  1. awesome cheers LR5V looks like this is the puppy N0145931 if im not mistaken
  2. Hi All, Im after an AFH head, ill take a whole engine but would need to be able to be shipped to Jersey. Let me know thanks
  3. These are the ball joints: 93-90973-156 & 93-90973-256, I ordered through autodoc.
  4. Not much up an update as i keep forgetting to take photos, but. The car is back from the body shop and all back together Got the aftermarket ball joists all fitted and seem like the right fit! ive made up a fibreglass bootlid with integrated boot hinge mounts which needs a lick of paint and will be able to be thrown on the car. I managed to get a Dbilas Dynamic intake manifold, which ive gold tape wrapped and fitted with a thermo spacer intake gasket to try and keep the intake temperatures down (the exhaust up to the 2nd cat has also had exhaust wrap on it). Ive had to re-route my induction kit also. The project silver top mounts id fitted developed a knock after the crash so i have reverted to standard for now. Polycarb windows are in also to replace the smashed ones. The tailgate window and right rear quarter window will need to be done after the next rally. Both seat mounts have had to be replaced as these got pretty bent up in the crash also. Next event is the Bovington stages at the end of the month so will update again after that.
  5. Ive had this recently, i reckon the small cable has become detached from the handle. There is a little grommet in the side of the door, take this off and there should be a torx head screw which holds in the lock, if you loosen this you should be able to pull the lock out and there you should be able to see that the cable isnt connected to the handle. Hopefully you can just pop it back in.
  6. whats up with the box?
  7. i havnt replaced these before, just been on and off a fair few times now. I guess the previous owner could have had longer ones, will keep this updated
  8. Thanks all for the replies. That last pic is exactly what i was after thanks alot! It appears that my bolts stick through the flange alot more than yours hence the rubbing. i think the driveshaft bolts must have stretched through use. ive got a set on order which will hopefully not stick out as far, ill check the lengths against the ones in there at the moment and let you guys know. For now there is no rubbing, and that photo shows the same distance between the flange and gearbox so pretty happy that the gearbox is okay
  9. An odd one but does anyone have any pictures or could take some of the space between the passenger side drift shaft flange and the gearbox. After an off in a rally the bolts on one side of the box started rubbing on the casing, spacers were added behind the bolts to provide clearance until the end of the event. A new flange has now gone in and the is still only 2mm max. between the end of the bolts and the casing. The gearbox otherwise operates fine and am in two minds whether to pull the box apart and have a look, with an event at the end of next month itd be nice to put this issue to bed. Cheers in advance
  10. Their the puppies i got to, hopefully they work!
  11. Are the ones on all the threads on here not right?
  12. I used 2 layers of 450csm with a core material (lightweight spacer) inbetween to increase stiffness without adding weight, im going to make the next one out of lighter matt and see how it goes, doesnt need be strong, only enough to hold itself up, i was amazed by how aluminium one tore so badly. The flared arches crossed my mind the minute i pulled the arch out of the mould As for ball joists i think i managed to source the aftermarket gti ones, i will compare when i go to do it.
  13. Hi, does it only pressurise when its hot? have you tried running it with the cap off from cold, if there are bubbles coming out constantly this would suggest a headgasket issue. Does the temperature gauge show it over heating? Does the fan come on? Im no fox expert but would just be a few things to check
  14. Cheers, am yet to fit it but looks like it should be sweet, it’s only using the top mounting points, so will find a way of securing to the bumper and will, it’ll do for a rally car at least
  15. As you can see from on of the pictures above i ruin a lovely Aluminium wing So i thought now i dont have a spare wing, why not try and make one. So i went a made a mould of the 1 good wing remaining and then made a fibreglass copy, which didnt turn out too bad. I even managed to save a little bit of weight on the stock item. Ill be making another one and try to match the gel coat colour to the tornado red abit better to save me in paint costs. Ill probably do the same for the passenger side, then maybe even try making a boot lid.
