on the drivers side seat belt I put the thumb screw here to lock against the ratchet wheel rather than pushing the inertia ratchet finger and this works really well in locking & holding the belts position.
access is abit tight with it being very close to the seat mechanism but reachable. I...
Yes I did originally fit the temporary machined bush with o rings but as u seen it still got moist and rusted.
Didn't put any seals on 2nd time cos I shortly after made the needle bearing version [emoji4]

when going to trackdays, I would engage the seat belts inertia locking ratchet, using a food bag clip to hold the belt locked and then put my seat belt on tightly.
it's often a fiddly task so I wondered if I could mod the unit to lock itself with a button or dial
inside the white cover is the...
started going back to work this week as a delivery driver since it's getting busy in the shop.
parking her outside in the baking hot sun, I returned to find the spray adhesive doesn't hold well in the heat and peels off :rolleyes:
just ripped it off for now
Time to replace the old, rusty, leaky flanged steel de-cat with a stainless V-band decat
removed the exhaust
chopped the old flanges off
welded on the stainless V-bands
an annoying issue is that there's a huge misalignment between the down pipe and the mid pipe.
it was a sweaty day...
ordered some Kenwood KFC-E1765 on monday and it arrived today thursday unfortunately they sent the wrong one! :mad:
they sent me the KFC-S1766 which is less sensitive at 89db/w and less range at 35-22000hz
everything else is the same spec and price and nicer looking.
I could've contacted & sent...
machined & welded the larger bearing tube onto a spare gear stick and whacked the ball joint further up to make it a short shifter
the finished U-joint casing
press fitted the needle bearings
drilled & tapped the holes to an M12
the bolt is slightly 5mm too short for the...
Designed a new gear selector joint using a pair of 15x21x14mm needle roller bearings.
The needle bearings (purple) allow the (yellow) joint to rotate freely and maintains a precise tight alignment against the (green) inner 15mm bushing but also allows the (yellow) joint to slide along the axis...
Reading a few 'choosing speaker with amp' guides, they generally say:
pick a speaker with rated/nominal input RMS power close to the amps continuous RMS output,
peak maximum power ain't as important,
high sensitivity speakers for low RMS amp,
low sensitivity for high RMS amps.
Looking at the...
was curious to see if replacing the gear stick rubber mount with a solid one would help reduce movement?
I made this solid bracket
bolted it up.
hmm yeah that was a mistake lol 😄 it transmits soo much noise (clunking & whining of the gearbox and the engine firing) to the chassis like a...
thought the rear speakers been getting quieter and less bass, turns out the rear left speaker stopped working 🙄
anyone know the specs of these? I heared they're just 30W rms
chopped it apart to find the fault
going +ve to -ve, the 4ohm wires are coiled 40 times counter-clockwise
was a lovely day for a drive & few photos :cool:
ever since this local small tyre&exhaust shop had fitted my new tyres badly in January
(dots didn't align to the valve, tyre bead didn't follow wheel rim, balanced it wrong, stacked 3-4 layers of weights at one point)
the valves have been...
