Cheers ben.

Powerflex hanger now fitted, realy tight fit so plenty of grease needed but certainly feels solid in comparison to standard. Cant wait swap bushes for powerflex ones as I bet it feels massively different.

Figured I may aswell update this with recent goings on.

about 2 week ago it had its MOT failed on lower arms so had them done and passed. All tyres will need replacing soon though so gonna be on the search for some at a decent price.

Problems that have occurred this past week or so are it has a coolant leak on the water rail (Im pretty sure its called a water rail, its the plastic pipe that runs above the radiator with several hoses connected to it) but I cant find a replacement.

also the auxiliary belt or whatever you prefer to call it is on its way out (aint lifted the bonnet in a while lol) so just now iv orders a new one along with a new rear wiper and some other bits and bobs.

Sorry to hear about the MOT Lou, always something :banghead:

At least its sorted now anyway :thumbsup:

Try camskill for the tyres, got mine from there and they were a great price, and got a free £50 fuel voucher (get one if you buy two tyres or more off them at once)

Cars like keeping us busy :rolleyes:

body work is looking shoddy, its amazing how much damage footballs do.
Iv gotta big jock off scratch on the back and the gritters from last winter have resulted in some bubbling on the rear arches. again another reason for a drive.

I love the car as it drives well but some times I feel like starting again with a focus ST when I get a new house.
Its all bloody money lol.
