Project Chevette: Grinding Wax

The Chevette is now sitting 125mm closer to the tarmac which, unfortunately, is the same distance the exhaust was from the ground when sat at standard height.

Now sparks are cool, but even I couldn’t cope with the noise of it dragging on the ground all the time! I didn’t think it was going to last very long either.

As I wanted to keep the stock exhaust, I just cut and re-welded the offending section to give me some clearance.

While I had the car up on stands I took the opportunity to give it a good waxoiling. These cars are well known for their ability to return to nature so hopefully this will slow down the process!

Not exciting, but it’s progress.

Gave it a polish ready for Old Skool Mania; shouldn’t have bothered really…
