Long Time Lurker

Postby pinkmouse on Thu Jan 08, 2015 1:19 pm

Hi folks

Just bought my second Fronty, a R reg 2.0 Sport facelift, so I think I've shown myself committed enough to hold my head up here. ;)

Lovely nick, unmodded, 98 thou on the clock, and metallic green. Came to me from Devon, via Brighton, and it's quite distinctly covered in stickers, Monster, Alpine, and prancing horses that look a bit Ferrari, so I have a suspicion it may well be known around here. However, once the rain stops, it'll be out with the hot air gun and T-cut...:D

Just said farewell to the original red leafer, loaded up on a truck to go down to the Gregster for breaking. It was getting tired, and the engine finally dropped a valve, so time for replacement.

Anyway, should be around here a bit now, as I plan to do more stuff on this myself, rather than just dropping it off at the local mechanics.

Cheers!

I'm in sunny Chatham, just up from the station. I've already had a chat with Greg about the meet-ups, and will come along if I can.

This Fronty is an everyday drive, so won't do too much mud with it, I'll save that for the summer festivals. Anyway, most of my off-road experience is from driving an old series two Landy across the Sahara desert twenty odd years ago, not much mud there! :D

Apparently "Identify it" is not the correct answer!

Well, next time you go, look up the hill a bit and you might see the green thing!
