Wow cars looking pretty awesome still, that resprays definitely come out well!

AFAIK the manifold is completely custom so you'd have to get another one made up, but it does make a very noticeable...
Wow! First time on the board in 4 years and can't believe my old Micra is still on the roads! It must have been passed around half of the members on here by now as well as my owning it twice. Pretty awesome :D
Well I'm the previous owner before the previous owner and it went through MOT in 2008 with nothing wrong at all, but its done 30,000 in the mean time to I guess its all added up.
The garage has quoted me for all the work at £400 plus vat, but they're a good garage on price so elsewhere may cost...
Ok, don't have any pictures of rust as I don't know what to look for.. but:
The full list:
- Near side (sill) seat belt anchorage area is excessively corroded
- off side (sill) seat belt anchorage area is excessively corroded
- Wiper bottle leaks
- Offside front track rod end and ball...
It won't be to high, I'd love to get it done, but I'm currently rebuilding a motorbike and completely stripping and rebuilding a small yacht, I don't have room for the projects I've got, let alone another one... Should get back to you within a couple of hours.
Well I took the Super S in for its MOT yesterday and its not good news:
- Tons of Welding
- New track rod end
- New tire (cut through to ply in existing one)
- New ball joint
- New wheel bearing
- New washer bottle or repair existing one.
- Exhaust bracket needs welding
Sounds like your making good progress!
Even so, you shouldn't be suprised at the speed difference... I imagine the mini is lighter than the K10, plus a B16A is 150hp, compared to the GA16's 103hp...
Take it out and put a VTEC in :D
