Picked up this lush carbon fibre seat today from Jon on here, finally a seat that fits both me and the car. Another 7kg saved too. I mounted it on the standard runners, seems plenty low enough. 30 minute job, nice. Very well made, a quality item.
Now that I'm getting on better with my wife I decided to upgrade my Project M 'Bachelor Bar' to the double 'Stable Relationship' version. What I like about this bar is the fact that you can't hit your head on it. I did some repairs on the hood and rain rail whilst I was in there.
I've been tempted by these so many times in either 14x7 +19 or 15x8 +28, a lot of people run them so saving up for something a bit harder to get hold of but theres a good reason people run them... they are amazing, light, strong wheels with a classic look and reasonably affordable new. 3.8kg is amazing, the oem bbs I have are 4.9 without valves

Sadly, after five blissful years, I currently have no garage/workshop space. My buddy Simon and I have had to sell our shared building, (an old shoe factory) due to covid killing the music events business, and we've had to strip the place out, the lift and all the rest of the equipment, and move everything down to Simon's place in the Quantocks, to be stored in a barn until he can build a new workshop. It was great while it lasted, we restored 3 Bucklers in that time, and I've modified and maintained my MX5 and three Subarus, plus prepping and looking after a Mk2.5 Sport for a track instructor. I'm now back to crawling around on the drive until I can find another house with some decent sheddage. Not ideal at my age but hohum. Here's what it was like, I'll really miss the lift:
Meanwhile, I'm overhauling the brakes on the green car with new discs and Rodders pads from Bofi. New pins etc arriving tomorrow hopefully, fluid flush while I'm at it. I briefly thought about Freaky Parts Willwood Dynalite set up, but I don't have big power (c.155hp) and I've never had an issue with decent pads and fluid on the standard setup. They wouldn't fit under my wheels without big spacers anyway.
I’ve done a few things to the car recently, along with driving it a lot more now it lives on my drive. The bucket seat I fitted last year is super comfortable and supportive when actually sat in it, but getting in and out is a very painful experience due to my mangled back. So I’ve taken it out and I’ll refit it for any track use. Meanwhile I found a pair of retrimmed standard seats in oldskool black vinyl, with green piping. Much easier, and quite comfortable, if a bit slippy.
I also got round to fitting the new front wings I got and had painted 6 months ago. The old ones were rattle canned by me 4 years ago, and have finally had it. Looks very smart now. I’ve also removed the vented headlamp covers for repainting properly. It needs a machine polish all over really
I've been busy solving a crank-no-start situation that appeared last Saturday. At first, I suspected the immobiliser, as it's 27 years old, so went about tracing wires to find where it's hidden. My car is a UK one, so it's an importer-fit Sterling touch. Found it hidden behind the heater blower, it's spliced into the loom just before the ecu. It turned out not to be the problem, but now I know where it is, I'll remove it when I can find an ambidextrous leprechaun to do it for me. Investigation of the no-start situation revealed I had fuel, but no spark. First off, I replaced the coil pack with a new one, since it was the original 27 year old one. No difference, but fortunately I had a spare CAS lying around. I fitted it and the car started first time. Much relief, as I wasn't looking forward to investigating the MS2 ecu and associated wiring. When I've fitted a CAS with the engine in situ before, it's been a pain to get the keys lined up with the slots in the end of the camshaft. This time, it went in easily, which I took to be a good omen. Now that I have a non-functioning CAS, I'm tempted too take it apart and see how it works, and why they can fail.

freddyboy: How do you remove the radio from a RHD 2006 Mk3 please ? - removed the glovebox + 2 screws, but can't see the 10mm bolt, pulled on the unit, no success- all the videos are on LHD cars - is there a 10mm bolt to remove on the LHS of the radio
