    H&R lowering springs install: new video

    I would say an hour each on the front and two hours each for the rears, probably less with the right tackle, lift etc, took me about that time working off the garage floor one side at a time, give or take, and that was with some stubborn stuff.

    H&R lowering springs install: Part 2 (rear)

    I split the hub nut off to do mine, long way in to those cap heads if you don't have 4 foots worth of extensions!! See you don't use anti seize on reassembly I'm more for the once bitten twice shy approach based on it could be me pulling it apart next time.

    Yes it will be because no doubt when you had it down last time everything went back with plenty of anti seize!!

    H&R lowering springs install: new video

    Done everything that you are currently doing on your 986, takes a while between projects for your skin to grow back?!! But press on enjoying your vids and sympathisig at the same time, wait till you do the rear Spring change....a bit of a faff especially if you have no space and working on your back.

    Big Air for the Boxster!

    Oh yes!! But needed a re map to make the most, and the 987 Airbox job is somewhat of a challenge on bare skin and knuckles, so yes I've done it would I do it for somebody else no ....unless the price was right of course !!

    How To: Bring your Dash Speakers up to spec

    Just to say I was never over concerned as my set up sounds fine if not very good but Brotherhood of Man sounds good through any medium !!!

    How To: Bring your Dash Speakers up to spec

    I have the Bose upgrade installed in mine, door speakers, sub woofer type thingy behind the seats, would this suggest though that the dash speakers would still be the same naff ones as described, and if so can they be replaced?Only on that Alpine kit link, it says and not Bose?

    Cat D insurers

    That's interesting regarding details are stored in databases, because I can prove the opposite, recently tried as an exercise with we steal any cars .com. I put the details in without mentioning it was Cat D and was offered £5.7 K, filled it out again and this time mentioning it was Cat D and quote came back at £3.8K!!!!. If the data is stored surely they should know it's Cat D ?.
