John popped over...

Postby Fordoholic Nick » Sun Jun 24, 2018 7:48 pm

Hi all,

John popped over this evening to say hello and have a quick look at my new suspension set up. Always great to see him and his stunning Special ! Was really nice of him to compliment the new stance of B112. Today was the first time I had a chance to get it out of the garage since having the work done and clean off the Tickover Workshop Dust which they supplied free of charge :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyway thought I would post up a few pics...

Great pic this

John has returned his front end back to colour coded and we were commenting how his quad lights actually look better with the colour coded grill/light surrounds. Really does look spot on !!

John was saying he reckons I have gone lower than him now :lol:

Clive at Tickover fitted a 1.5" lowering block to the single leafs and it certainly looks on a par with Johns Special now which is what I was hoping to achieve :)

Now from Johns side...how good does his Special look !!!

And just after John left I took a few of mine before putting back in garage

So was great to see John and I had a quick listen of his new sound system set up. Jason, you will be very impressed indeed mate. Its amazing !!

All the best

Nick

Hi Nick,
Both the lacquer red twins are looking more stunning than ever!
I hope to see the improvements to B112 for myself at some point in the future. :D

Hi Nick,

Was great to catch up and see your new set-up on the Cappa fella. It really is looking amazing, the new wheels filling the arches and sat down on them now to boot now!!! Hardley surprising the whole driving experience feels new to you and your brakes are better too now the springs can actually hold the rubber down at the front and back. You are well chuffed having caught up with you, Cheshire Cat springs to mind!!!

Cheers Andrew too for the comment on mine, I can’t believe how the camera does mine so much justice, it’s like a side of a match box at the moment, all grit stuck to it, 2 weeks without a wash and it was way too hot to try n wash it today, so I just drove it!!! It really did look crap next to Nicks now he’s got the Tickover grit off it.... Cheers for now, thanks for posting the pics too Nick, nice one, cheers....

Hey Jason, yep, got a nice little twist to the Retrosound head now, Amp all installed and hidden behind the dash so I can still use my glove box.... But a little something else I can show off with..... :D :D :D Cheers for now....

John...

Looking forward to this as it’s a job I want to do and it really helps when you have the full set up John .
