    Default Anyone else repairing their cars outside in this weather?

    Brrr it's cold outside and I've spent today working on my car outside on the drive in the snow.
    It's -5 and snowing occasionaly and there is still a good few inches of snow on the ground.

    Front spring broke so Eibach's fitted with new Bilstein B4's.

    I did the first one (The broken one) and refitted then found the bump stop DOH....
    Off with it, strip down and reassemble, this time with the bump stop!!!.

    Then the other side.

    Dropped a socket in the snow and spent ages finding it again.

    I must be mad.

    Will do the rears tomorrow.


    Anyone else having fun trying to keep the daily ride fixed in this weather?

    Bigmac, inner CV boot isnt too bad, done the same one on mine, I took the shaft out of the hub and then out of the inner CV joint, slipped boot on the re-fitted.

    Oh and fitted mudflaps and removed Irmey splitter in this weather, at night!
