Well i got going on this 1 today as FCS is only 11 weeks away and i cant really see the Rallye being done in time, fitted a new battery with new clamps, new earth lead, new clutch cable gave it an oil/filter change and then got striping i removed glass, rubbers, mirrors lights etc etc all just to give it a good clean as i havent really given it a proper clean for 3 years

New wheels, alternator and aux belt idler pulley being fitted next week sometime

its just to give it a good clean, fed up of dirt running out from joints etc when it gets wet and as its stood for best part of the last 2 years there was a lot of green everywhere.

with all weight gone i'd expect to get an extra 2-3MPG and hit 60 .3 of a sec quicker with all the wax Smile every little helps when the fuel prices are so high

I can get my low level michelin jack under no problem, but i left that at the other workshop so the jack i got now needs me to drive up on a bit of wood

I'm not sure if it is lower or not as the wheels are wider there is more of a stretch so it theory the thread is closer to the rim so could well be
