    Rear seat stays in just leant forward slightly John. I like to put a bungee through all four to stop them moving under braking and acceleration

    Update:
    Ordered some Dmack semi slick tyres off NickD. Worth a try at the price. Will report back in the spring once I’ve been on track.

    Just finalised plans for forging my engine in January. Alex White is taking on the project. Very competitively priced and only 35mins away so he’s getting the job. More details will follow nearer the time.

    Thanks for looking as always

    Wish you all a Merry Christmas

    Ideal Ben, the tyres will be just fine and great for the money.

    I’m planning on picking up a spare 225 / R26 engine in the new year for a proper forge build too.

    Tyres arrived promptly courtesy of @NickD Thanks again.

    Insurance sorted for the year. £348 all mods declared with Greenlight. Must be getting old:cry: limited to 5000miles to get it that price.

    Car goes to AWMotorworks Sunday for forging. Updates as and when I get them.

    Get yourself a shed runaround mate:thumb: Fiesta ST maybe?!
    Mines just a weekend/track toy fortunately so 5k easy to keep to.
    You’ll be in the same boat now which must be a big bonus?!

    Yeah big time! Was given a work Van so fuel and everything is paid for which is great. Keeps me from spending loads on fuel and means I can buy parts which is going to be lovely haha! Means track days too
