-0.3 is more like where you should be aiming for the front rather than 0.0 (https://wiki.seloc.org/a/Geo_Setups). I'd say you're not far away at all, but I'd get the toe settings sorted before spending much more time on it as that will have an impact too.

My front camber is more like -0.8 and rear -2.5 which is maybe on the extreme end of a road setup, but still within acceptable boundaries so doesn't tramline anywhere and tyre wear isn't too bad.

So messing about again and a few little adjustments i have now got.
PSR - 1.8
DSR - 2.0
PSF -0.3
DSF -0.8 so need a little shim here

Little update, switching the airbag light off, needed to access the ECU by going in via a 2001 vauxhall corsa b :crazy:

Gave its a fresh set of plugs a some nice golden blood, in the end went for 5/40 fully synthetic fuchs race oil.

New pads fitted up front DS2500 to replace the RC5

Went a bit OTT on ceramic coating, once i had done the wheels, calipers, bells, shocks and chassis got treated to a nice coat.

Nice to have it back on its proper wheels, PPF on the 27th and its time to give it a shackdown.
