4x4 TURBO RECOMMISSION , 19 YEARS LATER

by eugenemcgrath » Sat Feb 09, 2019 8:08 pm

Well after being in storage for 19 years ive decided to resurrect this old girl , Its an itch ive had for a while now and now is the time to give it a good scratch , I intend to recommission fully and will finish it off with a full respray . Structurally and chassis it is very sound , no rust at all , only a little surface rust under neath, nothing a wire brush and coating wont sort out , I want to keep it as standard as possible , maybe spray the wheels and gunmetal gray and add a very suttle front lip as the standard bumper always looked as if its missing something ( suggestions welcome please on this one, no fast and furious stuff !!) All bushes and the likes will need replaced too Id be open to suggestion which be the best route to go with these
I may be on here looking for advice , guidance even direction from time to time :lol: :lol: and any other suggestions , dont be shy

Hey there and welcome. Great looking car and brilliant that you’ve decided to put it back on the road. Would be great if you take pics as you move through it. As for advice, you’re always welcome to ask - bushes are not my area so to speak but one of the others will be along shortly I’m sure.
