My White 4th Gen - update 15/08

Little update. Well I have had the past week off work, so thought I would put some time to the lude.

Firstly though, my younger brother has been crying out to have a little drive, so I took him down the local industrial estate for a quick blast last Sunday (once up to temp of course :D ):



Well there have been a few bits that I have wanted to do/check recently, for example, checking out the rust situation on the rear arches and sills and investigating the oil low down in the engine bay and on the transmission housing.

So, it was a case of giving her a quick clean...




...and straight in to the garage :)


First thing was to check the arches and sills. Well I haven't yet got round to checking the sills as the skirts are not coming off particularly easy and I am scared of breaking the clips Will be doing this soon though.

As for the arches, I regularly keep a close eye on them as there have been some very minor signs of rust coming through on the lips. So, it was a case of sanding them back again, treating with genolite and painting over again. Can't afford to get them professionally treated so, in the meantime, I am keeping on top of them as best I can :)

Next on the list was to check the oil seepage situation, so I have wiped off the excess oil on the gearbox housing and in the engine bay and will now wait and see if it reappears. It seems to me that it has occured from past oil changes when I didn't have a funnel and it has run down the side of the rocker cover and poured down the back of the block The car is losing no oil whatsoever and I know that the gearbox levels are fine from my last service. Will keep a close eye on this too though :)

So the lude has been in the garage all week and now I am reluctant to take it out as she is bone dry, the arches are looking good and she is cleaner than ever :D Therefore, I decided to try my hand at some garage photography again

Engine bay still needing some work, i.e. new cam cover and manifold (wink wink):

Re: My White 4th Gen - update 15/08

Thanks for the nice comments guys :)

94ludeguy - your lude is looking pretty awesome too mate. Mine was looking exactly the same as that 12 months ago. Just decided I wanted to adopt the pre-facelift look, so it was off with the clear headlights, clear bumper lighting, clear fogs and post-face nostrils/air vents, and on with the black, amber, yellow fogs and pre-face nostrils :)

eludeauthority - yep, we get rear wipers here but a lot of people (including myself) think they look smoother without, so many people get rid of them. I don't know about you guys but I rarely use my rear wiper anyway :) To complement this, you often see UK ludes without spoilers to add to the smooth look.

There are some fine looking ludes on here, some of which have given me inspiration :)
