Projest ERA mini Turbe

Postby mk1leg » 05 Oct 2017, 22:03

Hi..I have just purchased this ERA turbo thats has been sat in a garage for the last 13 years
Image
changed 3 wheels so as to move it
Image
Image
on its way
Image
Image
first time its been out of the garage since 2004
Image
a quick rinse before I get it towed to my home
Image
front seat is a a bit worse for ware
Image
But I managed to source these parts from a chap that did the leather conversion
Image
and genuine Mileage as I have known this ERA since it came to Jersey back in the 90s
Image
the plan is to have the engine totally rebuilt in the UK and get the shell repaired and resprayed

I have finally paid for the ERA and collected it from the Previous owners home
Image
had to use a Hiab as conventional ways were no good as spoiler was too low
Image
Image
Image
20 minute trip to new home
Image
landed safe
Image
park up till I dump estate to make space
Image
then the full stripdown and rest will begine including engine and turbo

Lovely. I always wanted one of these after having a mini as a teenager and a MK1 metro turbo. Just watch the torque steer when full boost comes in :D :D
