Nice plans mate post some pics of your progress as you go!!!!!!
so update i have got the lpg going its a apa tank with a airod converter there is no vac leaks it does idle abit high because of the iac needs cleaning but i have noticed that if you put the boot into it from lights it hesitate for a a second or 2 like its going to back fire through the airbox and it moves along and the previous owner has said it this in the add when i bought it on what happens so im hoping i can get some help on this
LPG system: likely needs plugs and leads as the LPG system can backfire or stall under load. Had same thing occur about 2 years ago, fixed for few a few hundred had been OK since, but have not attempted to fix this time as will leave for buyer. Not uncommon with LPGs, higher spark plug wear is price you pay for big savings on petrol bill. No issues with petrol side. You can just drive as a petrol car or fix lpg side, which should not be a huge issue. This factor is allowed for in the price.

i have replaced intake hose and coil packs i have checked the spark plugs and they are ACDelco Professional Platinum Spark Plugs and the spark plugs look fine
a bit of a update i started to get really bad wandering over the road and my first though was yep inner racks are stuffed so i ordered the 555 inner racks and tire rods and lower ball joints all 555 stuff cause the previous owner did state he did replace the inner racks well the inner racks weren't the problem when the previous owner got a wheel alignment done who ever did it forgot to tighten the lock nut up so because the outer tire rods where stuffed i replaced those but have spare inner racks only because i will see how it goes in a week or so if i should change it or not
if its new parts, don't let them sit idol, change it, so you get full use and value out of it, and keep the old as a spare for Justin !
