I took it up to FQ Performance at the weekend to have the diff serviced and that bearing changed so we're friends now  :lol:
Turned the boost down to a bar as it kept hitting the fuel cut and giving me whip lash  :(

I'm still finding my way around it gradually.

How about your's?

Yeah cars fine, nice & fast but it may have to go as I'm really starting to struggle with the fuel bills now with a large family  :(
Really don't know what I'd end up with though after owning the evo  :?

Ah, thats bad news. They are thirsty things though  :(  Still getting over 200 miles from a tank so its better than my KA was  :lol: Just harder to park.

I'm with James on the GTT idea  8)
I drove mine yesterday and I loved it, even with the BMX flying around in the back  :D

I might pinch the BMX idea.

Save a fortune on breakdown cover.  :lol:

I finally got around to giving the V a good wash and polish. Even clayed the doors... then just wanted to make it shiney  :lol:
I'd reccomend claying to anyone, it makes the paint feel silky smooth  :mrgreen:

I went to show a mate how to wax and polish his car earlier. Gave mine a quick wash and polish again too  :cool:


Then I remembered seeing some amazing photos somewhere and thouht I'd give it a shot.
These were done with a point and click camera, an inspection lamp and a torch... hope you likey, let me know what you think.
















The camera ran out of power, and I need to learn how to adjust the focus manually, then I'll have another go  :D
Oh, and we should've waited till it was darker too, haha.

I thought I'd share the changes to the Evo  :D
Engine bay isn't finished yet. Going to paint some little bits red to make it pretty. And carry on across the bulk head with the chequer.

I needed a new fog light after finding it was corroded inside so I thought the old one could be improved  :D  and can go on in the morning.


A few subtle bits outside and rear window stickers.

(beading away  :lol: )

I bought a big sheet of matte black vinyl (that can take higher temps apparently), and cut hundreds of 1'' squares  :lol:  A bit of a cheat but it still took a lot of time and effort. The spark plug cover was all painted though. I was very proud of that  :D

I had some time today so got on with the last few bits I wanted to do for now.
 :D
