    A more recent photo. Went back to my old grill after having a collision with a deer. Ended up replacing a lot of the front end and unbent the chassis. Since my last update I've replaced the Schmidt wheels, as they were leaking air around the bolts where the 2 piece splits join together. But...

    Fitted a new turbo as the old one died a Smokey death. This one is brand new, bigger and water cooled. Had to do some alterations to make it fit. But drives a lot better now Sent from my SM-G920F using Micra Sports Club mobile app

    Yes I agree mate. Old jap wheels are great. But like you say they are rare and hard to come by. Especially in 14". It took me a long time to try and find a new set in the correct fitment. Sent from my SM-G920F using Micra Sports Club mobile app
