I started my driving life with a 106 ( dont hate me) but soon rear ended another car with it shortly after passing my test back in 2007.

This was followed shortly after by my much loved and moded Posi Blue VTR. After encountering my first problem, a quick internet search ended me up discovering Sax-P .

Much money, blood, sweat, miles and years later here I am with (another) mint Saxo which has so far lasted longer than my last one only because it was taken off the road to preserve/work on it. Below is the story of how its gone so far

Work started on the new vts already, some bits needed done. Other bits were changed cause i had them lying around from my old mk1

Plasmas went in after a bit of a fight

ready...


damn, oil light's out ...


So took them back out and sorted the wiring which had come apart. While I was tinkering i thought i'd try and source what I reckoned to be my misfire problem... found it! The lambda isnt plugged...

Yes you read it right. Yet again i've been drawn back to the 'french tin cans' but with good reason...

Put the corsa up for sale as wanted to see what interest there was in it/wanted a change.

Was all set to swap it for a white glanza last friday but on the thursday I night I finally remembere to HPI check it. Was a bit gutted to find it was a CatC write off in June last year. Current owner knew nothing about it but contacted the last owner who told him the details.

Apparently it was written off as it was broken into, the drivers door damaged and window...

Engine is pretty much all back together now. Think i have a leak from the top heater matrix hose but cant find the source of it.... strange! Will have another look tommorow

Bonnet and grille were taken to my mates on monday he had them sprayed and ready to pick up yesterday (tuesday) which was great! £60 all in too One thing learned though, dont try and remove a bonnet yourself if your trying not to scratch it

Almost got my oil catch tank fitted too but...

Not all my e-mails are bad I guess

Posted 10th February 2010 at 07:54 by mtpagey (My fourth and final VT)

I'm hating having to open my e-mails these days as my prelims are coming up for the two highers i'm doing at college but got one this morning that made me smile.

Weekend Plans

Posted 4th February 2010 at 22:42 by mtpagey (My fourth and final VT)

Other than heading to the football to see the Rovers put Aberdeen out the cup on Saturday, I've no plans so hoping to make a start on the saxo.

Hoping to get all the flocked bits fitted, clocks apart to change the led's, steering wheel off ready to be swapped over... may even attempt to change the hoses weather dependant

pics of progress will come obviously if i cant be bothered to mod then i may jsut give it a good whoring with my new stuff

Three an a half years after buying my vtr, im now on my third vts. Those of you may remember me writing off my (mint) Posi Blue Mk1. For those that don't, heres the links (pictures and info on the first pages)
Mk1 VTS arrives
End of the VTS
Pictures of it the right way up

After picking up another Mk1 low mileage standard green vts, i never really grew to like it so was always on the lookout for something better.



After a 20 hour round trip to south wales, I was the proud...
