    Post My daily 2.8 thread

    Had this for just over 2 years ,
    The day I picked it up was very happy no dents or rust picked up for 750

    Abs light was on, and various other little things needed doing
    Replaced the drivers side hub and new sensor,
    New top mounts and poly anti rol bushes, also fitted new drop links, water pump (metal impeller)
    New inlet pipe cos mine had a split,and then left it for about a month

    Then changed the bumper, new numberplate,angel eyes, changed the wheels,then booked it in for a rear end re spray, bonnet and passenger door repaint
    She came back looking like is

    I then fitted carbon fibre mirrors,m3 door mouldings,new front gass shocks, and new standard brake lines,


    Oh also fitted black grills at one point, new steering rack also .and arm rest
    My two m50 one converted to bolt straight on one standard


    The boys

    My car situation my naibours love me

    One last one of the 2.8 on gay wheels till I finish the refurb on the 17s

    Thanks for looking !

    328 looks nice mate

    I like that colour on the convertable as well

    Your neighbour does seem a bit fed up right enough with the for sale sign up

    Good luck with the project

    Somebody gave you 950 for a yellow Ford Ka! haha nice one, great project mate, whats the plan for the Vert then?


    Despite the high cost of living, It remains popular!

    Never bullshit a bullshitter, they'll just bring you down to their level and trash you with experience!

    A mate of mine recently admitted that he was a brake fluid addict! When I quizzed him about it he insisted that he could stop any time.
