    SGR K11 - "Micra Zowski"

    Battery well and truly goosed so I got a fresh one from Eurocarparts on black friday. Gone to fit it today and it's too bloody big!!!! As I needed one today, I had to suck up the £81 from my local motor factors :censored::censored: My first track day tomorrow that I won in a competition so gave...

    SGR K11 - "Micra Zowski"

    After being sat for a few months, the battery needed a good bit of work to coax it back to life. Was on daily duties whilst waiting for the mrs new tyres to arrive for her car and didn't miss a beat. Final autotest tomorrow and if it survives that, my first track day in a couple of weeks time...

    SGR K11 - "Micra Zowski"

    Was using it daily for a week while getting the arches welded on my van and quite enjoyed it, apart from being slow. Gravel autotest today was fun. Despite 3 of us giving it a good spanking all morning, it lives to fight another day, although in need of a good clean inside and out :LOL...

    SGR K11 - "Micra Zowski"

    From factory they are bonded in yes, but as I found smashed windscreen glass when stripping the interior and the seals don't seem to be on properly, I suspect someone has had a go at putting in a 2nd hand screen and probably not done the best job. But I may just get busy with the sealant as the...

    SGR K11 - "Micra Zowski"

    Whilst moving the car today so the guys can get in to fit a new garage door, noticed that the rubber on the back windscreen has popped out slightly. This along with the broken glass now pretty much proves it has had a new screen at some point, probably fitted by someone who didn't know what they...

    SGR K11 - "Micra Zowski"

    Autotest went well. Some Handy B's went down. Might paint it over the easter weekend if the weather is good. Ordered some ditch finders to replace the cracked and oversized tyres on the bottle caps. Resisting urges to lower it as while it'd look good, it'd basically be rubbish for what it was...

    SGR K11 - "Micra Zowski"

    Have been told by a few fellow e30wheelsonak11er's that I should be fine with just a 3mm spacer as the wheels have a tapered centre to save grinding them out so for the sake of a fiver or so, will give that a go first. We've called him Micra Zowski :p

    SGR K11 - "Micra Zowski"

    57.1mm but have been advised that some small spacers to clear the spigot and save me machining them out. Tyre size I think is standard BMW 185/65/14 which is a bit too big as I do get scraping on the back over the bumps. Think I may try and go down to 165 and a lower profile but will depend on...

    SGR K11 - "Micra Zowski"

    Yep, although turns out I was misinformed about them fitting straight on. E30 centre bore is slightly smaller than micra so they need grinding out a bit. Did our first event today and had a blast. Car ran faultlessly. Results and maybe a few piccies on the way

    SGR K11 - "Micra Zowski"

    Pinched the new wiper blades off my old silver one. Look after the pennies and all that New header tank required as what looked like a tiny pin hole crumbled as soon as I touched it. Tape will have to do for tomorrow Started on the weight reduction. Guessing it's had a broken window at...

    2002 Tempest 1.0 16v 61k Power Steering - an upgrade on last time Mechanically sound but pretty tatty which as it is for autotests isn't an issue Plans are same as before, strip out the unnecessary weight and do as many events as we can. I'll put more mechanical prep in this time to...

    K11 GTR

    Made a start today on the engine swap Didn't make as much progress as I would have liked but I got plenty of helpful tips on the facebook group when I got stuck. This was just one of many things I found that show just how well looked after this donor car was :D One of my mums neighbours...
