couple of Toyota dealerships and they could get me a passengers side for 200 +vat but no drivers side. Then all the ones I came across where either rotten or in worse condition than mine so I’ve gone and ordered a set and I shall report back once they are fitted.

Wow a year on and the car is still not complete, a few thins popped up and got in the way of the car being finished such as getting married, moving home, promotion and a little baby daughter coming along and turning my world upside down.

So where am I up too, the car is now back together and moving, the new seat rail was made so I can sit in the car with a helmet on, ive just started on the exhaust and I have two options an single exit or a mongoose twin exit. I’ll decide which one is easier for me to make the b pipe for as i’ll Just be tacking it together and then asking someone whose a little better at welding to insure they are air tight.

Once that is done the car will be shipped off for its MOT to see what happens, for those interested i’ll Post up the MOT results when it happens .

It’s getting closer, today the car ran up to temperature today, it’s over fueling something cronic it is okish with a steady load being applied with minimal boost but as soon as you increase the load it is throwing out black smoke.

I’m hoping for a MOT come June time, I want to redo the wiring and tidy it up, plus I’m going to tidy up the paintwork and spray it.
