    Racing blue 182

    I’ve been meaning to do one of these for a while now. Mostly to keep a track of all the changes and watch the car develop into a more track focused car. I bought the car from my good friend @djwjohn in September 2017 with the intention of turning it into a well specced track focused car. I’ve...

    Spotted white 172, cup I think. In Aviemore. Followed me along the main drag, when I turned into the B&B gave us a wave back. Anyone on here?

    KubiSport #2

    Thought I would start a thread about my van. Mostly because it's Sunday and I'm bored and another way of seeing how far it's came. After running about with @Mickb and his F4r swapped Nissan Kubistar van a few years back I somehow talked myself into needing one. I kept an eye on all the usual...

    New car Evo content

    Well after having a moment of madness and deciding to sell all of my Clio's (3.5 of them) I decided to jump and get something I'd hankered after for a while, an evo. It had to be a 5 for me, I think they are the most aggressive looking. I actually did a deal with a Lad on here for my ph1 and...

    Quick ball joint question

    Looking to swap the bottom ball joints on the cup. My local factor has the same ones listed for cup and non cup. Is this correct? I know there's a difference in wishbones but is there any difference for the ball joints? Thanks guys.

    For years we've talked about doing a track car project and sort of have done by using our road cars/ a share of another track car on track last year.

    Flame red ph1 172 {take 2}

    Though I'd best start a project thread for my new flamer. This is now my second ph1 flamer, and the second flamer i've bought off my close friend Djw John. After John had it, this car was sold to Yeecup who enjoyed it untill the belt slipped and destroyed 14 of the valves. Confirmed by SWR the...

    Seized coilover adjuster rings...

    Long story short i got a set of Seized Fk's on the Clio i bought. Ive been trying to get them moving again. How after much swearing, blood, and tears i got to the last shock and found a crack in one of the adjuster rings. Pain in the hoop. I've had a look on the FK website, the UK one is a...

    Ast top mounts.

    I searched this, but needing advice. I see that they need to be either spec'd to the coilover unit or machined to allow fitment. I got these on a car and have now transfered them onto my flamer. I was never sure if all was "right" on the car they came off of. Now im sure they arn't! I have a...

    Another one to add to the fleet...

    As some may know i recently bought .Gaz. 's tidy iceburg 172. Thought i'd start a wee thread about it. Bought it for the Girlfriend to replace our Mk4 Golf gti. As it's for her some of the more fancy bits will be removed for my trackday 172, but overall shouldn't change too much. A few pics...

    Roof tar.

    Is there any reason to not remove the tar from the roof from a stripped 1*2? My boss seems to think that it adds some rigidity to the panel, but i cant see that being true. I'd like to remove it as i've removed the rest of the tar, but there seems to be some people saying "yes you can" and...

    Boness Hill Climb

    Nipped up to this with Djw John on sunday for a few hours. Good day out, with some lovely cars. Felt a bit out of place with my lack of flat cap/beard combo though. Loved the roof mech on this old Bently. And a merc with awesome brakes in the carpark...

    Bye bye flamer Feb09-feb11

    Thought i'd put up a few pics from my ownership of my flamer. I've enjoyed every min of having the car, which shows as its the longest i've kept a car. Was going to keep it and track it but as i now have a 4 month old boy whos pram or car seat wont fit in it, it made sense to sell. I know the...

    Bucket seat mounting

    I've been offered a cobra imola at a good price from a friend. It includes side mounts, will these mount onto the original frames in the 72 or will I require something else to get it fitted? Cheers
