Looking good karl glad you have got it on the road as its been a long time and i am sure you have done a great job just wait until you have run it in and the boost is back up to 26psi then you will enjoy it even more

looking forward to seeing it have you finished under the bonnet

Good stuff mate, its much easier when its at home aint it? If you get pissed off you can just leave it and come back when you're ready.

Speaking off being pissed off, i've not touched or even looked at mine since the blackpool trip & i've been half tempted to put it back to standard but after reading a few posts on here about what other folk are doing with theirs i've got a sudden enthusiasm again. PF's great innit

Set just about halfway, mate. Chris spec'd the spring rates but I'm not sure what they are.

It's quite firm, but I've been in worse lol I couldn't live with it for everyday use though..

karl i am sure you have done a top job as with all you other cars

it may look mint on the pics put it had a couple of chips here and there so the best way of getting rid instead of just paiting odd panels was to give it all a nice coat of gloss black
