    today was a good day turned bad, managed to get all the work done and the first coat of wax on so i thought id get the new EBC red stuff pads on my rears, whilst inspecting the caliper i realised that my piston had sealed and was a bugger to get off i can say that, ive cleaned up the piston and the housing is ready for tomorro for a good clean out, lets hope TPS get the seal kit to me asap. anyway whilst the car was still up on axle stand i finished the car off with the 3 coats of wax she was being treated too. heres some pics i took of today. tomorrow will be the inside detail and the engine bay will get a good seeing to.

    lol yes mate she is sitting nice and tight on the axle stand, widow maker is only there as i didnt want to take it out as i thought the pads were going to be out and in in no time. my jack needs hydraulic fluid so nackered at the moment anyway plus when i need to lift the car i need to use the widow maker(lol) to lift it enough to get the jack under
