After some time thinking i have decided to scrap the 1.0 litre engine and im hoing to go for something bigger and better? 

 

Yesturday I worked abit more on the engine bay and started cleaning ip some of the rust on the inner arch

 

the hole for the indicator wire where the battery tray is kept getting larger and larger hahah, the battery tray has some S*** welding done to it and has been filled with bathroom sealer and left to rust poor car could see the inside when i reach solid metal.

Easy to remove the windows with two people as I have dropped the glass on my own before.

Just peel back the rubber by hand and tuck it through the frame working your way around then the window will come out :)

Have one peeling and pushing inside and one out side holding it so you don't drop it.

I also took the slam pannel off to have abit more access to the engine bay20170708_103849.thumb.jpg.3da602674b2f12b081cb929dac77a78d.jpg

Also have decided i will be removing the top part of the fire wall plate thing and just putting a strut brace so it gains abit of the strength back
