Project money pit
« on: 22 November 2020, 13:07:45 »

I bought this manual 3.0 in September, for cheap knowing it will cost me reasonable amount of money to fix, but I plan to keep it as a summer time car anyway, so the work can be done slowly.
It's driveable, has MOT and more important - I was on a hunt for one of these for a long time.
So here she is



Right away the work started. As any Omega, this one had some rust problems. What I've learned in almost 10 years of Omega ownership is where to find the hidden rust.
If your Omega has foggy windows look for this in driver/passenger side footwell



And fixed with new metal welded in



Removing the carpets revealed another spot



Repaired, new plate welded in and protected

Repairing and adding some sound insulation after I cut it out to check for rust under









Some sound deadening material was added inside all doors

Cleaning the sticky rubber from doorcards with degreaser and cleaning wipes went really easy. They look brand new now



Plastic under door handles was flocked due to being scratched and I think it came out nice

Well, she looks nice on the outside, this is the interior now





Rust work is done, interior is done, I have some new goods for her allready but they need to wait until the lockdown is over :(



I also bought four new summer tyres which will be fitted when bushings and wheel alignment is done.

Next part will be engine time, need to buy new radiator, battery, AC condenser while I'm there etc...to be continued

I think that's an excellent solution. If it were mine, I would also flock the 'carbon fibre' trim that runs along the rest of the door so that everything matches. On the dark colour interiors this would require a keen eye to spot it isn't a factory finish :y

I did some trial and error with flocking bigger flat surfaces but got mixed results. However it is good solution for smaller uneven items like plastic part on pic

Cant see from image, but was the black plate holed?  Did you fix the black plate, or just weld over the bulkhead?

My black plate has quite a big hole, but not sure I can get to the edge to weld a plate on, due to where its rusted.  I need to clean it up a bit more to find where the good metal is...   ...or look at other ways of sealing - its only got to last through until probably 6 months.

Wire brush it, West System epoxy and woven glass mat/tape, then spray stone chip onto the outside.

Or a foil tray and sikaflex if you cba to do a reasonable job.

The fibreglass option was considered, and not yet ruled out. Though same issue, as I think usable metal is out of reach/view

Foil and Sikaflex it is then :D

Presumably you have pulled the glovebox? If you need the airbag out of the way, the cover is only held in by a long bolt easily removed once the passenger vent is removed. (the three torx bolts underneath have to be undone to remove the glovebox)  ;)

New metal plate was welded where the rust was. I had the same problem on my 2.5 v6 but on the driver's side. Rust hole was small, but enough to leak under the insulation foam.

I don't do welding so I can't tell you that. I just know that the welder said he never wanted to see me again after welding that tight unreachable spot.

It forms part of the bulkhead, but would be in the way when the shell is assembled  ;)

It gets fitted and bonded in after painting

*the shell also varies as the cabin air intake/engine bay panel is actually part of the shell. That black panel is added during final assembly it's probably what those bolts on the outside of the A pillar (above the upper door hinge) hold in place ;)

A lot of work has been done, rust repaired, rear spring were broken, brand new tyres, new radiator, AC condenser and dryer, AC compressor - blowing cold now :y , SAI ditched, multiram repaired and working corectly now, new sound deadening and insulation added, sound system remains original Bose, replaced headliner etc....

She flew trough MOT two weeks back with flying colours. And will keep her on the road until September. Then back to hybernation. Snow and salt won't do her any good.
The amount of work done is guite big, I forgot a lot of it.  She drives smooth, very quiet on motorway.
I believe I'll keep this one for a long time

A little bit of update. Omega is in for a rust repair, major one. It will take a long time but it will be worth it in the end. I was afraid some more rust will be uncovered in the process but she is not that bad as it shows.

Been there a year ago. Good luck with repairs, she's definitely worth it! Check that bulkhead area around steering column also.

Very satisfying to bring back a beautiful machine like this in perfect condition.
Congratulations on the restoration!

She's finally home. New Sachs shocks and Kilen springs fitted, new cills, new rear panels, she's repainted completely from bumper to bumper.

All it needs now is boot lip spoiler, that should be fitted next week.

Very nice indeed!
May I suggest replacing those yellow turn signals with clear ones?

I wouldn't mind but on the other hand I'm trying to keep it in stock condition, as from the factory...Any link for known good clear turn signals?

I am willing to give them to you if you have idea how could I send them cheaply  :y
