Today I bought 2 new batteries, engine oil, new Tectyl to keep it 100% rust free under and greese for the dors. Also I ordered dieselfilter ald oilfilter that will arrive early next week.
Tomorrow a recovery car is coming to pick the car up and drive it back to my place I will start by removing 25 year old dust ang shit on the car, and then I will take the weels of and clean everything there. If the weather is good, I will also remove the old tectyl under, and take new on. One brake pipe is broken, so I will make a new one in the garage, so it doen'nt leak anymore.
So in lunchtime tomorrow, the car is finally at my parents place where it can be for a week. So I have only a week to make the car run as is suppose to
We have the same as your MOT. We have to show the car everey 2.years It looks like both of the cars listed here miss the MOT test. The MK2 looks original. New paint and no rust is says. It is not complete inside. It's missing some interior.
Mk1 has been used for some Tv and movies here in norway, It starts, but needs some "attention" is says
My car is registrated as a "Engine tool" so I don't have to show it for MOT, and I don't have to pay tolls when I drive around

There both not as it came from factory,so they will look different to yours,just dont recognize the front,but feel it may be fitted upside down on transit to what it was originally fitted to,but I don't know what that was/is!
I have changed the timing belt now. Also, it dripped water down on the car for over 20 years , making the chalk penetrate the paint. I tried to polish it away , but it was hard and set deeper than I had thought. Had to grind the chalk away with sandpaper (1200) but some places the paint is gone now as well.
I don't think I will have anything in the back, so I don't need to protect it The plan is to keep it as original as I can, with as low mileage I can. Maybe it sounds boring, but I have nothing to use the car for
