WHAT TO LOOK FOR

1 Wheels

The con­ven­tional wis­dom is that Com­stars shouldn’t be stripped for re­furb. We agree with that com­pletely – un­less you or your spe­cial­ist re­ally knows what they’re do­ing.

2 Rear brake

The small drum brake will ren­der the whole rear wheel a write-off – or in for an ex­pen­sive re­lin­ing job if the brak­ing sur­face is too worn.

3 Ex­haust system

Re­place­ment ex­pan­sion cham­bers are ex­pen­sive, sup­pos­ing you even find a com­plete set, so th­ese had bet­ter be good.

4 Body­work

Bet­ter all be there or you will be trawl­ing many for­eign web­sites learn­ing the in­ad­e­qua­cies of trans­late pro­grams. Plas­tic weld­ing will fix ex­ist­ing prob­lems though.
