Hopefully get the brake lines replaced with some home-made copper ones before MOT time.

As much as I’d love one, unfortunately not. The prices seem to be on the rise for them. My cars always been the second car in the house, we have a 2016 Fiesta ST that we keep mint. 

 

I just need a car to run around in, throw the dog in, go to the tip with, throw the mountain bike in ect... I’m looking for a EP3 premier. It would kill me to ruin an DC5.

Lots of plans, but how many of them will actually get done with lack of garage or dry working space...

Like you say is luck of the draw, I’ve got a fair few mates with honda’s I’ve always been working on them, being a tech myself it isn’t a problem really. My biggest problem is finding a standard one haha!

I’ve actually got a friends 2002 Ep3 for a week to sort some welding on the floor. Really enjoying it. However I’m not sure if it’s the wheel alignment or the eBay coil overs but the turn in is awful. It turns in and seems to dig in killing all momentum.

You're more likely than some of us to get lots of the white stuff!

Aiming for under 1000kg wet and then maybe try for 300bhp N/A

Managed to tidy up and treat the rear drivers side wheel well. 

Weather is not allowing me sort the passenger side out. Need to remove the arch plastic liner and check on fuel filler condition and treat it if needed.

Also need to get the side skirts off and apply cavity wax.

May just wait till summer to do that.

So many jobs and plans its hard to know where to start, The celica needs the exhaust manifold sorting out and the constantly growing list of jobs to keep the R/rover running never seems to shorten what ever I do to it . I could dream about making a start on the old supra but that will never happen then there's our lads celica daily / track car which seems to take more of my timee than all of my motors put together. Then at some point we will have his skyline return from the bodyshop so we can start to get through the mountain of parts he's been collecting that are taking up way to much shed space but will take first place on the list of jobs to do so I can get in my bloody shed again and crack on with my own jobs :giveup:
