i didnt realise you were literally trying to give it to me.lol i thought you meant to buy it.

Gearbox cleaned and fitted, have a look above how clean it is above...and the damage on my clutch :doh:

You got ONE ;) major advantage...lsd box.lol i really want one :(

also new manifold fitted...as below :) but as per usual with me engine looks nothing like this anymore :lolz: infact the new "look" is a little diffrent and odd but works so well in my opinion.

cheers buddy im not exactly happy with the time tho, i think once i got an LSD box it should make drastic diffrences. Fingers crossed.lol

considering yours had a stuck caliper it went damn well :)

Once i get the time this weekend ill upload my Ford fair pics! got a few of you on the track to :)

Ford fair was a brilliant day but to be honest I didn't even manage to cover the entire area to see everything and by the time i got back to my car i was knackered and just didnt want to move. So apologise to anyone if i seemed anti social was shattered.lol

If need be blame Paul he was up all night watching JVC :halo: :halo:

Or blame Meilack as he was calling my hotel room all night :hmm: :halo: :lolz: Damn pedro :lolz:

update:

Well i thought seeing as i changed a bit i will give an update! Some people know ive had this damn annoying problem of over 60mph my steering vibrates horribly. ive done tracking, rebalanced wheels, changed all bushes to polybushes and still cant find the cure...turned out after advise from a friend and looking through service history as its full :halo: the drivers side ball joint had never been changed in the life of the car :frown: :shock:

so bought to brand new ones for the bargain price of £6 each and fitted them last night...problem has gone away :wth: (you have no idea how much this has fried my head.lol)

Image

heres a pic of the drivers side one i took off, the passenger side was fine but thought id renew it anyway.lol

You cant really tell a lot from the picture how bad it is but there is no grease it has all dried up there's no force when trying to push it around just falls to diffrent angles and the worst part is it moves up and down about 4mm :shock: any more driving on the the ball would have ripped out at any point im 100% sure of that.

and as said earlier the engine colour has changed again, metallic black hammered affect which i really like! in total i put on a new coil pack, spark plugs, leads, lamba sensor, throttle position sensor, then clean up a few bits and sensors like maf.

I have colour coded with the hammered affect rocker cover, coil pack holder, strut tops, MAF housing, gearbox cradle, tie bar mounts, brake servo bar, water pipe across the front of the engine, the main engine block and wiper mech plate, clutch arm and probably a few little things i forgot.lol Also added a few more blue pipes and heated wrapped the intake and exhaust. The exhaust is wrapped right down passed the started. I've also fitted a fan which is damn tight now.

Image
Image
Image

o also fitted a little breather filter :P

Ive also started to go over the floor on the car to make it all white :) so when its all finished ill get her up in the air and take photos but you can see it in this picture slightly :)

Image
and just a random one for the sake of it.lol
Image

And one final note im over the moon i didn't have any serious mishaps on the way to Ford Fair or back, only one tiny problem that came across was the exhaust back box decided to pop of its back box which i though was random but put it back on and its fine.lol

Actually yes there is! i havent been online in a while as been super busy and net problems but all sorted now.lol Well no major updates to speak of im starting work on the underside of the car now. The entire floor has been clean off and painted to protect it the floor and it looks a million times better. I have also fitted a stronger xr2 pahnrod bar which im going to make adjustable in the future but thats been cleaned off and painted up along with the rear axle and the fuel tank has been done black to protect it! Also the 1.1 mk2s never came with anti roll bars etc so ive managed to obtain one with brackets which im in the middle of fixing up and fitting shortly but they will be fitted with poly bushes as im doing the entire rear end polybushes so then the entire car has uprated bushes all around.
Image
Image
Image
Also my Capri pepper pots are now white which I think looks a million times better than it did!
Image
Image
Image
And the only other little thing is ive fitted xr2 clocks so I can see what speed shes doing past 110 :P
Also with the benefit of a rev gauge as well :)
And heres a quick pic of the anti roll bar
Image
Oooo I nearly forgot as well! I gave the washer bottle a damn good clean inside and out using hot water, a lot of washing powder and marbles as the marbles rub the dirt off inside without damaging it.
Before:
Image
After:
Image
Comments welcome :)
