    You might need to remind me in a week lol. Actually, are you going to the SXOC meeting? if so I can give them to Mark to take along?

    Neck is very stiff at the moment. Nurofen is currently my friend and it's not doing that great a job. . Laura's is pretty stiff too .

    Well I've broken it again

    It's been running great but last night while I was out for a spirited drive I sprung a water leak. I'm not sure if the leak is from the bottom rad hose or the rad itself but the entire contents of the radiator is now on the road beneath my car I'll have a look on sunday and if needs be I'll refit the standard rad until I can fix my japspeed rad or afford to buy a koyo

    Kam, the guy that did Chris' welding will probably do any work you need doing quite cheaply.

    Most of that is simple. Your tints are too dark I guess?

    Handbrake is screwed because your rear calipers are seized at a guess. Ball joints and brake lines are prob the most tricky tbh.

    You can refurb the calipers or get some ready refurbed ones from db power if funds allow

    Ollie your brother mentioned he's pretty busy at the moment else I'd of most likely got him to fit my new rear brakes for me

    Shock horror an update!!

    Since the mot I have sprung a coolant leak which I'm sure it the bottom rad hose. Will pick up some silicone hoses soon but that can wait til pay day

    Today also saw the long awaited fitting of my rear z32 brake upgrade. The complete set up has been sat in my garage for the best part of two years now

    Fitting was going well righ up to the point of fitting the braided hoses. While tightening the hose up the fitting on the hose itself snapped in half It's an easy fix but it does mean that instead of being able to give them a test I'm now sat waiting for the hoses to arrive with the car immobile again.

    Anyway here is a couple of pics





    I've also picked up a new daily which needs a little attention so this is why the sx has been on the back burner for a while.



    Picture of the two together

    Cheers mate Fixed 50% of the problems. New coolant temp sensor fitted (still needs a new stat as it runs too cold) fixed the boot sensor also.

    Still not sure on the start issue. I can't help but think it's fuel related but a mechanic mate of mine thinks it could be the starter motor

    take the starter motor out and refit! bet that fixes it!
    200 is looking awesome though, that's the thing that frustrates me is that when a job goes wrong the car is not usable
