The joys of tidying up after previous owners that dont have a clue how to look after their car!! Only took 4 days to get it all sorted. Loving my LCR!! next thing is to get 2 chips on my wind screen repaired, 4 new tyres, Air con service, fit boost gauge (Great manual by the way whoever wrote it - will defo be using it!!) and get the alloys refurbed as 3 are gun metal grey and one is black, plus one is starting to corrode abit so need it sorting before it gets too much!!
Removed the throttle body and gave it a feckin good clean.
Dogbone with RED Powerflex bush finally done and a new swing arm and some seals replaced.
It's handling like a DREAM on the Bilstiens now!!
Re wired my speakers behind the stereo after previous owner decided to chop some wires to fit an after market stereo (obvs never heard of wiring harness). Managed to get a loom from a breaker and just finished. Gutted to see that 2 of my door speakers have blown so had to fit some speakers to the parcel shelf till i can replace the ones in the door.

Swapped dump valve and relocated it and done n249 bypass. Wow. My standard dump valve must have been shafted coz performance wise its not in same post code now. Boosting well can hear turbo spooling up now where as before i couldn't and it now goes like it should
Fitted this again as wasn't happy with how it sat
And found metal in the header tank :-(

Moved it back onto the drive after being abandoned in the street for the last few weeks, and began the strip down
Had a lazy day this morning so didn't get a whole lot done, just removed the seats and the W8 light, and tidied the garage up a wee bit.
Modified the grills and fitted my DRL fogs, yes I will be using them as DRL's. Modified the switch so they works as DRL's are supposed to. Prob not to everyones taste but IMO they look better;
Also removed the front splitter, as my works multi storey does not allow it!
