What did you do to your GTA today?

I'll get the ball rolling:

-Fitted some new GTA Momo pedals.
-Added some new braided brake lines to my shopping cart.

Working hard there -- the add to cart button can be tough - I wire brushed a rusty old OEM backbox to get the worst of the rust off, and then applied some Kurust. Going to spray paint with VHT paint later, ready for trackday Just hope fitting it is as easy

search for the correct tool to remove the yaw sensor from the bracket. it looks like a security/tamper proof screw and my torx 25/27/30 dont seem to fit.

I am also playing with the cruise control now that it is working again, replaced clutch switch.

That is nothing I saw a black aventador in Brighton today and it really was like a monsoon at the time. Goes to show how far super cars have come that you can take a 700bhp Italian car out in this weather

Drove it like I stole it... ok its not a GTA, but a GT with a 3.2 is close enough.

Collected a 72x50x25 inch box, folded it and transported it in the car to store my old bumpers while awaiting an upcoming novitec body kit.

Took the mower for a service. Forgot it was in the back even though the seats were down. Was annoyed by an Audi TT. You can guess the rest!

I polished a 4" patch over the rear arch to compare polishes after a nice conversation with a spray shop guy!

Then had some fun bedding in the new brakes!

Can those rubber straps be ordered ? I really need one.

PS. Filled the gearbox with oil, it's leaking for some reason

Took one of my lads and his friends to football practice. The boys commented how 'epic' the car is. Lol
