Haven't updated this in a while. Not alot has really happened as i am saving towards a place for me and the misses.

Heres what i have been upto:

This is where the xsi used to be kept - My dad went ape when he saw the grass.....or lack of.



He told my my car had to go.......he wanted me to trade it in against a new car - For him! So i decided to ask my grandad if i could rent/borrow his spare garage.

This is what i faced




Got the car out....started 1st time after a month (Also my 180bhp TDI Ibiza in the background)




After sorting out the garage the car was fitting back in with a bit more space to work. I had to put some of my grandads stuff back in.......hes 93........and would kick my ass all over the shop if i chucked it out!



This is only half the crap i took down the tip / tat man had off me.



Not much more left to tidy before i take my tool box down



Well now the toolbox is at my grandads.....and jeeeez its heavy really should of removed my tools:



With my tools with me i got to work on the xsi..........whilst it was hammering it down outside!
2 old rear shocks with 1 shiney Spax.........think i had already fitted the one




I then set to tackle the front. Complete leg off



I would of got the standard damper out but i had forgot my stiltons to get the locking nut off.

I have started to clean up the arches.

Before:

During:


Got a lick of hammerite on the front suspension legs. I have removed the standard dampers and will fit the spax when the legs are fully dry

Before:



After:



Legs built up with new spax dampers and 60mm spax springs



Got a couple of coats of hammerite on one of the arches



Started to bolt the suspension back in place



I have now got both arches painted up and the car back on the ground.

Here is a pic of the finished arch:



Also today my black battery box arrived. I think it may be slightly too big to go behind the passanger seat but i shall have ago at fitting.



As i finish work at 11:30 on fridays i thought i would go to my mates garage and get the tyres taken off the vtr wheels so i can put them on the 106 S1 rallye Steelies. Currently they have 175/65/R14 balloon tyres so going for 185/55/r14 will be much better handling and also look better.
I will get down my mates garage again next week and get the tyres onto the steelies.



Here is a couple of pics i took while the xsi was out.

Pic with my Ibiza TDI

I think if you have the seat a notch or 2 forward it will fit nicely but i will look at fitting this week and see how it looks.

Thanks Saamuell, Appreciate it. I do like the rough look of the xsi. Think i will go as far to say i prefer it more than my vts as im not scared to rip bits off and take a grinder to it.

Got an update on the way

Cheers Gavbey. You gone for full system? Can't wait to get it fitted. Think my ears are going to bleed with no interior.

Few little bits turned up this week. Nothing of much interest tbh. Just replacing broken bits

2 brand new standard side repeaters
1 headlamp adjuster + clips
2 Outer door handles



And this week i won 2 tyres on ebay £5, and a 10 minute drive from my house. They are both 185/55/r14 and one will be going on my spare wheel



On wednesday this week i took the spare wheel into work and it has been sandblasted, treated and sprayed in EFA (Europeon Fighter Aircraft) Gearbox paint. I collected wheel today and this it what its looking like:

Before:



Now:




I break up from work on Monday until 4th January 2010 so im hoping i can get alot done on the car.
