Havent updated this in a long time

Well i found my self a job finally, been working since before xmas

Nothing much has been done to the car expect

Having to replace the radiator, as something had put a hole in it and it started leaking everywhere,

So i replaced that to find that the transmission oil kept leaking out the trans cooler in the radiator for some reason, they reckon that it was my trans line,

But i decide instead of stuffing around just to buy a trans cooler and get it installed

So all thats fixed, waiting for my spare rim to come back from getting repaired repairs becuase the other day when it was pissing down with rain i hit a pot hole with the left hand side rim and it bent it

Still drives normal but the steering wheel has a slight shudder to it

Should have the rim sorted out hopefully this week with a wheel alignment and balance

Got my cruise control buttons put back in finally as well, yay

Also orderd my stone tray from ford as well, and got a bag of 20 scrivets from a memeber on aff

Also by chance at the wreckers the other day i came across a gold au with very good front guards, paint in very good condition, no dents and just slight marks which will buff out, couldnt get a front bar though as they were all stuffed

So ill just order a brand newy in primer and put that on the same time as i put my inner gurads back in and the new front guards as well

Also orderd another header tank to replace my murky looking one as well

But yeh been quiet busy with the car lol,

oil IN your radiator is faulty lines on the car.. umm at which point does the gearbox fluid mix with water apart from in the radiator? they are spitting you s**t. if oil is leaking in then water will be leaking out which will root your box or if you bypassed it like i do then it will drain and blow your motor
