    There’s a place in/near Northallerton that does get - shall we say - “mixed reviews” and not one I’d consider entrusting my car to.

    Garage floor levelling

    However, once I got back from work 4 hours later, all was less well than I had expected. The leak that i had thought plugged clearly was not. Quite a bit of the compound had flowed out and into the hole for an old air brick leaving a shallow slope where it had been flat. This was quite disappointing, as it had looked so good before I went out! Over that end section the compound is now quite thin, and there's the obvious lack of a nice edge to it to deal with too. Having done an initial look I can find a few products that can be put down to nothing, or a fe

    Garage floor levelling

    Thanks for the tips! Given that I had Friday off work, which was due to be my original XI kit collection date, I decided to give the garage a clean and prime the larger section of floor. I've been doing some tiling, and did all the cutting in side so the floor was filthy. I used way more primer than I had on the smaller section of floor, as I wanted every chance of a bubble free floor this time! This coat was applied neat, and is much more obvious. It took about 2.5 hrs to dry, with a decent flow of air through the garage and a pair of small heaters running to keep the temperature

    Special Edition Build. Starting 2020

    Delighted to have stirred up a little can of worms, and no definitive answer! I have no side screens or hood at the mo. I was waiting to decide what I fancied when I was finished so I can't offer them up. I will deffo wait 'til Monday and phone WSC who will not doubt have some dangler and bull story about what is right and why. 😁

    Anyone fitted an oil cooler to a sport 250 ?

    Hi mate. What temps are you seeing, water and oil. i have a tuned 2.0 ecoboost and I don’t see any unusual temps even on track. I can’t remember the exact numbers but on track circa 110 water and 125 oil max. that’s in 20 degrees ambient. these engines are designed to run hot, particularly compared to Zetec/red tops etc make sure your Coolant system is as efficient as possible, the ecoboost has a water-oil heat exchanger. this was where I had issues in the beginning. A few that help- proper ducting, lowe

    Mike, build diary below covers a 250 oil cooler/fan installation (from P28 onwards). @Exitus may be kind enough to answer any queries.

    Super Sport 1800 rebuild

    Sure you’ve thought of it already but just in case, if you can get hold of a sound meter, you could at least do a before and after check. Would at least prove it’s an improvement hopefully.

    Mega S2000 Build and Post IVA Upgrades by Si.

    Well the engine still hasn’t magicked its way back into the chassis, so I finished off mounting the smaller remote oil pressure sender. Just need to open up all the dash 2 wiring and figure out what I’m looking at again and get it all connected up.

    Sport 250 Part build to full build

    Afternoon spent fitting IVA caps & boots and cable protection Do I need to fit a rubber cap on the bottom ball joint outer under the lower arms. ?? As I seem to have 2 large round caps, and cant see where else they might fit that came in the factory IVA kit. Yes I did fit a sleeve over the track rod end while doing this. Cant believe how much time this took just for one side.

    Nice bit of duct work, that could work, but I would have to relocate my battery and space is tight on a sport 250 I did here someone had fitted one sport 250 with fan due to having to locate it behind the radiator
