Hmm, let me guess which mob did it, hmmm I wont say it here.

Did you go back to them? They at the very least owe you a set of wheel nuts and an apology.

update
found a split thermostat hose which was caused by a cheap hose clamp.
also top radiator hose was leaking under pressure due to it being silicone and with out wide clamps
i added a extra skinny clamp and it seems that my minor cooling issues have subsided .I hope!
any way it was 36 degrees ambient and the temp didnt go above the A even in traffic :D
head decks been in for a few days without issue .
i have chucked in all the the wiring ,subs and amp.
i made a pretty major mistake by wiring the 2 dvc 1000w 2 0hm subs in paralel instead of in series the amp is 2ohm thank jebus for thermal protection.
i was gonna skitz till i showed dad what i did on the white board and realised :oops:
the 36amps of fuses would have been so close to cooking my maths reckons.
