    Busy day working on the car yesterday - Update.

    Started working on the car at half 9 yesterday.

    Got finished at 6, I was shattered and had not eaten all day. Slept well last night!!


    I was helping my mate (who has a garage) do the water pump, timing belt, oil/filter change, spark plugs and air filter clean and pollen filter.

    I also fitted an ECS magnetic sump plug and a neuspeed snub mount.

    I dont know how anyone could do this job on their drive, would be a nighmare.

    Here are a couple of pics, I didn take many as I forgot.

    Start at the garage.






    Engine stripped.










    All finished

    I have two sets, the dark wheels are waiting to get reconditioned.

    I need to get these silver ones straightened as one or two have a slight buckle.

    Yeah seems to have made a little difference, you get quickly used to it so have kinda forgotten what it was like before now.

    Yeah I want my other set done dark with a polished rim/lip. Dont know whether I can do it myself though or will have to pay someone to do it.

    Will look great done though.



    I fitted my Awe boost gauge today. Have had it for ages but never bothered fitting it.
    Just another few smaller jobs to do this week.
