  1. I have had three cars vandalized in my time and its a horrible feeling.The first was my Mk1 RS200, it was spotless.

I used to get lots of greif with it other boy racers and old bill. 2 A Opel Monza was broken into and an attempt was made to remove the radio.

This also means I don't have to worry about a traditional tensioner for the alternator. As you can see there's no cambelt tensioner in at the moment. I decided to change the threaded spring tensioner to the hex head version for aircon cars. I've just got a couple of spacers in there instead so I could mount the brack
