    Default Workshop session at Plasma's

    Had a bit of a closed session workshop meet today to get the show car ready for May 5th's Heritage Meet, In attendance today were Sir Bobsignum, Happypostie, Jon1.8SRi, FLOB, and last but not least DanSRi.

    We managed (between chatting for god knows how long) to get the new rear brake lines (silvers braided) fitted, rear lower control arms refitted (still need to be torqued up), front steering arms and tie-rod ends changed as well.. BIG BIG thanks to the main man Dan for helping to do them (well he did 90%) of it lol, and for use of the Vx tool to do them, makes it soo much easier...

    Was nice to meet a new member Jon1.8SRi and his nice shiny black 1.9cdti facelift (looking very nice mate) and sort out the tech2'ing of his rear windows.

    thanks to Khalid for giving the interior of the show car a good going over and for use of the Lord Sheridan's balm for the leather seats... and also for supplying the pizza and cakes.

    thanks to bob for turning up, although he spent all day on Flob's car lol and for bring khalid with him. Nice to see you again as well steve

    All in all a good day, managed to pack away just before the rain started, heres some pictures with a couple ripe for captions









    Who ate my ice cream when I wasnt looking!!!



    I dunno says Jon, it wasnt me....



    Oh thats it Dan, you blame me.... It aint like it could have been Bob?




    I think i see remains on the grass here



    Still Puzzled....





    I dont remember ordering a Lemon Ice and Dot4.0 ice cream (the driver didnt speak a word of english but could ask for £1.70 perfectly)



    Jon's lovely new CDTi.



    Jon giving the lads some sage advice.



    Dan wondering if Khalid will go over easily if pushed


    Big thanks again to all for today, enjoyed it

    Will be holding an Open Session in may some point

    Looks great chaps..

    Whats this 'vx tool' that was used - is that for the steering/tie rods (i.e. the rods that screw onto the steering rack and then the track rod ends go on to them?

    Reason I ask is that I want to do mine soon. Done them on my Vec B with just a spanner - but will I need something more on the Vec C?

    thanks
