Now I've got things in order I can start putting it all back together, although I'm still coming across mislaid items, not lost.... just mislaid!  Grin
The intercooler shroud evades capture at the moment..

Will it be finished in time for the AGM?
Can't wait to see it finished.

I'd say it's pretty unlikely unfortunately.
Still a list of jobs to do that will take time.
Interior needs sorting out, seats to fit which I haven't got back yet..
Door frames need painting black.
Boot area needs refitting.
Sill covers, side strips, etc etc.
There's still quite a list of "little" jobs to do, which take time to sort through and make good rather than just throw stuff together that looks rough or doesn't work!
Then of course it needs an mot... And I haven't started the engine yet..

Another job ticked off the list today.
A while back I had to fix the rear spoiler, all the mounts were rotten and useless so I made new ones and bonded them in
It's been painted for a while now so just needed a flat and polish then prep for fitting.
Some 2mm self adhesive neoprene foam sheet was cut to suit for the contact points to meet the bootlid. This is waterproof but also squishy enough to make up for any undulations in the bootlid or mounts.
Very happy with the results.
The mounts fit lovely and straight, it's not under any stress so will sit OK. Rubber grease on the studs with domed nuts so in theory it should be removable in another 10 years if needed, rather than the studs or mounts rusting any.
Two pics to show how my crappy mobile phone camera doesn't seem to work with red cars!  Grin

The side repeater indicators in the front wing had connections that looked a bit poor, they often give trouble with intermittent lighting or fail completely.
Being as the connector is behind the wheel arch liner they're a pain to get at so best to do something with them now I figured.
They could have been cleaned and even new terminals fitted but this should be a better solution.
Waterproof and sealed connections soldered into the loom with heat shrink then loom tape so should be fine for a good few years yet.

Well, another setback now overcome.
I did have the engine running a few weeks back and it ran very well indeed, apart from a blow at the exhaust manifold to the head.
Being upstream of the turbo using exhaust paste is not a good idea, or any sealant really as any extra residue would be fired straight into the turbo innards.
I had noted that the flange was a bit pitted but had hoped it would be OK, the gasket seal around the weak spot.

It wasn't easy to find someone to skim the face due to the awkward shape, getting it to sit level for the milling machine to make a few flat passes meant a jig being fashioned by the guy who eventually agreed to do it after 3 or 4 guys said they couldn't do it.
Got the manifold back this week so it's now got the turbo back on.

Engine all back together and running well, just a few details to finish off.
Finally got the refurbished wheels back on, very pleased with the way it's looking now.
The black door frames and weather strips I hope to paint this next week.
Once the side skirts and rubbing strips are back on then it's onto the interior...
Sunroof needs swapping out for a better one as there is some rust on the glass panel surround. Also the roof lining needs retrim ming whilst I'm at it..
Once the seats come back then it won't be far off done at last, but expect that to be another month or two away..

I see you have headlamps with wipers. Do the motors still work of have the gearboxes rusted up as they usually do?

Purely decorative Frank, as you rightly say they're seized.
I did contemplate stripping them down and getting working but didn't bother, may look at doing so in the future but always more pressing jobs to attend to.
To be honest the ones I had on my old Dedra were pretty ineffective and often snagged themselves on the bonnet stops so I'm in no rush to set them going, but they look nice!

When Frank and myself checked them on my first Dedra a 2 0iese  the gears inside the motor were real nasty  ,rusty and worn, and mine used to wave at me over the bonnet, later ones had a bracket to stop them doing so, best ones were on my 1994 Dedra ls, that had high pressure jets rather than wipers.

I suspect the seal on the wiper spindles wasn't up to scratch allowing water into the gearbox which, having no drain, led to rusted solid gears. A resurrection would probably involve remaking the gears in something more durable or less perishable.
