    Ideas for k11 Alarm System or dash cam?

    I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for some sort of alarm system for a k11? As the locks don't seem to be that jimmy proof on the micra, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a mobile type of alarm that would fit into the car, without too much hard wiring as the car is nearly eighteen...

    Nice K11, shame about the price. Who loves Ya baby?

    Yes, I agree. Just seen one like that advertised. It had only done 23 k, they wanted something like £700 but it was mint! As they say on the programme "The Apprentice", the search continues,,!

    the joy of welding

    Thats a great job, been doing that area on mine over the last few months. I am as far back as the rear valence now but its been more in patches. I am looking at doing the rear axle next in that area. Also, ordering some dynax s-50 to finish off spraying in the sills.. Alas, the joys of...

    I'm on the lookout for another k11 like you guys have bought also. There seems to be a lot being sold off at the moment. I'll probably use this one I have as a donor car then.

    K11 Misfire... Also no engine management light

    Total stab in the dark here but apart from one of those pesky gremlins that steal engine management lights out of your dash, have you thought of discounting the electrics/electronics side by connecting one of those diagnostics tools for 8 quid on ebay. I only mention it as your engine light...

    what did you do to your micra today ?

    With a small grinding wheel and wire cup/wheel brushes. They get in everywhere. Like down ends of chasiss rails and long narrow channels like the exhaust is recessed into. Around curved areas like the cups that the suspension springs fit into. Curved area/channels like this are ideal for...

    what did you do to your micra today ?

    Good thinking. Fortunately, I have been using a dremel and don't know what i would do without it!:p

    what did you do to your micra today ?

    Hoping to get another week or two of half decent weather to finish off undersealing the the bit between the rear axle and valance. Oh, how I wish i had a one of those thingermcgiggery things they use in garages to hoist your car up in the air sometimes.! I won't bore you with what a thankless...

    Fave colour?

    Not sure if this is blue, bluey green or aquamarine but this is the the best sort of metalic colour.

    Should I scrap it

    Very true, if it wasn't for people who have caught the micra bug with their dog eared determination to preserve the things, there would not be micras in museums in the future..

    Should I scrap it

    Its hard to explain but if you look down into the bottom of the sills, around 6 to 8 inches from the back you will see a little square cutout about 2 x 2 inches, next to that is a little flap of metal also about 2 x 2 inches. Get the dremel whitha a grinding wheel or saw and cut out this little...

    Should I scrap it

    Its a tough call on whether to keep this car due to this rust. Its the inner sill that you can't see in these pics that will give you problems as well unless you rustproof and ideally get the rust out. I put camera down in mine and the rust didn't look too bad. Then I cut a small hole with...

    Should I scrap it

    Pull the plastic rear quarter panels either side of the rear seat(if its a 2 door) and look down into the back of the sills to see what the damage is. If this looks good, its probably worth saving/investing time in the car if you really like the car. I have patched and rustproofed insides these...
