Do remember a comment about people like pushing him manually back into parking spots but don't know the story behind that lol . sound like fun though :-)
indeed the stress & hassle is probably worse than the money but I hate seeing useless cunts take money for shit work, especially if bragging be exceptional expert .
It good money & could of gone a long way in future work on car or been a start to Petes savings :-/ I would like punch them too, may send the misses with her kitchen knife, she more bad-ass than me .
When I had the box built up (before the par kit was fitted) it went into reverse once (bit of a struggle) and then wouldn't go back into reverse again!!! So engine and box out again took it back to him, he told me it was a little Spring about the size of your finger nail that had snapped (not his fault apparantly) so he removed it as it was of no real use basically. Obviously he removed the whole bloody mechanism!!

I have been following this thread very closely as not only is it very interesting, I also have a PAR 1-4 gear kit. Some times I have been shitting it reading this but... That box bloke needs fucking shooting!!
Not going to harp on but I have ragged the fuck out of it with approx 400 torques and it loves it. In fact, when ever I get home I wonder if I will still have a licence in the next 14 days...
Also without Cosmic dont think any one would be any wiser, top bloke.
The two points to my post are:
1 Talking of cunts, a massive one to stay away from is The Gearbox Specialist in Boscombe Dorset. I paid a grand (no paper work to avoid VAT big mistake, never again) to get a standard one rebuilt. Now that was about 3years ago and cant remember the exact details (Bob can confirm Im sure) but they put the clutch in the wrong way around or some thing. I drove it and instantly knew it was not right. A heavy pedal? This was a fucking a joke. The gear stick was very very stiff and it was almost impossible to drive around town. Felt like my foot was gonna go through the floor. It also destroyed my new helix organic clutch kit in well under a 1000kms. Was not impressed..
I went back nicey nicey at first which quickly led to moaning like fuck and he couldnt of given a shit. THE ONLY THING they were prepared to do was for me to take the box to them and then they would charge me £250 just to strip it down. After lots of fucks and offs they knew how I felt and I KNOW he KNEW he fucked it up but what could I do? My mate wanted to smash him right up but I just threatened him with the local rag but nothing ever happen due to no receipt. Piss takers, honestly. Oh and I think theres another one opened since in Southampton, again just putting it out there. So personally I know its easy for me to say but try to KEEP THE PRESSURE ON HIM. Hes fucked it big time, more than once by the sound of it.
2 I was offered a straight cut 5th but declined. Now reading all the posts here makes me wish I did, but trust me, the noise is devastating after 60-100 miles, so the quiet 5th is a god send on longer journeys. With the ratios, I believe you can get custom ratios. I wanted longer but think its stock. But Bob reckons they could be shorter. Fuck knows, its not like you get much of a chance to watch the speedo is it?!
My advice is dont say too much on here what your plans are when it comes to getting it resolved with this clown. Im sure he is a nice guy etc etc (and will do and say anything to get out of handing over cash) and knows it all, but I dropped my guard when I thought I was dealing with "The Gearbox Specialist" and in the long run cost me a fucking packet. Dont do what I did and try to forget these wankers, at worst he should refund you. Like Johnny says if you do chuck the box through his window, make sure it lands on his fucking head as it might knock some sense into the twat. Wish I had pursued it now as pissing me off thinking about it all again.
Your car is awesome btw, dont give up as your so close! Glad I didnt now, but I came very close to selling up lots of times as had every cunt and his dog in my ear taking the piss, in-laws-money pit blah blah yawn!!!
Not normally one to post much, but Im on gear box number three and engine number three, third time lucky as they say. As I said had some tough times with my R but they really are the mutts nuts when they work properly.
Any ways, good luck with it all.
Lastly for the record, Bobs bloke up the road from him built my box and its still sweet as fuck.
Now that didnt take long and please excuse my language lol

Bob, could up you please PM the contact that did your rebuilds?
Pete's obviously free to go anywhere he chooses for his rebuild so no problems if this goes to an experienced Gtir builder, ive only done 1 (my own) and id do the same in his shoes.
Lets face it, his lucks gotta change sometime
