... Zal you're best bet is dowdens mate, so when it fails you can park it round the back of my works place and tow it back home after dark (due to new MOT rules on leaving premises etc)? Although cliff isnt a fan of theirs, so 'tis upto you really. Smile

As Dave's now back at work, thought i'd reply for him! It goes in at 4. Not sure what he plans to bring tonight, depends on if me and Jack come as it doesn't have the right seatbelts to put the car seat in yet.

Well well, it seems only right and fitting to continue on where DD left off.
As she stands at the moment the paint needs doing, the interior needs a spruce up and a few bits and bobs need finishing off - a lot less than Dave's taken on with the Serb, god bless ya!!.
Sir Rich of Crewkid will be doing the honours with a Black blow over. The inside will stay candy red as it hasn't faded and still looks awesome with the contrasting headliner. The beige seats will be coming out for a scrub and a nice new carpet set going in - once the leaks have been sorted Smile
The Empi 5's will be changed for a set of original solid steels (4's on the front for a little extra tuckage) and the zorst is going in favour of a cheeky stinger... Having driven it for a few days, i think she might need to go a little lower Smile

Oh, and there'll be some tunes nestling in unsuspecting nooks and crannies, so far a couple of JBL 500w 12's for the rear and i'm on the lookout for some component separates and a nice head unit

As soon as work starts (a few days) i'll start firing some pics up and fingers crossed should all be sorted for dubs@thecastle at the end of the month

watch this space & hopefully i'll do Dave's handiwork proud
