right so an update for all. went to drive and inspect the car on a mot ramp today. i told him it had the rear repaired and i looked inside and underneath and it has got the best repair i have ever seen.only noticable to the trained eye were there was a little overspray on the o/s chassis leg underdeath. perfect job. car drove mint and i asked about him being linked to ralliart and cheshire car perfomance. he was c performance on pistonheads but people kept associating him with cheshire performance so he asked pistonheads to change his name to clives performance. he has no links with ralliartuk which is now called asf motors i think he said. he also said he would drive me there and say so infront of the guys face,,fair enough.the only thing putting me of this car is the amount off rust on the suspension not bodywork.it looks like its been parked on the titanics deck.i suppose being from scotland its had some rough weather to contend with. mileage is 108000kms.i now know joe owned it from import, then andy. then a trader in slough who was trying to make a fast buck and now here. i want to make clear i did not know this guy before i went to view the spec c but my view is he is a genuine guy.careful who he deals with.. just wanted to post my views of clives performance.
