Couple of my previous projects
« on: March 27, 2009, 18:03:20 PM »
The Fiat 500 was built from the ground up, brief spec, 5.7 litre smallblock holley carb and NOS, Very modded 700R4 trans with Manual / Auto valve block, BM Slapstick Shifter.  Modded Cortina front end, Cossie diff & Shafts, homemade spaceframe all steel modded body.  Used to drag race it, was very silly  

The Saff Cossie was bare shell rebuild, 24v BOA, BOB cams, de cat, exhaust and intake mods, 4wd MT75, Cossie Interior, A/C and heated screens, XR4x4 running gear with lower Koni Suspension all round.

Been loads of other projects over the years, including boats, jetskis, bikes, and quads lol
Do absolutely all work in house meself  

Sold these 2 a while back, building new workshop....then onto new project.

Currently driving Scorpio Cossie Estate (broken at the mo)  ,  and Landrover Disco

Use photobucket Dave.

It's free just register then follow the instructions.

From there it's easy to link to the pictures so you can use them on any forum.

Saffy looks nice

Thanks Lee,

Will try and get the pictures on soon but am 2ing and froing Dartford to Scotland at the moment and the last 2 trips had problems with the Land Rover 300 TDI Disco, first Alternator then coolant loss, fitted a brand new head (ouch) etc 2 weeks ago.  Now in Dartford for 2 weeks, got here last night, went out today in Disco and noticed bad smoking from cold, sort of bluey grey, goes after a mile or so, but it aint pulling right.  Dont know if anyone here is good with TDI's but I'm thinking poss turbo cos of all the coolant that went thru it 3 weeks ago lol or maybe Injectors.  Its not using any coolant and seems no more oil than usual, but summat is definitely wrong...getting to the point I don't trust it to do the journey anymore. Cant afford a new one at the mo but anyway its one of those motors that has had so much done to it I may as well keep it and fix current prob lol. I gotta go home 2 Scotland for Easter in it then back down here week after, so guess I'll have to try and work it out before Easter

Used to live on Temple Hill 10 years ago then moved to Swanscombe for 9 years, now live in N.W.Scotland.  I'm down here for 3 weeks working in Dartford building all the Auto Boxes while me mate's away on holiday in Canada.

Sold the Saff 5-6 years ago, but it was well known around the area and instantly recognised by the local plod who tried in vain to catch it on more than one occasion lol.  Not that I advocate that sort of thing at all occifer !!!!
I had the Black Pontiac Firebird at the same time, only sold that last year just before moving.  The fitter at the gearbox firm has it now and loons it sideways around Dartford lol  

Regards Dave
