  1. use this for fitting rings https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/11642-vs1642-piston-ring-installation-pli/ not https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/cht260-piston-ring-pliers/
  2. If you can live with the shit fuel consumption you can't do better than a Subaru forester xt. Take an impreza chassis with its single turbo flat 4 engine and awd. Put it onto a body that is big enough to fit a fridge freezer in. Handles in all conditions like it's on rails, ground clearance of a 4x4. Yes the std brakes need upgrading but the impreza is one of the most modified and tuned there is. Avoid diesels
  3. should i start looking for another snotter so you can have paddy back, i know i am just the custodian
  4. paddy is still purring away like a fucked off lion, gawd i love that car around town, still drives like a go kart and terrorizes the weans, okay you need ear plugs on long runs... the steering does wander towards large puddles if there is chavs nearby (neds in scotland), found a stuffed lion in the wife's caravan, it lives on the parcel shelf.... wrc wrap planned for spring
  5. they are stopping making cars, ordinary cars only building stupid electrric or hybrid things, the fezza did a job, okay it grew over the years, it just shows the modern industry orr what it is, vehicles that dont know what they are. its put them out of rallying and touring cars too

  8. proton managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, arrived in 88 with the saga which was a mitsi parts bin, had a good dealer network by tagging onto lada dealers, sold well to the lada buyers then lost the plot, the persona was worse, tried 2 attempts at btcc with the impian in 03/04 and through welch motorsport usin a shell to build to ngtc regs. dealer network collapsed. are they still in the uk... had they stayed at the budgget end they would have done alright like dacia bbut they tried to compete with the bbig boys with a shite product
