Well she finally arrived in Tasmania last week after a somewhat extended trip from Canberra where I purchased her from another Forum member. Picked it up from my mother's place this morning ahead of a 300km drive back home to Hobart. Have to say she ran like a dream but we had some very unseasonal thunder storms and associated torrential rain on the way home. Wouldn't have been a problem if the wipers worked. Note to self move 'fix wipers' to top of the list. I've stuck my head in most of the places where rust like to live and apart from some small problems in the bonnet near the vents it seems (touch wood) we are looking pretty good. I suspect the car had a major respray 20ish years back and that has saved much of the body from the dreaded rot. That said there appears to be some small bubbling in the paint just forward of the doors (pictured) but you cant see anything from the fuse or glove box. The plan now is to give the car a good look over ahead of sorting all the usual problems, window motors, and the odd missing piece of trim. I want to be able to drive the car for the next year or two ahead of a major overhaul where we go back t the original colour - Ceylon Gold. After considerable time and effort invested trying to find a decent E9 I cant actually believe there is one sitting in my shed. I look forward to members help, opinions and support for the work ahead.
