Default Re: Dora 2

I think it's a later car since it has an airbag and side indicators. The cracked plastic hydro tank is now out along with the pressure reg and control valve. The filter was pretty nasty, but intact and the fluid definitely needed changing. More pix to follow.

I discovered the front rotors are worn out, along with the front pads. Another reason the car was probably sold by the PO. I thought the car had been in a fron collision due to the radiator support seam sealer visible and the radiator not sitting lower. It actually looks like someone has tried to jack up the car under the lower radiator support which bent it upward. It has had a rear end collision with an iffy repair but at least I haven't found any nasty rust (so far).

I have some new 18" Aero II Hammer wheels which will be polished shortly. I'm currently searching for better wheel bolts.
