The whole vehicle is in bits now...cause we started this project a bit late,to getting ready for the big event ,the time was too short...(we started in Oct.2008 and the event will be in May 2009)we had 7 months only for the project...
We needed some help...
We found somebody who is very good to rebuild this kind of engine (this is 0.8 L 2 cyl V ! diesel engine).We cleaned all parts for the engine,bits and bolts has been galvanised,and we boxed everything and took it to the engineer.
The body panels were in bad condition,and cause we did not had special tools to do the bodywork,we decided to take it to a workshop (i did work there before),where they restore old vehicles,and they have all the tools to do a professional job...
Until they worked on it,we have been chase lots of missing parts for the vehicle,and cleaned,painted all other bits,getting them ready to refit.
The engine and gearbox:
Engine gone to the engineer,carry on stripping down the chassis,get it ready to take it to the workshop...
The chassis,the body panels,and all other bits has been sandblasted,and lots of them resprayed by me.
The rebuilt engine has arrived from the engineer...
Some bits get ready by me:
