Popular Post Bushman Posted October 1, 2021 Popular Post Share Posted October 1, 2021 Just got my lil blue croc back after 9 months. took it to a indie specialist with a mysterious misfire and ended up spending thousands and having loads of work done. engine out, all new water pipes and hoses, rads and condensors, clutch, RMS, crank sensor, cam sensors and solenoids, ( which I had only replaced last year), MAF sensor, all new undertray studs as many were broken or corroded, Pioneer head unit, wheels fully refurbished, modified and resprayed front end. this totalled over 75 hours in labour and over £2500 in parts. I have to say that although it took 9 months, AutoUmbrau at Silsoe did a cracking job, it was done as a background fill-in task to keep the labour rate down as I am facing possible redundancy with an uncertain future at work and didnt need the Porker as I also run a Grand Cherokee that I picked up cheap. Robin the owner is a true perfectionist and will only use oem parts. Mint Alloys also at Silsoe refurbished the Carrera Classics to a better than new standard, Highly recommended if you need your wheels restored. I havnt done many miles yet but the grin is back. The exhaust however is another matter, It is so loud, mainly a drone issue, this should fade a bit as the pipes and cans soot up but I am expecting to have to wrap the system in glass tape and may have to build a 1/4 wave resonator and weld it in to reduce the dreaded 2000 rpm drone. above this, it is a wailing banshee hat makes my stupid grin wider. Now looking forward to next year, hopefully some normality (what ever that is) and COC meets and ride outs. see you soon chaps. Steve. 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
