7k to get it running
Jeez you lot down South do get fecked over don't you
Tell you what ,next time give me the £7k and we'll see what you can get at the end ....
I can't break the costs down to protect the innocent but it's not far off that .
No actually thats not strictlly true that included the purchase of the car replacement tubular exhaust manifolds and exhaust ....not standard, and not cheap either, but a little more power, larger diameter lightweight rims and tyres to replace the buckled rims that were already on the car, the cheaper more modern tyres being cheaper to replace than the standard 15inch fitment
so ongoing running costs will be lower, missing lights, carbs (two whole assemblies plus a carb rebuild) locks knackered alternatiors replacement head gaskets replacement upgrades three core rad, new twin rad fans, switches second hand dizzies carbs new clutch and gear linkage ......the list goes on yes the Rat was a dirty dead rat; but now she lives and thats what is cost me to get it to the stage its at now, not just running
. Thats why I would recommend buying new repalcement parts and not second hand things like alternators or started as the car is now on at least three of each ....so yes wasted money too thats what happens whenyou do it on the cheap, ok to get you out of troubke short term no no longer a consideration long term.
And that is doing 95% of the work myself or not at a garage
BigThanks to Dad and Mr Dell
PS and now the box needs attention to top it off ....but ill use this to my advantage
