    Of course I have. I was at Bedford a fortnight ago and Spa a month before that. Plus weekend hooning.

    Ladies in pieces for a few days. As discussed in this topic my nuts rattled loose which burned out the gasket and caused all sorts of havoc. You can see the firesleeve did a proper job of protecting the water hose, it's all turned to crusty Silica. Nice one Plenty to replace it with. The gasket is toast so that's arrived, but I can't retap the manifold for the new studs yet as I can fit my M10 tap in but can't twist it. So I've ordered a 255mm Tap Wrench from eBay, should be with me Monday.

    One thing I will say. I love V-Band and high quality AN fittings. Was so simple and hassle free to dismantle.

    Inconel! Massive thanks to Sideways Danny for finishing the tap operation for me. Took me ages to get the time to get to the car and to not be able to finish that task was a real kick in the teeth, so epic work by Dan to save my skin. Out for a drive tonight I reckon before having another look at selling up.

    I genuinely considered the weekender this year, but the timing just isn't right for me this weekend.

    That's a real shame you can't do the weekender. Been wanting to have a ganders at your car for a while now.

    Cheers Jamie, I'm putting some more validating miles on it Sunday with Quail. Off to pick up a spare Z32 Transmission on Sunday, Insurance and Tax due at the end of the month etc. So it's just not possible.

    So I missed the weekender again which was sad but not unexpected. On the Saturday I drove to Minehead in Somerset to get a spare Z32 transmission from a bloke down there.

    Then on Sunday, got H15 out for a wash and Quail was kind enough to take some pictures for his Street Spec blog. Here are some of them. I think he did good!

    There are many jobs to do now that the big things are over. I need to remake the transmission tunnel so it's nice and tidy, finish my dashboard blanking plates to hide the wiring, tidy up the engine bay, repaint the interior and switch the transmission. But these will all come over time. I'm still adamant it's going up for sale but I want to carry on playing. Anyway, Alex's pics as promised. Be sure to check out Street Spec as well.

    Good to catch up yesterday mate, car looked great. Faster than I'd realised, too! Definitely feeling re-enthused about my own car.

    Uploaded a very quick writeup here: http://streetspec.co.uk/track-spec-s14a-200sx-2015/

    You must never ever put a front number plate on that bumper. Ever.

    Cheers Alex, glad you had fun. Only brief as well! You should come to a track day one day mate, it would be a good laugh.

    Many thanks mate, I'm definitely happier now. Would like to sort the panel gaps due to the carbon and FG panels, but that's a job for another day.

    Thanks mate, I would like to keep it as well and to be honest, having had some more seat time, I do want to. But at the moment it would make more sense not to have a hobby car like this for me.

    Many thanks dude, very kind words. I'm not a front plate man which I understand makes me 'that guy' but I can live with it.

    Just out of interest what are the wheel specs and tyre sizes you're using?

    And do you have any video's of the spa track day as i really want to book one next year!
