Anything new?

by Callyman » Mon May 13, 2019 9:33 am

As we are into show season now, anything new on your cars this year? or what have you had to replace/repair?
I've not done much to mine, but have replaced my 18's with some 17" BBS I had refurbished at Platinum alloys in Swindon (Highly recommended)
All 4 were bent and the dents needed welding up.
I will also will be replacing my sump gasket hopefully this month as its a bit weapy.

Well, being honest I’ve not had much time with Cliff this last year. Put him back on the road last month, been out 2-3 times. Noticed a minuscule coolant leak so last week front bumper off and found jubilee clips on the silicone hoses all needed pinching up. Got them all including heater matrix connections. Hadn’t realised the expansion/contraction of the silicone caused this but glad to have caught it!

Yes I've had to do the same since mine were fitted. Everything else ok?

Spot on, running well - will do an oil/filter change soon just as preventative but the oil is still golden tbh...

Have some longer term projects I want to get done like fitting cruise control, replacing the weather strips, a little under-car maintenance etc but nothing pressing.

Funny but when my brother was over he commented how smooth and rattle free the ride is even on our gravel road - compared with the newish Opel and Audi he’s been in :)
