mk1 restoration

Post by unot190bhp on Tue Mar 05, 2013 11:12 am

okay guys so iv had my uno turbo for a few years now and have and had full intentions of restoring it until recently that is and im now goin to reshell it. kinda gutted to have to scrap the shell but its just to far gone i took all the horman kit off and the shell was a disgrace to say the least i have purchased a red uno turbo shell and am picking it up this weekend Very Happy from mintys mk1 from on here i have all the parts ready to go on so once i pic it up hopefully the rebuild goes smoothly and hopefully it can be mot ready within the next 2 to 3 weeks tops so here r a few pics of the old shell al put plenty new pics up of the new 1 once the build starts














the driver side was far worse when kit came off and u could wiggle the rear chassis leg around and i put my hand through both rear turrets lol off the scrappy with it Sad

its not all bad though all the parts r good and with a bit of elbow grease they will look great on the new car Smile


some of the stuff i have done that i have pics of






all keep the pics and the progress coming once the cars up

do you mean the white one with red abarth stripe?
the thing that spoilt that for me was the massive intercooler up front.

Cor she was rusty Shocked
Think it is for the best the reshell mate,but atleast it a reshell into another turbo shell.
I look forward to see it coming together,although i would be amazed if you can do it in 2-3 weeks!
