Re: Mk1 827 Si Saloon

That does look an awkward place to weld, surprised you had enough room to get your head in

Re: Shaun's Vitesse

It's not the smoothest engine in the world and does vibrate a touch. Not overly concerned just wondered if there was something sensitive in the throttle body to make them use the rubber mount

Re: Shaun's Vitesse

Well, after changing the rubber throttle body mount for the third time I decided to take the plunge and buy one of the solid ones from Ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/222464224985?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Whilst out last week noticed it was ticking over a bit fast an...

Re: Mk1 827 Si Saloon

Coming along well. The fabrication and welding I think are my favourite parts of car renovation, love to see the transformation pics. Keep up the great work

Re: Alucard7002 - Mk2b 820Si Fastback - Pic Heavy!

In other news I took the car for it's MOT on Saturday - Passed with flying colours with the exception of the crack in the windscreen on the passenger side - £90 excess on my policy to get it replaced so at some point I'll do that. Good news on the test, hope you have better luck than me with the wi...

Re: Mk1 827 Si Saloon

Bit of luck with wheel arch, saved a lot fabricating.

^^^^^^^^^ Agreed.

Re: Mk1 827 Si Saloon

Can't beat a bit of good weather for chopping bits of your car off. Satisfying getting rid of the rot though. Keep up the good work

Re: Shaun's Vitesse

I have been running around for a week or two with some ATF in the engine oil so thought it about time to replace it and change the filter. Ah.......it seems I have been using the wrong filter. During my ownership of the car I have never had one this big before. Numerous oil and filter changes over t...

Some good work there and not hanging around either :shock:
