Today I did exactly what the Gt86 was made for, kicked its balls round a twisty back road.
6am, no one around. Perfect.

Realised I missed my Gotcha day by a few weeks, so gave her a pat on the bonnet (obviously very softly as don't want to damage the paint!) Had this amazing car for 6 years and still admire her looks, the way that I feel when driving her and most of all the amount of fun and giggles that I have with her. Priceless.

I might get me one yes. I'll also postpone wheelswaps less then.
As for spacers: I don't intend to bother but I was curious how it worked. I've had quite a few bolts replaced because there was a time when nuts kept getting stuck. It's not that big a deal to replace them.
I still replace nuts as soon as there is damage on the threads.

Just given it a wash, and now I'm having a celebratory snifter of Islay single malt.
Cheers.

Pretty neat. Link?

I'd like to have a bag or something I can stick to the boot lid for all the bits that I keep in the boot, but only need for emergencies, or carry for Euro trips.... warning triangle, hi vis vests, etc.

No link as it's something I put together myself - I might be able to put a few kits together though if there's enough interest.

Yeah a neat boot storage solution would be good - I plan on a few euro trips so can see why one would be beneficial

Nice! Did you just use a nut on the inside of the boot lid? I've seen people using rivnuts before but wanted it to be removable so used a wingnut - it was a bit tricky getting my hand through the boot lid panel to the hole though!
