This vehicle had been purchased some time before I took delivery of it, and had been at a body shop for some 12 months having new sills and front wings fitted. It was then resprayed in a metallic maroon colour and had been driven from the body shop straight to me for a service and some mechanical issues to be sorted out.
The cam belts and drive belts were changed, along with a fair amount of cosmetic tidying up and fluid changes. A number of components were re-chromed, vapour blasted or stove enamelled and most of the fasteners were replaced with stainless ones. The left hand exhaust manifold was badly cracked and had to be renewed. The engine had a serious oil leak, which necessitated in the right hand cam box casting needing to be removed. It was re-sealed and refitted to complete the job.
This is a general view of the finished engine bay.

Here you can see the re-chromed intercooler pipes and re-finished cam covers and plenum chamber.
