Well I spent Saturday afternoon playing with my new car. Seats swapped for ones with some cushioning! The old blue and black ones are missing a cushion I think!

The rear screen was glued in too, plastic rather than glass.

New beam going in this week, then it will be road legal.

Track day here I come!

Excuse my ignorance Andy, but what's a beam?

Hi Terry

A beam is Citroen's name for the rear axle, both rear wheel bearings are knackered, I'm hoping that using a replacement axle will be easier than changing both bearings.

The 2nd hand part is only held on by 4 big bolts and includes the discs, calipers etc. (will have to change ads and maybe discs too). Handbrake cable etc.

I'll post some pics if anyone is interested.

Pictures of you on track will be even more interesting :)
Have you got the pre-requisite shell suit and shades to go with the car ? ;)

I'm working hard on the ASBO necessary to drive the car on the road!

Well I now have an MOT on the Saxo, just looking for insurance, then i'll be off to my first track day in my new toy.

In the mean time I have been having fun in this, at a time trial session, what a laugh! Just need to adjust the handling a little!
