You should never place your reg number on social media there are people out there who will use it for criminal activity.

So what does that matter?

Presumably you'll be able to prove where you were when said criminal activity took place so no problem. Plus, how many hundreds of people see your reg plate every day as you drive around - any one of those could make a note of it and use it if they were so inclined.

So a few pics of the engine bay to get a before and after, while I thought about what I really wanted to.

Had a few pics that kept giving me inspiration, always loved the the rat rod look as long as it was age related, and the look of that engine bay in The first Transformers movie, that point where they lift the bonnet on the seemingly rough Camaro and there’s this amazingly detailed and clean engine bay.

So I went about killing too birds with one stone, changing the look while also refreshing old rubber and curing small oil leaks, so after a bit of searching online and a few contacts I found and got these, Powdercoated and fitted with AN10 fittings ready for future proofing the build, I’ve pretty much at this point decided what I want to do engine wise and power wise too. And because things are gett8ng done more now I took advantage of the Halfords sale too.

So it was time to upgrade the pads as the brake warning light had come up on the dash which also meant a new sensor which I found on eBay for £10 genuine parts can’t complain. And also some bonnet struts because my head was getting fed up of loading the 20 tone thing up while I worked on the car. And some parts numbers for you guys in case you need to get parts.

I also needed to change the front seat belts as they had long gone, and couldn’t hold much of anything anymore, I tried washing the belts and re greasing but didn’t do too much and was a disgusting colour that came from them so yeh sweaty lovely ness. Oooo and the drivers side belt clip bolt looked like this when I came to it, let’s just say it was a fun job to get off with a few choice words chucked in to help with the job.

So finally received my Magnecore leads and ordered An fittings and hose and also the blanking plate For the valve delete, and also because the wire coatings for the wire harness have turned to brittle dust I thought not a bad idea to address that too.

I'm not here to rain on the party but,

those rear discs look heavily scored, they should have been replaced aswell as the pads.

Also, shouldn't this be in the build thread section?
