Yes it's the only area where the plastic wheel arch liners aren't protecting the inner arches and like you said it's a moisture trap between the two sections. On a positive note I did get round to fitting the front wiper mechanism & motor last week so as I cross one job off another gets added to the list!

Thanks Kev, your words of encouragement are much appreciated  Cheesy. Here's a of pic of the same area after I'd ground out all the rust & prepped it ready for welding.

After making the repair section out of some good quality mild steel, I tacked it in position then fully welded it  Wink.

After a coat of zinc primer, some seam sealer & a couple of coats of Hammerite's finest red gloss, it's looking pretty good  Grin. Hope you're all enjoying the Christmas hols & hope you have a happy new year!  Cheesy

Thanks David. Yes it's certainly a festive colour  Wink. I spotted this Delta HF turbo ie 1/18 scale model on ebay yesterday & ordered one to add to my collection.

Here's a photo of the new near side front shock absorber that I put together today & a photo of the old one which was well past it's prime!

Hi Rob

You're making great progress. The diecast you've treated yourself to will help keep you motivated i'm sure. I see that you can get the same model in Martini UK spec i.e. RHD.

Hi Ian,

Yes I was chuffed to find this model as usually you can only get integrals in the 1/18 scale. I'm feeling really motivated on the Delta restoration lately, I usually stop working on him as we go into winter but this year I've braved the cold weather & managed to keep going  Smiley.

Cheers, Rob

I finally finished fitting the 4 new shocks to the Delta today  Grin. So I thought I'd start him up & drive backwards & forwards to settle the suspension & check the camber angles. Unfortunately it was ticking over at 2000 RPM when cold then went up to 3000 as it warmed up! I'm guessing there's something wrong with the idle control valve? He hasn't been started up since October last year which probably hasn't helped  Undecided.

Rob,
While your at it disconnect the hose to the throttle body and clean the butterfly  both sides and surrounds with carb cleaner, as you can get sticky petrol deposits here, and certainly wouldn't he a bad idea to clean the idle control  valve for the same reason.

Thanks for the advice Brian, I gave those areas a good clean & the tick over is now back to normal  Wink.
