TBH it's in that good nick it would be a short read, my only items to do on it are:

-steam clean chassis and under seal
-reseal high top
-flush and change coolant

If I'm feeling adventurous I might fit a solar charging system!

As usual, the Ibiza decided to put up a fight when having it's new bushings in. For some reason they have aluminium consuls and steel bolts that secure the control arms into them, as has happened before, one has corroded into the consul and snapped the head off whilst being removed. So the car is spending the night on the lift with replacement parts on order. In the meantime, I've been lent the beast of a shop car:



A 1.2 3 cylinder with approximately a quarter of the power lol Ah well, it'll get me home til mine's good to go, tomorrow

Yeah, after this it's basically running all new suspension with a more or less full brace of superpro poly bushes so it should feel very tight and precise.. it's a very good handling car when setup right.

Just had eibach -30mm kit fitted to my 4Motion mk4 golf. Only driven about 6 miles but feels more compliant on the road

So to have fully refreshed must feel almost new
