The End.

Well, We've finally moved out of the nice house with the SHITE neighbours!

Not got the garage any more but the new place has a car port. It's not as good but it does provide a little protection from the wind but it leaks like buggery when it rains!

Any way. Got all the stuff to the new place and thought i'd start to strip the VTR down ready for transplanting all the VTS stuff on to it. Jacked her up to hear the sound of rust cracking. thought i'd rip the interior out to check inside and found everything that normally goes on these had gone! I mean litterally... There...

April 25th. cash diversion continues.

Posted 25th April 2012 at 12:25 by NismoSteve

Well coming to the end of the month, and we had a house sorted, then it fell through at the last minute
We are continuing to save up which means there is no money available for the car, well very little anyway.

I've just got some new diff seals, as there is a small puddle of gear oil left on the floor at work when its been stood a couple of days.
I need to get my original struts rebuilt with the spring cups welded and new wheel bearings in. I'd like some B8 billies but there is no spare cash for those.
So it looks like it ill just be rebuilt struts with...

1st April depressing news.

Posted 2nd April 2012 at 06:40 by NismoSteve

Dues to family crisis we are having to move. We have no place to move to, she is going to stay with her mother and as I'm a lorry driver I'll be staying out in the truck most of the week and joining her at weekends. This means I have now lost my garage. All of our stuff is having to go into storage along with all my garage stuff, car parts and tools.
I'm well pissed off but needs must.
I fitted the new lower arms, well the offside one as when I fitted the nearside arm it appeared that the new balljoint is loose in the arm.
So I got both of the coilovers fitted (the shit...

27th March, stuff arrives.

Posted 28th March 2012 at 09:36 by NismoSteve

Last week, a new clutch turned up along with a new clutch cable

And today I received some parts for the front suspension.
X2 refurbished wisbones sporting powerflex front bushes, new ball joints and new rear bushes.
Floflex anti roll bar bushes, another VT front roll bar, a pair of new drop links and a pair of new track rod ends. Along with new strut top bearings that should improve things at the front.

I have now decided to stuff the comforts and strip the car and go crazy with the power to weight ratio.
With me sat in the car its a porky...

Sunday 11th March. fitted some stuff.

Posted 12th March 2012 at 12:12 by NismoSteve

Well the alt belt slipping and being noisy was doing my head in, so finally got round to fitting the new belt. The adjustement bolt was well seized, had to use mole grips on the top part of the bolt as well as the 5mm Allen socket on the bottom.
Eventualy got it moving but damaged the threads with the mole grips.
Took it out in the end and rethreaded it, and ran a tap up the tensioner part too for good measure.
Covered the bolt in copper grease, fitted the new belt and tihtened it up.

Sadly there is still a bit of a squeaky belt noise, which frighteningly...
