TYC €40.- a piece
Cleared off the 'Red Shelf', dusted the old girl down and woke her up from her winter siesta for a run to Guildford for the eldests rugby tournament.
Took the chance to update the To-Do list too:
Get the wee bit of rot on the tailgate sorted
Replace or refurb the gas struts on same
fix the poxy handbrake gaiter
sort out whatevers gone weird in the switch for the passenger window
Get all the grime off the enginebay
New tyres on the competition wheels
and haul the old girl over to see Ed sometime, get a proper 'state of the nation' done and maybe new injectors and a fresh map done.
Any day now I'm going to have to get the rear arches sorted. - Anyone know how much money I need to put aside given that the inner arches (i.e. around the strut tower) are what I'm worried about more than the external arch?
Prices vary massively depending on quality of work as well. Depends how much they cut out and weld in. Weather you have donar bits to weld in if req. sometimes decent welders can do great job cheap but body shop will always blame them and charge more. It’s finding someone good who can do the whole job at fair price. ( a lot of hours go in) see what others think but it’s £500 ish for outer arches so additional work alow another £300-500 but I am interested to see what others think
warpspeed will be able to give you an good idea of a typical senario
had a bit of a winter update:
power flex engine mounts all round,
new break servo fitted,
my Competition Clutch re padded thanks to the guys at Questmead,
custom made front and rear engine stabilisers from Brooks Racing Developments,
and the biggie a brand new Quaife gear-set,
this weekend hopefully but all that stuff back together and drive-able
After being financially raped over the last couple of months due to:
BMW E90 turbo blowing
DPF packing up
Starter motor packing up
2 new rear tyres
Auto gearbox reprogramming.
i'm a couple of ££££ lighter.
So, yesterday i finally found the time to take the SR20 gearbox off. Hoorah!! And i was surprised at how easy and light it was. Now i can really start stripping it down and buying parts. Yay!
rear spoiler and under headlight trim fitted, all that left is the bumpers!
