Spent the day tidying up the white Magna.
Idea is to try to sell it for a worthwhile profit. There seems to be a decent market for the nice examples like this one, so I am hoping that I should be able to double my money, maybe more.
The car had taken a mild hit to the bum in the past - I could see the dent before I bought it.
Whoever “repaired” it, did an absolutely terrible job. It seems like they literally put a new bumper skin on and nothing else…
The original bumper support (on the right) was a mess - photo was taken after I spent a few minutes straightening it out, but I decided to fit the support for the other white car that I wrecked.
The gronk that refitted the bumper had not only left bolts out, but also managed to tear two of the captive nuts out… that was fun to deal with… Noting that the the only access is from the back (top of the photo), so it took some effort to hold them still.
So it was a time consuming process, but it looks heaps better now.
The back of the resonator was cracked. Turd of a job to weld up, with crappy access, so it wasn’t pretty welding but now it doesn’t leak.
Also changed the engine oil and filter, but no photos because that’s boring.
Also removed the front cam cover and resealed it. I was planning on replacing the rubber gasket, but the old one was still flexible enough that it should be good.
Missing bump strip off the driver’s door replaced with the one from the blue wreck.
They're supposed to be held on with double sided tape, but instead I used some self tappers from the inside. The little tabs stick through the door, so you need a washers to take up the extra height.
Still up in the air because I worked out why the LHR tyre was flat when I bought the car…
I will take it to get fixed properly on Tuesday.
