thysonsacclaim, I know what you should spend some money on. Get rid of that horrible American bumper and replace it with one that it was designed with. Those big things are extremely vile.
I'm not a fan of the bumper myself, but it actually doesn't both me terribly. Since there isn't anything wrong (mechanically speaking) with it I don't feel it is an immediate issue. It may not be the most aesthetically pleasing thing, but I think that is best left for tweaking when your car is running fairly well. At least, that's the utilitarian way of doing it. I mentioned the grille because the grille on my car isn't the correct one. It is too narrow. I should be picking up a 'new' one soon.
Also, I'm no sure how easy it would be to get the bumper here. Since they aren't the style used in the US, if I found one overseas, god knows what the shipping for such a thing would be. Maybe I could arrange to have it stuck in a shipping container for little cost.
I've talked to several scrappers around here, as my neighbor works for one, and they say most things older than 1980 they crush.
It's too bad. I wonder how many 116s had sodium silicate poured into the block:Rebate Program Prescribes Chemical to Stop Car Engines
