'66 Anglia

Post by Langlia » Sat Apr 23, 2016 8:11 pm

Hey guys, thought I'd also put my build thread over here as well. Have one running on 105speed too.

Here's my car when I first got it, stripped out the interior and pulled the motor.

Battery rusted out the tray so I cut that out and had to also repair the front crossmember which was extremely rusted as well as the frame rail and the roll bar mount.

Fixed the front hole where the bumper slots through, passenger side door was extremely rotten.

Picked up a 1600 X-Flow from Vancouver Island

Image
Image

Door back on, got the lines all sorted. Chrome trim not going back on so the moulding clips are all gone.

Image
Image
Image

Picked up Cortina GT brake calipers, hubs and rotors, also have MK2 Cortina Struts. Picked up a pair of 13x7s locally as well.

Image
Image
Image

Boot Lid all cleaned up. Have to replace some rotten parts on the inside.

Image

Front coming along.

Just got my seats recovered and springs fixed.

I was round to see langlia a week or so ago, and saw the car.
He has done a very nice job on it, body work is looking very good.

Cheers,
Dave.

Haven't updated this in a long while.. Can't believe it looked that way when I first got it. :shock:

Sanded down, painted again. As perfect as I'll be able to get it this time. A few passes of the 2000 grit takes out any dust and the most minimal orange peel.. Polishes up nicely.

Suspension going back in.

Got a few things on order. Motor going in on Friday.

Thank you!

Got to the front brakes, Got Copper/Nickle pipe from Burton Power. Never done brake lines before, but this still is super easy to work with, bends nicely, don't need to have the tool clamped into a vice to flare the ends, just do it right at the car. Forgot to slip the fitting on once or twice, left a little extra each time just incase anything needs to be re-done.
