Default stevie_m progress... Or lack of it.

Tonight I bought a X reg VTR Two Tone 98bhp

78,200 miles showing

The inside of the car looks clean and tidy but needs a new gaiter and gear knob (current is wobbily... already got replacements)

Noticed that the radiator is goosed ... luckily got it home without any warning lights or overheating showing on the dash.
Was also lucky that is was freezing tonight so hopefully no damage has been done to the head... damage was done ... but fixed now.

But that didn't stop the wife giving me I told you so face

The exterior of the car is looking quiet good apart from a small piece of bubbling on the passenger door about an inch or so square

Pictures are here post #27

No need for hinting .. I want rid of them. I looking to change for VTS alloys

--------------------

The goosed radiator is now fixed now onto my next problem which I feel will be the brakes (Calipers, Discs & Pads)... I think these brakes will do for a few weeks

Gaitor & Gear Knob need to be replaced
Drop Link driver side
Problems with the driver side door card

Way ahead of you guys that's the plan.

Still for some strange reason it is overheating not majorly but enough to make me think the thermostat might be gooses also. Haven't had it touch the top marker for the heating but had to stop a few times to let it cool down for a minute.

Gonna phone my local garage and get him to flush the system and giv the thermostat a once over. Just to be on the safe side. Rather pay £50 for a service & flush out rather than for a new VTR engine.

same here always felt they looked that little bit different.

Really need to sort out the rust / bubbling on the passenger door. Once that's done I can give it a good detailing and make it shine.

gonna be lowered about 35 > 40 mm. Anthracite VTS wheels, 106gti leathers, retrim the cards in alcantara. Anthracite strut brace.

Also depending on how bad the damage is the engine might come out and a new on put in. Also thinking about VTS dials for a oil pressure gauge.

sorry about the lack of pictures at the moment guys, can't take it anywhere for a photoshoot.
