RATS' Test Mule

Postby clee » Sat Jul 20, 2013 12:38 pm

Thought it about time I got a car on the road for me :lol:
Non runner from Mr Smiff that turns out not at all that bad :wink: A few tweaks and hey presto up she fires 8)
Solid but tatty with A/C and leather .A/C will most probably be stripped out along with the leather .
Needs a few new bits ,alt ,waterpump etc etc but hopefully won't take that long to just get MOT'd for now and then use for test and tune .

Vid ...sounds a bit ropey but think it's the pump and alt mainly .Good pressure and no smokes ..

Naive question... how easy (or difficult) would it be to retro-fit A/C to my car?

Not an easy task .Talk to Jon Viola about his .
Most of the parts are not really worth keeping and best renewed with modern but there are some veryGTA specific bits you will need from the old set-up .

Hi Lee

What are the plans for the leather? I may be interested, is it in decent condition?

Cheers

Provisionally going in the grey/silver one behind ...Subject to approval ...It's 20+ year old but in good condition I would say with a few marks here and there but no major damage .
I'm asking 350 for it which I think is fair ??

350 sounds fair (I have got 200-450 for leather in the past).

Looks a nice enough GTA, I'd keep the A/C if your ever thinking of punting it on in the future as it's a desirable optional extra working or not especially to the Aussie's :wink:

I'm not going to be stripping out the blower etc etc unless someone REALLY wants it enough to pay the proper rate :wink:
I will strip off the comp/bracket power drain system ....Seal it up and poss rempve the rad .Depends how it goes when I really get started and shake it down .I could really do with doing as little to it as poss initially .

I'm not letting on what was wrong with it ,need to keep the illusion of GTA god but Tony knows ....... :lol: :wink: :oops:
