it best be done for PVS or im going to see my arse big time, suprisingly there isnt that much work to do, biggest expense now is going to be the pedal box, cylinders/lines and the DTA and loom, as the ecu and loom is best parts of 1k. im doing a 16day sprint in work til 23rd so all ive been doing are jobs for other people at night, so no time to work on it, but got xmas/new year off so going to get cracking with it then

good to see you are gonna make some progress phil. Alot of time seems to have passed without you being able to do anything to it...

Stop doing things for others for a month or 2...and get stuck into what needs doing. You need it on the road and through the shakedown process well before PVS! Dont want it going all apple on you whilst you're there.
