Well dunno about you lot but I got a couple of things I want to do but will have to wait until the weather is nicer:

a) I want to blast the entire underside with a wirebrush on a drill and then hammerite certain areas (such as rear axle) and underseal/waxoyl the main floor panels.

b) Wash the car properly and give her a good waxing over.

Any plans anyone?

My brake upgrade should be in the next month or so since I got the MOT end of April. That said, I may get the brakes tested first to see how they'll fair without the upgrade. If all goes well, I'll get the braided hoses done for now and then uprate the brakes later but if she needs new pads/discs I'll be doing the lot. Painting the drums and calipers black in next week or so, so they're done before they go on.

Next couple of months:
fit FMIC, fit fuel pump, fuel regulator, heatwrap and fit new manifold, send the turbo off for some much needed TLC :)

Summer:
Polish up my wheels so the chrome lip looks chrome, tint windows myself (always wanted a bash), spray front indicators black, *thinking* about fitting a role cage(will have to if I enter some track events) fit various bits when my bonus comes in from work!!

By the end of the summer I want at least 180bhp, then next year enter some track days.
