    Made it to Waitrose and nothing fell off. Success.

    Finally finished the coilovers, I’m going to give it a couple of weeks to settle but the rear is going to have to be raised a bit as the front is as low as it goes so currently looks like it’s dipping it’s arse. The sump is also stupidly low.. I can fit my fist under it that’s it.. apparently you can get engine raisers for these though. 
     
    also fitted the new AS sticker but it’s made me realise the other one is wonky.

    Yeah, full garage, doing MoTs as well now. They have a body shop as well. He would pass the headlights as well.

    What about SOS in Falkirk? I got an MoT on my Civic there today. They welded both my MX5s. First one nicely and all painted. Second MoT standard. He does older cars and has a rolling road for tuning.

    Not much been happening. Work has been sucking the life-force out of me for the last few weeks so it's been hard to get motivated to roll up my sleeves and tinker. 

    Enjoying the Toledo when I can. It's getting under my skin...keeper territory approaching.

    Mx5 is going for it's mot next week. It's done less than 1000 miles since it's last MOT(July 19) so hopefully won't need much doing.

    Lexus is doing my nut. Exhaust is blowing (sounds amazing though), ABS/VSC light is on and some further prodding of the sills reveals a lack of integrity on the OSR.  Worst of all the boss can't stand it. She hates how it rides and refuses to go in it as it makes her feel sick (prefers the Toledo for our weekly shopping trip) so brave pills taken, new spring compressors used to put new springs on the front shocks.

    Scrap:

    Will fix the sill and I'll see about the exhaust and ABS lights. Let battle commence.

    There were some clever cuts of Paddy in the car starting to apply a tiny bit of opposite lock then cutting to an external shot of a full on power slide. 
    It was the same with the old presenters and can still spot it on the Grand Tour. Low angles so you can’t see the driver. There was an old Top Gear test with a grey M3. There was a great power slide shot but the windows had obviously been tinted in post production editing to hide that it wasn’t Clarkson. 
    Shows how cinematic they want it, getting stunt drivers in to make the star look good.

    @cozmcraejust watched the video. Really enjoyed it. The production was excellent and engaging. 
    I’m desperate to go to Driftland, Crail or Knockhill to watch something.

    The purists will hate me but I went for coilovers and I don’t regret it. Probably the easiest suspension change I’ve ever done too which is great for when I eventually put it back to standard again! 

    Did find quite a horrible rust hole in the inner drivers side rear arch which will need cutting and plating but does look easily accessible. 
     
    I cocked the front up slightly so need to take it back off to switch the adjuster round, should then bring the front down ever so slightly more.. I may raise the rear slightly but it’s nowhere near rubbing and I hate to say it but I do like the scene-kid-stancey-boi look it has now.

    FN2 Civic Type R I bought last January from @Jamie on here. 
    I put new front brakes, shocks and tyres on it last year. MoT next week. Should be fairly sorted and confident in it. Not the most exciting but pretty idiot proof.

    It is just a Knockhill organised session. 
    It is a beginners session which is perfect for me. 
    I had a look on Track Scotland recently but they haven’t got any new dates up.

    Sounds ideal, quick and agile but not going to get you into too much trouble.  Don’t worry about setting lap records and just enjoy yourself. 
    And start saving the pennies for the next one - it is very addictive

    I booked Knockhill for the 28th of April based on the announcement of restriction changes earlier. It is a beginners session. Despite having been to Knockhill loads I’ve never actually been on track, even for an experience. I’m really looking forward to it.

    News latest:
    ‘Travel restrictions will be eased slightly for children taking part in sport where their club may be "a bit outside" their council area’
    Hopefully by the end of April:
    ‘Travel restrictions will be eased slightly for Cheezey taking part in kicking the arse out of his Civic where the circuit may be "a bit" the other side of the River Forth’

    So we went to see it this morning. 
     





    They let me get it up on the ramps to have a prod.  Seemed solid to my untrained, not much mini knowledge eyes. 
     
    In 2017 someone spent a fortune having it restored at a mini place. Masses of other paperwork for bits at the same time. 25k on the odo, nothing before 2016/17 to back the mileage up. 
     
    It ran ace, everything worked etc. Well, you know the lights and heater, not much more in there. 
     
    I think it’s boggo standard apart from a bigger rad, and a stage 1 kit for the 998cc engine? God knows what that consists off??? maybe also an exhaust? 
     


    It’s on a nice new set of Yokohama’s, and all the suspension is new. Subframe has been blasted and power coated.  
     
    There was a funny dyno print out for 41 bhp. So might take it Vmax next year. 
    Its a lot of money. 
    But Mrs T was laughing as we was driving along in it. 
    So left a deposit.
