    Yin and Yang: The Black and White Super S dynamic duo

    I'm glad you enjoyed the read! Nice to know there are sympathisers with my cause haha. Rocket-ship armchairs just don't have that "edge" you get from driving a tin can. I still have no idea why I'm so drawn to Micras specifically; sometimes wish I felt as much for older Fords or Minis, could...

    Yin and Yang: The Black and White Super S dynamic duo

    F in the chat boys Nah just kidding... Although my findings are grim. Viewer discretion advised... Warm you up with a first serving of filler and paint... Okay, okay, this isn't so bad yet-.. -... Oh okay hey there. Saw you coming but never mind. Do you want to see me do a magic...

    Yin and Yang: The Black and White Super S dynamic duo

    Likewise! When meets are back on we'll have to gang up and annoy everyone aha. Unsure exactly what yet, I'd like to try take a mould of it at least. So we'll see. For now yes, as I think they'd look quite dashing on the Blue one. Although maybe a lighter shade if they go onto the white one.

    Yin and Yang: The Black and White Super S dynamic duo

    With the extended daylight hours and eeeeever so slightly warmer weather, also comes the jobs around the house I'd been putting off over winter. As much as I enjoy keeping my other half happy, it's been hard to see the weekends roll by with little progress for the Micra cause 😭 I've been loving...

    Yin and Yang: The Black and White Super S dynamic duo

    Well, been a while. Short while after my last post; living the dream in the green turd, I bought a pair of Fiesta RS Turbo Recaros on Micra rails. Fitted them up and although I'll likely redo the rails when I get round to finally putting them in the white one, they're a huge upgrade from the...

    Yin and Yang: The Black and White Super S dynamic duo

    Well well well... Been a while. Hope you're all keeping safe. Naturally with the current climate things have been quiet and stressful. The Short Story: I didn't have access nor the money to properly tackle either Super S over the last year. But I had a bit of a mad moment with a complete...

    Yin and Yang: The Black and White Super S dynamic duo

    Good news. Yesterday I drove out to pick up some original Super S alloys from Ed. 5 of them to be exact. As per British weather standards; it was tipping it down all the way there, all the way back, and for the 5 minutes we were loading the wheels in, it felt the rain and wind both turned up...

    Yin and Yang: The Black and White Super S dynamic duo

    Another thing I've been thinking about: I love pressed plates, and both my micras came with a pair on... But for the black one I really want it to look 100% stock and "pure". It's subtle, but I really want to get a plain, 90's period plate, and I found a website that offers just such a font...

    Yin and Yang: The Black and White Super S dynamic duo

    I was thinking that... 185/60's were cheaper and we're like X% over original (or w/e it was according to tyre size comparer) and my first though was: "Oh maybe my speedo will read right" I'll bare those wheels in mind for the white one possibly, really want to stay period correct, but I'm dead...

    Yin and Yang: The Black and White Super S dynamic duo

    From the one's I've seen over the 2-3 years I've been looking, this one is the best I've seen yet, hence why I jumped on it! Same time as I bought the black one, there was another black one for sale, but he wanted £500 for it looked... a tad swiss cheesy, and that was body shots so I dread to...

    Yin and Yang: The Black and White Super S dynamic duo

    Last week, where I live we, had a small monsoon, which not only flooded my work, but also Yin. I looked outside after the rain stopped to see all the windows steamed up. Sh*t! Quickly ran out, checked inside and- yup, cold dank passenger foot spa. Not the optional extra I really wanted. After...

    Yin and Yang: The Black and White Super S dynamic duo

    Hi guys, finally thought I should show my face here. I've been lurking around loads over the last 2 years or so, trying to learn as much as I can about Micras, and also have a gander at what y'all up to. Safe to say, I'm pretty excited to be here at last. This might be quite an essay, but I'm...
