  1. boot light  

    fed up with searching around in boot in the pitch black so fitted an original interior light in the ignition panel. decided not to wire it up to come on automatically as didn't want the hassle of posible problems with battery drain and fouling the tai

  2. Braided Clutch hose  

    Had a leak from the clutch slave cyclinder so took the opertunity to replace the red hose which is supposed to cause problems. While I was at it I decided to replace the master cyclinder as well. Relatively easy job especially if you have access to a ramp

  3. braided hoses, new original calipers all round  

    Stainless steel hoses look the business and help the pedal feel firmer. New original calipers with red stuff front pads and green stuff rears really stops well and doesn't so far cook. Alot less money than the big brake upgrades about and ideal for fa

  4. cam covers and plenum chamber

  8. front mesh and struts  

    when replacing the radiator i thought it would be a good idea to make the front mesh match the rear. this was alot easier than the rear but as all things it didn't stop there. took the oportunity to replace the two struts from rusty bits of iron pipe

  9. Full Respray in original colour  

    Mates rate and a half!!!!! Brilliant job, car looks fabulous, even did the arches, wheels and calipers.

  10. ICE ( stereo, ipod, aerial, autochanger etc etc)  

    Had a kenwood front loading mini disc player fitted to car in original din aperture. Coupled it with a 6 disc cd autochanger which fits perfectly in the pocket on the bulk head between driver and passenger. Its like having a front loader and doesn't e
