as expected lol.

Front headlight loose (the clip was in my coat pocket)
N/S beam to low (well it would be if it was loose lol)
White side indicators (to tight for silver ones haha)
'non conforming' plates
and

N/S Anti-roll bar bracket broken (whoops!)

Mended the easy stuff, and bought some focus repeaters in the process. Off to dads mate for new rad hose, breaks to be looked at (feel a bit crap, suprised they didnt fail) and maybe a clutch adjustment.

Also today taxed the car( ?170 :o ), bought some legal plates and some new rims. Thats ?400 in a morning. Also had to go cop shop for my 7-day for the plates

anyone else been busy today :lol:

?2.75 from Ford mate. Bushes are a little extra.

My O/S one had snapped too (as it did on my old Si), so got them all replaced on the rear :)

Sorry to hear about the fail, but at least you are getting it all sorted and not just giving in :D

If you look at the back of your motor underneath the rear, you will see 2 rubber things each end that join near your rear beam and the bottom of your suspension strut, they are the anti-roll bar brackets, when they get old they split.
