turbo to repair or break anyone ?

What grabbed my attention was the new rear light clusters ! Thankfully the vandals left them alone. Rear lights/half leather interior/saleable reg/airbag/auto box, got a lot going for it.

PS: If anyone runs into breakdown issues up close to Aberdeen I do have a number of spares across to parts cars that could I'm sure to be implemented into action if required! :)
That's a great offer - haven't got a spare back box for a turbo I suppose ? :rofl:

Re: Lily's transformation

What was coming out of Lily's exhaust on the Derbyshire run might have made me a passable toupe!! :lol: I'm not sure long wavy hair would quite suit you :lol: damn, just checked the parts book and the back box on the 2 litre isn't the same as the turbo so it's back to the drawing board. Can't imagi...

Re: Lily's transformation

I seem to have rather neglected this thread. Shortly after collecting Lily from the wheel refurb, I applied a lot of throttle at a roundabout to slip into a smallish gap and she leapt forward with an almighty bang. Al following in Eva saw loads of smoke and rubbish fly out of the exhaust. She seemed...

Re: Scotland Mobile Mini Meet August 17TH 2019

And me too ;) You never know, it might happen - sightings of me in the Celebration are rarer than live photos of Nessie, mind :D
well, there's plenty of photos claiming to be Nessie, so we'll cross our fingers for a 480 claiming to be yours :lol:

Re: Scotland Meet July 2019

I'm now proposing to move the date forward to August - 17th to be precise. It's more convenient for us as well as a few other members, and gives a few 480s with problems a better chance of being sorted in time. I'll start a new thread with the date and schedule. Anyone else who'd like to come warmly...

Re: My 480 life is just beginning!

I had Lily's Vesas refurbished - expensive, but they stay much cleaner and just need a quick go over with hot soapy water and a soft brush to come up spotless.

Scotland Meet July 2019

Suddenly, it's not very far away. Yes, it's a long way to take a 480, but there are some glorious roads in Scotland so why not take a few days for the journey and make a holiday of it ? We'll be doing the same route as last year, starting at the fabulous Kelpies which have to be seen to appreciate f...

Re: Derbyshire Mini Meet 11th May 2019

Here's a small selection of stills from Al's dashcam - pity he didn't do some overtaking and get behind different cars but heyho, scenery is great on the sections where it wasn't raining. First sight of Ladybower reservoir - that's Ashley in front of Al, then Nigel then Eve then Will https://www.dra...

Re: Derbyshire Mini Meet 11th May 2019

She’s running a robou ecu isn’t she? Have you done the upgraded dump valves yet? Lily has a richmod, together with the maf and dump valves that came with it. Eva has the robou, and had a similar problem a while ago which turned out to be a connector come adrift from a pipe behind the dashboard. Lil...

Re: My 480 life is just beginning!

Yes, do come along if you possibly can - we have 4 other wives coming for the 'non-480' interest, as well as Rachel's other half, so Mrs zapcity should enjoy the day. Fingers crossed for nice weather so we can all appreciate the lovely surroundings as well as one another's company and cars.

Re: Nora, my numberless Celebration

Being a retired accountant I have a spreadsheet....... However, instead of boring numbers, it contains the plan for the year - which 2 480s are on the road when, all worked out by looking at when servicing / mots are due and which cars are going to meets. It's another year when the GT isn't on the r...

Re: Snazzy's story

Hooray, progress at last ! The new welder developed pneumonia and wont be back, two new guys tried out weren't good enough, but the one that retired has now started back part time. Holes in the boot are no more, next time he comes in he'll be starting on the wings.
