Car drives completely different now and looks awesome!

Got some things coming from Japan aswell as another road trip planned for this weekend. Will keep you updated when i receive them


#1813

Looking awesome bud, what wheel bolts did you go for? Looking buying some for mine and can’t decide which brand lol


#1814

Got them from ebay


#1815

I was looking at those cheers


#1816

Bought this


#1817

Took it to phoenix fives meet


#1818

Started trying to fit HSD dueltech coilovers.

Managed to do one of the rears, I reckon it’s gonna be difficult to put back together, the cage around the captive nut has completely rusted away on both sides.


#1819

Standard. There is a gap in the wishbone you can get a thin 17mm (IIRC) spanner up.

We’ve all been there dude! :joy::joy::joy:


#1820

Adjusted my suspension and trimmed little bit iff here and there so no more rubbing unless on full lock, managed to get a few more degrees lock before my wheels hit the body lol


#1821

Put down a deposit on my new daily. Just got to wait for UK registration to go through before I get a collection date…
Little bit excited…



#1822

Engine cover and strut brace painted
dress up bolts fitted
calipers painted


#1823

I managed to fit the coilovers ready for the peaks run last weekend. Went far too low to start with but I have raised them up a lot now.

This was before raising it:

Gonna book it in at Roddisons to get it set up properly


#1824

If your not to fussy about arch gaps being equal get them to corner weight it! I had mind done ( by Roddisons) and it transforms the way it drives. The weight transfer when turning in is much more manageable and the grip levels have seeming increased! All in all well worth it making the car and suspension work together.


#1825

Yeah, I reckon that’s what I’m gonna get them to do. I am gonna call him today and see about booking it in.

Almost everyone i’ve spoke to says it’s a really good idea


#1826

So today the awesome @Pench and @Shaz_mx5 both came over and helped to finally get Blue running healthily, so obviously I had to start putting the turbo bits on straight away


#1827

Finally got round to fitting the replacement steering wheel I bought from Japan (shame its an auto one but oh well)

Before:

After:

Nismo Gear Shifter Fitted

Carbing Cooling Panel fitted too (found out its for a Series 1 but oh well)


#1828

Mk2 is stripped down for more work engine out ready for boost :grin::grin:
