  1. I wouldn’t buy a recently restored car, the recent price increases make a bondo and newspaper restoration a financial win for a seller, then 12 months down the line it has more blisters than a herpes convention. If you can find a car with online history from a good owner cashing out (rather than cashing in) that’s where I suggest you put your money.
  2. Early mk3 gtis / vr6s (with rectangular side repeaters and 280mm brakes) had the same crap ABS system
  3. There’s a couple of white ones with DTM yellow and black decals that don’t look half bad….
  4. MJM Thompson on the lorry?
  5. It’s often been said (until recently) that corrado prices don’t reflect their rarity / value, I bet you’re glad you don’t support the Vauxhall badge? https://www.handh.co.uk/auction/lot/lot-814---1996-vauxhall-calibra-20-se6/?lot=56473&so=0&st=&sto=0&au=514&ef=&et=&ic=False&sd=0&pp=48&pn=1&g=1
  6. I’ve just scrapped a storm that was good on top but a rusty horror underneath (eyes full of rust / showers of rust etc), it had been in my dry garage for 7 + years.
  7. Posted on ccgb for you https://www.facebook.com/groups/746458145534377/permalink/2220512958128881/
  8. There ccgb on fb, also corrado chat too
  9. It’s not been exported, still in the same hands that SORNed it, nothing on previous mots for rust, so if it’s tucked up in a well ventilated garage it should be a solid car The above are screenshots of Vehicle Smart app Good luck with y to our search. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Front plate mounting

    Magnets behind the bumper?
  11. Mine will go to auction, can’t stand messers and time wasters. I’ve sold 1 car in the last 22 years, a £300 Skoda rapid, mine get broken or WBAC
  12. Made it out of the garage so I can tidy up some what! I’m determined to run it on the road next year.. 6 years standing and it ran up to temp nicely, 107k survivor car (minimal chineseum shite!). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Its such a shoddy set up, my heaterbox fell into two halves when I unbolted it from the bulkhead,does anyone know the cost of it? It must have been "premium" as the car was extortionate when new...
  14. Heater flaps falling apart will allow hot / cold to be mixed
  15. You need to chock the rear wheels and use the powertrain to force suspension etc backwards / forwards with some slightly brutal clutch control. Check engine mounts too
  16. Something else, are the inner CVs shifting / bolts tight?
  17. If you’ve powdercoatd the subframe it could be crushing reducing the torque as it does so? id want metal to metal contact before torquing, prove the issue then spray wax to prevent corrosion if you want to.
  18. If it’s not pad slap, then I’d look at wishbone movement, the bush centre slapping on the bolt? you could also swap pads side to side to eliminate that?

  20. That’s a nice pension fund right there 👍
  21. I always preferred my mk2 non PAS car to my friends assisted car both being on 15s. Do you still own Zerstorer and Blitz Steve?
  22. I've just received an email informing me of this post! Bump in case its been caught up in recent forum issues
  23. So a "prime" button on the dash firing the fuel relay prior to cranking would help this situation? Many have swapped the FPR believing it was the cause of the pressure losses, but in MJAs case it was leaking injectors also flooding bores preventing a spark - double whammy!
  24. Personally I’d rather fit an under bonnet fuel pressure gauge than an NRV, then you’d know exactly what the pressure was on a non start / long crank.
  25. Cressas appears to be backwards, the arrow on the NRV is pointing against the flow? If the pipe wraps around the tank like yours it's is correct, I imagined it looped anti clock and the arrow on the NRV would then be the wrong direction.
