Just given the raider an oil change as the engine we put in Sunday was producing quite a lot of sludge around the filler cap but it had been sat for 2+ years so hopefully it is just lots of moisture in it. What a pig the oil filter is to get at. Also I should hopefully be picking up my afr kit tomorrow night so I can get it set up right (andy bond) and then see how it runs properly.  My dad picked up a tungy one yesterday so I'll try and get some pics of that up. Also on Sunday I put a front mounted oil cooler on and a turbo technics t25 s117 turbo with a .63 back end, might sell my t25 if I like this one. Lol

The oil filter can be a bit tricky to remove if it's been stubborn. Doesn't help the fact that they aren't really big enough to get a good grip with.

Usually i remove the front grill and stick my arm through that way, i've also reached through the drivers wheel arch before.

Yeah I've got the grill out but my oil cooler pipes at in the way and a rad hose is in the way just a pain. Lol

It's been such a long time since i posted on here thought i'd put pictures of some updates up. since i posted last its now  got genuine williams alloys on refurbed and painted dark anthracite, morrettes fitted, drivers seat repaired by my girlfriends mum as it was ripped up terribly, a full bareblock engine rebuild unfortunitely the pictures of this are on my broken phone will try to get them off. Thats about it really although at the end of the month i'll be getting my new exhaust.
