The Donor Car
We ended up with two donor cars. The original one that came with our kit was a pile of bits from a 1990 Automatic 2L DOHC sierra. Whilst all the parts from this were serviceable neither of us like automatic cars.
I looked around for a manual gearbox to use and came across a decent 1993 2L DOHC Manual Sierra Ghia. It was being sold cheap as it had a dodgy fuel pump.
Using this car should make our life easier as I can see where all the parts were originally fitted and also mark all the cable ends as they are disconnected. The original donor wiring loom would take a fair bit of work to figure out what every connector does and where it should go.
Also we should end up with a newer reg number not that this really makes any difference; it’s a Beauford after all!
