Funny how that works quite well, certainly makes it look lower.

You have really done something with this car, it is not at all what the factory intended and has so much impact because of it. cheers

FAILED MOT 2DAY

Not too bad consdering tis 20 years old

1) Rear brake compensator seized (wire brush and wd40 will sort that)
2) Middle rear seat belt not tested (managed to trap it under seat!!-DOH!)
3) Hazard lights defective when fog lights are on (will get my master tech to sort this out saturday!!)

Considering i thought i was goin to get a failure certificate longer than 'War and peace'
MOT Station said it was completly rust free and in excellant conditon!!, which lightened my spirits

Looking good mate, the re done roof looks alot better.

Shame about the MOT Sad, but as you say, not a bad list considering its age. Probably has alot to do with the fact it never got rained on in SA! LOL!

Whens the track day? Have a good one doing that! Very Jealous!
