Forgotten Mk1 Uno Turbo

Post by Mk1Turbo on Wed Dec 11, 2013 12:02 am

Hi, just signed up to the forum as I was seraching google and came accross the boards, I thought it would be a good source of information and resources for future plans. I have attached some photos below of my brothers car which has been sitting since the beginning of 2003 after he moved away, the car has not moved ever since.
As the years go by I keep planning to do things with it and get it up and running, but then I just forget about it becuase I have my own projects to deal with. Anyway I did completely forget about the car until last week and I plan to have a good look over it again soon and try and get it out of the garage for a full inspection. We did try to take it out the garage several years ago but all the brakes were seized and even with a tow rope it just dragged the tyres along the ground, so we just left it alone. The engine does turn over, and we took some precautions some time ago to start it, but I think the fuel pump is also siezed. It has been sitting so long that it will definately need a full service before i'd even attempt to start it.
Body is still in really good condition becuase it has been garaged for so long, but it does need a front drivers wing (dented) and a passenger door as it's started to rust along the bottom.
