Update.
Now photobucket is up again for free I can add to this thread.

Car now has the Turbo Technics Hybrid, Dekka 630's, Walbro 255 but the wastegate appears to have jammed.
Swapping with another unused one from the group buy (thanks Niven) and then TT will repair the defective one.

All welding work and back end respray completed, air con regassed, new tyres, new rear pads and discs.

Sachs performance clutch ready for fitting should the current one be too weak. Strangely I can't get it to slip, unlike Wheelynutz who drove the car :argh:

Ready for a jolly to Europe next week.

The Aero made it easily to Switzerland. Cruise control most of the way though to avoid any French driving fines.
Missed out Germany on the way down :wall:

Bit late but here is a dam picture

BTW the dam is taller than the Eiffel Tower and heavier than the great pyramid of Cheops.

Phew, for a moment there I thought you weren't using SI units. All converted in my head now.

Not sure I'd call the 9000 a "skip", not before you've got safely home. :D

That looks fabulous. It's a miserable, windy, grey, 'issing down day in Billinge and I am soooo jealous.

Must say I am liking the Rainsports on the Alpine roads.
High 20's temps here and the sound of rubber on tarmac is great. Good feeling of traction, only let down are the creaks and groans from the 22 year old body frame.
