Followed closely by the wishbone. Far easier to change the whole thing rather then struggling your balls off trying to push the old bushes out.

That box looks alot cleaner than when i last saw it, what are you cleaning it with ??
Also did you get a new wishbone yet, if not don't forget to get it with the bushes pressed out if you get it from Bob, then you can fit the poly's straight in as they're easy ;)

Im using GUNK to get most of the dirt off and then BRAKE CLEANER to get the rest off.

I havent got the wishbone yet, im going to order it and a few other bits on Monday.

Hi Guys,  

Ive been really busy at work and havent had much time in the last couple of weeks to get the car running.  :(

Im hopefully going to order the last few bits either this weekend or next.

I sold the spoiler and relised that i now need a new boot because my ones full of holes.... :(

Hopefully i should have it finished at the end of November. :)

Campus one will fit if you can find a GTT one, you will have to stick the spoiler on though, or run without one :)

I have decided to stop the project at the moment because of work being busy.

I am thinking of selling the car in bits or as a hole car?  :(

And then getting a running one that is ready to go on the road.

Its a shame really because i really wanted to get it running but due to work i have no more time to spend on it at weekends.

Thank you to everyone including Steve and James who were a really big help. Cheers! :)
