    Just got my car ready for billing by a nats knacker

    Just Finshed fitting the coilovers and brakes to my car and numerous other repairs needed before I can safley drive it.
    Had issues with the front bearings for the suspension,as me and luke thought they were missing from the kit, turns out you use the standard bearings from your exsiting top hat.
    Just some tidying up for sat.
    First show in years I will be bringing a presentable motor. Just need to figure out how to get the car off the drive as the front is on the deck.
