All about four pots these days!



Looking forward to putting them through their paces.

Ive been going mad the past 3 days. First off my harness parts were missing, thanks to Dave at Vsport these arrived this morning and they are in. Got the engine mounts all in on tuesday which was a mission. My exhaust still hasnt arrived but fingers crossed will be here today... Just ordered a subframe as my helmet was hitting the cage on the standard seat so hopefully the buckets will be in. Tried fitting quickshift yesterday but the linkage kept fowling on the wiring loom amongst other things so we gave that up as a bad job.

Right I am all done even washed it as the sun was out


all the crap out the interior and my audio stuff is out. Oil changed along with brake fluid tyre pressures checked etc also put myself together a little box of stuff including tape, oil, tools, pump etc

Just got to hope the local tyre place gets my tyres tomoro otherwise I am going out with these on the front




And if its wet that = death o clock








Car is now not leaving the drive until its time to go to coombe incase something happens

Since i've seen the weather is going to be rain i've been doing some real preperation...

... i've just been eating everything in sight to gain a few pounds for extra traction in the wet?



It's been hard work, but i definately can feel the difference already bring on the rain!

unmistakably so

the zip-ties are holding in the rubber tubbing which acts as padding around the crap polybush. the standard mount is too weak to support most aftermarket exhausts for long without perishing.

oh shit, seeing those cable tires just reminded me of my crank position sensor

it's held on with a cable tie, but where it's pulled tight with them, the wires are exposed and when it gets wet the car mis fires and stops

shiiiiitttte.
