Welcome!!

Thanks mate!

Today I did my first mod, dogbone bushes. I'm glad I did considering the state of the original, the smaller bush was toast!

Nice new powerflex goodies installed:

Also threw a bucket of water over it for the first time since I've owned it (no pics), definitely needs a good polish but isn't too bad. 

So far enjoying the car!

Replaced these with PowerFlex ones:

Was a massive mission to do this without removing the subframe from the car! It might have helped to drop it down a bit without removing completely but I didn't do that. Still I managed eventually and all is good.

Also put some attention into the rear end with these:

Car handles nicely now! Rear swaybar made a huge difference to the handling, hooks in harder and car stays flatter through the corners. Best mod done so far!

 

Next up I'll be replacing the gearbox oil and spark plugs, also will attempt to figure out where the oil is leaking from.

The gearbox leaks from the selector.

The oil filter holds about 100 ml of oil and this usually tips onto the engine as it's removed. (Putting rags under and around the filter helps catch some oil.)
