After an embarrassing number of attempts, the coolant leak has been at the very least brought under control. Doesn’t appear to be leaking from the rear any more, at least not by a noticeable amount. I am noticing steam coming from the radiator though. It’s a bit wet on the top pipe where it connects to the radiator but the steam isn’t necessarily coming from there. I’ll keep an eye on that one, I’ve drained the coolant more times than I care to remember over the last week!
Next up, brakes I think. Investigating Performance Friction z-rated pads, probably with OEM discs.
