Have not done a whole pile to this since... Still waiting for a free weekend to do the clutch, flywheel and swap in my new diff. Just been on and off daily driving it.
And since I only got a bit over 3 months NCT last time round, I had it in again last month. Which meant off with the throwing stars, and back on with the motor sports
Of course I had a tester who hung out of the car as best he could and he found a few faults since it past the test 3 months previous
Thankfully, they were all minor, or something I had planned to do anyways...
Lolipop bushes had play in them, so in with some new Meyle HD m3 eccentric bushes. Handbrake was never much good, failed on an imbalance, so new shoes and set them up right. And a front outer balljoint had a little play (opposite one to the last NCT failed.. Knew I should have done em both
). Both are done now with Meyle HD also, so should last for a long time to come. My Vadars had to come out too as a faulty occupancy sensor was triggering the airbag light...
Other than those few bits, I got so new mint headlights in place of the horrid angel-eyes, and got some new number plates too
I went for standard font as I'm sick to death of German font... Its just done at this stage
and I got no dashes or County name up top... just clean and simple
Some of my plastics needed a serious back-to-black and the tyres needed tyre-shine, so gave the car a good going over Saturday morning with the weather being so good, and went for some spirited backroad driving
Few more bits planned to do. Want to re-polish my throwing stars before they go back on... baked in brake dust doesn't go well on bare polished metal
That being said, I am enjoying the motorsports at the minute. They give the car a different look and I don't have worry about rubbing arches... I call them my "drive fast wheels". Only thing I have against them is the balloon tyres up front rub on full lock turning.. previous owner put the wrong size tyres on the front, I may change them soon.
Hopefully next weekend I will go at the clutch and diff and stuff.
