    Just want it on point Maurie for the next owner.

    No surprises now.

    I have spent my hard earned dollars getting it 150% and if I cannot get $10k when I readvertise it this weekend, then the KIA will be sold ASAP and I will drive this for another 5yrs and just accept it is what it is !!

    No new car for me next year because I couldn't stop fucking with the old one !!!

    At least I won't be washing parts in the dishwasher anymore...

    Knowing the work and parts gone into this car I find it hard to believe you cant get $10k. You need to get this thing in a studio mate and have some professional photos done.

    Raise its profile on social media groups and take it to some car shows. Its a work of art.

    Looking for a grousse photographer thanks to Col's advice, then she is going back onto Carsales and Gumtree.

    I forgot to get pwr steering fluid today, so I just need to bleed that... hook up vacuum to the booster/ fit the fans / rad overflow and purge the cooling system!

    It will be running by lunchtime and ready For Sale and test drive straight after !!

    Your car, or at least your engine bay Daz is seriously a showpiece. Its a shame Ford didn't have the foresight to paint the bay the same as the body.

    Cheers mate... Menace 1 I painted the engine bay and you can see the difference in 10yr old paint on the guards...

    Only way this one will get the bay painted is if I keep it and I have a minimum of 12 months trouble free motoring out of her.

    Well that didn't last long.

    First start up this morning and NO oil pressure, after an absolutely fabulous evening getting reaquanted with it again giving Chris from Bluepower a step by step account of what I was doing via the phone.

    This afternoon after changing oil and filter still no pressure and nothing obvious ?

    I will be putting a borescope up the plughole on Monday to look at the pick up rube and if that isn't blocked, then the $1000 ATOMIC pump modified by the Phantom Muppet will be going in the bin.

    James suggested I throw a cover over it and forget it for a while, well it looks like I'm heading to Darwin on Monday so I just might do that...

    To be continued...
