  5. Removed my drivers side head lamp , as original headlamp glass had water on inside :- was a fair bit in the bottom too. Coz i rushed it when the MOT man yanked it off n scratched all my paint in summer. Pulled it appart dried n cleaned it all up , cleaned all me conns etc n fitted it back. Hopefully wont fill up again but i need to get painted when warmer ??
  6. Fitted new wiper blades to replace the ones that broke in the frost. At least i can legally drive it now. ;)
  7. Left her out in the rain :(
  8. I have finished all the rear light wiring finish mounted the rear bumper and wired the bumper indicators and led number plate lights trial fit of the fuel tank few little tweaks that will be finished - Pics to follow
  9. Just fitted my empi exhaust, looking and sounding great. Tomorrow hopefully fitting my red9 coilovers. ;D
  10. Got my new alternator fitted, no more worrying that the intermittant battery charge issue will arrise and she'll not start after stopping at the petrol station lol. Manage to change it without taking the engine out, wasn't as bad a job as I was thinking it was going to be.
    Also got the wiring installed to give power to the electric recline motors for the front seats, can sit back a bitmore now and enjoy the comfort.

    Put it up on ramps ready for engine out, again!!
  12. Practice makes perfect

    Last time i dropped my engine i had to do it with one broken hand

    Zed took great pleasure reading the paper and listening to the radio whilst i mucked on lol

    To be fair to him he did help me steady it whilst i lowered the jack and he helped me pull it out the back

    Im a massive fan of how easy aircooled engines are to remove after removing more than my fair share of upright water cooled engines

    How many times in and out now dude?
    Any more than 5 and your a time served pro lol

    ^^ third time now, first time failed to replace o ring seal in the flywheel, then seemed to be ok for a couple of journeys but now leaking worse than ever. Know now to check the state of the flywheel surface and check end float and shim if poss, or it's replace engine!

    Cheeky bugger! He wanted play the hero with the broken hand, so I let him. :)
