Just given the steel wheels a bit of a (lazy) makeover

Stripped down the carb and replaced the gaskets, valve and filter. Gave the house something of a clean too.

It's booked in for an MOT this week, so finally got the brake pipes changed.

New air filter clip. Thanks Rusty.

And the decal went up a couple of weeks ago.

Looks like you've got a co-driver sorted aswell.  :good:

Yeah, he can't wait to go for a ride in it.  His favourite place is in the garage with Daddy and the Baby Car now.

Nice run down to Caffeine & Machine near Stratford this morning. Proper array of stuff coming and going for the hour I was there.

Started to put the 126 back on the road today...

New HT leads made and fitted.
Distributor replaced as the old one was surprisingly worn and causing issues.
Fixed an air leak on the fuel pump and one of the hoses


Need to rebuild the carb next as I think there is a float chamber issue..
New tyres needed after 3 years sitting..
Drivers door window needs fixing as the winder mechanism and cable broke

Looking forward to driving it again!

Bought and fitted this set today. Everything fits as it should with the exception of the tank cap

Now shopping about for a new tank cap (for one that actually fits).

Also on the lookout for chrome bumpers, if anyone has a set spare for a ‘97 126P and willing to sell drop me a message (thanks).

New Wheels! Got them on eBay for £170, tyres like new. Sorry if the 'other' bidder is on here.

I saw those 13 inch alloys as well.

It really looks good on your car!!!! Wasn't your original steel rims 12"?
