Although I've not seen the doors, bonnet, boot lid for a while, I'm assured these will also be ready to be undercoated by then too.

Hoping I can get engine to the point of being ready to reassemble shortly as well!

So where was  I?

Oh, yes, my body guy decided to move house in late February, so nothing done since! He was also going to get the doors back from the guy who was to weld the small cracks in the aluminium, but guess what, they haven't been touched either, so hoping when I phone tomorrow to go visit, some work will have been done.


Now the engine.....thats another story........

The engine.........

In the last few weeks we have managed to remove the 3 seized liners from the block by heating the block to expand it around the liners , unfortunately much time was wasted trying to free the pistons out of the last 2 liners to save the liners for reuse, however this was not possible and liners had to be split to release pistons so that we could salvage the con rods without damage, this we were able to do successfully as seen in first couple of photos.

The 4 used liners where masked up and shot blasted as they were corroded externally , these where then sent away with 2 new liners to be bored to suit the new pistons which are slightly oversized, we then had the problem of getting the correct "O" rings for the liners , these where also sourced and are now ready to fit , much time has been spent cleaning out the corrosion in the block , if the forum can recall we managed to get away with only one stud shearing off and a banjo bolt into the water jacket shearing off, even though 2 hours were spent trying to remove the banjo it finally gave up and snapped, it took a total of 4 hrs  (2 men 2hrs) to remove stud and banjo without damage to the block, still unhappy with the corrosion in the block we decided to mask it up and shot blast it , then a crack was discovered which has now been repaired. This has now been milled to accept the new core plug.

The block will be lacquered, remainder outer parts cleaned up/blasted and rocker covers wrinkle finished as original and indeed to add to the aesthete of an Aurelia V6.

Everything going to schedule this week will seen the start of the rebuild, indeed I will visit James's in his workshop on Friday to be present for part of the same, to say I'm very pleased and indeed excited at this moment is an understatement!
