  • weight saveing? seems slower!!!

    After an afternoons hard work i think i have now lost around 300 kilo in weight of the car but i think i may have done some thing wrong? when im in it it feels very hard and uncomfy ? and when i press the go pedal nothing seems to have improved if anything it feels as though its stood still? any ideas where i may have gone wrong?

                  The only way to make a skoda faster is to get more people to push it!

                        cream seats need cleaning and the easyiest way is to remove them and wet vac them and the alloys are in poor condition with the paint bubbleing so im going to refurb them black with a silver fleck THEN at the end of the week fit a FMIC and RARB
