Oh wow, where'd you find that heap? I look forward to seeing it's revival.

A friend of a friend had it lying around for ages. Told me to basically take it away, so that's exactly what I did

Will do a little update tomorrow. Still trying to figure out this idling issue

Definitely thinking about the V12 repower but that's a story for another day..

Was meant to take after photos but forgot, so here's a big ass spider that crept out from the engine bay, just to keep y'all posted with the wildlife progress:

I've been slack as all shit, but I've made a promise to myself (ha) that this long weekend i'll get some shit done.

In the mean time, what's the bet this will pass a wof? it's not broken thru, just surface/bit crap.

And anyone in Central-ish Auckland able to swap some tyres over for me? box of piss etc

Go to bunnings and buy some rannex it’s phosphoic acid and is the simplest most effective product IMO (don’t trust those “primer” ones they have bad adhesion). Rub on with scotch brite and wash off with water. Poor mans version is white vinnager but it’s a less aggressive acid so takes more time and more applications usually.

Yea so I would probably to all that by hand, sand it with 60/80 then rust kill (repeat that a few times), theres probably holes in there and doing it by hand will take way longer but much less mess if you aren't doing cutty-weldy. Hit with some filler and maybe get some 2 part epoxy primer and brush it on for longevity of the repair (can get 1L from a automotive paint shop) then try match with some cheap silver (probably brush on again). Good little weekend project, many ways to do it.
