      During the Easter holiday, did I win an FB auction on a quite tired 80 cab.

      The hope is to get it running, do a respray. And get the car looking good again.

      The car has some issues.
      It does not start, might have narrowed it down to a faulty coil.

      It needs a lot of attention in the body and interior department.

      So are on a lookout for parts and tips’n’tricks.

      I do now got two of these cars. Picked the first one up for 1100 USD, and got the second one for free.

      Will try to get the first one running and ready this winter.

      Drove it to the workshop today.
      It start out fine, but as the engine got hot, I tried to rev it a bit and get up too speed. The engine started making strange sound. And started lagging on throttle response.

      The water temperature gauge does not work, so the ecu might give wrong A/F mixture due too the fault. The oil temp was about 70 deg Celsius.

      Have found a temp sensor that looks like a small probe, do not know if that is the right sensor/sender.

      Do also believe that the radiator fan switch is faulty, it runs always with ignition on. Has not found that one online yet.

      Started doing some work on the brakes. Might have found why the ABS light is on, and the parking brake light flashes.
      The ABS sensor rear left had 2mm of dirt on it, and the ABS rings was filled with dirt. Tried to clean it up as good as I could. Hopefully it is enough.

      Took apart the front brakes today.



      Prepared the rear hubs and bearings for new grease.

      Done some work today.

      Reassembled the brakes. Painted the calipers. Just need too bleed the brakes and change out the brake fluid.



      Took out the front seats and washed them. The car has gotten a bit humid (read: like a pool) inside during the fall. Due too lack of time and interest in taking good care of it. So now I’m paying for that, by washing out living organisms.
