Correct.I had 12mm on the rears and the stance was perfect but couldnt handle the rubbing of the sidewalls.

BTW can images be resized in Imgur when using IPAD???

My back end isn't low so might give 12mm a go as well.

Don't get me started on imgur lol. Spent ages last night sorting an account and uploading my images to find that they're absolutely huge and doesn't seem to be a way of resizing them.

Had a new radiator fitted, old one 'bowed' and pushed oil cooler out. Plus new aircon fan & system re-gassed, oil change and a check up.

I had this problem with dropbox and Google said - right click , send to - mail recipient and you are then offered a resizing for the email . You dont have to send it , just save and attach . A pain but is a way around it if you have all your images too large .

Thanks for the reply. I finally got them working through Flickr but took about a week to work out it's kind of easy to do now so I'll stick with them for a bit

In the last week... Pulled the GTR engine out (actually, Drewbie did that part!), put it up for sale, then had a change of heart and decided to fix it! All stripped down last night, and everything is like new aside from needing a new set of pistons.

As for the Evo saloon... fitted a new fuel sender (passenger side). Slowly but surely getting this lovely old thing up to scratch...

Fresh MOT today (no advisories!) along with having the steering rack re-conditioned, new inner & outer tie rod ends and steering alignment.

Front end feels nice & tight!

Changed the nsf outer balljoint on my evo. Not a fun job without a press but I've got the hang of doing them now. Doesn't seem long since I did the full set, but it was actually 4 years ~ 70,000 miles ago so can't complain too much, especially as most of those are bumpy b-road miles.

E46 320i front brake calliper piston is the perfect size for sitting on the flange to knock the new one in

E36 non M3 -

Trimmed the door shut off a Saloon arch to see if it will do for a coupe as less than half the price



Looks reasonable

E36 m3 - washed it.

E36 non-m3, moved it and washed it after not being used for 18months and having been parked on grass for the last 6 months. Changed the outer ns balljoint as it was an advisory on the last mot, and have had a general poke about underneath. The patches I did around the jacking points a couple of years ago are still holding up nicely so hoping it won't need anything else for a ticket.

Needs must, too many cars, not enough space. Turned part of the front garden into a proper gravel space so could move one back off the grass. Was only going to be short term, didn't plan for it to be 6 months

Some suspension bits are a bit flakey and cobwebby, but brake pipes and body seem to have held up much better than expected.
