Two sundays in a row.. wonders will never cease.
Got the heater box, part of the wiring loom and the water pipes out today. again about 3 hours but worth it. The only downside is the neighbours keep mentioning the trance / dance / hip hop music that is eminating from my garage every sunday now.....
They don't come along too frequently for me these days but
today was indeed a good day. You know like one of those days
where nothing goes wrong, when all nuts and bolts come out
clean, when photographs and writing notes all come together,
when tempers are not frayed, skin is not lost, no resorting
to hammer spanners and there are copious cups of tea from
Well today has been one of those days. Got all the wiring
disconnected in the engine bay, the exhaust and manifolds
off, and started on stripping out the brakes. The osf door
hinges came off ok and I even got the carbs off before the
light faded. It doesn't seem much for about 6 hours graft
but all on my own spanners take juggling when you are trying
to loosen screws that are nearly 40 years old....
.....Tomorrow is another day of course but I have really enjoyed today and think I'll have another go tomorrow. The engine bay is more or less ready to drop the engine out of the bottom now so i think i'll put the car up on stands tomorrow and get to grips with the gearbox / propshaft nuts and bolts etc to disconnect the prop from the rear axle.
I need to make a space frame from metal I have to support the body so I can move it about before i send it to the dippers and also whilst I have bits welded so whilst under the car i might measure that up.
ain't life grand when it all comes together...........
