    My car is back on the road :)

    After 2 months of no insurance or tax my mam has bought me both for my birthday so the car is back.

    Its feeling a bit sorry for its self, the EML is on, its got a cracking misfire every time its hits 3k rpm which throws out huge flames and the brakes are all binding but apart from that its all good lol. Ive aquired some rear disks to get rid of the poverty spec drums on the back and geordie bandit sorted me out a 308mm front setup for a very reasonable price, they just need re-drilled to 4 stud to fit them which will solve the braking issues and hopefully the engine will cure itself when it gets some miles on it.

    Then once my next student loan comes thru its getting the turbo lump dropped in . I am a happy person today
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it
