[Car_Upgrade] Yet Another Mi16 1.9 Build

Recommended Posts

Insurance update. The insurers have been good, They are willing to pay out on the agreed value, less my £100 excess and allow me to buy back the car, but there is a rub. I can have the car back to remove parts, but they want to be able to collect a rolling shell from me , and will not pay out until the rolling shell has been collected( cat B write -off so I see their point)

 So, guess who is a busy boy removing parts and, thanks to the star whose name is Speno, I can remove my suspension and replace it with some crusty old bits. The only other snag is my severe lack of storage space, so I am going to sell the engine and box, as I have another rebuilt box on my workbench and another engine in the pipeline that is worthy of the engine management system currently on this one. Fast forward, dear reader, to the ‘ for sale ‘ section

I hope it is only going to be rolling on 3 wheels following the accident damage that left it as such!

Good point. I did reiterate to the Insurers that as the car was far from rolling after the accident they could not expect its condition to have improved prior to its collection.

Back from cycling holiday in Scotland. Begun to pull the car apart ( sob) prior to the rolling shell being taken to the crusher . Not nice work.

It's been typical UK weather here this weekend; wind and rain. Zero bike km achieved.

Sorry about your rough weather. Glorious here! Shell now stripped and off to meet its maker ( well, a crusher) on Monday. Garage and loft now full of bits , bar an engine and box which will be in Speno’s 309 before the sun sets on Saturday.
