you should drill the holes in the sills then use plastic lugs in the holes for the screws to go into, as long as you treat the holes you drill with some rust prevention stuff you wont have any problems ;)
Yeah i dont think you did that on mine :p

Curtis, that's how the super s kit is fitted as standard so there shouldn't be any problems with it

ok so the alloys don't really fit on the back........soooooo

I'm getting two other rear hubs and moddifying them....this is due to the center of the alloys not fitting over the hub on the micra because the hubs are to big....not even the spigot rings that halfords gave me fit into the alloys center.....

i'll get them machined down at work and then they'll fit a treat! lol

:D nice job mate, the sound should be wicked with the K&N on as well. shame the weather was so bad when you came down! i put the 4-2-1 on the k10 yesterday and its crazy fast now wont grip in 2nd gear very well :p

putting the 4-2-1 i sold you on yours should make a vast improvement!

i use some foam spray stuff you can get from motorworld spray it on wipe clean with a damp sponge hoover and leave to dry, most upolstry stuff works well.

you got any stain like oil etc? or just general grime?

s'pose thats the best way

I bought a minging old seat out of a scrapper and it came up a treat with the turtlewax foam stuff (green can with yellow brush on top) from halfords

only trouble is i've left it in my dining room cos i cant be arsed weighing up fitting it, and the cat now has a new bed :(

One for speedle really, but for other as well:

On the standard carb with the K&N the sound was amazing....really loud for a standard exhaust.

But now with the 1.3 carb and K&N its quite standard sounding?!? :down:
 

Speedle

Ex. Club Member
really? i always thought it was quiet loud but then im getting old and i like peace and quiet :p no idea why it wouldnt be as loud mate... its a bigger carb so in theory it should be noiser....

its puzzled me too!

i used to be able to do this thing when my old carb was on:

Rev really high
turn off ignition
floor the accelerator
and a big waoaarmmmmm would happen....really loud
then maybe a slight back fire


Now Nothing happens? :sleepy:

I wouldnt do things like that if i were u, I used to backfire my land-rover (turn off ignition and back on) and it ended up blowing my back-box apart. If can also bend your valves!
