haha - getting there bud

ordered the last few bits from Euro car parts so they should be here by the weekend, Noz dropped the seats off so interior refit can be completed. once the new bits are fitted can go off for tracking to be set up, once it's had a run will change engine / box oils.

when i went to put the wheel back on i noticed the splines had some damage, it wasn't terrible as the boss had been pulled on over it but was far from ideal



got another column and switched it over



and fitted the momo


fitted clutch pedal rubber


seats refitted


now it'd been run for a while i could drop the oil / filter and fit new plugs and refresh the box oil



also Noz said the coilovers went on a week or so before and said the handling felt off. so i dropped the top cup off and.......


the 'barrel' nut that holds the bearing topmount in place hadn't been fitted on either side so attended to that and refitted them.

gave it all a final check over and she's ready to go :)
