I had the coolant system tested the other day and found out that it was exhaust gasses causing the system to presurise :(

after the 1st garage turning it away because they couldn't get it on the ramp

i took it elswhere and got it booked in for the thursday befor edition .

after a phonecall at 1 telling me it had failed .i thought balls there is no way its making it to edition

 

I told them to carry out the work to gwt it to pass and told them i would pic it up monday .

 

then came the phonecall !!

IT PASSED

 

with only a few hours of light left i ran down there and picked the car up .

 

drove home and sarted to prep

Fitted the gti trim

 

waited for them to dry and then headed up to studio in car. for a late night prep sesh with shakey audry tommy86 and MTW off here

 

got the wheels on but had to wash it in the dark

.so

At half 8 i get a call from tom .

 

letting me know is lovely new freshly refurbed 16"rs had fallen off on the way to the meet point .

So we went on a rescue mission after picking up an engine crane from sic
