2K stuff is great but you really, really must use a proper filtered face mask (ideally air fed!) and cover your skin, as well as spray somewhere with either filtered ventilation or a long way from...

The IACV on the Impreza does the opposite and just chugs away like it's running on 2 cylinders. Max RPM sounds a little more dramatic!

Those caster numbers are something Impreza owners can only dream of! I was happy with 4.5 degrees the other day (stock is about 3.3).

Totally with you with people working on your car who aren't...

MOT time today (given how little it's been used in the last twelve months this came as rather a surprise). And it passed. What it did make me realise is that since this time last year it's covered a...

It's more the time than the materials I reckon, and in restoring a wheel's existing cover I think £100 seems quite reasonable. The £150 for a re-trim sounds rather low as from memory Royals are at...

I feel your pain, I've been there with my own F31 after hitting the deer, struggling to find the source of the knock at the front and then someone keying it just after getting all the paint sorted!...

That looks like it should be repairable with one of the restoration dye kits. It would probably be easier to take it out and airbrush it to get an even finish but it shouldn't cost you more than £50...

If you haven't come across it before, migwelding.co.uk might be a good place to ask. Chances are someone on there has already done the work so could tell you straight off!

I know our expectations of used cars differ based on that past thread but 12k cars should definitely be in true nearly new condition. Unfortunately you're right in that most people simply don't care...

Looking forward to this, always good to see cars brought back from the brink of death and see what mechanical work gets done to them!

So an instrument can't test anything but your eye is 100% accurate? Ultimately most of the finish to a car is in the prep of the paint, getting it smooth etc whether that be through compounding or...

There's a lot of 'greenwashing' going on at the moment so with anyone talking about sustainability in their products I tend to take a very critical view, along with a large pinch of salt. Ultimately...

Underside rebuild episode #262814

I think this might be the last update for the underside of the front end.

In the last update I covered the rack installation and PAS pump, all bolted back in place with brackets and bolts that had...

I think a lot of the anti-japanese sentiment came after the war. Certainly my Nan was always quite anti-japanese when purchasing stuff because her husband had fought against the Japanese in Burma. I...

That's looking good. The Sottozero's are great tyres. I've got a set for both the Impreza and the 335 and they're good all rounders for Scotland. I do think the latest Good Year Ultragrip Performance...
