High mileage shocker - wonder if I'll crack 100k in it by the time fossil fuels run out. :)

For some reason the link is to page 3 of the build thread, and this site won't let me edit it?

Now the Cavalier is done, I can sort out the wheel bearing noise on this.

I changed the rear bearings the other day, but have the joy of doing the fronts this weekend.

Because it only went together a couple of years ago (and copper grease was used) everything came apart easily.

Sorry to resurrect this thread, enjoyed reading it.

 

Do you still own the car?

Still getting occasional use out of this from time to time

It really is a shame I don't get to use it more.  I've been thinking of selling it, but I know I'd regret it afterwards.

I'll be keeping a close eye on this thread. 8>)

Just re-read the whole thread, fantastic work, clearly you take pride over your cars.

So far, the only proof I was there for the show and shine on Sunday is this shot by Dean - I didn't have a camera with me.

New tailgate badge arrived today - a definite improvement on the one that's on there!

The old one had faded to orange/pink, and as the silver had worn off I'd re done it with vinyl wrap. It'd annoyed me for ages - so this new one is very pleasing!
