Re: Fix or Scrap

The bonnet from a talk with the last owner was resprayed about 2 years ago so presumably it wasn't sprayed right its let the thing rust, and the whole bonnet is bad, even the prop that holds it up went through the bonnet, but the rest of the car is rust free.

But with 160k on the clock getting it on the road again is a waste of time, and besides i think its a much better use if i take it apart make some videos about fixing it, I plan to move onto the engine next week after i rally it a bit more, a good way to learn how to change the clutch in a FWD car as to date I've only changed them on a few suzukis and some tractors.
