#399200 Irish Meet August 2014

Good suggestion Lenny. I like the idea of car park, food and toilet :) Would come in handy after a long drive indeed. Then convoy to a scenic spot for pictures would be the cherry on top. 
 
How far would that be for you kpg? Is it too far? Maybe take a sick day off work? I could give you a cert :P


Lol get me a cert then :P

It's around 120 miles away :-/

Theres the Lake Land Retail Park in Cavan,
May be an option?
Large car park space, food and toilets, perhaps gather there and travel in convoy to a more scenic area for pictures aswell,


Good suggestion but gawd I wouldn't get the time off work to do that trip :(

Lenny, fire away with suggestions as we might as well put our thinking caps on and start planning ahead. I don't mind driving as long as it's not a huge trek. Once I get home, I will look up some places.
 
By the sounds of it, halfway between Northern Ireland and Republic would suit the majority of us? Do correct me if I'm wrong :)
 
Looking forward to this and getting excited: First FOC Ireland meet :) 


I agree. Everyone meet halfway, seems the fairest way to go.

50" :o
Ow you have big, big Cojones :lol:

Also when you said about your partner collecting it: reminds me of a story,

I knew a guy from Tallaght in Dublin called Gary, who's missus won a 32" led TV back in 2004,
She won it on a local radio station,
FM104 back when the first came out,

So Gary came home from work and was told by his missus to pick up the prize the following day,
Gary was working down the country the next day,
As result he collected the TV before work,
Since Gary's an electrician driving a hatch back mk3 Mondeo,
His boot compartment was full f tools,
So he slid the TV box in on the back seat footwell's, and off to work he went,

Later that evening Gary was driving home,
And much like dan, he had a car u his rear on approaching traffic lights,
Gary spotted the cops at the junction and knew he couldn't continue,
So he braked hard, hoping the car behind wouldn't rear end him,

Upon stopping Gary felt a thump on the back of his seat,
He assumed the car behind had rear ended him,
Gary kept out of the car and without checking for damage t his vehicle proceeded to give the driver of the car behind him an ear full, standing at their window,

When mid flight he remberd the LCD TV he had put on the back footwell's that morning,
The driver behind hadn't rear ended him,
When he braked hard,
The TV box flipped forward, hitting his seat,
Resulting in him assuming the car behind had hit him lmao


Hhaaa oh dear, silly boy !

I actually have an earful to a not so cheery chap today who didn't know how to use a merge lane, obviously he thought I was to blame.

It's amazing how certain people are allowed to drive.

I know a woman who has the worst kind of diabetes, doesn't take medication for it, has blacked out 5 times behind the wheel and she is still allowed to drive.

The 5th I actually witnessed her crashing into 2 cars.

Class.

Ive got a 21" led in the living room :rolleyes: i know, i know im a disgrace to the male community i have no manhood lol every man has to have a big tv i plan to purchase a 42" before Christmas and feel like a real man again :)
My old 32" Bravia broke two years ago when one of the kida hit off it resulting in it falling face down on to a pile of Lego bust the screen,

I actually have the steering limiter kit and the camber bolts I won today on eBay for £15 New. Can I fit the bolts myself or is it a specialist job to get fitted and set up properly ?

they look fantastic mate JJC are a quality supplier too so ther3 description of parts would be 100% accurate you can be sure if they say it fits you4 car it does,
They also trade under the name Demontweaks,
Find a set of pads to go with those and would look awsome inside the alloy wheels.


Excellent. I May purchase these very Soon. Off topic here but could you post me the like to your tutorial on eibach camber bolts ?

Posted by kpg on 04 August 2014 - 09:13 PM

sadly not mate the ST uses 4 pot brakes i think the focus are 2 pot,
ST discs are much bigger circumpherance. Ive not researched brake disc upgrades too much myself to be honest at present my experience in this field is very limited, just thought the grooved discs look good and have read good reviews about EBC


Ah I see, I don't know anything about brakes full stop lol I actually found a couple EBC sets my model at decent enough prices.

Here's one, http://pages.ebay.co...6259468&alt=web

i have yet to upgrade personally but i was looking at EBC Green Suff pads. Also saw some grooved brake discs on ebay.co.uk looking pretty sweet,
Heres a thread that recently changed theres may also help:

Ok, I think I need new brake discs. What are the best set of front discs for a nice little upgrade ?
