I'd give it a fair crack if I ever line up against one haha

 

I dare say it would. They're nothing too special. Way over hyped.

Need to have a chat to you tomorrow too. Got an opportunity for you to make some coin and improve your arse end. ;)

Well after sometime I have my motor all back and refreshed again. Some progress will start happening again soon! IMG_20190119_130205.thumb.jpg.36138af60ccff0b79e334ab5b3e6be0c.jpg

the only changes in this build are a different cam, slightly more port work, an adjustable cam gear and a re-graphed dizzy

So I've been working on a couple of things.

First off we have the dash I've been modifying.

I have a couple of others to go into where the radio normally is.

Secondly I mounted up my ebay alloy radiator just to make sure it fits and has no leaks. I'll run it for a quick bit with this 4k untill I finish my suspension so I can still drive for a wheel alignment.

I also made up a fan shroud at work with some scrap ally sheet.20190225_194404.thumb.jpg.170068b0429a48d8f903de9b60d545c7.jpg

These came today :)

Means I can finish off my front suspension before putting the motor back.

I have some xt130 struts converted to coilovers. Unsure how well these will go as I bought them already done. May change them later down the line.

Finally got around to test fitting my new gauges :) pretty happy with how they came out! Still need to finish wiring them up.20190328_181845.thumb.jpg.81e090ccb2fb541d36e1ac7b081d7ba3.jpg

 

This is the mess behind the dash that powers the tacho and fuel gauge. All the lights work so that's a good start.

Long time between updates, not much has been done. I managed to weld up the seat mount on the floor and remount my drivers seat properly.

All my suspension is installed and sort of working, I have a bad knock from the passengers side strut area. I will investigate this when I get a chance. Other from that I have finally taken this beast for a drive! Still has the stock 4k in it but after driving it today it reminded me why I love driving this car. I can't wait to finish this now!

Once I have figured out what this knock is I'll get a wheel alignment done then it's 5k time.
