So this afternoon after much argueing with my dad about where im going to pull my car apart, the front lawn (not the best but i cant wait) it is.
I am swaping the S1 205 Beam with the 309 GTi one and its proving frustrating. After having to remove the whole exhaust because the whole thing is one long piece, all welded and no joiners, i had to remove it from the manifold necause i snapped one of the joiner bolts from the manifold to the downpipe. So after tearing about half the skin off my hands in the process its finally off. Then i realise i have to take the drum nut off to get the handbrake cable off so i can unbolt the beam from the car. BUT as useual i dont have a big enough socket to do so. So off to the shops tomorrow. Its bascially ready to come off so im pretty excited.
Also i have to grind or sand down the inner lip of the rear plastic arch as the beam is to wide otherwise it will rub. Any suggestions as to how i should go about this. I was thinking being careful with an angle grinder and then finishing it off with sand paper or something.
Anyway, just thought ide vent.
(ps, ring spanner ratchet things are the best tool in the world)
