Wheeler Dealers Triumph Spitfire Part 3/5
" sure there is no obvious rust or even some sulfur rusting. And you run your hand or any body part, you can normally feel; you'll be surprised actually how subtle a bump or a dent you can feel, and you can often feel whether somebody used a filler in it, even if, to the naked eye, first glance, it looks fine. You might actually, "Oh! There's a bit of a lump there." That gives you a clue that it maybe a bit of a problem with filler. And you can always get a little magnet on that and pop a magnet on it. If the magnet doesn't stick then it's definitely loads of filler. Notice, this one comes with a hardtop roof which is a really good little thing to get hold off because, in the winter, the soft top is a bit windy which is a much better thing to look for as well. Again, just check everything. Just look at this. It's kinda like any product, any car really. Just keep checking everything for wear and tear. This car has done I don't know how many thousand miles, so it's gonna have lots of bits of wear on it, and so you check for that, especially. Gonna pop on the other side to the driver seat. It's the same on almost any car ever. Again, check the steering wheel for wear. Check the seats itself where the driver seat, but also, check the floor mats. Check under any mats that are in there, but if you can, try and peel the mats up altogether so you can see the floor beneath because of course that you're gonna see the real work. You're gonna see whether there's loads of rust, holes, or worse still, nothing at all, so who have to check on that as well, and again of course, the rubbers, although they can be changed, it's quite a good indication how much wear and tear the car has actually seen. So, it's just the little things like that, and really, just get a feel about how the car looks and know the classic courses of the engine. We might just need to pop round further round again. When you're in the engine bay, check the oil. Check the fluids. Basically, find out whether there's any good. The thing to do is to actually to smell it because obviously you can smell if the oil is burnt. And if you don't know what I mean go down to a scrap yard get around all the cars there and keep checking and sniffing the oil. It will soon work out which are clean which are ones are dirty.

Wheeler Dealers Season 12 Episode 4 - BMW 2002 tii Subscribe for more: https://goo.gl/eamViQ Wheeler Dealers is a British television series produced by Attaboy T, fronted by car enthusiast Mike Brewer and master mechanic Edd China. The premise of the show is that Brewer and China are on a mission to save repairable enthusiast vehicles by repairing or otherwise improving an example of a particular make and model to a budget, then selling it to a new owner. The show was created with a DIYer in mind. The costs and thus any profit or loss for a given project are assessed without consideration of the labour costs of mechanic Edd China (the assumption is that a well-equipped and able enthusiast could complete all work himself) but if repairs require professional help, like a body resprays or windscreen replacements and they are added to the final cost Subscribe for more: https://goo.gl/eamViQ
