Re: How to change gearbox 216

Ah the joys of motoring eh, needless to say I didn't achieve a great deal today, weather ! Il try tomorrow. The box I put in came from an 78k p reg tourer, and I'm sure it should last, worst case scenario it's not such a long job now after doing it already, il know what to look for and should shave ...

Re: How to change gearbox 216

Cheers rover man , got cracking onto it. Took me 2 days because of the weather! (rain again!). It wasn't too difficult , the only slight difficulties I had was getting to the rear bolt and slipping off the link rods. After a healthy amount of cursing and trying to re-align the new box up to the engi...

Re: My modified mk2 420 sli, + Tv's and Lighting+new project

I definitely want to keep the natural lines of the car, just thinking of some nice skirts , maybe remove the trims off the doors.

De-lock the rear doors, single wiper kit conversion, and most important ... A set of 17's!

Re: Update..Coolant level as it should and no more muck as y

Jeez that bay looks cleaner than mine by a long shot. If I started to think about the things mine would fail on I probably wouldnt bother ! Must admit I worry more about what I can't see than what I can, things like arb bushes , sills etc etc , but only way to know for sure is to put her through mot...

Re: My modified mk2 420 sli, + Tv's and Lighting+new project

After a little thought, I may even use this years show as more of a research year, allowing me more time to examine some of the other exhibits in more detail. I now have the urge to do some custom bodywork , but I'm not sure what. The hardest thing to do is what hasn't been done already, or hasn't b...

calling all R8's, possible meets?

Hey everyone, I'm just wondering if its possible for some, if not, all of us to arrange a day out in the Peak district as its fairly central to the UK.

Any ideas?
