tried thumping the undertray to see if it drops out?

BTW if I'm doing anything under the bonnet I put a cloth or towel in to catch things like these little bleeders

I gassed the AC 24hrs later all gone ! I suspect a leak as it was working now has all gone

I'm gonna book it with a specialist and get it sorted hoping it won't cost a bomb I kno the compressor and relay work at the very least

Maybe a good idea to replace to the condenser given its age

Surprised it wasn't a 100 quid lol
Still cheaper than an AC valve cover !

So two Styling options ;

Option 1...

Megen spoiler, Mugen valance with exhaust bezels

318751


Option 2....

Seeker spoiler & GP rear

318752


Which looks better ?

Yes I like the mugen, just the splitter, I just don’t know, mugen spoiler gp splitter. Which ties in more naturally with the car. If you go full mugen then you have to do the front also to pull it all together

Lol bro I'm waiting to get the charger as it's gone in for inspection and overhaul even though it was rebuilt in Jan there are some metal shavings in the oil so could need a bearing I actually drove the charger to Sheffield and back in a day!

The main rebuild place for Eaton chargers is Sheffield so I took it there on recommendation

The styling has peaked my interest however I'm booked in to get that AC sorted so lots of outlay all over the show

I think I gotta go
AC
Charger
Mugen rear valance

Since my triangles are knackered it's a perfect excuse to swap out the rear for round bezels I never liked triangles anyway

I like that but it will last 5minutes round here with the speed humps which are like canyons

What's the latest with your spring situation

Don’t get me started on suspension, still hasn’t sorted its self. Made sure all top mounts correct due to arrows incorrect orientation. Possibly damage the mounts don’t know. Then was meant to swap rear springs around to check if one was weak. Noob here put them together just to check they identical and forgot which side was which🙄I’m at a dead end at mo, so was going to get a set of 30’s or coilovers. Do we know if the top mounts have a slight taper on the fn2.
As for the rages, ride will be harsher but you get used to it. I don’t really notice it now, apart from the other half who I here “oh,ah, bloody bumps” 😆
