As a wee update, after trialling the completed car, a clutch problem developed :crybaby: :crybaby: :crybaby: which we think may be caused by a broken spring :ffs: in the clutch housing. Give us a chance to look at the original MR2 clutch to see if its up to handling the 4 wheeel drive power
No big deal as Parts-King is sending up some bushes to hold the car in a straight line anyway!!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Its an engine out job unfortunately, but this time will be more straightforward having done it already - looks great with 18" wheels and KAD brakes by the way.

Ian Strachan of Royal family fame !!!!!!! Naw - it wisnae 50k I asked fur - it wis 500M :lol: :lol: :lol:

Gearbox removed with engine still in situ.....
clutch plate at fault - we think as it was worn (but not totally) then it wasn't handling the power from the engine thru to the 4 wheel drive. New clutch being fitted and hopefully allow some road tests very soon. Got some great photos of the underneath - exhaust and front brakes.
Amazed at the good condition of the front subframe....after 13 years! Just like new.
However bad news is the front bull bar is more rotten than I thought so that'll need replaced very soon. Its the type that wrapped around the headlights .
I'll load up the photos to my website. Rear step is also a bit bent from hooking up trailers, but i reckon either a new one or removing it is the solution. :( :unsure: :)

:eek: Bothy, I don't think you have a RAV anymore, you have a low flying jet fighter...that just happens to look like a RAV! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Glad she's back on the road and living up to all the expectations and hard work put into her. Well done to you and your lads at the garage :toast:

After a traumatic week, I went up to Callander to watch the sons play rugby.
Took the RAV whilst I have it during the 'bedding' down period. The roads were wet with some showers. However the RAV was running well. The suspension bushes haven't been done yet so its still a bit 'twitchy' on the road. Accelaration is good and I really enjoyed out-accelarating a new Audi A5. He passed me on a clear stretch doing 120 - I felt that 110 in 4th was enough until the bushes get sorted!
It happily runs along at 110 in 5th with more to give... will get photos uploaded soon.
With the old dears funeral on wednesday things have been pretty hectic and I've not had a chance to keep up with the posts.....
