Brilliant thread Thumbs Up Great to see it being used and abused then upgraded nicely to suit. How do you find the hybrid? Would be interested in doing it as I have put up with the standard map for far too long already.

I had it done at same time as remap intercooler etc and it was a bit of a jump in performance lol

Tried a couple times to sell on ebay and failed so I think its the car telling me not to sell her so decided to keep her and just finance my business venture through the bank Whistle

shes currently in the garage for its 6k oil change, fix the broken rear brake light, tidy up the rear x member and tow pack as its rusty and a few minor niggles

Ill be ordering a new windscreen soon as its cracked and the heated screen doesn't work as a result

also be going to buzzweld for a chassis treatment before winter kicks in and look at new front seats (Recaro's) and also new steering wheel as both are getting tatty. Also rear corner bumperettes to protect the rear corners and the lights. 2008 Corris Grey 110 XS USW

its back! Mr. Green

Bum looks better with a quick spray over of the x member and cage, also broken brake light replaced as well as mismatching indicator replaced for a matching one.

Also had new track rod ends, a fresh mot with a wheel bearing as only advisory duly replaced with a timken.

double din bought

not looking so clean now with a oil leak blowing onto the back, looks like it might be the transfer box seal, 3rd one this year! Mad 2008 Corris Grey 110 XS USW

110 has had some new corner bumperette fitted as I keep smashing the back lights


not much to report apart from its still ticking up the miles, I think its on 185,000 miles now. Mr. Green Thumbs Up

Added a MUD UK handle to my storage drawer so I can now open it easily instead of trying to get my finger round the edges of drawer Laughing

Also got a MUD UK rear window grille for £45 posted as it was a prototype but it doesn't have the cut out for the high level brake light so ill have to cut it out and paint the cuts before I can fit it.

What a beauty you have there. I love the roll cage, and have thought about getting one myself, thin I was quoted about 3-4k and would loose the truck for 3 weeks...

I struggled with that fact. She's my daily...

May have to wait for a summer time and use my hike to get to work... 😔 Regards
