All the poly bushes are now done just need to bleed the brakes and then its road test time.

Brakes bled just needs a good road test around some nice country roads. Also fitted my retro musical car horn just for a bit of fun.

Well the new gaz coilovers and the poly bush kit really have transformed the handling on my car I gave it a good shake down last night around the a roads of Derbyshire and what a blast it was goes round bends like its on rails although I did nearly lose the back end a couple of times but I put that down to giving it a bit too much throttle and having 195s on the rear instead of 205s so tyres are next on the to do list along with a better brake setup. :D
