All this crap with Kristian ive now decided to do my own with my friend.

So i bought a L Reg Micra Super S for £250 in red and it had 4 advisories on MOT. Sills have slight corrosion and front brake pads near side and off side were low. Thats it for £250! The paint work was shoddy and laquer had been peeling everywhere but that didnt matter as i would be respraying it anyway so i took it straight home and started to strip it bare.

I bought some samples of Paint - Mazda Green or Crysler Violet and sprayed the bonnet half and half.

I went for green though as it was much nicer so...











I painted the bumpers and center console in the Mazda Green.

Then painted inside Black with Chassis Paint


Now with the painting im not bothered what it turns out like as ill be doing it myself and proberbly outside as i dont have a unit lol but as long as its green i dont care. It cost £250 for goodness sake. As long as it goes like the wind and works perfectly then not bothered. so the paint job wont be perfect.

Then i ordered Harness's and Cobra Bucket Seats which were made to order











Ive not fitted these as i waiting for the engine to be removed, wiring removed etc. The seats will be last thing to go in.



Now i need a Doner Car and ill be using the doner car clocks not the micra ones.

The engine bay will all get welded up to strenghten it all for the new engine as i might even Turbo it at a later date.

Well I found a sr20det micra for sale on gumtree and went and saw it today and bought it. Very well built! Much better than what Kristian did for me. It's a 02 plate so it's facelift but its blooming rapid! Putting out around 250bhp. Will dyno it to confirm figures but brand new vxr Astra at side of me I floored it and left him well out of it haha his face is a great memory!

So with this project it is cancelled.

Almera is up for sale over weekend. If someone wants the almera ill sell it to you for £500. Just needs a thrust bearing!

Micra I was working on parts will be sold then shell will be used for a half a car trailer with the front end being scrapped :)

Pics to follow tomorrow

looks a proper job andy :cool: bit of a squeeze in the engine bay eh !
It looks like it came from factory that engine option! There is a bit of space at the rear of the engine bay and the front also is quite decent. It's so smooth in driving, no knocks or bangs, slow around town driving is actually good fun in a small micra and I forgot what it feels like. Even better knowing I got 250 horses on tap! :biggrin:

But this really does look and drives like its been a proper job!

Next stop is to fit the bucket seats and strip rear seats out, tint back 3 windows and new exhaust system.

Ill prob change the almera Gti front brakes for drille and groove ones off my almera before I sell it.

Nice car you´ve got there. I think it´s possible to "arrive in time" to places with this. I was just curious, is it possible to get that kind of nice engine into papers legally in UK? Here up north it´s practically impossible if there´s not somewhere in the world manufactured it for a road. Well, at least I don´t know any of these registered by Finn.
