I would say I would love to come as I am in the market for a body lift on Banshee and the experience would be useful ... however I am busy that day. Leaving Banshee for a week in some "Crazy Fool's" hands :shock: :shock:

Thanks for all the help with my brakes guys.

They still don't work, so I'm gonna need some more help. Might see how the cash flow is and put it into a garage for them to mess about with :roll:

Dan. Sorry I couldn't hang around to help with your bearings.
I do have a new home now though

I'm sure its just a case of spending some time adjusting them. But as long as the foot brake works then its just a pain more than anything :P

a big thank you to Rob, Paul, Dan :clap:

the day started at 8:30 for me went out side to moved the car so we had room all the way round it. removed the radiator (or should i say oil cooler :lol: ) so i could get the cowling out. removed the rear bumper, started to remove the body mount bolts. then at 10:30ish i lost about an hour when an ebay member arrived and told me his life story :roll: by that time Rob & Paul turned up. finished putting my 2" lift on then Modified the bumper's then fitted them instilled the radiator with out the cowling and Modified the lower rad pipe cos it was to long. then started the engine to bleed the radiator. by about 4pm job one done :D

then we tried sorting paul's brakes out new rear disc's and hand brake cable's fitted but the hand brake is still not working right, :?

then about 7pm paul had to go home & Rob had to pick Neal up from Greg's workshop.
so that just left me and Dan to do his front wheel bearing by that time is was dark so out come the Halogen lamp in the end we got it done by 11pm :lol:

now a vary big thank you to lisa for putting up with all this and for making the bacon roll's + baking cake's then making lots of tea ~ coffee :clap: :clap:

Glad your all sorted out ready for the annual.

Paul, you may find that your brakes need to bed in a little and the new cables need to stretch. If you don't get it done before the annual we can have a look then.

Regards

Sorry I had to leave, turned into a loooong day. Glad to hear you got the wheel bearing done and the way it looked as I left it needed doing.
Bob is looking the part now just need to bigger wheels.
Paul's brakes are a bit weird, we adjusted them as per the book of lies, and still no handbrake, but I am sure we can fix it.

I hope Andy and Paul are not in too much trouble.
