So another busy and fun filled Friday with the five decide to change the clutch as it was slipping. Me and Dave started on her at 11:00 and called it a day at midnight. We got the old engine in and new clutch on reasonly quick it was just getting it all back together again that took the time and finding out why she won't start. Here's a couple pic for you.

Yes mate it's called a towing eye cover mate. You can get them from rtoc which is the other owners club or mike at gt turbo spares. Thanks mate the willy wheels are powder coated gloss black so they shine.

Done a wheel change to the 5 as the snow has gone now. I need to raise the torsion bar up a bit as the profile on the tyres is to big for the back bumper. I've also got rid of the dv thank good really starts to wear thin after 400 miles lol.
Heres a couple of pics

That looks wicked. Love the contrasting wheels n bonnet. Id say if your gonna repaint it in your resto then a creamier white would suit it well good

She's getting treated to a fresh set of willy wheels mate gloss black. A creamier white not to sure mate maybe.

she is a tidy 5 with tlc needed to the body work but the engine is sound and goes well. My plan for her is to tidy the body up and go for the infamous 200 bhp figure so will need a full T25 with the spec of the car.
