Hi All, just starting a build thread, well lets call this a clean the car and issue fixing/problem solving thread to start with.

Just purchased the car and already have reconditioned the steering rack, replaced the rear gear box seal, tappet cover gasket and done some minor adjustments, the car runs real well, starts first go, good clutch brakes and is in fair condition, my plan is to clean it right up and do some small modification, happy to leave the engine kinda stock maybe the usual extractors, weber maybe but all in good time, will be asking for help and may be able to offer some, I previously owned a series 1 910 in the Metallic green and a 4 speed for around 9 years so the car is not to foreign to me,

Car is now on Historic plates and they are so small that i have to make adaptor plates up to mount them :shock:

will put up some pics and hope to catch up at some meet some were



Regards Norm

Looks clean. Welcome to Ozdat! Glad there is someone else sharing their passion. Plenty of guy's still left on here who have a heap of knowledge to help out if needed!

Neato! Take care of that interior, brown is very very uncommon. Probably only seen 1 or 2 other domestic brown interiors in my few years of Bluebirds.

Looks fairly tidy! As always keep it out of the weather and UV and it should last you well! B-pillar trims and some other plastics just don't hold together and are virtually impossible to replace unless you get another mould made.

Happy Birding.

Hi Imago, you are correct with the interior colour very uncommon and yup the plastic do go brittle after a while and there are a few small parts on this car that will need to be changed already :?

thanks for the reply post guys,

Todays plan, take out the console and go over it, have a new gear stick boot and hand brake boot to fit at the same time, so looks like it has been out before and repaired with a hole lot of araldite, what do you expect for its age i suppose, broken on one side as well, 10 minutes to remove, 30 mins to pull apart, 2 hours to get all the glue off.

so don't think i can just go and buy a new one so a repair job will have to be done, has anyone tried plastic welding and will also have to repaint after patching the holes that were made to screw it all together, because of the colour i am just thinking of going all black, what do you think

well after some thought :roll: , I cleaned the console got all the old glue off it and put it back together, still has a few cracks in it but after it was cleaned up and some small painting done it came up ok, well it is never going to win any show and shine trophy's and it keeps original, didn't make it go any faster :D

also fitted the historic plates, had to drill some holes in the front plate to fit and with the back I got an old number plate painted the back of it and riveted the new plate to it, came up real nice

I great weekend was spent doing small things to the car and am looking forward to a good day out on the road with it

You could always re-glue the cracks on the back. Or use a plastic bumper repair glue on the front. Then sand them flat. Primer it then paint it again.
Colour of your choice or use a textured bumper paint?

Nice Bluebird Norm. You don't see many around anymore, let alone in that condition!
