I can’t wait to get it back so I can sort the engine and electrics.

Good progress to report on the White Wolf today.
I popped into see how it was getting on and It’s almost ready for spraying tomorrow. Some final prep in the morning, then in for a new shiny coat of paint.
They’ve done a thorough job, repairing one driveshaft tunnel and replacing the other. They’ve replaced lots of rusty bits with new steel and given it a good coat of epoxy primer.

I’ve attached a few photos to show how thorough they’ve been.

More good news to follow.......

I’ve already looked ahead and sadly I’ll be down in Pompey that weekend. November is a goer though.

I’ll be there with or without the car. I’ve got to pull the engine and change seals, timing chain etc. I’m hoping the gearbox is ok. I’ve driven it at a snails pace and it selects ok, fingers crossed.
I Need to check the Turbo too. Hopefully it won’t be as bad as I fear.

Thanks Mal, it’s covered in dust but once the alignment is bang on, they’re going to wash, polish and finish boxing it off.
Thanks to Steve at Malbrads (Huddersfield) for the lower N/S wishbone.
I can definitely see a light at the end of the tunnel now.

It will be the spring before it’s back on the road.
I’ve still got a short list of jobs to do.
Fit an alarm.
Remove the engine for minor work and cosmetics.
Refit the rear section of the exhaust (ripped off by the thieves on a speed bump I presume).
Fit the flat front parts.
Fit new T16 springs
Check the turbo for wear.
Fit new headlining.
Fit new front screen.
Tidy and valet the interior.

It should be spring by then. I’ve really missed driving this car.

That’s what I’m aiming for Mal. It would be nice to turn up in a saab for a change :-)
