Finally found why the car doesnt like idleing very well... found a tiny pin hole in the standard rubber inlet hose, so after seeing the rediculous price of a new one i took a trip to my mates work and bought a 90 degree alloy intake pipe with a few silicone hoses. I reckon it makes the engine bay so much neater, and as a bonus was less than half the price than a rubber one. Happy days! Cool

Also replaced the crap standard number plate lights with some White LED items. i was worried they might look a bit chav, but they actually look alright, and they are hidden so no chrome showing.

Was hoping to get the car booked in for MOT today but i didnt have enough time to finish off a few things. So looks like its gonna have to be next week now. Sad

And on another note, i got me a rare new project for the winter.... a Vauxhall Chavanne. (factory produced Panel van Chevette estate)

Right, after getting the Vette home i resisted playing around with it and cracked on with the Golf instead....

Decided to make myself a 'proper' rear strut brace instead of the crap show alloy braces that most people buy Very Happy

Made up some Brackets

As ive been working on the buggy lately i felt ive been neglecting poor old kat for a while, so i jacked her up and wound her coilovers down another half inch. She sits much better now Very Happy
Whilst i was under the car i noticed one of the driveshaft bolts was lose, so i went round and tightened that one and every bolt under the car just be safe. Embarassed

Also re-bled the clutch system as everytime i started the car from cold the clutch wouldnt work. Was a bugger to bleed for some reason but got there in the end. Rolling Eyes

Also the twin fans i had fitted a while back were only held on with cable ties to stop them hitting the inlet manifold, so today i made up some brackets and bolted the fans in properly.

Didnt get any pics im affraid as its a bit of a boring update. Laughing

Tonight i started a job that i wish i hadnt! Shocked Ive never been happy with how i originally ran the engine looms when i built the car, so in my wisdom i thought i'd take them out and re-route them...simple?!! Rolling Eyes

Ive cut and re-jointed a load of the loom as they were a bit long in places, and tried to hide as much of the loom as possible, only half way there and it already looks so much neater. Well pleased! Very Happy

I will take some pics tommorow night once i finish sorting it.

Well..... i made it to Plymfest but not in KAT. Sad
I spent friday morning polishing her so she gleamed, loaded her up with all our camping gear. All was going well until i drove her to Tesco to fill up with juice. She cut out in Tesco carpark. Embarassed Ive traced it to an electrical fault somewhere, im pretty sure its my ignition coil breaking down though so i will replace it at some point and see if thats made a difference. Bit gutting tbh that i never made it to plymouth.
