    That should make light work of it, I always hear them before starting removal.

    Thanks Tim, tbf it pulled the first one perfectly, which was in good condition for it's age, but the second was a different story, but a touch of heat and easy peasy. So no differences in 850/v70 rear setups, so a straight swap is no issue ??

    They are the same, A later P1 V70 will have two brake pipes to the rear or a C70 is a bit fatter.

    Thanks for the info, the spare subframe will be stripped and painted etc, before being rebuilt the same as the T-5R's are at present, then I'll have a swap over day, when the front brake calipers can be changed to and the braking system filled with nice new fluid and goodrich braided hoses all round..

    Well after 10 months (possibly +) lay up, it was time to get Gul cleaned up ready for MOT prep. I'm not that I see any real issue so far. Well what is she worth insurance wise these days, I think all my cars are 1000's under value at present going my market values, I would be interested in your thoughts on this....fire away...

    Dirty beasts awaiting cleaning, after pics are waiting till the sun comes back out, but they'll probably need cleaning again by then...

    Oh and one other thing that has happened since awakening the Gul, is that the info bar in the dash clocks has disappeared, anyone had this issue before and what was the cure (other than swapping the clocks...obviously) ??? The ice warning light is still working though. Ta.

    Well it has been a while....

    Gul is soldiering on well and receiving parts as and when she needs them, so far she as had the rear brakes fully rebuilt, including new handbrake cables, new disc's and linings all round. I lost the clutch on the way to work one day and had to be recovered by the RAC. I suspected the slave cylinder so stripped it out and replaced it and then decided to refresh the brake and clutch fluids whilst i was about it, so all old fluid was blown out and new added and bled through the braking system until flowwing clean (some fair amount of muck came out tbh), the clutch was a total nightmare to bleed and when I finally got some pressure, it blew the hard pipe to bits, just under the air box, so and new pipe was ordered of Sweden and duly turned up a few days later. Pipe is now fitted and bled finally, pedal is a tad low imho, but after the hassle I had bleeding it, I'm not messing with it again, in case I loose it again. Also I have changed both front lower arms and sorted out an oil leak from the filler cap and in the process cured a misfire that had been alluding me for quite some time. New plugs fitted (champion this time as they were on the shelf, so we'll see how they do over time against OEM'S) and leads changed, seems a bit laggy low down now, but as soon as she comes on boost, it's solid all the way up through the rev range. Next will have to be front wings and paint, as they are shot to be fair, but that will have to be a winter project in the dry.

    Just resurrecting this thread as we're talking about my old Gul elsewhere.
    I was quoted 2.5k for the full respray, and this was by a bodyshop that I use every year for one car or another, and their prices have always been decent for the other jobs.
    I think that the colour worried them for whatever reason.

    Resurrected.....cheeky lol, the thread gets a bit added as and when, I'm less active on that since photobucket and flickr held it's users to ransom over photo hosting, so I need to find another way to get photos on here easily and then hopefully the service will return to normal. As for your comment about the body shop and their concern about the paint colour, I wonder if they are more concerned about spraying over the old water based paint that was originally applied at the factory, I'm going to have to do some serious research before even attempting this or stump up the cash and have it done for me, though will be stripping off as much as possible before the respray as there are certain areas that really want some serious attention, such as the engine bay, roof, and the rear 1/4, just for starters.

    On a different note I have just picked up and few goodies to go onto Gul in the next few months, they consist of a Forge Re-Circ Valve to replace the blanking valve on the turbo, a smart RaceTech boost gauge and a Forge Mbc (oh yes time for the Frankie Valve). I am also planning to make her a 3" angle flange downpipe, which will mate to an angle flange hotside I have kicking about, which will be fitting to the 15g, which will in turn will be mounted onto a modified Japanifold that is left over from olives last round of modifications, the downpipe will then exit into olives old Jetex/Bsr cat back system. I am considering adding a set of blues too, just to compensate as the flow should be much improved and the current map will easily handle it all, as all the mods have been tried and tested on olive with no issues, so it seems a waste to leave the cast off bits on the shelf, when I could free up some more horses and make her even better than she is now.
