Like that. Get a proper import number plate on the offset though and front lip.

Cool. I chopped a laguna splitter up for mine but went with body coloured OEM one in the end, looked much better.

there should be some people there with a decent bit of knowledge so you may be able to get some advice on how to fix it. What are the issues you've got???

overheating, iv taken out the thermostat, been advised that its more than likely not the water pump (have to take the timing belt off to change the waterpump so i wont be doing that) the rad is coming off tomorrow and being tested in grantham or peterborough and maybe a new one if thats the problem. apart from that im stumped.

did it have water in it?? (ie. no leaks)

If the engine is hot, does the rad feel hot??

ye when its overheating all the water from the rad is going to the overflow tank, the rad is out and being tested in a little bit and hopefully they will say just needs cleaning or a new rad. and there is one little part of the rad that i could put my hand on, was just luke warm.

well bit of an update, she is all running sweet now, she does need a really good clean though but due to the hose pipe ban im unable to wash her. hopefully she will be shiny again soon and then hopefully i will be able to bring her along some time, will get some pictures this week to post up

if you have a pressure washer, just use it from a big bucket/wheely bin etc. as they will pull the water from it.

you can still use a hose pipe, just as long as its not connected to the mains ;-)

job done.
