I'd be up for embarrassing you lot with the little Bimmer. If there's only a few up for it, Cati can sneak us into the Kennels :D

Otherwise we can eat bacon rolls on the gravel! Be just like the old days eh Nic?

Sunday morning I decide to get my ass in gear and change the idler pulley on the Stang... the pulley I bought from Mike at the BBQ in July!

The bearings failed on the VMP one I got as part of the Smaller pulley upgrade. Turns out the temporary one I had fitted wasn't an ideal solution (then again it was temporary) as it was quite a bit smaller...ie not 90mm.

Anyway... a few pics :)

Temporary one...

New billet 90mm...

All back together (you can't see the damn thing :()...

I didn't actually do much to it, but Mike and the boys at ModUrStang did, I basically stood around drinking coffee and watching while my Mustang was treated to a full service and a very comprehensive health check.

Image

The bushes were shagged on my lower control arms which has been making the handling from the rear end 'interesting' to say the least and it seems like they are a bit of a poor design anyway so I didin't need much persuasion to invest in a new set of BMR contol arms with poly bushes and the difference was noticeable straight away on the drive home.

Not actually necessary (but I'm a sucker for shiny bits :lol: ) was the addition of new clear front indicator units which I think work well on a car this colour.

I haven't used ModUrStang before but it was well worth the 150 mile round trip in the rain to get work done there and I'll certainly use them again. They gave me some great advice and sorted out a few annoying niggles the car has had for a while and I'm pleased to say they gave it a clean bill of health (it's always a relief to know you haven't bought a lemon :rock )

The only thing I actually did myself today was give it a quick clean when I got home as it was minging after 150 motorway miles in the rain!

Clear lenses look good and Mike will be pleased he has some more LCAs to add to his sculpture! :lol:

TT's back is giving him grief again at the moment, so I'd struggle to detail my own Mustang :cry:

Checked fluids, tyre pressures and loaded up a bag of tools ready for a track day at Goodwood later this week. I kinda hope the weather clears up a bit.

Managed to get it started to move it to my new House, conked out as I was reversing it into the garage.

Alternator on it´s way so once I have finshed unpacking, the front end is coming off to fit all of the bits I have purchased over the last few months and a full service and fluid change :D I may even clean it!
