      And after a few tyres and bits I had in stock oh and welded the inner and outer sill ends up she was motd and back on the road where she deserves to be. Had to run through injection system and set it back to factory as idle valve was seized solid and someone had adjusted it on metering head rather than fix it properly . Emissions where 0.02 lol

        I bought an exceptionally tidy 80 saloon to sell and make a few quid. They don't sell as easily as i thought and I didn't make any money but my god I enjoyed fixing and driving it.. Make sure you don't build a garage to keep it in..

          Got 2 people that want it that pop into work so fingers crossed but after driving it for the day yesterday and my girlfriend even mentioned we could sell one of the day vans we have a use for camping it instead for winter as it’s only £128 a year insurance fullycomp and I get free petrol weekly .

            I'd go with that reason for keeping it !!

            That'll be quite a rare car?

                Well Thinking steering wheel is a yes but compomotives are a step to far as need to change the hub flanges . Got a couple nardi steering wheels somewhere but found this bad boy instead no idea what it came off ?

                    Well the engine is a bit underpowered and without 5cyl hard sell. Maybe in 5 years, once coupes will raise in price, we will see some price raise for 80q salons but so far even in Latvia where they are most common they don't sell for more than 800eur.
                    If shell is in good condition and you can have some fun with it keep it. Otherwise based on your situation any costly fixes means sell. Also nardi wheel look in really bad condition.

                            Good question re tire sizes. Would european sedans with original 15" wheels have come with either 195/60-15 M + Ss or 205/50-15 summers?

                            However weren't the competition's wheels 16"s just les mêmes que le cabriolet?

                            https://www.automobile-sportive.com/...ompetition.php

                            Or perhaps you meant another sort of wheel?

                              Yeah think your right , I ve got different sets than that and all 15" but I ve got enough bits to change it up a bit including lights and bumpers and fingers crossed we ve sold our house this week so funds will be ok for a bit . Seems strange to just paint the spoiler to fit when I could do bumpers at the same time , need a wing really though .
