    A thread to use as a virtual scrapbook of my ownership on my 360 Manual.....
    Since Dec 2019 Iíve been to Scotland twice, including the NC 500, Wales a couple of times and a couple of FOC organised events. Somewhat of a departure for me as Iíve usually SORNíd my Ďspecialí cars for the winter, so welcome to my rather liberating Ďdailyí 360 experience

    Like most people when I pick up a new car I like to get it sorted to a good baseline condition and go from there. My 360 was being used regularly by the previous owner but still there were lots of things that needed addressing......
    Initial jobs done/parts replaced since pick up:
    Cambelt change at the main dealer before it went anywhere!
    Radiator fans
    Thermostat
    Manifold to Cat rings x2
    Exhaust from a 12k mile car as original had rattling active valves and the stainless was quite unsightly
    3rd Brake light inoperable, fixed
    Driveshaft heatshield re-secured
    Mass airflow sensors x2
    Clutch block
    Angular speed sensor (crank position sensor) x2
    Electric windows and HeVAC controls clear goo cleaned off
    HeVAC panel bulbs
    Adjust drivers door handle cable
    Adjust passenger side drop glass
    Oil pipe slight weep fixed
    Rear discs & pads
    Major service
    Wheel bolts x20

    Just completed the fabulous Welsh Weekend without any issues (big up to Mike and supporting team!), the 360 was really going well and thoroughly enjoyed the drive and social, great event, great people and fabulous roads!
    Rather than wash it when I got back Iíve taken it in for the rear bumper and near side sill to be painted as these were the only untidy (iím being a bit harsh and picky!) parts to the car, so soon thatíll be sorted too.
    Next job once back from the body shop will be drivers seat leather side bolster to be replaced and finally a full detail.
    I really love improving a car to a good standard, hopefully Iíll manage it with this one!
    Happy days, Giles

    Nice to meet you and Connie at the weekend Giles...If you want to keep this thread clean ask the mods to delete this (although I notice one of them has already 'contaminated' it )

    We should have spent more time comparing notes....

    I've done a lot of the items you list below....engine and gearbox mounts are also well worth changing if not done previously.
    Was one of the fans seized or just looking a bit rusty?

    On the exhaust front, I bought a very low miles OEM unit. It was like new inside and the guy said it had only been on a few weeks from new.
    The tailpipes are the later design to the ones on my 2000 car and rattle like hell compared to the originals. It's on my to-do list to try and tension them to stop it. Otherwise the old ones are going back on.

    Hi Mike,
    Both fans were seized hence needing new ones.
    My recently fitted OEM exhaust looks great but is putting out lots of white powder deposits on the engine.
    I know you can re pack the exhaust box, but not sure if that is on my priority list.
    Once Iíve had the paintwork done Iím going to fit the OEM stone chip protection on the wheel arches, I will do the light detergent spray routine and hope for the best!
    Not sure what you mean about cleaning up the thread..... looks ok to me
    Cheers, Giles

    As itís your scrap book I wasnít sure you wanted to keep it Ďcleaní ie without lots of others posting in it

    If you know a decent TIG welder and can remove the exhaust itís actually quite simple and very inexpensive to stop the white dust problem. Iíve done one and Iím about to do a second when Iíve a bit of spare time.
    Iíll post it on my Argento 360 thread.

    A couple of photos from the March 2019 Scotland trip with the Hillman Imp Club, my first long drive with the car, and before you ask it came back on a truck with a failed crank position sensor, best MPG ever on the way home!
    Plus a couple of pictures - not my Bentley, house, or wife!!
