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

Well lets just say, your reasons were not valid.

I think i've done well, I've got a realiable car, the Clio is up for sale at the mo with no biters because its a shed and he's uncovered even more money that needs to be spent on it.

Even with spending money on mods whilst I have money I am spending it on fun instead of repairs on the Clio :)

I've only spent £200 on mods on this car and i've had it 3-4 months :D

It really was. It was worth nothing, too many problems, needed work, no resale value.

The only annoying thing is the insurance cock up because i've been skint, but this is the last month I have to pay for it and also all other debts will be cleared so I will free up lots of money :)

But yeah, can't argue with a car that has loads of history, all the bits done and is mint as oppose to the Clio :lol:

It's not Monday yet :P

The figure in my head is £200 a side. So £400 overall. I think i'd go to £450 max. I don't want to be paying more than that tbh, i'd just go for wheels and once it gets really bad in a year or two decide what to do with the car

One thing that really sticks in my head is people get bodywork sorted and then some bint crashes into them, I would literally want to kill myself if that happened :lol: complete waste of cash.

Time to stance the fucker up! New wheels and coilies will transform this thing.

Don't need handling until I build it into a track car + i've never found handling to be "ruined" when slamming a car :D
