    Alpine you seem to get a hell of a lot done! Its just thread after thread of work! Its taken me 3 days to clean and condition my leather (although I have been very hung over on two of those days!) I just seem to piss about for ages and never actualy get much done,

    Look forward to the pics mate,

    Coilovers
    Top mounts x4
    top mount bearings x2 id say 45 mins to an hour. (as i have already lowered ita few months ago)

    Engine mounts x 2 (still waiting for dog-bone) half hour i suppose allowing 15 mins per side.

    Strut brace (upper) as long as it take to drill 8 holes and do up bolts (which should be pi$$ with the stutts out)

    ARB bushes dunno, never done these before..

    New wishbones x2
    ball joints x2 as long as it take to put them back on, should not be to long, 15 mins a side maybe

    18" Rims
    New tyres as fast as the air gun and tyre fitting machine allows me!! lol

    2 3 hours maybe?? cant say really, somthing bound to go wrong!!! mite not even get there if the bloody immo plays up anymore tomorrow!
