      Thanks Greg Automotive wiring is weirdly satisfying.

      • Today I had some time to work on the body panels. Both fenders and rear doors got wet sanded and polished. I'm pleased with how they turned out

        The front bumper got also painted and will hopefully be fitted tomorrow.

        • Bumper fitted a couple of days ago with all new foglights, turn signals and grills. Looks a lot different now.

          My turbo also started to sound like everything was not ok so I decided to look a little closer. Some oil was present on the boost hoses and a clear axial play on the turbo shaft was felt so it had to come off. It was the first time I had to do it but wasn't too bad after all. Bottom coolant and oil return line had to be loosened from underneath. The allen bolts on oil return were old and awfully tight but they came out after a little fight. Turbo is now being serviced, some new seals & bolts are on their way and while at it I was thinking of replacing some of the vacuum and breather hoses.

          • Silicone hoses&clamps arrived

            They didn't have all hoses in black so I had to improvise. Some black cloth tape trying to make a vintage wrap look

            All breather hoses were renewed along with the crank pressure regulation valve

            Also new FAE after-run temperature switch

            The vacuum/boost signal hoses were also renewed. All sorts of weird stuff was found while at it

            Better

            I also got the turbo back and fitted. The conical filter was tossed and oem airbox was put back. I cannot believe how almost all of the turbo/by-pass valve sounds are gone now that I don't have the cone filter anymore

            • Yeah its amazing how much noise comes back out of the cone filters. Coming together nicely, making quick progress as ever

              • Thanks Greg, although I really don't know about the quick progress I'm happy that I finally got the bumper fitted. It was pretty much work involved to make everything fit nicely. If I were to do it again I would just purchase a used bumper and go from there.

                • Some goodies from Issam arrived a while back. New damper for future updates and also a new crankcase breather outlet

                  I also happened to find some heat shields when I went through some boxes in my storage. The bigger one is in decent shape but the smaller has corroded quite badly. I might have to order some stainless items from Alex in the future but I decided to clean these and fit them for now.

                  This is how they looked before

                  And fitted.

                  I also had a problem with my central locking pump running constantly after trying to lock/unlock my doors. There is a Y connection under the drivers seat which was loose. I fitted an Oetiker clamp to keep it in place in the future. Works now as it should.
