Default "Ray-le-otter" 460 CD turbo auto 1992 1500 ONO

Due to lack of space and time to continue work on this car I have decided that sadly its time for Ray le otter to move on.

So far she has laid up in my garage with the purple 460 for a few years, while I went through divorce proceedings. Now that that is over I have moved up to Lowestoft to get away and moved her up with me, recently I have been doing some of the work yardy has not managed to get done himself.

She has now got:
- a new exhaust
- Solved the hot start issue
- New fuel pump
- New aerial
- Rewired the radio (front and back speakers where the wrong way round)
- tweaked the idle for the richmod ecu I believe she has
- fitted half leather seats
- very plush carpet washed and cleaned
- LEDs sourced and fitted to clocks

Things I know she needs:
- speedo sometimes works or dosent, might be a loose connection with either the clocks or the speed sensor needs replacing
- the LED for the digital display is intermittent, I will try and fix when I have time, may solve the speedo issue?
- passenger door lock barrel needs replacing
- washer jet nozzle stall on the passenger side needs replacing
- rear exhaust bracket where it doglegs over the rear axle
- rear arches are in very good condition for the usual but rusty still, spare set in boot
- without putting her through an MOT I don't know what other issues she has
- sunroof leaks a little, I suspect seals or it is not stopping in the right position as pushing it upwards in the shut position stops water leaks

In the sale:
- braided stainless Steel brake hoses
- lowering kit, shocks and springs
- manual gearbox
- manual pedal box with clutch cable
- volvo turbo bodykit
- 2 850 fog lights, which apparently fit.
- Ronal R10 turbos

Her features:
- she is good looking for her age
- some dimples in her bonnet and boot where vandals have ran and jumped on her, but roof is good
- shopping trolley dings
- her bonnet sometimes sticks
- ronals need slight refurbishment, not through rash but through age.
- audi BoV fitted by previous.
- I have tried to find and correct poor wiring where I have found it
- k&n airfilter

Questions welcome. Pictures will be linked in following post (if that's allowed)
what good music deserves is full deep bass to give it warmth. the stock volvo sub works....just at high volumes Drum n Bass and dubstep
