Well, got an early start on the Coilovers this afternoon and got the fronts on  :cool: :cool:

Got measuring and the front is now set at 65mm down (I guess they will settle more  :undecided:)

I decided to not paint the springs Cream first though (sorry Chuff  :grin:)

So the front used to look like this..................





And now it looks like this  :smiley:




Once they've settled I'll reset the camber so it doesn't completely sh@g me tyres.


Going to get the rears on in the morning and also put the brand new fuel pump on  :cool:

Then I'll start to enjoy me weekend  :cool:
