just thought I'd share my acheivements from this weekend on my 98 Phase 1
the most time consuming was the wishbones - I hated every minute (a snapped balljoint retaining bolt n/s, and the other side was also a fatherless son to get out)
front wishbones - done
droplinks - done
split cv sticky boot jobby o/s outer - done
fit new oil/water coolant exchanger & oil/filter change & flush of cooling system - done
tweak of the exhaust mount to stop it bashing the subframe - done
set of phase two alloys fitted - done
fix door release (with an old porsche brass pedal box bush - perfect fit and no more elbowing my way out of the car anymore
) - done
rear no plate bulb - done
front sidelight bulb -done
ok.. the last two werent hard but nice to have them ticked off the list and i still have a few doubtfull points for the upcoming mot...
small silencer after cat rotting
and who knows with the rear bushes, allthough i couldnt see any that looked visibly shot.
just praying the tester will be gentle kind to the old girl.
a few cold beers and sit down to dinner with top gear on later and all will be well (apart from my aching limbs and grazed knuckles
