    Who's broken their car before the weekender thread

    As with other years what are you planning to take to the weekender and what needs to be done to make it there in it... you know the drill by now.

    You taking the Astra? I won't be able to make it this year. Date clash. Maybe next year.

    Where do I start...

    A little bit of welding
    Some painting underneath
    Fit inlet
    Fit intercooler & radiator
    Run fuel lines in car
    Run brake lines in car
    Fit rear brakes
    Modify exhaust
    Modify rear bumper
    Have the car MOT'd
    Sort teething problems etc

    I'm beginning to think I may have to bring the Audi instead

    I need to finish the welding on mine. Fingers crossed this weekend it will all be done. Then prep and paint the underside, then refit everything, MOT, wheel alignment then get some miles on the car.

    Nice picture. I'd like to put up a picture of mine, but the forum doesn't want to let me upload it...

    Needless to say it's got a lot of filler in it, and, erm, I have wheel, tyres and brakes all sat in boxes waiting to be fitted. No pressure then

    I'm bringing my Accord wagon. In the past few weeks its been fully serviced, replaced two shagged brake calipers, a bushing, and two ball joints, and fitted stiffer lower springs.

    Still needs:
    Remap
    Brakes derusted and painted
    New wheels
    New tyres
    Buff + paint correction

    Should have plenty of time to get her finished

    Mines not broken touch wood, but need to change the gearbox oil and fit some tyres and it should be good to go.

    Remap done (much fun), wheels and tyres purchased. Just the bit of painting and polishing now and were good to go.

    New monster tent and airbed arrived this week too so well on track!

    I have a slow puncture! so may be a struggle for me this year

    You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

    And if you can't fix it with a hammer,you've got an electrical problem!

    Does taking it apart 5 days before count as breaking it?

    New inner arm bushes and ball joints.
