  1. So I went to a local mechanic who managed to get them out, but they had to be cut out. The arms have been cut into a fraction, will this cause any issues?
  2. Tried that. The f**kers are stuck in good and proper!!
  3. Thanks mate. I’ve actually burnt out the rubber part of one of bushes [I think the fumes have knocked a few years off my life], but it’s the metal collars which are now stuck in and the tools I own won’t get the sodding things out.
  4. I need to push out the bushings from some front control arms before they get blasted and powder coated. Anyone in Birmingham who could help do it otherwise I’ll have to ask a local mechanic. Many thanks.
  5. Let me double check on that mate and I’ll definitely get back to you. Thanks for replying.
  6. Dave, thank you for your reply. I thought the same regarding the abs ring. I’m going to keep the 4 x 100, it’s cheaper to change those over for new ones than having to buy new wheels They aren’t damaged, just want to replace numerous items for piece of mind.
  7. Ok, here we go with the first stupid question. So the hubs on mine have been changed to 4 x 100 by the previous owner for wheel choices, which is fine by me. I want to change the wheel bearings and hubs all around. I also plan on losing the abs very shortly. I think I’m right in thinking the wheel bearings for the front are the same if a 1.6/1.8 [are some cheaper?]? With the hubs, I’ll need ones from a 1.6 etc which are also 4 x 100? Now some hubs state they are for abs/none abs, does it matter which ones I get? Like I say, sorry for the basic questions.....
  8. As above, parts wanted and can hopefully be posted. image below to confirm. thank you.
  9. Thank you very much. In no particular order: Change turbo/manifold/intercooler piping Complete overhaul and refresh of underneath, address any rust issues, new suspension components (except coilovers), powder coat of knuckles, trailing arms, new drive shafts etc. Tidy up engine bay, so remove abs, Relocate battery to boot, new line/filter set up. Fit some Recaro Trendlines I currently use as a daily a 1996 Honda Civic 1.6 automatic, with a full leather interior (just done 60,000 miles!) which I’ve owned for about 8 years. I want to put the rear lea
  10. I cannot thank forum member Kink43 for his help over the past few months with his help and advice, has been an absolute superstar. Please note, I will be probably asking some very, very basic dumb question so please bare with me.
  11. Afternoon, So after looking for a vtis, offering to buy one but the owner wouldn’t sell and going out in one which scared me silly, I’ve finally managed to buy an Aerodeck, which I initially said I wasn’t interested in, and I love it! It was bought from a lad who’s a member on here and it’s going to be a work in progress while still being used as a daily. I’m fairly mechanically incompetent and just don’t have the confidence or tools to tackle anything substantial so unless it’s really basic work, it’ll be worked on by professionals. I don’t plan on getting rid of this car

    As per title, after something pretty special/mint if possible that needs little to no work. will pay the right money for the right car. Many thanks.
