    That's the way to do it

    We haven't got it yet! We had a purchase fall through at the start of the Covid outbreak and haven't been able to get back since. We're looking to buy in the hills of Bordighera (between Ventimiglia & San Remo). We're ready to purchase, it's just a case of finding the right place, perhaps a half-built project as there are a few of them around. An expensive area though.

    I have taken this to another (off) topic so as not to clog up Marks Thread...

    Windows...speaking of windows. Some food for thought here: https://www.wallpaper.com/lifestyle/...-garage-design Sure, some of that is a little bit of fantasy but I'm really thinking about getting more from the cars than I currently do.

    Obviously not as fancy but it’s one of the reasons I have my ‘garage’ set up like this - I get quite a bit of enjoyment just looking at my car. Here she’s in a bubble for when I use the golf simulator which I’m standing in front of to take the picture but I’ll often use the room to watch tv for sports events etc as the sim doubles as a 10 foot tv screen and then she’ll be out of the bubble. Wife laughs at me but I'm sure she'd prefer me turning my garage into a lounge rather than turning the lounge in the house into a garage

    Pete, that's superb. I could get a lot of enjoyment from that. Nicely done.

    Cheers. That's really why I did it - you can only be driving your car for a certain amount of time, 'traditionally' most of the rest of the time (which is the vast majority) they're shut away in a dark garage. I'm very much of the camp that these cars are, to an extent, 'automotive' art so why not enjoy that aspect as well.

    I don't know why but I really like the five-spoke wheel of this luxury car.

    Front Suspension Refresh
    The suspension components take a beating in these cars. The Hill Engineering track rod ends were new only 7k miles ago, but poor road surfaces wear them out in no time. I put together a spare set of wishbones to make the swap easier with less time off of the road.

    I had the arms vapour blasted. I'm going to replace all ball joints, track rod ends, and the flamblocs. The arms will be assembled by AV Engineering.

    Here's what the titanium wheel spindles look like after vapour blasting. Now I will send them for hard anodising, which is the final surface treatment process before they are ready to use. The end result will be a perfect match for the OEM titanium wheel bolts.
