Don't think I've posted previously about this one, apart from in the Workshop area. It's red, has done 144k miles, is in reasonable/good condition and is so much fun to drive, although it hasn't had a great deal of use over the past couple of years. That's probably because it hasn't needed attention & I've been doing a lot of work on my 96 stroker.
It's had a cracked windscreen since I acquired it several years ago & I've now decided to have it fixed. It's booked-in to a local bodyshop for mid-Feb, new screen & fitting kit are on order from Tommy & I'm lòking forward to watching it happen. The small hole in the bonnet will be fixed at the same time & then it'll go to Tommy in Yeovil to have the ACC fixed. I think it 's worth the expense as I've decided to keep it for the foreseeable future & I'd rather it was in good condition.
Everything else works fine. It has had a habit of cutting out suddenly when being driven - an ignition/electronics problem, I reckon - & after much head-scratching & attempts at diagnostics, I think it could be, quite simply, positioning of the immobiliser fob over the ignition switch. The immobiliser receiver gizmo is under the trim just behind the switch &, if the fob falls to one side, the engine cuts out. There's also a Cobra alarm system, which has to be left on otherwise the engine won't start. Too many wires all around the car for it to be removed or isolated!
Photos may be posted once I've worked out how to do it "properly" - must read the instructions.
