How much extra was the 4 litre over the 3.2?

Assuming the manual was a delete option over the auto?

Have you seen the 4.0 Manual on ebay currently? beautiful low mileage example.

I'd love it but deserves more garage and love than I could give it currently.

Oh yes sorry, that one. Of course. I watch everything.
Very rare find with that kind of mileage.

Another very small update/ improvement.
The car came with some cheaper aftermarket exhaust tail finishers. Supposed to be chrome, but rusting badly.
Had a set of originals one sat in the footwell for a few months now.
Although the aftermarket ones don't look bad from a distance, up close they are clearly cheap tat.
So they had to go.

Back on the original type, stainless steel this time.

Found a bit more time on this today. and of course a bit more rust to tackle. I don't remember this being there, but sure enough with the engine side trim over off, there it is.
Anyhow, i think i caught it in time, as it hasn't gone through at least.

attacked.

i still have an ABS light on, so thought i best check all the sensors for continuity. They are seem to be good.
Rear connectors are under the seats rather than in the boot on 40s.
I did look at this before, but i don't remember how far i got with it. It may be the ABS ECU then, if the sensors check out.

I ordered some new welding stuff today, gloves and mask. So maybe i will get at it soon? Plus a new grinder!

A new grinder of truth? Is it going to expose more orangy bits? :twisted: Wired or battery operated one? Something fancy like a bosch or makita? :)
