did a few bits today

cut the brake compensator off the rear axle so it doesn't fail MOT.

took the angle grinder to the calipers as they where catching the rims.

Fitted new spigots rings made by Curtis_Caddy, very very tight fit but jobs a good un. all rims are on now

fitted new fog light

buffed front bumper with shoe polish.....lol

fitted smaller wing mirrors but may have to repair the drivers side as the adjuster is missing, the glass moves when driving along from judders and road bumps.

took a couple of snaps

it'll be a similar colour to the beige when i have funds for paint job. I'm just using rattle cans on repairs at the mo Smile

I love the wheels, being 13's mean it sits low to ground, think i might have some clearance issues

Caddy's rule on 13's, just get a sump gaurd, Tiz knocked up one for me and i used it as a big ski to protect the sump, it grouded out loads but i never did any damage to any thing important.

i've just been tinkering about with the caddy and noticed the carpet under the drivers seat is soaking wet, it only appears to be the rear section.............any ideas where it may be coming in..? My lovely Blue 1.6D Caddy....First Project!! - Page 2 496877

i had mk3 cortina that leaked water seeped in the front screen when sitting about,the sealant had gone hard and the water run in through the cracks resealed it and it was fine.

Windscreen sealant try ebay i guess, give it plenty along the bottom of the window as the water runs down and round the window due to its shape.
i had the misfortune of trying to navigate my way round that estate in a
dustcart yeterday due to the main driver being off.

Doesn't sound like a bad fail. Nothing too major. Stick the repeaters on temporarily for the mot. Good luck getting it done.
