Well I've just got back in from 4 hours down at Ron's, and what a productive 4 hours it was. Well expensive anyway! :)

I took it down there on a trailer as it wasn't running. I havn't had it on the road for a year and the gearbox was whirring a little, so I thought I'd get it rebuilt and have it serviced. While it was there I thought I'd have the coilovers lowered a bit more and have a few other things tweaked.

Then Ron says "I've got some nice polished rocker covers". Well that was all the incentive I needed!! I think Ron regrets saying it now because I got Steve to strip almost everything I could poke my finger at so it could be polished! :D

Fingers crossed I should have it all back on the road healthy and shiny by the weekend. I need to do something to my bodywork though aswell. I got Ron to call Andy for a full Do-Luck kit, but he was out of the office and hasn't got back to us since. I'm thinking I might put a standard bumper back on with a carbon lip for the time being. I could do with a standard rear spoiler aswell. Anyone got one?

Nick.

Looks like all the gears were worn so I think a new gearbox is next! :) Oh well at least my bay will be all shiny! :D

I think I type in invisible writing most of the time because nobody can read my posts. Either that or I'm just boring! :D

Damn you Vicenzo!!!!!! Probably right though! :D

What is it you've got wrong with it Faz? Where in London you from? Anywhere near me? I'm in Laindon. I know it's not really London, but you know. :)

I wouldn't have a clue how much Ron would charge for this Mitch, I just asked him to fix whatever was wrong with it. Give him a call, that would be my advise.
