    Yeah, would have been a trek and a half

    The colours on the seats look so new

    Is that the one that was from down near brands? Must admit, it crossed my mind more than once a a run around for while tubs is getting sorted... Even the tow bar to help with the logistics. Nice one

    Rear Wheel arch

    So, I saw this on ebay a while ago, and can't get my head around it for some reason. https://www.ebay.de/itm/114228513404 Am I imagining it that this isn't there as standard? There's the little rubber strip round the lip of the arch, then beyond that it's just treated metal unlike the front arches?
  5. Could it be the blower motor that's gone? I had to swap mine years ago after it seized. Bleeding is a pain... Having the cars nose up helps (parked up hill is easiest).

    Sweet. Where did you get the hoses from in the end? I hope your foot heals better than my shoulder

    Crikey. I bet that's giving you some grief! Have you been referred to a physio at all?

    Aye, probably made the right call canceling. Still sucks though.

    Ah man. That sucks! Hope the foot gets better soon.

    Looks spot on mate. Love how shiny all those suspension parts are looking.

    More to come on this, but civic5 has came up trumps and thrown me and tubs a lifeline.

    Wow, that'll make a vast difference. Great work as always
  14. Was just reading this on top gear. Think that this sort of product is going to be more common. https://www.topgear.com/car-news/electric/what-would-you-do-107bhp-crate-electric-motor I bet ecu modification suddenly becomes more complicated though... Especially if you want a motor for each rear wheel

    A hybrid 4wd aerodeck... That's what

    Yeah, I think that the choices and prices will get better as they scale up. Even with one you'd have enough power for pootelling around town. The change from electric silence to roaring vtec would be amusing

    Just realised that you said extended studs Must learn to read / not post before coffee

    Bet you're glad to get those knuckles back. The extended ball joints make a nice difference. Really noticed the change when I went back to standard ones.

    Yeah, might be worth getting back on Facebook for. Cheers Jake, would appreciate that. I don't think her sitting around for so long has done her any favours.

    It's a blessing that it failed the mot. To be honest. I'm going to sleep on it, and to be honest if there was a good shell to be had I might be tempted to go for that, but the worry is that they'll all be starting to go.

    Dunno, not many on ebay being broken, and I'm wary of going down that route. Only one deck autotrader, and one on ebay, but doesn't feel right killing another to keep mine if you know what I mean. If there was a Pb one with a blown engine or something then it would be an easier decision.

    Think I'm too far in to turn back now.. Means my painting plans are going to have to be scaled right back though. Might ask depend on what bits I can still buy and what they can fabricate. Things like the cross member, if I can get one that the suspension etc still fits to, but needs a bit of butchering to fit to the car, then that might be what has to happen.

    Not a good advert for the work of DERWENTHAUGH MOTORS You can't just paint over rust or weld new to rusty.
