Default Mk2 wedgewood Club SE CDT auto saloon

Picked this up the other day for scrap value....





And gave it a quick wash over this evening just to see what i'm dealing with. And theres a few points of concern lol!



Its a late 02 wedgewood club se diesel auto, and as you can see its had many many changes. I used to know the car when it came out to the shows, but it went to scotland and has ended up back here.

Sadly the highland roads haven't been the kindest to her and needs a lot of recommissioning. I know at a glance it needs a hub and arm, thermostat 100% as wont go above 80, the engine is making a strange whooping sound on idol (not air con pump) and there's a shudder through the autobox at stationary.

Im hoping autobox is fail mount / hydromount.

Plans?

We i'm going to "Un-modify" it, as such. Its got everything, 190 brakes, drilled and grooved discs, zt shocks, motobuild springs, rear vented calipers, 160 remap, mk2 conversion, mg7 premium bumper and so on, but inside it is very very club se. Even the door handles and trim where colour coded to match.

So I plan to return the "rover" to it, make it more recognisable, rear plinth will be a mk2 rover plinth, front bumper will be a standard mk2 bumper if i can find one, otherwise its paint gun time, and then take car of the mechanical first obviously.

Very tempted to do a complete interior swap on it, as whilst in decent condition, I feel it could be much nicer. Maybe sandstone beige everything. Shall see, thats bottom of the list.

But yes, the bumpers being sold along with rims to pay for all the work, the brakes im keeping as spares for my 190, the discs and pads havnt even got 500 miles on them, so they will go on my 190 also and save me money soon!

So im going to "unpimpen ze auto" in an effort not because i dislike it, but because i do like it and wish to save it from the breakers without costing me much bar my time.

Good luck with the project! I seem to remember a previous owner on here being incredibly keen on keeping it immaculate. A shame to see that its life in Scotland has taken such a toll on it.

TBH the bumper is growing on me, yes it needs painted badly again, but I shall hold onto it until I get a decent offer.

Might move my 5 spokes from my tourer onto it, i've been after a set of meteors for it for ages, might be the time to try and source them as its coming off road once this is legal for a big restoration.

Few changes so far.



















Custom satin chameleon pearl vinyl wrap done by myself, 9 ish hours doing that properly, wasn't the easiest material to work with as stretching it distorted the satin colour.

Awaiting a mk2 black airbag and door cards, but whole interior has been replaced. Car has went from Ash grey and smoke stone 75 interior to Ash grey everything with a e39 a gear knob (also wrapped in middle) and a contemporary steering wheel and contemporary (none se) seat set. Pics will follow in better weather.

Yes Thomas, very grateful for it

Few pics of her now on the road, hadn't actually gotten any new ones bar a trail fit of rims.

Colour certainly stands out compared to so many modern cars.











Looking forward to ibeing a nice daily for a while.
