Next Friday my old web hosting contract lapses, and it's too expensive to renew. Sorry in advance, all the photos in this thread are going to disappear.  :(

Nice to see you're still around, hopefully as long as the software works as it should, all external images are cached, so we keep a local copy which means they shouldn't disappear.

Wow you are still around . Why did you stop posting on here Jayne ? Have you still got your mk3 and have you done much to it recently. I assume you have copies of all the photos yourself .

 

I have most of them. But many of the in-progress photos were posted at the time then discarded.

 

Work on PAL rarely stops... here is the last 12 months or so:

 

Engine rebuild after losing the water pump belt (and having a truck behind me so couldn't stop):

Complete gearbox rebuild with tasty rally ratios:

Replaced the Tex mirrors with genuine Mk4 door mirrors:

I abandoned the Wellers as I struggled to get them balanced well enough, especially when towing. I went back my Superlite replicas, powder coated white:

Having cooked on hot days a couple of times, the polycarb rally windows were replaced with original door drop glass:

Fitted a genuine South African bonnet as the fibreglass Aussie one warped:

After the "Minder" Capri caught fire, MarkyMark came to help and we finally finished the engine bay fire extinguisher system:

The millboard door cards got kind of saggy, so I made these custom door cards from checker-plate alloy:

It's a rubber paint, I thought it might help keep sound resonance down, and also be a bit softer if I catch my knee on it.

 

Thanks for the other kind comments.

Looking good :) 

I haven't posted on here for about a year either I guess, logged in and saw your post. :)

 

I wonder also how many build threads have gone due to photobucket after they started charging for the service. Joe was over today for a bit of welding/bacon butty and beer. good to get a bit of solid metal in it.
