Collected this earlier today, will be getting the spare ERST LSD box fitted this week, MOT'd, and then taxed on the 1st.

Fair few little things I wanna do, but nothing major.. I'm not painting it another colour either! :lolz:

More pics and info as it all happens :)

Mark got cracking on it after I went home :lol:

Well we have an issue with the shafts at the moment, struggling to fit the drivers side shaft, seems to have 5mm or so left to go into the box, also mark seems to think the passenger side shaft feels too short, although im not sure what he means, as I havent seen it :lol:

Abit stumped at why the drivers shaft wont fit in the box :look:

Get this box / shaft issue sorted, mot, tax.
Coilovers, poly's, mental spec rear beam from the ka project, rs2k rears, few interior things and thats about it :)
