Found a mint passenger side weather seal.

Also picked up a spare fuel tank. Needs a fair amount of work to get it decent. Possibly a little summer project.

Well done all round! I am thinking my petrol tank is going to need love as I filled the tank up recently and now It smells of petrol with the cap closed!
 
Got all the parts I need for the radiator / cooling system overhaul.

This is from a newer car however was going to use it to separate the fuel lines on the bulkhead. Mine are currently zip tied 🫠

Also picked up a spare tank. Which I hoped to restore however it looks pretty rough inside. Any thoughts on it?

Drivers seat needs a repair. Sooner rather than later.

Also found this for £5 on FB marketplace. Wrong colour for the Mille however thinking to use it as a wall / door guard in the garage.

If the weather stays decent I’ll crack on with the rad swap this weekend.
 
Few jobs ticked off.

New boot strut. The boot pops lovely now!

Rust converted wax oiled a number of areas.

However the main job was to get the LED indicators installed. Very happy with the results. They are way brighter. Next up is sidelights.

What's the rust converter like, any good?

Your doing a great job, I am slightly jealous!
 
Few updates in one here.

Seat repaired.

Took the interior carpet out to assess rust situation.

Not terrible for 24 years. Going to get these bits cut out soon.

Also sorted the LED sidelights not working. Turned out to be a bad connection on the headlight plug (after blowing 10 fuses trying to diagnose it) 🤣

New drivers door seal (thanks Pumashacked!)

Replaced the gear selector bracket with a nice billet version.

Picked up some ST150 front calipers. And gave them an overhaul.

New pistons, seals, sliders and bleed-nipples.

Just need to figure out some discs and pads for them. Also got 4 new carrier bolts.
 
Then tackled the cooling system. I’ve had a small leak for a while. Guessed it was the rad. Turned out to just be a hose (thankfully)

Had a silicone set to go on anyway so got stuck in last weekend.

Swapped the expansion tank too while I was there as the old one had some scorch marks from a small bay fire. (Before my time)

Bled the air out. (Thanks Pumashacked for all the tips!) and thankfully no more leaks!
