Yeah, if he had a choice between which of them would sell & which he would have to take, he would have taken the venturas, Pet Detective.

You've fitted the Michelin Pi-Pees because you had dead stock lying around in your shop. Not because they're better.

Of course Elfy, whatever you say boss!!!

Default Update

Ok guys the car was given to the workshop yesterday morning & by evening she had been more or less completely disassembled for all the work that was due. I was there all day so have quite a few pictures to post & will also post a complete list of parts being replaced/repaired.

Keep tuned!

Suspension being taken off








Leaking Axle which is going to be replaced


Leaking Shocker


The other side axle, also being replaced



Now when doing this dismantling we discovered another problem that the Steering Rack had also developed a leak. See below:


So we took that off to be investigated:


And sure enough there was a leak. However, after cleaning it up & sending to the machinist it was found that only the oil seals at the sides were leaking & the major structure had no cracks/leaks. So with new oil seals this one would be reused!! Yay for saved cost & Independent Garages!!! If this had been a Honda authorised SS I would have been considerably poorer!

More pics to follow, alongwith some clutch issues & complete list of components being replaced.

Ishan, pls store the old parts and whenever you sell the car show them to the buyer that his car is good for another 1,40,000 kms with the new ones.

Great work buddy. Good luck.
