Re: Worst feature

It's too difficult to shut the tailgate on a mk3 with a semi erect tent in the boot! (There were witnesses) A never to be forgotten moment :xd: Nor will my Nephews face be forgotten when I sold the car to him with it still in the boot!

Re: Change the condenser?

or spend £100 on an Aldon Ignitor Kit from Burton and never worry about points or condensers again. More MPG, better idle and yet it hides inside original dizzy. What's not to like? IMHO of course.

Re: Essex V6 Camshaft

Not one I have seen before. Last time I rebuilt a 3.0 V6, I used a V63 Cam from Burton Power. With larger inlets, and modded exhausts, it worked really well, especially in overtaking mid-range.

Re: Full Quad Light Conversion

What a tidy and cool upgrade Nick. Deffo worthwhile and the wiring looks very professional.

I usually fit Nightbreakers to my daily's as they are for sure better than std. Worth the money IMHO. :agree:
