I'd forgotten about this.

Here's hoping you can get it sorted!

Had anywhere recommended?

From the moment I picked up your book until I laid it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.

I good old RAC friend is coming to have a better look an he knows a Guy form a body shop who has said for the distance it might just be a case of giving it a good smack as its so marginal.

Got a new bumber etc, not quite as good condition as the original was but I can get it resprayed later if needed, managed to find a blue rear ended furio (looks like a VTS) so stripped most of the front.

Guess you like it, the only wear and tear my has had is a lower arm and tires/brakes.

Most of the front end for other reasons of course.

With that its approaching 35k so still young.

I love it, completely standard but it's fun as hell! Changed 2 front springs and I'm gonna change the top mounts to the febi bilstein ones as I think one is knocking.

Mines on 68k! I thought that was low lol
