    previous cars

    first car when i was 10


    still got it painted wing now

    second car first road car





    third car






    and now the focus, i think an old owner was a member once as there was a flyer to here in the paperwork

    had the last two days off work so cracked on fixing the car
    first job was replacing the wheel bearing as there was loads of play and sounded awful

    need to remove the hub to press the bearings out

    old bearing next to hub with new one



    no more pics but its all done now and no more nasty noises

    next job the drivers outside door handle had to yank to get it to open the door so needed adjusting

    door card off


    lock out need to twist the white plastic next to my thumb


    re fitted and all was good, while the door card was off decided to look at the window motor as it would go down not up
    removed the motor cover loads of crap in there

    middle was also black and nasty


    dirty

    clean


    built it all back up


    works again now
    mods can start soon

    gave it a wash and tinted the front side repeaters



    my friend had an turboed st170 that got stolen last year, i found it on ebay last night hes thinking of buying it back and breaking for parts so i said i would buy the engine if he does could be fun

              Really like this, think the 170 bumpers suit them well!!

              The trip computer, is it standard part or after market made to fit? If the latter, do you have a link?
