    Todays job

    todays job

    as most of you know i blew a aircon pipe at PVS , due to the very poor workmanship of the company that made and fitted the intercooler , they had pushed the accumulator back that pushed the pipes on to the belt , that then cut the pipe

    so todays job was to stripped out intercooler , aircon rad , all pipes , repaired the aircon pipes , then made a bar to go across the front of the car , then fitted all rads to this , adjusted all pipes to fit the accumulator back on to the rad , so the pipes are away from the bellt , all i have to do now is get it leak tested and then regased ,
    I have missed my aircon lol

    Fantastic run Si [emoji106]

    Your VXR is an absolute beast and you should be very proud of all the time and effort you've put into her.

    She's a true one off animal due to all your one off individual mods.

    Love it [emoji106]
