Last couple of days I have done:

Rust hunting/ Smashing the fuck out of bits with a hammer and screwdriver. No holes made. So under side is solid still. Win.
Got rid of scabby surfact rust/bubbling paint on front panel. Then undersealed it.
Re-undersealed the whole under side of the car - inside the arches to do another day.
Stripped down front suspension for a clean up and inspection.
Greased up all the poly bushes at the front as there is a annoying as fucking squeeking noise.
Changed lower arms for camber adjustable ones.
Fucked a lower arm pinch bolt.
Temp adjustment on tracking.
General check of bolts here and there for the sake of it.
Made a shitty cold air feed to help combat heat soak.

Tomorrows/later this weeks jobs are:

Replace fucked lower arm pinch bolt.
Fit standard cross over intake pipe and put the K&N filter on that. Probs ditching the banana pipe from now on as its fucking shit even with the mods to stiffen it up.
Strip down and clean rear suspension.
Paint/underseal all the arches.
General clean up of the engine bay.
Give it a service - plugs, oil, filter ect.

I think thats it.

That was yesterday, and therefore, not in keeping with the title of the topic. Ergo, that post is nullified :)
