Project MURX - The Recreation

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! Been popping on here for a while to have a look around, read this and that etc and have finally got myself a little EP82! Turns out it was someone called Tat that used to own it on here lol!... Picked her up the other night for ã1400. Tax runs out in a couple of days and MOT runs out in about a week. The bonnet had flipped open on the previous owner but not damaged the roof... Needs some new tyres and has a knock at the front. PAS fluid is leaking too so I need to find the cause of that! Never the less:

Also has anyone got any idea what this could be about? Middle of the windscreen. Quite curious!!

Got a few plans for the car but as for now it needs an MOT and taxing! Quite a bargain I think smile.png

MUCH LOVE! Adem thumbsup.gif

Bargain price you got there! Aside from the aformentioned faults it looks to be pretty much mint!

Seeing how clean this is makes me wanna restore my GT even more *sigh* :D

Welcome along mate :( Tom's kitted Black GT, yum :D:D

haha! Very subtle :p I'll have a look through your shop in a minute :p

Cheers for the comments guys. I just want to get out of work and go do something to it! I don't even know what yet lol! I just want to play :D . I'm going to take the ICV off tonight and give it a good clean. Idles normally when cold but when it warms up it idles at about 1.5k which is pretty annoying.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Glad this has stayed around on the forum, looking forward to seeing the progress on it :D

Also the green 8 sticker is something to do with it being Imported, a lot of Imports have them. Dunno what it means though?

Not much of an update but never the less! Got some new budget tyres to get it through the MOT later this month. Some admiral jobbies. Nothing special but don't say I don't give you all anything :D

nooooooooooooooo that sticker has been around longer than we have :)

It's still there really ;)!!! I just wanted to see how disappointed you were going to be when I actually take it off lol... I'll get plenty of dirty pictures of my pink pussy for you before I take it off :). lol!

Small update...

My insurance renewal is on the 23rd of this month (12 days away) and the car has some problems that I need to sort before the MOT or I need to try and find a nice friendly MOT station if we're catching the drift...

Steering rack is leaking fluid (I am currently trying some "stop leak" stuff and have a new rack lined up).

The ball joint on the top of one of the D2s has excessive play. (I'm going to try and wrap this in electrical tape for a firmer fit).

Split CV boot (easy fix)

And there is a small chip in the windscreen, right in the driver's eye line lol...

I've got 2 weekends to try and fix everything... Think I need "A FRIEND" :/

A quick update! Changed the steering rack today and put some standard suspension on the front of the car to get it through the MOT on Tuesday (top of one of the D2s is knocking on the ball joint and wonâ??t pass FO SURE!)... Got a couple of snaps during the madness mechanics session:
