GE Scorpion Budget Build

Postby doofis200 » Sun May 07, 2017 9:18 pm

Hey, thought it was about time I made a build thread for my Scorpion.

This being a first car and first project, I have plenty of time, not much money and some borrowed tools.
Progress so far...
Changed oil, filter, air filter and fuel filter.
New Alternator bearings (Old ones packed up first week I had the car :banh:)
Wiring hell sorted out, auto elec had cut the reverse light wires and soldered them to the trailer plug, inbuilt regulator alternator had been wired in and exposed terminals left to short out.
Started fixing tacho.
Mastercylinder was leaking, new one fitted and brake booster painted.
Few items cleaned up and painted in engine bay, battery tray has rusted out so I might make a new one out of checker plate but for now plenty of kill rust and gloss black paint will do.

New Windscreen fitted by Protector Autoglass Warragul, the only place nearby that was happy/able to source this glass. No rust behind original windscreen. Unfortunately the clips for the windscreen moulding got broken so that has had to be glued in place :(
Quarter panels removed to fix rust.
Rust in right hand quarter.
Here she sits at the moment.
I will update as soon as I make some (slow) progress, all this poor weather keeps ruining my plans.

Notoriously bad design at the bottom of the front guards for both Scorp and far as trapped dirt/debris leading to serious rust issues , unfortunately.
