My good friend Craig spent the whole day today helping me get the ZR ready for Fast & Modified in 2 weeks.
The guy is a total gentleman! :yes:

Im starting to love my wee ZR again, which is nice, and its really starting to get back to its former glory :thumbsup:

We gave it an oil change, new oil filter, flushed the entire coolant system including the heater matrix (where me and Craig ended up soaked! :D), new coolant, new front engine mount, re-fitted my rally mudflaps and repaired my somewhat knackered rally bumper.

Had a great day, and the weather stayed nice for us too!

A few pics of how its standing at the moment (notice the brick under the bumper on the driverside which is holding up the bumper till the Sikaflex dries :blush:).............









And a short vid of its now healthy sounding T-16 turbo engine.......

Thanks guys :thumbsup:

Im really starting to love the car again! Its been a long 5 months, with the car being off the road for 2 1/2 months of it :(

Its running well now tho, that engine is a good runner and should see me good for a while yet. Ive started the ball rolling with a new forged engine tho ;)

There will be wheels which will suit it better, but im wanting to keep it as "standard" looking as possible. Other than the rally bumper, there isnt alot else thats non-standard :D
Under bonnot mods is where its at ;)

Was good to meet you that day Danny. Kinda sad you'll not make Fast & Modified :(

My rally bumper is ****ed! That was the best we could get it looking, and its still a mess!
Im not paying a bodyshop to tart it up again tho, its just too low at the front. Ill keep it till its wrecked then punt it on :)

Nah, the straights are here to stay im afraid. Im thinkin about getting them reburbed in white, but we shall see ;)

The straights are as close to rally car wheels as you can get without spending a fortune on Compomotive wheels :yes:
