Looks very clean and tidy mate, you have a great little helper there too. I like the updated dials, gives it a newer look.

Cheers mate. Yes my stepson jake loves to help but secretly I think he just loves the bubbles lol
Its a very clean car for a 12 yr old car. Goes well too. Yh the fis went on my old dials so got those for 55.00 off eBay with the r32 vents too off the same guy.
The Rline gearknob was a tenner from scrapyard complete with gaiter lol
Got a few things sort at home and then I'll treat her to a few goodies lol.

Been told it's possibly the fanbelt. I'm going get it changed and then if it's not that the mechanic is going have a look next week. I couldn't believe how heavy the brakes are.... fuck me I looked a right pick trying pick them up with 1 hand lol.

Brakes are on. Replacement fanbelt sorted the noise I was getting... service has tightened everything up. Much more responsive and together now. Now for a wheel refurbished and 4motion valances... may get an induction kit raaaspyv5 what kit have you got for your custom job thinking of aluminium pipe from larkspeed with k&n cone filter or just a bmc carbon panel filter?
