I was talking about this car whilst looking at a Gold Mk1 Rocco at Powderham this summer, the things i'd do to own this! So so nice.

Good to see a few of you still look on here.

So while the beam was dropped I had it powdercoated and the drum backing plates, everything else was just cleaned and refitted.

Image

Image

I also had the fuel filler neck powdercoated, it had a small amount of surface rust and the factory coating was inadequate for under the wheel arch.

Image
Also fitted a new exhaust backbox as the baffles had gone in the old one.
Image
All finished.
Image

All the rubber fuel lines replaced in the engine bay, newly powder coated cam cover and cambelt cover
Image

All back together and returned to storage until next year.

Those rear beam mounts :shock:

Brilliant work :thumbup: (I finally logged on to have a look!)

Next year on the road, a few shows?

And nice to see some people still using the forum, I'm guilty of not being on here in a while :(
