Diss 4?

Any thoughts about this yet? Can we go for Wednesday 9th May as I'm at Snetterton all day anyway, so have got to drive through/around Diss anyway to get home.

rallye failed mot today so may still be short on funds, also has slight play in near side rear beam only as advisory though, i have new bearings but my twat of a mechanic doesnt want to do it, as he thinks the stub pin will be nackard but we had it apart like 2 years ago didnt we mankee and fitted all new seals etc so i rekon the bearings will soak up the play and hopefully the stub pin will be okay...... you free over the next couple of months to offer your services mate if not we could make june the fix quins rear beam meet lots more people to swear at it might help

Maybe the Old Ram again? I quite like it in there, plus it has a big car park, which could be useful as I might have a trailer with me. No Ultimate Mixed Grill this time though. Not unless I can get some prior warning to do some training for it!

Quin, shame about the Rallye. What did it fail on? Was it 2 years ago that we looked at the beam? I can't remember now! Think best idea is probably get it apart and take a look at it. That Simon bloke is quite useful. Could have a "garage weekend" when the weather gets nicer and it stops hailing randomly.

the place is normally dead lenient but i didn't realise 'till i got there my usual tester is on holiday so there's cover from a bloke from a nearby garage, who it would seem is picky as fuk as none of that rust (except n/s rear inner arch) was noted last year and it hasn't gone from nothing to "excessive" in a year.... unless its some kind of fast growing rallye eating mutant rust! never mind

whooo got it back felt weird not having it for 5 days! its had the inner rear arch welded, some welding on the sills, and a bit near the fuel pipe, all undersealed, then new brake lines to rear, new rear wheel bearing, new rubbers on the exhaust backbox and an off side track rod end + tracking and the mot

parts - 80.72 labour 120 then mot and the vat --> 275.86 didnt really think that was bad at all what yall rekon? track rod end has made a lovely difference actually corners without shaking your arms off, but ill just have to do the beam at some point in a few months, so potentially im number 5 on the list for the next meet


ps simon dont forget my steelie this time

Provided I can get my car pointing straight, yes. Scared myself silly coming back from yours in the rain!

I'm going to try the string box method this weekend. What's the worst that can happen?
