    Powering through with relapping the valves and putting new stem seals in and it suddenly occurred to me that I forgot to put the spring seats in before the stem seals!! Ffs!!! So looks like im going to have to get some more seals tomorrow and start again!!

    Re: Corsa B Future Track Car

    People don't realise how awkward they look fixing cars. If you are 6ft plus and are bent over the engine bay of a slammed Corsa B for example and your missus gets an "action" shot, it is pretty demoralizing when you realise that even when you aren't mincing you look like you are mincing.

    I like the ones of people under cars when just the legs stick out, it is like the car and owner are trying to be Flawless or Diversity when, in reality, the owner is about to drop an F20 diff cover on his/her face.

    Re: Corsa B Future Track Car

    yeah sort of, but now it gives me a reason to go out and buy some fibreglass arches. glad my girlfriend stopped me because i was going for the windows next, and i briefly decided to sell it and wrote up a for sale ad on mig but then my battery died on my phone, so i took that as a sign. decided to power on with it now and finish what i started
