    When you buy a crashed late model car to harvest its a/c system but you go a bit mad and take everything but the body!

    Man I'd love a gold one, that's a later one too, better engines and a/c too!

    Was flying it on the bike down to see the parade earlier when I saw this, just the one pic - and I had to flee

    Some lh2.4 wiring for the 940 t engine conversion non the grey one, extending the maf to go on right side of engine.

    And scored a nice wee Volvo R badge which is gracing my horn button which was a bit too plain!

    Having a bit of fun with the 75, fuel sender is toast !



    The tank has a whole heap of rust in it and varnished petrol, leaving some vinegar in it for a week and sunshine to see if it's salvageable. New ones are available but the quality is supposed to be iffy.



    And with a bit of trimming this Honda prelude spoiler will make a good ghetto spoiler







    Also slapped a body kit on the Datsun before it hits the container for Cork!

    I am uninformed about Bertone coupes, - so had a quick look online, interesting heritage.

    What's the colour of this new addition? got a bit of a purple hue off it
    Yeah I thought so too but it's the standard black, truck of the light on yer man's phone, lots of blue light LEDs in his shed.

    I'm relieved it's the later version of the orv engine, less inclined to have the camshafts eating into the heads!

    It's funny because at work I'm basically a project manager for software training and I'm all about sprints and that scrum/ agile methodology stuff.

    At home, I fricking shun the laptops/ tech and have little to no direction/ targets other than to have fun with it, there's probably about a weeks' concerted work to get the turbo coupe going. But God knows when I'll get to it lol


    Last night I got to do a mini-merican road trip with my brother in law,, ate some excellent bbq and picked up a dream car for a relative pittance. Twas a great way to refill the tank!

    This thread reminds me of one those good netflix series (any genre) you began watching and were immediately sucked in and follow it religiously - excited by new episodes/seasons etc, but at some point in the middle of the whole thing, you say to yourself "where are we in this, again?"
    At the same time you could jump in at any stage and enjoy it, as there's so much going on. In my case, I blame work, life etc for my memory lapses but anytime I get an update notification I know I'm going to be watching the 'prancing moose' (singular & plural).

    I welcome the new character

    Starts on fluid, needs pumps.

    I paid off my credit card, taxes are due too!

    Damn federal withholding bs!

    Might be buying a stopgap car for the brother in law to drive until he can find something newer.

    This popped up locally for easy money with working a/c. Figure we'll swap it's guts into the 75 coupe longer term.
