    Default What a day

    What a day from hell rushing around all day to day then i had to get brakes all done only to find my passenger side rear calliper had seized and i couldn't get a replacement anywhere and needed the car,so had to strip it down and finaly managed to get it moving freely again.

    But i guess i will have to do it all again when i get a new calliper £58 so not a bad price,got a bit of a creep atm but have been told i will have until brakes bed in so all in all glad job is out of the way roll on MOT

    Only highlight was seeing my new refurbed wheels
