    Default Another Brocks Mini Meet

    As a result of this thread, I drove over to Andover to meet SilverV, Mark1319, and Graham SRi2.2---Graham you need a shorter name.

    SilverV is stripping his car for sale so I had the Strut Brace, Mark had the shades store and Ariel, and graham the front splitter.

    We decided the meet in a pub car park near Andover...Little did we know it was closed down, very dark and quite dodgy....An ideal place to hand over cash I think!

    Because it was so dark we relocated a better spot up the road.

    Heres some piccys: Sorry Mark, the picture of youe Edition100 didn't come out and I can't fix it.

    We got the spoiler off eventually...Darren's car is really looking quite naked now. Gotta say mate it looked V. nice before we raveged it! Especially the wheels and I don't like Black wheels!!!!






    Marks Edition 100 kitted with the shade store (honest) and ariel, and Grahams SRI ready to recieve Said Spoiler.



    Me, I was in a crappy Zara picasso thing....Handles like a tank!!!!

    Its a small world, Mark works on the kit I used to manage years ago. Nice to hear its still naff and yet to be replaced 6 years after I recomended the kit be phased out!

    As for the journey "home" I didn't realise I had gone through so many counties......Devon (hotel) -Somerset - Wiltshire - Hampshire....Still the drive was worth it! Nice to meet ya guys...Thats another 3 of me list

    lol Yeah mate wasn't the warmest was it
    I think I'll sit in my lovely heated wagon tomorrow and see how many times it fails as I proceed to kick the **** out of it, no joke it's the only way to get it working

    For those that don't know the kit I work with is over 20yrs old and as Brocks has said it should be phased out and hopefully it will be this time around.

    Thumbs up

    Hi guys,

    It was good to meet you all and put faces to screen names. Thanks to Silver V for the splitter - I've been after one for ages and to find one in the right colour was a result Hope whatever you decide for your new wheels works out for you - your vec is certainly a credit to you, before we took it apart!!

    Mark - your edition 100 is a very smart car and was certainly showing a good turn of speed on the way out

    Brocks, sorry you were lumbered with a Citroen for the trip - would love to see your car in the metal next time!! Also, if you can think of a shorter name, I'm open to suggestions

    Hopefully will catch up with you all sometime soon - with the new addition to the front of the car!

    Cheers

    Graham

    btw the camera adds 10 pounds, I'm actually quite slim in real life

    It was loving all the cold air tonight, had lots of pull. That was after going the wrong way for the 2nd time lol.

    Graham you mentioned about adjusting the headlights, is there a thread on it somewhere?

    Hey guys, My mrs was a happy chappy NOT lol. Tip dont bring your girlfriend along when you want to talk technical.... She just sat in the car lol.
    Yea it was cold didnt realise how cold until I went into Tesco and my ears and feet were burning from being cold (does that make sense?)

    Thank you Brocks for taking off the splitter, I definately want my car to look like your red bubble LOL.

    Graham, I think its the jacket mate, look at your legs, they are didly loL!

    I am in two minds about my car now after having a mini meet, I love it to bits but I think I need something smaller for at the mo and as I said I really need to start saving for a deposit for a mortgage.

    Nice to meet everyone
