    Lost my job after a month, and only 2 days in the field, as I'm 'not a good fit'. I know there's more to it, I've done fuck all wrong and just been shit on so they could give an excuse to fire me.

    Better get the Civic running, then.

    MR2 wheels fitted have finalised the look for now, staggered 6/6.5j with 195/50/15 Rainsports all round. I might space out the rear 10mm when I'm not broke.

    It still needs a passenger driveshaft, but it's now had:

    rear beam polybushes (before I got it)
    rear ARB
    front strut brace
    new dampers/Eibach lowering springs
    all brakes replaced
    MR2 wheels and tyres
    stainless exhaust
    K&N washable panel filter
    a fancy delrin gearknob
    OEM under seat subwoofer.

    At some point, the only thing left to really do is add upgraded front wishbones, and maybe 10mm spacers on the rear wheels, but otherwise it's ready to just drive and drive. I want to see it to 200k - I started at 106420 in December and I'm up to 113k.

    Ghosty reacted to HMC in HMC- 1979 escort 1.3GL is here!   
    Growing up there was one of these down my street. a 1.3 GL 4 door. Aged 10 you could keep your ferraris etc, what i really wanted was one of these. I absolutely loved them.
    Back then they were cheap first cars (around 1990) couple of hundred quid and scrap it when the mot was up. That is assuming it hadnt dissolved already, or been crashed.
    Then a strange thing happened. They vanished overnight and then slowly they started getting expensive. By the time i started driving they were not mega expensive, but just hard to find.
    My route to a mk2 escort was avoid 2 door (££££££) avoid uk RHD (££££££ plus most heavily welded or rotten)
    So here we have a solid LHD import 1.3GL which is being delivered next week…

    We replaced the simulator with a visit to the Imperial War Museum which is near Old Trafford.  That was really interesting, and free except for the parking.
    Also, later met up with a handful of current and ex Shiters, including @Ghosty and @Junkman so a rather jolly evening ensued.

    Added a rear ARB to the Yaris. It's made a huge difference, the car feels loads more confident and planted - new springs and dampers probably help too. Close to pretty much fully overhauling it!
