    Default Fitting the new suspension - PIC HEAVY

    Got up this morning with the plan being to spend the day fitting all my new suspension. Unfortunately I hadn't bothered checking the weather forecast, so have had to stop mid way through because it's chucking it down. Supposed to be meeting up with Penfold101 tomorrow over at Bruntingthorpe so hoping desperately it's going to settle down and dry up as the car is currently up on axle stands half done at the front lol.

    Martin, if you're reading this, we may not make it tomorrow at this rate, I'll drop you a text or something letting you know.

    Oh well, gives me a chance to watch the grand prix qualifying

    Anyway, pics of the work so far as I have time.

    Will update and post more pics as it dries out enough for me to do the rest.

    Lol, I was waiting for someone to say something about the state of the car

    I'm doing 200 miles a week now between Ely and Cambridge on the A10 and it hasn't been cleaned since we moved up here three or four weeks ago.

    The plan is to give it some serious loving next weekend before Trax and get it fully ready for Trax next Friday and Saturday, hoping to get the new roof spoiler fitted either today or tomorrow too.

    Although Amy is giving the wheels a thorough inside and out going over while they're off the car.

    Heh the gloves just stop the oil, grease and brake dust going under my finger nails and crap. The dust and dirt on my arms washes straight off
