    Clutch was done about 6weeks ago although the car is still with them as they was ment to be doing the rear end whilst they had it. I havent seen it in 14weeks.
    I will get my chap who mots my car and van to fit them, at the same time i might get him to fit my discs and pads as they are still sitting here gathering dust.

    14 weeks? Blimey I'm guessing they're having issues?

    I agree 100%, the only job I admit I cant do is body and paintwork, I dont have the patience. I would rather spend the money on the tools so I can do the job than pay some one else and then find its not to my standard. Luckily I have a friend who had a body shop.

    I'm beginning to get on a bit now so slowly scaling down what work I do on cars . I sent my son's mg montego turbos engine off to be rebuilt as I didn't want to do that any longer . Completely messed it up so I took it back and did it myself... Again. Comes a point when I now only trust a few places these days but I have to stop at some point.
    I feel for Phil though having to wait that long as it shouldn't be like that
    If theres something I can't do on my zt I will always send it up to Chris at retro sports as I trust him

    Funny you mention Chris at retro sports, I had a mk1 260 bumper dropped of at my house yesterday by a nice chap called James and his partner is Chris,s daughter..
    we had a nice chat...
    I think in future i will be using retro sports for any work that needs doing..

    You could do worse. Chris' reputation is excellent. Wish he were closer for me .
