  1. I did, and got the stomski jig which worked a treat. Not quite ready to try for an MOT, but very nearly there.
  2. Bumper and valence now back from repair and paint, so hopefully get it all re-fitted over the weekend and then it’s MOT time 😊
  3. Very nice purchase! I’m just waiting on the bumper coming back and fitted, and then it’s MOT time. Not sure if it’ll stay. Life’s too short, and plenty of cars I’d like to try, so the 3.2 and Lotus Exige may go and be replaced with one.
  4. Wheels and tyres now on. Bumper still away being repaired, but due back soon. It’s also decided not to start, and suspect it’s the DME relay, so one on order.
  5. 10 years is a long time with a car. I could be interested in some of the spares depending on what you have
  6. Went for the Michelin Pilot Exalto PE2s - seemed to be a reasonable price.
  7. Wheel centres now all one colour, and tyres ordered. Went for a set of Michelins. Hopefully should be fitted next week, and then it’s just case of get them and the back bumper on the car, and it’s MOT time.

    It was a bit fiddly, but I managed to get the Heat Exchangers off with the engine still in, and the car up on axle stands. They came off bit by bit mind you with the help of an angle grinder 😁
  9. Front discs and pads changed, and a couple of bits of paint touched up. Rear bumper and valence hopefully back this week, and just to get the tyres sorted. I’m also going to tidied up the wheel centres so they’re all one colour. Aiming for the first Saturday of September for an MOT test.
  10. Front discs, pads, and sensors just arrived.
  11. Thanks @Merv. It’s running well, and looking forward to getting some miles on it. Very nearly MOT time Just a bit! 🤣
  12. Rear bumper and valence being painted next week, and front brakes ordered. Just tyres to go and it should be time to try for an MOT.
  13. Looks really nice in the pictures @Jay Man. Similar dilemma here around emptying my garage and replacing with one car too. Keep coming back to thinking that ultimately I’d regret selling the IB. This is partly though as I’d promised myself it for completing a lengthy period at night school and other elements to put a career change In place. Lots of other cars out there though, and life’s too short.
