looking at the pics of your rear beam, you may want to consider replacing the anti rollbar clamps/bushes as they are looking tired mate  :wink:

 :grin:  Thanks for the kind words.. (PS no comments are supposed to be left in this section, hence why projects are duplicated in the dub rides section)

 Time to say goodbye to the vintage Supersprint, and have a go with a Sportex Race System (deleted centre box)

So what have I been up to? Well if this was a home DIY forum we could be here for some time, thankfully it's not so we'll just get to the car stuff......ish.

Hired a car transporter for the house move as it was the easiest way to move all the cars.





New house (over 100 years old) needs everything, the rear is blessed with over a quarter of an acre with a garage in the middle of it.  It's not been used as one for a very long time, needs work but is structurally sound and dry as a bone.

Only one functioning door which was just wide enough to get the golf in after I had a tree taken down and dug a path to the entrance.





Got the golf in not long after moving in but the Mustang and the Van had to wait as neither would fit through the door.



Last week I finally got a very good deal on a suitable door. I think the pictures explain the rest.

Looks good in the garage!
Huge amount of work out there... I'm impressed, man!
The best car safety device is a rear-view mirror with a cop in it.
