Teds Project Ke70 ~ The Blue Car

Recommended Posts

Like a blast from the past ^_^

 

Little blue beast lives on as my daily, end of this week she will have clicked over 10,000 kms !

 

Sir Med-Man saved my ass a few months ago discovering a hellish intermittent fault - wet weather, car would not start. Elec Fuel pump would not kick in.

 

Any guesses ?

 

lol.

 

Wet weather I would have the front demister on with the blower fan on low. Turns out the variable fan speed resistor Red/White wire was mistaken for a solid earth.

 

Sooo... everytime the fan was on 1, the car would not start. Car broke down in my driveway 5 odd times over the years.. once running, was ok, just not enough to start the wincam as my brother calls it.

 

Apart from that *TOUCH WOOD* it's been a turn key reliable daily that sings to 8-thousand quite happily.

 

I won't be selling her any time soon. Been collecting too many new bits.

 

Maybe part of her will be up for sale though..

 

he he he

 

:devil:

So I found this thread just a few days ago and read the whole thing and was blown away by the commitment and incredible build that has been done. And then, I happened to be in a part of town I've never really been to and look what I find. How incredible that I get to see this masterpiece after a just a few days of reading about it.

Also sorry for the crappy iphone photos.

Fantastic!!

 

I'm now using 67Rolla as my daily. It's a great feeling to finally get some use out of her!

The stone chips bugged me at first but I've accepted they will happen... badge of honor for being driven!

what grade of sandpaper did you use to strip it to bare metal?

It was stipped chemically with regular household paint stripper. Probably hit it with a 60 grit orbital sander disc after the paint was removed.
