yes its still at the unit for now :)

I took it up the road with no exhaust lol XD and was just crawling along then when i booted it.... let the tire smoking begin :) ohh yeh with flames shoot out of the downpipe!!

I must be the luckyest fucker alive tho....:o got to the end of the road, turned round and the battery died because the alternator was disconected :x

"scatchy" followed me in my company car with no licence or insurance and i was in Jet with NO Tax&Test or insurance oh and no bonnet... :roll: and when we got out to have a look guess what rolled up next to us...THE FILTH! This is in the middle of nowhere..BTW.

so he pulled up and had a chat about the car and why we where out so late and he was on his way :shock:

swiftly put the car back and fucked off home :)

I will be at V3M this year if all goes well! sm4

cheers guys when James pops up next week we will get some vids and put'm up for you guys.


Cheers

Adam.

To be fair, if it ain't rusty...
The areas that are grotty will get some proper attention while we're welding ready for the MOT.

And finally, Adam's worldwide film debut, in a short piece I'd like to call "Failed Drift (Needz Moar LSD)"...

Im not surprised!

It had a fair bit of Ronnywelding done when I had it. Was solid as far as I could see when I sold it on.

Cool vid lads.
Well done all concerned.

It needs quite a bit more now, but we are...2...years down the line? I was more meaning I wouldn't worry too much about stripping the floorpan; just the areas which are likely to give trouble. Renewing the lot is nice, but a luxury, IMO.
