    Love that boost gauge. Good times on the 1/4 too.
    I dare any of you to tell me you wouldn't let this upstanding young citizen slob on your knob like corn on the cob.

    You need to practice soldering Barnes or use crimps.

    Tow bar done was a lot easier than the vectra. Sadly, canbus means I've got no electrics. Bastard newer cars. Need to purchase a box thing to run it at a really cheap price of 140. Lovely. Really happy about that. Really.

    This pvs trip is becoming too expensive and not enough time to do everything.

    Re: corsa booster



    new inlet pipe fitting. its always easy to fit it as its not as flexible as you'd think it should be so it becomes painful to attach it to the turbo.



    on







    trimmed to length. makes the filter sit straight as well instead of an angle like the black one did.



    before



    after. much better imho.



    halfords trip for supplies. they had the tow bar can bus adapter relay device box thing in, so bought one to try it.



    bumper and lights out.



    mask that shit up



    first splat of primer



    same with removable centre bit





    clean the filter in the meantime. hopefully get a bit of paint on it later.

    I've got a can bus bypass relay thing now, hopefully that should cure it.

    got to tackle the spare wheel well tomorrow and see if i can sort the bits under the fuel pump out that have bubbled. probably won't get that done but should get the spare wheel well sorted. oh and paint the tow eye and the bonnet raisers as they're green oddly.

    yeah had to weld a couple of inches to it, and to the radiator on the passenger side hose as i moved the rad as far back as it would go, the hoses wouldn't go back on other wise.

    smart





    headlights back in, intercooler bolted on etc



    thoguht id sand that down as it was looking shite







    gave it a rinse over with some smoke grey, looks better, its not a mint job by any means, but it is better than it was. from a distance.

    adam from vauxhall powered sierras set about wiring up the can bus by pass box thing



    quite simple, works well, no dash lights on, no errors or anything and trailer board lights all work spot on. nice. so thats the bmw ready for its towing job this weekend to pod and back.



    wondered what was in the blue tube in the boot, appears to be a triangle, lovely stuff.



    i edited up a photograph. smart.
