    well iv had spare tyre and the other tyre that was on car fixed.

    tyre on car had a nail in and has been plugged

    the spare wheel had gone flat because back seal was leaking cos rim had not been cleaned properly, and the tyre ran flat and nakard, but still got it as me spare.

    also decided to fit my irmscher grill :)

    after that it has been a few smaller jobs...

    mick brought the steering wheel puller with him so finally got to sort the horn and steering wheel problem with the new squib....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    new flat blades at a bargain price :gngn:

    [​IMG]

    next job shoulda been simple but turned out to be a pain in **** tbh

    old system off

    [​IMG]

    but this happened...

    [​IMG]

    so after hours of drilling and only getting half way, i decided to cut a slit i, drill out easier and make a new thread...added bolt for extra security...

    [​IMG]

    so hoffman centre now on

    [​IMG]

    so after fitting back box, had to trial fit the apron...need slightly longer exhaust rubbers though..

    That is lookin gorgeous fella, especially after the polish. Nevermind the skirts though, I think that front suspension takes priority by a long shot. Not that I should talk with springs sitting here for 18 months......lol. A very nice motor all said.
