    Ive been hearing what sounded like a boost leak so on the ramp at lunch today and found this

    [​IMG]

    the clip was bent etc so order new clips and new seals which turned up within half hour of ordering from tps :)

    new vs old
    [​IMG]

    also been having a bit of wheel wobble and what sounds like a wheel bearing from the back so spun the wheel and couldn't hear anything but noticed that the rear tyres are made by bct (cheap Chinese ****) so balanced all 4 and put them on the front to see if i loose my noise as had problems with them before at work and there brand new so don't see the point in replacing them yet.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    think the person who balanced them was blind lol,
    ordered the ashtray blank today which will be here tomorrow so ill get some pics up of that and have another go at brake light switch

    U warmed the badges up with a heat gun and just pulled them off, then I used a toffee/caramel wheel in a drill to remove most of the sticky/black stuff then some compound Polish to finish it off :)
