I wanted to introduce myself as I have recently become the very proud owner of an ex-academy car. Having had the privilege of owning some high powered cars over the years I recently decided to stop trying to find a commuter-trackday "all rounder" by trading in my Alfa Romeo Giulia Q for a Model 3 and the C7 - both very different propositions but both fulfilling their remit perfectly!
I have zero experience with hands on mechanics and learning these skills is part of the journey for me, along with upgrading the car through the championship pathway as I become more competent and capable. I am hoping to learn to feel the benefits of better suspension, anti roll bars, LSD etc as my car control skills improve one step at a time. An exciting journey ahead :)
A 5 hour trip back from Gatwick to Manchester made me realise I am going to struggle to get on with the Tillet seats so my first self assigned challenge is to swap them for some standard leather ones and perhaps the roll cage for a roll bar at the same time - just to make the car just a little more comfortable.
Having zero experience or tools to assist me I was going to start with the Draper tool set from Caterham - would that be a wise move?
Any advice much appreciated - along with everything/anything else you would recommend purchasing, reading, considering or doing!
