Tight in two hours I'd say...

prep 15 mins
spoiler removal 15 mins
ball joints 15 mins per side
brakes 20 mins per side (I'm assuming you'll need to measure/shim the new calipers)

That's 1hr40 already without anything going wrong...

Good luck!

 two hours to remove the knackered nuts holding the splash guard in place.[/b]
nah

they are already gone...
but I reckon another 20 mins faffing about getting the captive nuts to fit...

And I have my friend the pneumatic impact driver
I may be unpopular at 9.00 am sunday

brakes are a no -go at the mo
one missing nut

so

I have been promised the brembos for thursday
if they do not turn up I will be fitting the old ones and I have enough time to source the missing bolt ...
I guess I am going to have a busy thursday...

monday evening is for polishing
