Hi Siert, good on passing inspection. At least a clutch cable shouldn't be too bad, though annoying timing for it to happen. I had to be towed home in my Porsche by my housemates Radiant red Pink fiesta when the clutch cable went on that, how embarrassing.
Have started to strip the interior out of the Pug to see the extent of the rust. This is the "unsatisfactory modification" ie rusty holes. Think he picked the wrong description.
Which when properly attacked have become...
Thats worse than expected, will continue investigation tomorrow to see how bad the rust around all 4 jacking points is (worse on rear jacking points).
I would have got further with that today but I took the Porsche up for MOT too this afternoon. It failed too, bummer.
I still have both pugs, you may catch the odd glimps of them in my 924 thread, but there has been no progress on them. I pushed them from my mind and have simply ignored them I'm sorry to say. They are looking very sorry for them selves. There is a chance that I'll pick up with the welding and recommission the blue one next year. I'm getting more confident at welding which does make it a little less daunting to repair, but it would require a lot of work.
Needless to say I will revive the thread if there is any notable progress.
