This is the beginning of my mighty l80s journey to new life.
So on a lovely not so winter feeling afternoon I went to collect the l80. I arrived on time and paid the previous owner the $100 I offered them for the car and then went to look at the car for the very first time.
There she is sitting covered in dirt, leaves, sticks and spider webs. The car has 100% been heavily neglected even before its last owner. The only major rust I have seen so far is the rear hatch and little hole under the driver’s seat.
The interior’s dash and steering wheel look good, door cards need some attention, seats are falling apart and the carpet is in unknown condition.
Engine bay needs alot of love, its quiet Dirty, covered in oil, and has some surface rust and corrosion on some parts. After I looked at the car I was still waiting on my tow truck to arrive, Man ended up being 30mins late but oh well I got a little nugget so I’m happy.
I can’t wait to dig into this car properly and make a checklist of what she needs to be a tidy little box once again. Hope you guys are just as keen to see the progression of this nugget as I am.
Will continue to update this thread as I go.
