Desert island for one while she comes to CSF haha
She hates driving it lol to noisy and too fast she wants her old car back a 2014 Astra Gtc sold it whilst she went out shopping with my mum when she came home she wasn't impressed
You sold your lasses 2 year old Astra GTC whilst she was out shopping with your mum? Legend! Bet you got scolded..
Yer scolded is an under statement it was my car I bought it new but I got the Clio at a bargain price couldn't turn it down so I used our savings with her permission and as soon as we got the Clio the Gtc was parked up and used at most twice a week sometimes not at all so because I had the Clio the Gtc was hers.So because it wasn't used as much when she went out with my mum I thought f__k it and sold it put money back in savings and that was that trouble is I haven't had the leg over in over a month as she's still not happy
Ticket now purchased
My exhaust is blowing like anything and won't have time to get it sorted before CSF so I'll be in the 182 that sounds like s**t when moving. Got the Friday before off to make it shiney so at least it might look good!
Don't forget to print it!
We won't be able to hear it over Sam's anyway so don't worry
I'll just drive behind/infront/along side so he can cover up the sound of mine then
Haha yeah sit behind me! Don't worry mines blowing also! Was going to nip to Tony Banks but couldn't be arsed
Just gave the car a quick polish and wax as I don't have time before next sat so she will just need a quick blast fri night!
Did some more prep to the car today..
Removed the brakes and ground the pads so they're more loose in the carriers as they were stuck before and having sticking Brakes when going for it isn't fun.
Fitted some metal bar to raise my seat and bring it more forward so it's better for track.
Got it aligned too. - 2 neg camber up front and 15 mins toe out. Always works perfectly for me.
Just needs a good hoover and clean on the outside!
Ready for the track time though.
Looking good pal! Is that down at Bram Racing? If so I'm down there in the morning getting springs & shocks fitted plus a full alignment!
Yes it is mate! Ahhh he said someone from cliosport called when I was there and was like I was the one I recommend them to. But i thought it was @bashracing who called!
I'd recommend getting a fast Road set up if you have camber bolts!
I can't recall mentioning Cliosport but it was a few weeks ago so I might have done. But in any case it was both yours and Bash's good comments about the place that made me book there, should hopefully have it all set up just in time for CSF
It was me, He couldn't fit me in saturday so I'm in tomorrow evening
CS keeping Bram in business at the moment, I was there on Friday!
Not sure I can be arsed getting to the m180 for 7am as Blyton is only 35 mins from there and don't want to get there super early.
I'm gonna go for the extra half hour in bed option!
If the car decides to start I'll be still coming, it's testing my patience atm
Springs shocks and full alignment done today, ready to go, also met @bashracing too, feel more educated about my cars suspension setup now!
Yeah nice to meet you Steve, sorry for the boring lecture on the benefits of the mk3 front suspension,
My rear axle was out, 40 minutes camber right rear, could feel that through my backside
Haha not at all mate it was appreciated! Me and Brad were scratching our heads about the setup for a while then you walked in and gave the full explanation and benefits of it in about 30secs! We just looked at eachother with a "well, there you go!" kind of expression
Not fixed it yet? Maybe it's the headlamps?
I thought it had been fixed! Had some wiring and connectors replaced but it's still doing it? Can't figure out what's causing it!
That's a bit s**t mate. I hope it starts Saturday am, if it won't at Blyton we might be able to find someone who knows about clios to have a look!
It may get me to Bylton but may go home with green flag It's been towed by green flag 4times Within 4month ownership haha
Should be giving Boris a right good clean inside and out Friday. Can't wait Going to fit some brake deflectors too as Blyton killed my brakes last time.
Things to do on Friday :
Fix loose exhaust.
Wire up phone charger.
All on Friday after a 12 hour night shift. Hmmm. It might get a wash. I'll just park at the back!
Ha yeah like you will clean your car I'll just risen mine off and dress the faded plastics haha
Faded plastics? I thought they were supposed to be grey. It always rains when i wash my car anyway so no point really.
I'm not keen on the grey look! I'll join you and park mine at the back!
Two more days!
It's tomorrow gents!
Anyone going to Blyton tomorrow a bit later in the morning, up for a meetup en route, either the M180 services or even nearer to Leeds?
I might actually go M62 A1 M18 then new Yorkshire Expressway Bawtry Gainsboro etc
Eh? Just go M62-M18. A1 is properly out the way!
Yay its sunny!
Annnnd pissing it down . I wish the weather would f**k off and just do one or the other so I can clean or not.
Wiring is done, I even managed to connect the aux in to the back of my radio and stuff another 30 miles of cable into the dash!
I just managed to clean the car dry it off then rain! So no wax on her! And I need to go out later so all the crap is gunna be stuck on the car
Sounds like we have all had a bad time haha! I managed to get it clean and just as started waxing it rained! So no wax on the bonnet or front bumper! People must of thought i was crazy wiping my car in the rain!
Lol. Mine hasn't been washed for a month! I'm hoping for a dry spell this evening, or I'll be earning it in the rain. Again. Stupid car shows!
