To Finish The Car or Not ! ! !

Post by niz406 » Thu Sep 15, 2005 10:17 am

ok guys,

So I just spent like the last three days sorting my car out ! ! ! so far this is the work that I have done:

New Crankshaft Bearing seal ( behind flywheel)
Skimmed flywheel
Fitted new clutch kit
Fitted Second Hyudralic Clutch assembly
Taken Exhaust to have Cat back on
Refitted gearbox
Refitted Intercooler & pipes
Radiator & pipes

Left to do is:

Fill gearbox with tranny fluid
Attach exhaust
Replace wishbone bushes
remount cross member
replace front discs and pads
Replace handbrake shoes and possibly discs and pads, depends on inspection ! ! !

Then but it throught its MOT tomorrow @ 2pm- THE PROBLEM:

Its absolutly chucking it down with rain and its cold, do I go out in my wet weather gear and plod on to get it done.. or do I quit and wait for the sun and play some games for a bit:)

The problem is the self imposed MOT deadline mate. Personally I'd leave it well alone. Crawling about under cars is unplesant enough at the best of times, let alone when you're crawling in a couple of inches of water. Nice weather forecast for the weekend - leave it 'till then if you can wait!

Well I gave up because the rain got too much, I was soaking absolutly everything from my T-Shirt, Boxers and socks ! ! and I was wearing overalls and a jumper just so you know how many layers ! ! !

The shower turned into a hurricane and I got soaked ! ! ! so I thre a tanturm and packed everything away.... man I hate not having a workshop.. Stupid car parking area ! and there my old man stands with a smile on his face in his super sized work shop wree he plays with wood ! ! ! you think he'd let me use it for my subframe but NO cannot get any oil or grease on his floor ! !

OK OK rant over, well its gonna have to wait for the weekend, theres a place where I can just take it and get it MOT'd there and then, whilst you wait.. but they close @ 12:30 so I really really need to get it done Tomorrow !
