    Off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of... erm... Buxton?











    Half a Nissan Cherry arch was used. When I got back home it was undersealed under and inside the arch.

    Right, that's installments 1-6 done; I'll be uploading another 16 over the week so stay tuned in.

    Any comments, questions, queries... fire away!

    Cheers,

    To aid in working on my car, as normal jacks just don't go under it and I've had a couple of the 20 specials fail on me in the past, I invested in a big jack!





    It goes all the way under the back and onto the rear engine mount so I can lift the back end up to get axle stands under it.







    It's so nice to use and if I ever have to use the 'normal' sized jack for anything it feels like it takes ages to do anything!

    First attempt at primering the nosecone.









    The day I did this and the previous 2 days had been manic and I didn't get finished until gone 10pm on the nosecone. This was due to having to go to work the next day, 70 miles away, and then go straight to Tatton Park after work!

    A good Tatton Park show!

    Oh noes:



    More brake whoring (yet to swap the discs!):







    Shiny except for the rear arch.

    Second, more thorough and not so rushed attempt at the nosecone:

    Next it was time to replace the drop links all round. I found that I could use the common fiesta drop links un-altered (not shortened) due to my car being lowered, which resulted in making my anti-roll bar sit parallel to the ground, champion!











    ...and I POR-15'd up a spare wing:

    The Silverstone Classic, a great event! Camping from Thursday through to Sunday. It was good meeting some new members from the South.

    A good picture opportunity.



    Rain, rain, go away...



    (Discs correct! - )



    I'd also recently invested in the cheeky number plate you can see in the pictures above. ^^^^

    A 1.6... wtf?

    Looking good mate, did you do your wing and front bumper with a spray gun or can?

    Finish looks good

    Cheers
