    Kirkynut's 2002 1.0 K11 aka - Mickey/The Sh*tbox

    6x9's ordered for the rear shelf, along with some spacers to mount them in on top of the shelf instead of in it. I've researched the wiring off of the little yellow and white plug behind the side panel in the boot and will make up a little loom from that to them as getting the original wiring...

    A couple of days ago the electric windows packed up. I'd not long converted them to electric, so I know the electrics for them well. I thought I'd got a dodgy switch but then the other night I noticed that the lights on the switch weren't on. This led me to think it could be a power or earth...

    I'm a little disappointed today as I've bought front and rear standard arb's, knowing the rear would need mounts fabbing up but expected there to be holes for the front to just bolt up to. Well no, there's none. There are 2 studs on each side that must go through into the front footwells in the...

    Hoodedreeper's K11 v3

    I just went to price up 195.45.15 ZV7's and they don't make them, which made me read your post again and both you and Paul have 195.50.15's. Was this a conscious change from the normal profile or just getting them because Paul runs them ok? If it was a conscious decision, may I ask why you...

    Hoodedreeper's K11 v3

    I missed the new wheels somehow! Looking good! I'm keen on getting mine on BC's and 15's and have been considering my wheel options. Like you I don't want stretched tyres as I drive mine hard and need the tyres to perform properly. Most of the cool Japanese wheels are 7" or 8" with far too...

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

    You have made me chuckle with this thread, which I've just read from beginning to now. There's just something about these little cars that grabs you! My Mrs has a 2.0t petrol Octavia VRS with 200 bhp, yet if it's just myself or even the 2 of us and not our 5 year old son I'd rather take my...

    I forgot to mention that my other issue of 5th gear being tricky has now gone as I've used it a bit! So I've not had to get my hands dirty lubricating the linkage, it just needed using! I have bought the Sh*tbox a present or two that are being sent to me in the post! I'll pop some pictures up...

    Just looked at parts of this blog in more detail for the first time as whilst I have been a lingerer on here for years, whilst not a member I've only seen bits and bobs. I used your index to look at the bits that interest me most, so thank you for taking the time to create that! You've done...

    Something that I've not mentioned on here, which I keep meaning to and then forgetting is that I've previously mentioned the eml coming on and giving a code for the rear lambda sensor causing an issue. I've checked the emissions data sheet from the last MOT and it's fine. Bearing in mind that...

    I've no idea where the saying came from originally, it's just an accurate description of my Micra! Progress is slow but it's getting there! Kirkynut

    Looks like a good base. It's no longer available. Did you buy it? Kirkynut

    I said photos to come so here they are: Sorry they're a bit dark but taking the photos was an afterthought, after cutting the grass and washing the Sh*tbox. So on the hottest March day ever in the UK, we enjoyed having the electric windows open during a couple of short journeys we had...

    Today I fitted the electric windows so that the Sh*tbox is a bit more usable as the warmer weather comes. I got the electric window regulators with motors, the wiring loom for the doors from the car they came from and the electric window door cards, albeit they had got damp and now dried out...

    Ah yeah, I see it now. My opticians have called me in for a check up, perhaps I need to arrange it sooner rather than later! Ta! Kirkynut

    Do you run an anti roll bar on either front or back? I can't see one on the front in your pictures and would usually search a thread but yours is 192 pages now! Many thanks Kirkynut
