The job list so far

FOC floor pans
Engine main oil seal small leak so strip and rebuild
Transaxle leak from OS hub and a boot is leaking too. Just a failed clip by the looks of it
New hood on order from pro laminates to replace the original which has had a few repairs
Re wire the whole car. There is some pretty creative bodging in this area
Oil pressure sensor not switching to earth but circuit tests ok
Generator is not providing an output.....probably why they disconnected the generator bulb warning light
Body work and paint
Rebuild the front axle, although I may go for a narrow beam

Not a bad start point but for a car which passed a MOT in September it does not say much about the inspection.

Now I have drawn a wiring diagram for it the next step is to separate the body from the chassis

The back end was cut about so I got quotes to save it but itís just not economical. The option was to cut it to be more of a prowler style. These are the two versions and in all honesty I think I will glass the centre piece back in but I like both.

There's a post called 'How Do I post Images On Here' but I try postimages.org

Click 'Select Images' then click on the uploaded image thumbnail and then click on 'Share' and then copy 'Hotlink for Forums' which I paste into this box and Bobs your uncle.

Just thought I would say hi. Bought myself a GP Mk1 buggy. It needs a bit of work in my opinion so I will be stripping it down and starting from the ground up.  No doubt I will be after advice.

My first car was a Mk1 GP which I bought back in 1997 so itís great to get one again.

I paid a visit to pro laminates this week to see if they could make me a new bonnet as this one has a poor repair in the past.  Their tub mould measures exactly the same but the rear arches are wider than the gpís I have seen before. Was there a wide body version? Should get my replacement bonnet soon so I will feed back on it in case anyone else needs similar.
