    My K11 1.0 Vibe (2002)

    Just a bit of decontaminating today alongside a stage 1 polish, with an interior clean and rubber refurbishing. Also got rid of the tar on the front wings and sills with the use of brake cleaner... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It’s been a while! Nothing has happened to the Micra but tonnes of cleaning, polishing and that’s about it! Today I finally got round to cleaning the battery terminals. Completely caked in corrosion and what have you... perhaps responsible for the car idling so slowly? Gave them a rub down...

    Finally got some admittedly awful photos of the Alpine setup... I’m slacking a little bit on my thread recently- I know! I also probably should’ve cleaned the CD changer up a little bit before fitting- oh well! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It’s awesome! I’ll make sure to put some photos up tomorrow, I just keep forgetting! It also works very nicely with my newly acquired parcel shelf... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Had a pretty productive day... fitting my Dad’s 1990s Alpine head-unit and CD changer which was taken from his BMW E30 back in the 90s. Cost around £800 back in the day... it wasn’t easy to fit though. Halfords was a bloody pain as usual. I began by disconnecting the radio unit and removing...

    The inspiration badges are pretty wicked! They’ve always reminded me of the hot wheels logo too!! Yeah I do get what mean though mate, I probably should’ve kept the Micra badge but hey ho! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I was kinda just following the trend if I’m honest... it makes the rear of the car look so much cleaner in my opinion but I do slightly regret it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hey guys! I hope you all had a great Christmas... I didn’t get too many Micra related presents but I did get a huge Silverline spanner set, a full autoglym detailers set, some other car related pieces and a whole load of non-car related bits!!! I did however get some awesome headlight protectors...

    Looking at buying my first micra

    My advice is try and get as many optional extras included as possible... so alloy wheels, metallic paint, air conditioning etc. Of course look out for rust, particularly on the underside and the sills, and mileage isn’t usually an issue with a well-maintained example but remain cautious...

    Also... my car mats were beginning to fray slightly. So I decided to go all out and use a make-shift flamethrower instead of laboriously plucking each piece out. It worked pretty well actually, more as a precaution for future fraying. Also had to use a wire brush to rid of the leftover singed...

    Gave the car a clean and a polish again today... also thought to finally say goodbye to the Vibe sticker! A great way of getting rid of glue residue is a combination of a cloth, hairdryer and elbow grease! There’s always the option to add another if I feel that I want to. The photograph of...
