Hi all after taking my pug off road for some tlc 10years ago then getting made redundant shortly after and some would say even worse my partner getting pregnant haha, I simply could not afford or have the time to do what was needed, which at the time was abit of rust on rear arches, a paint and trim freshen up.

Having left it so long there's now alot more work that needs doing :(

That's a pretty good basis for the restoration.

 

I would have given it a good wash first though :).

 

As for the calipers, strip them down, sandblast them and repaint them, inspect the pistons and replace the seals.

 

Is the engine a runner?
