So, early on Sam decided that instead of replacing parts left right and centre he was going to restore the original parts. Sam’s a big fan originality in cars so always prioritises trying to keep original components.
So Sam began a strip down of the engine removing all rust dirty parts, this had to be done regardless for the gasket changes so off he went!
Rusty parts were wire wooled and then painted black. Other parts were thoroughly degreased and then treated to some quick detailer! The parts came up a treat and looked so much better!
