    I apologize, I didn't mean anything by it. It just didnt make sense to put that heavy of an oil in. But if its what's reccomended then I can't really say much.

    Sorry if I seemed snappy, didn't mean too.

    And I didn't run out of petrol. I didn't take the choke out. Don't know which is worse anyway though.

    I think my first car had a choke too - was a 1985 Ford Telstar Ghia 2.0L 5spd manual. Wasn't properly my car (got it when I was neatly 16 to learn in, but wasn't registered in my name obviously). Ended up with too many cars so we decided to get rid of it and I learnt in our Mitsubishi Starwagon (8 seat van) 5spd manual.

    Had an interesting day...

    Made the ramps today. Only just made it up the first step. Planed them off so it was a less steep gradient and much smoother. Made if just over halfway up and it just couldn't make it further and I rolled backwards, straight over the blocks of wood behind the rear tires and straight into my stepdads tool shed.

    So there's a big exhaust shaped hole in the side of it. And also all of the water and muck got shot out of the exhaust and also made the side of the shed black. My car took a dump.

    So it's a good job I didn't buy the metal ramps as I'd have no chance getting up them as my wooden ones were only 4 steps high and not 5.

    Getting a jack tomorrow to lift the car up and put the ramps under the tires. I will get the car on the ramps!

    Why don't you get some friends around and just pick the car up?

    That's been suggested, but I don't want to rip its face off.

    Exactly haha.

    Went and bought a trolley jack today but it wouldn't fit under the front of the car. It would sort of but not under the subframe, just a few mm too tall. So we tried to get each wheel onto a plank of wood 47mm thick with a sloped edge. But nope, couldn't do it. We had to push it while I was using the engine to get up. Managed to make it up in the end and change the oil. Oil didn't loo too great... And only 3 litres came out when there should be 4.5 in it.



    Also found the horn and screen washer. They're funny.



    For the first few miles after the oil change the car had no power at all. But once It got around the engine it was like a whole new car. Very nippy but it's probably slow. Feels really quick.

    Although before it started working properly I had someone flash their lights at me because I could only do 20mph up a hill in second with my foot down. But then I shot away on the corners which put a smile on my face.

    Went out for a nice 60 mile drive earlier. Took a 40 minute video of me being scared dodging potholes which I'll get uploaded later or tomorrow. It did between 65 and 70mph surprisingly easily but then blew a cloud of smoke under the car which came through the hole where the gearbox cover should be. It didn't like doing that speed. We think it was oil being burnt off as it is a tad over the max mark on the dipstick.

    It was so fun but there's still plenty of work that needs to be done on the car.

    New front tyres
    New valves on the rear alloys
    New alloy wheel caps(only has 2...)
    Ride height adjustable suspension cones
    Find the main leak
    Fix the windscreen seal
    Refurb and repaint the alloys white
    New oil seals, CV joint and knuckle gaiters
    Maybe a new exhaust, not just a tip like the current one
    Might get a quickshift kit
    4 wheel tracking

    Nothing too expensive. It will cost about £100-150 minus the tyres which will be about £125 alone.

    I believe it's located on the right side of the car.

    It also looks a lot nice when the carpet is in... But until I fix the leak the carpet will be staying on the back seats.

    I dunno, their civilization fell apart, which means what they did, didn't work.

    Glad to see/hear the Mini works.

    The centre caps for alloys are very hard to find and very expensive.

    Should I paint the alloys white or repaint them in gold?
