    When starting your engine, it's often best to check that your oil cap is fitted. Otherwise a small amount of oil may be deposited upon your bonnet, windscreen, alternator and exhaust manifold. Brought out the soap to get some tree sap off. Very nice. Wanted to do some waxing but ran out of...

    You see all of those scratches in my boot panel? Yeah, you don't, because I went over them with touch up paint. Something that was in the boot really left a nasty mark, which is now just a slightly off-colour line. Time to fix this boot handle once and for all. The two left bolts weren't bad...

    Today I collected my GTi wheels, bonnet hinges, and also the wheel spacers. I bought a Simoniz seat/carpet cleaner. It's really good. Starting to really like Simoniz as a brand. I didn't even vacuum the boot, it seems that all dust and foliage just gets caught up in the brush, which opens up...

    Best Photos of Cassie 9th of October, 2014. I bought Cassie, my first ever car. Some time in October, 2014. Feels like a lifetime ago. Me and an old friend at college about to hit the gym, him seeing me (a diehard biker at the time) in a car for the first time. 4th of June, 2015. A friend and...

    Last Saturday, the 31st of August 2019, I finally parted ways with Cassie. I was at work all day, which is probably for the best, otherwise I'd have gotten sad. I gave her to a friend with no cost, partly because I really really needed her gone, partly because there's almost nothing of value...

    Today I greased Eddie's brakes in an attempt to kill him. It didn't work, I should have probably covered more areas than just the backs of his brake pads. Still, at least his brake squealing has stopped. We also put new smaller wheel nuts on, as his old ones (the same as what I use) weren't...

    So, I'm pushing for Cassie's removal. I guess it's good that I need it gone ASAP, otherwise I'd be feeling sad that my OG car was getting taken away. There's nothing left on the car at all that I want, except for the wheels and bonnet hinges, I've left those on so it can easily be transported...

    About time to clean up the engine swap mess. I dragged the CG10 to the back of the garage and onto a pallet. It's heavy. I decided to take the taillights that I had pre-packed out, just to display them on my shelving. And decided to start taking off some final parts from Cassie... Got a little...

    Early next morning we set off. So early that we were alone on the roads. We went and got some fuel from a 24/7 card-only station. It was a very long but somewhat uneventful ride there. Somewhere around 240 miles I think, but our trip counters differed because of our wheel radius difference...

    Right! Back in the UK. There's no time to waste! Some stuff had arrived while I was gone. The bottom two I had sent ASAP while I was away, the top one is for a later mod. The engine was pretty gross from the swap, so I cleaned it up a bit, and swapped over my new bolts for the cam cover. Looks...

    Hey. I used the CGA3 ECU. Apparently the CG10 ECU underfuels under load. You can use it though. Sent from my F8331 using Micra Sports Club mobile app

    Now for those K11 photos, because after all, this is Ryan's Micra Blog. On the road trip with the NCF friend, we spotted a heavily modified rat-style preface. Too bad I couldn't get a photo. There was this first-face at the NCF HQ. Second-face headlights, with the indicators desaturated, some...

    My holiday became a lot more complicated due to a small disaster, hence no updates until now. So, picking up from where I left off. Oh, and there will be a K11 after this post, to keep it valid. I just had to use a different post as I'm limited to 30 pictures. (I couldn't use all of them!) So...

    So are you using the right reverse light as a fog light? I'd be surprised if those are T10, that would be too small, you sure they aren't T20? My lights are. When you say the bulb goes white, do you mean the red coating comes off? Sent from my F8331 using Micra Sports Club mobile app

    Your fogs use T10 bulbs? Can I see what they're going into? Assuming it's a reflector housing with a lens, I guess the best option after a regular T10 would be one of those new COB LEDs. Not the cheapest but they're bright, work alright in a reflector usually, and can be red. I don't know if the...
