Next Time I Decide To Do More Mods To The Car.....

28 posts in this topic

....someone stop me please!

Having a load of bits done, car is at Unit 4 in Burton for these mods and Gav is being a star but it's been a never ending story of 'custom' bits that haven't fitted properly 1532.gif

Mods done by others on their cars have not been straightforward on mine for some reason. I'm sure he's loosing the will to live with the amount hassle this car is causing him.

And he's just noticed that one of my rear suspension bushes is fooked. How can this have a happened in the pitifully small amount of miles I've done since they were fitted????

 

If anyone's car is at Gav's and has been delayed, it could well be my fault - sorry!

Leigh, it's cause you don't use it it's happened!!!!

It's a way for the car to cry out for use.

I think Gav WAS loving it too, when he started. The novelty is wearing off though.....

 

Mind you not far off now - famous last words......

I told him there was no rush, and that's still the case. Not worried about how long it's taken more the bloody hassle it's caused him.

 

When It's all done I may well write it up on here - might take me some time!

You'd have to talk to your Mrs if you didn't spend so much time on the cars.

I've dropped mine down this morning. It's been banished to the corner tongue.png

 

It's siting quietly as it got worked on most of yesterday. Just waiting for some stainless steel shims and I'll be able to take it away!

Bet you can't wait to get it back.

It looked very nice as well. Your engine bay is immaculate

 

The rocker cover was standard Honda red when it went in. The inlet manifold was coming of so it meant there was good access to all the hoses. They were red and I really wanted them black - so that was all done and whilst it was in bits Gav suggested I may as well get the rocker cover done black. then I though, in for a penny......and did the Inlet manifold black too.

 

I'm so easily persuaded!

We need a pic before you put it away again. For Gods sake only pick it up on a dry day :)
