Got told to come to a meet of tyresmokers by steve, and glad i did. Cool cars, nice peeps and good food. Will deffo pop along next month. Dunno if an intro is the 'done thing' but thought i'd bosh one up anyway.
Anyhoo quick couple o words about myself, i'm currently a stoodent at bournemouth uni, doing law. Which gets in the way of car tinkering somewhat (how dare it). Think i'll be spending most my time in the classic bit of this forum.
My kinda daily is a volvo 240 estate (yaawn i know). This one has been lowered around 4 and-a-bit inches all round though, needs to come down another inch or two up front. Only got it a couple of weeks ago so not had time to do anything to it. Eventual idea is 740turbo power:
Cos you know that's how we roll here in Herts
My long term project is my capri 2.0, there is nothing complicated about it, just the usual lowering, hot pinto and nice brakes but for some reason it's taken me since last year. Did use it as a daily for a while though, can we say scary rat ride?
It with my old viva before the viva got nicked:
This one i just got to flog on, so am currently floggin
This is the keeper, that has currently been through a couple of heads, a block or two and endless other work just to keep the bastid going. So i've had enough with the old skool tech, in october it's going to coltech customs in bournemouth for a SR20DET conversion.
The saab that i was boring some people with at the meet, currently waiting for it's gearbox to be changed (surpsrise surprise).
Mate of mine helping out to get the engine out to get gearbox off and new un in:
Finally my P5 that is currently mid-way (aren't they all) through getting a V8 from a donor P5 i have, bolted in. Flew up to kilmarnock to get this un, and drive it back to london...it made it as far as newcastle
What's coming out:
Oh and the focus:
