Went to the VOC National BKV yesterday. I was seduced by some chrome bits from Amazon Cars along with a very nice exhaust system as well so my wallet came away much lighter and the car much heavier. The exhaust system is by Simonz and I am assured will be much easier to fit than the stock system, so here’s hoping. It is also a larger bore than stock which should help the engine breathe a bit more easily and might even release a few more horses, again here’s hoping. Some very nice 1800s there which would have put mine to shame so it is just as well I didn’t take it. I picked up the upper ball joints there and the lower ball joints arrived today so I am just about set to go over the front suspension but I am not in too much of a hurry to do it as it might mean the car is not driveable for a while especially if the lower wishbone is as much of a pain to get off as some other people have experienced. This is quite likely as it is another sleeve over a bolt affair but much bigger than the sway bar link rod, so it will be much harder I expect.
