Anddddd it’s on!! Sounds naughty
Met up with some mates, including SHOCK HORROR a non-kitted S13! Madness
Got the front ride height bang on… only a slight bit of rubbing
Should probably have taken a picture of the whole car for reference
Engines finished ready to start but nothing’s simple with this build I now have to change the whole interiour loom to a mk2.5 from the mk2 loom before it will work. Anyone have one lying around lol
Greddy Profec oled Boost Controller fitted and mounted.
AEM gauges fitted and wired up too. Just need to get the wideband bung welded onto the exhaust and fit the oil sandwich plate for the other 2 gauges to function properly
Washed it ready for MXOC Rally!!!
That’s twice this year I think
terrible! Though that was my first wash since Holland in August, so I can’t say much
I’ve not washed my new shell since building it. In October.
Rusty front wings
Angle grinder came out
Wire brush, bit of Hydrate80 rust converter
Bit of Dinitrol 4941 (amazing stuff by the way, not one drip!)
No more rusty wing!
RIP Combustion Punks sticker. Tried to peel it off the wing but it just fell apart. I think a white one put right on the exposed underseal will look awesome! Will do a buy.
Getting there with the completely cut down look, front bumper cut potentially coming next week, then a ducktail.
I’m looking to long last this Mx5 nd rust is the first thing imma tackle, has anyone under sealed or wax oiled under there 5, could it be driveway job or do I need ramp. Anyone done this before?
It can be done on the drive way but is way easier on a ramp. Ideally you want the wheels off and bag up the discs etc. A ramp makes it easier to get into those hard to reach areas up around the fuel tank.
Don’t forget to take your sill plates off and use cavity wax spray or similar inside the sills and also any holes in chassis rails etc if you have a compressor it can be done very cheaply , about £7 for under seal in Schultz gun style as opposed to a hand pump gun that may clog up
And it’s messy so if doing it on the drive get plenty of plastic sheeting down
Cheers for the information bud, where bouts and what do the sill plates look like
Sill plates should be under the doors (when shut) either plastic covers or stainless
