Bodged you say? Ah.

Na tbh stuff just goes wrong with an old car that gets abused. I don't have a trailer, so if it breaks on a track day I'm screwed.

We shall see.

Hey, if you want to offer me a free warranty on it, be my guest Thumbs up

Reliable or not, still don't have the time to drive it.

Wassat? You want to buy every part of my car? Interesting Hmm

When can you pick it up? I'm fine with being hated.

Na, the next step is just buying the diesel because it's more practical. No selling on the Pug involved.

Maybe.

Unless I give up and sell it, of course.

It all depends on work and whether or not it passes its MOT in a few months' time. If it goes through fine, I'll probably get it on a lay-up policy and leave it until I have more time and money to track it.

If it doesn't pass, I'll either SORN it or break it I guess, depending on what it fails on.

Drive it where?! It has no heating, I take it around for a quick blast every now and again but my insurance policy is so restrictive I'm really only allowed to take it to trackdays, which cost money.

In saying that, we've just booked up a £99 day at Woodbridge on the 16th Feb to remember what it's like having joy in my life, so we'll see if it holds together Yes

Also had a bit of luck for once with a tyre - took all the wheels off to tighten everything up and noticed a 10mm nail stuck in one of the tyres. They've got loads of tread left, and are £65 + fitting a corner, really not what I wanted.

Took it down to the local tyre place who took a look, checked for leaks, and it looks like I got away with it and the nail didn't make it through the inner layer. WIN.

Oil change, new plugs, full brake check, fluids, tighten everything up, job's a goodun.

Yeah, I gave up trying to keep that on, it kept falling off every time I shut the door, was like being in a bad 70s comedy.
