How to rebuild a Sierra and have fun doing it

My Sierra has not got any further at the moment due to impending house move and that bloody woman who has now gone thank god so all bar me getting my dosh back i can now get on with life again

 

Im still waiting for my engine crane to come back from its six month holiday  with my boy but as soon as it does i can strip the Alfa as i need front suspension complete and also rear comlete as the existing Ford setup will come off the Sierra , I will then take the body off again on the Sierra to take picst to send to some bloke in Plymouth called Mr Kerswell for structural redesign without touching or altering the main chassis,  if he says no he will find his surf board sinks and his arm floats will no longer hold air!!!

 

Suspension spring rates etc ,

This will i think take about 3 months as i will ask the Sealmaster (BV) and Mr Adams  ,bit slow i know but it takes time for these 2 gents to discuss the options (polite terminology), great time this for having fun putting the odd spanner  in (giggle), 

Engine and transaxle queries 

Any advise on this i will go to the Alfa owners club again very similar to the doc ,just a lot bigger and soe very clever guys ,just as on here (brilliant website)  

Bodywork

I can manage  this myself  apart from the various new glass seals i will need  (no BV sit down not you this time) .This was going to be handled by a Mr Taylor but unfortunately he seems to be very absent minded these days regarding my window SEALS but i expect he will eventually REMEMBER

 

Spare Parts

This is easy as there are 3 main breakers yard  for a source of Dutton spares. They are Snelsons Dutton rest home , Ade's breakers and Adams Auto spares     

 

So you see guys there really is a great deal of knowledge on this site, and i will be saving money  because i dont need to switch my telly on ,the entertainment on here will be fantastic

don't know about sierra spring rates other than to say that the standard ford set up works very well, and i would say about perfect.
