It's nice here and James and I had little trouble coming in on the flooded roads, but be careful in the RX-8's as it's deep in parts :!:

James is working on his Renault Laguna while we are waiting for everyone to arrive :thumleft:

Also be careful coming up the dirt track driveway with lowered cars :!: :!:

Yes it's done about 500 miles :/

Taken the wheel off and pulled it out and it's a tiny hole which from my measurements is inside the repairable area but we'll see what the garage says on Monday!

Few pics of the day,

Just like to thank Rob for his hospitality and equipment available was just the job to sort my car out. Thanks (forgot names already lol) for the exhaust bolts to fix my bodged decat and for some extra mt90 to save me opening my third bottle.

Heaven's knows how my gearbox had no grinding issues with the state of the oil. Anyhoo it's all nice and fresh as well as the diff oil and the correct springs and bolts for the decat.

Only fatality was my scorpion exhaust tip which half snapped off on the journey there. Must also say it was great to see so many people traveling from close and afar to this today through the less than favourable weather. I'm sure Nigel might need a snorkel next time as it was very moist ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
