changed my mind again!

update from yesterday....

i went to the bodyshop and did a few bits...

seats were all out of line, so examined them to see why?



this was the problem...



so i removed the drivers seat side mounts and used the passenger side mounts as a temporary fix to test make sure nothing else was bent.



check bottom brace, its bent!! too much corner kerb rapage



trial fitted my wing and door



i also,

* re mounted the battery back in the correct postion, as it had jumped out of place!

* removed headlamps so i can get a new passenger side one and make sure the other is sealed 100%

* took wheels off, because i've got him to repaint two of them and paint me two more fresh VTS rims.

* removed exhaust and filter for re sale.

BTW its not going back to standard anymore, i'm keeping her a bit longer, so..

booked more work in, tailgate and rear bumper will be getting blown over, as will the passenger side front wing and door.

looking to be present at Cadwell in Feb, not sure wether i'll be on track of not yet though

think if ya running slicks like 888's ya ok

but i have read and been told that proper fill on slicks have sucj a hard tyre wall that a baffled sump is recomended to stop oil starvation as the car stays flat but the oil is forced to one side by the G's

could be wrong though

Are you having to pay this all yourself or did you have track cover, Westy?
