  1. So this thing is due to receive some mega love over the summer..

    After going for a small drive to Karori today I applied the brakes (as per usual driving) only to have the car lock up all over the road and scare the shit out of me.. the brakes don't disengage after being used without hooking under the pedal and pulling it up so it really needs a good looking at. Time to pull it off the road for a bit to get it all sussed out, current list goes like this

    - Sort out all breaking, new master, new good quality pads and possibly rebuild the calipers.

    - Replace Cambelt, new tensioners, new/refurbished radiator and give the cooling system a really good going over.

    - 309 GTI front struts and lowering springs (might get some spun up), adjust the torsens to get the COG a bit lower.

    - New wheels possibly my fake 15x8 borbets if I can make them work, mayybeee some widened steelies OR some nice 17"s if I can find decent wide ones that will work for a reasonable price (unlikely)

    After all of these things are done I will look at more performance related stuff. Hopefully it wont take to long to get this stuff sorted out / I want to thrash it around over summer

  2. Love this car so far.. Its so lol, scarred the shit out of my flatmate this evening.

    A few things I wanna sort out asap, get her sussed out as far as belt slippages go and try and tidy up a few things here and there - would like to nip the rear windshield rust in the bud and possibly get the roof repainted.. I would then like to lower it to the point that the geometry isn't completely fucked, but so it looks a bit less ready to rally across africa. I would also like to fit some kind of wheel that would increase its aesthetic appeal and go from there.
