Looking good for a C bud lol
Looking absolutely superb
Cheers guys, she's currently dead atm with a knackered alternator and a water leak but will be back collecting dead bodies by next week.....hopefully
Well update is I've decided to replace the lot with regards to the alternator issue so new pulley has been ordered, new belt to be picked up tomorrow and spare alternator is going to get a refurb so I know then I shouldn't have any more issues with it going forward.
This alternator hasn't even lasted two years and could actually still be ok so will keep a hold of it for a rainy day.
As for the water leak I'm 99% sure it's coming from the small pipes attached to the oil cooler so off out in a bit to pick up some spares and will sort all of this before I'm due back at work next week.
Well @RADB02 will be doing most of it, I will mostly be making coffee and perving on his peachy bum haha
Looks amazing and I love the style and the colour of the wheels!! Jealous,much lol
Sounding optimistic. Hope all goes to plan
Thanks guys, the alternator, pulley and belt were replaced however the alternator was making a squealing noise which after some head scratching and ball flicking we have found out that the vec c has two different pulleys for the alternator (still don't know why) and one is deeper than the other which in turn knocks the belt out of alignment slightly.
Guess which one I got on my refurbed alternator?
Luckily I have ordered and received a new one anyway so it's just a case of swapping them.
Also got feeling I need to replace the manifold gasket to the turbo as I'm getting a whistle when I floor it.
But that's another days tales lol
Not really so much of an update as not a lot has happened to the car directly but I have amassed quite a pile of parts awaiting fitting. Most of it is concentrated around the front end so just waiting for the last couple of bits then the frond end will be removed so it can all go on in one go.
Anyway as I know your all picture whores I thought I would stick a few fresh ones up
Looking good. A well sorted C estate
Thanks mate. Still got a few bits to do but slowly getting there
Wheels refurbed and full vxr kit hopefully
Time for an update.
Big thanks to my wife and @RADB02 for sneakily plotting this behind my back but they have sourced a brand spanking new set of xp skirts complete with fitting kit for the grand sum of £100. So happy birthday to me.
Cheers mate it was a good day lol
I need a wheel refurb but got to overhaul the boring but important stuff first.
100 for brand new is pretty good. Do you need the pin clips as I may have spare /can give you link where i got mine?
No mate I got everything i need, just gotta find a rear bumper and then they can all go in for paint
Spent a bit of time giving the old girl some tlc the other day. Washed, polished and used a wax sealant to finish off. Over the moon with the results so far.
Not bad for 170k
Still got some work to do but not bad for a hand job lol
Looking good mate cleans up nicely
Cleans up lovely mate Did you use a clay bar?
