GTC now sold

Post by AJL Electronics » Sat Aug 27, 2016 11:25 am

This car is:

1980 GTC in yellow with brown interior and manual gearbox
Recently recovered seats (it appears), in nice condition.
Hard top
Soft top (in poor condition, but May be restorable with new plastic windows sewn in.)
Carpets have seen better days but are presentable.
Paintwork has some crazing and has faded. It appears to be a cellulose job, so may buff OK.

If you're having the chassis blasted, why not get it galvanized afterwards - would surely increase its value by more than the cost?

It is being blasted on the car, so can't galvanise it. The car has been sitting for many years ans although the chassis seems fine, it looks terrible with surface rust. The blasting will also allow me to check the chassis is sound, before painting.

Not sold, it is still at the blasters who seem to have Manyana disease! I will have strong words with them on Monday and repost as soon as it is here.

Car is now back. The blasters have messed me about continually and in the end I told them not to bother. However, the engine bay and lower parts were steam cleaned, so now it all looks a bit fresher in there!

The car was submitted for MOT and has failed as expected. There is a list of work to be done and the intention is to deal with it over the next week or so. I will also attend to the advisory list, so that it will be as good as it can be for the retest.


Parking brake: efficiency below requirements (3.7.B.7)
offside Stop lamp not working (1.2.1b)
Rear fog lamp does not emit a steady red light (1.3.2e)
offside Steering rack insecure (2.2.B.1a)
nearside Steering rack gaiter split (2.2.D.2d)
nearside rear parking brake recording little or no effort (3.7.B.6a)
Parking brake lever has no reserve travel (3.1.6b)
Advisory notice item(s)
offside Steering rack gaiter deteriorated (2.2.D.2d)
Nearside and Offside front seat belts slow to retract and webbing frayed
Surface corrosion on chassis outriggers
Exhaust rubbers splitting
Power steering pipes corroded
Nearside and Offside front anti roll bar link rubbers split
Nearside and Offside front upper wishbone bushes split but not resulting in excessive movement
Front exhaust minor leak at offside manifold joint
Fuel cap seal splitting
Offside headlamp reflector deteriorating
Cooling fan not cutting in

Thanks again, Alan

Whenever you like as I am here six days a week. Saturday I am in until 15:00 and although not this week, I am often about on a Sunday too.



I have done some of the jobs so far:

Fitted a new Otter switch for the radiator fan
Fitted a new filler cap seal
Checked the steering rack, MOT says it is insecure, but I can't see a problem with it. I am waiting to speak to the tester for clarification.

The "corroded" PAS pipes were just flash rusted after the steam clean. They will be flatted back and painted.

It looks like the SST will be sold, just waiting for the owner to receive a deposit from the buyer to finalise.

The SST is certainly sold, no problem with Fred.
And to hijack the thread, my GTC is also for sale - in France - because I'm fed up.

offside Steering rack gaiter deteriorated (2.2.D.2d) Can't see anything wrong with it, but will have another look later.
Nearside and Offside front seat belts slow to retract and webbing frayed Aren't they all? I will see if I have any better ones.
Surface corrosion on chassis outriggers. That was supposed to be done by the blasters, who let me down.
Exhaust rubbers splitting No they weren't, it was just weathering. Replaced anyway.
Power steering pipes corroded Not corroded, just surface rust after the steam cleaning. Will be painted.
Nearside and Offside front anti roll bar link rubbers split Picky, but they have been replaced with Polybushes.
Nearside and Offside front upper wishbone bushes split but not resulting in excessive movement Replaced.
Front exhaust minor leak at offside manifold joint Gaskets replaced.
Fuel cap seal splitting Replaced.
Offside headlamp reflector deteriorating Replaced.
Cooling fan not cutting in Otter switch and seal replaced.

Sounds Like you have a thorough MOT tester there !

tbh i don't fancy the idea of a chassis being blasted in situe. The media gets everywhere, and the hidden areas won't get don't.
