New update, recently been having some strange problems with the car.. around last week i had my instrument dials out for a bit of painting on the plastics, when putting them back in the temp gauge needle is basically not working.. it rests basically where it does when the car is parked!

Then i found it funny that the next morning the car failed to start and flooded so we did the ECU trick and got it to start, also 4th cylinder is only reading about 6 and a quarter as apposed to 10/12 that im getting through the rest, just wondering if i had tripped something fatal somewhere??

Also i have a really annoying ''wind'' like loose noise coming from under the car.. heat shield?? exhaust rubber/bush????

:) thats all for now

..oh and it also needs a damn good clean

earth the gauge sensor (one wire) when the ignition lights are on see if the temp needle moves.

What's wrong Doug?
I dunno mate tbh, in a nutshell its not ''boring'' me, im just tired of its setup.. the suspention is gash (especially on the back) it looks as dull as a weatherd peice of brick, the engines bumping and jumping and all that crap constantly..

Maybe its telling me i just need a different setup/route to go down on a new shell

I think ive just got over the ''low and slow'' factor or am slowly but surely..

Here are some mint examples of what id love/have in mind:








Heres one of Harlen's when it looked proper raw and ready:



Just feeling a change mate is all

It's easily done.

right wheels, some harnesses and striped interior
What the man right here said!

I' haven't exactly spent a fortune on my car and it's already track-day spec. Only issue is I've got the euro look going on at the same time... stretchuuu tyres will see my laughed out of any decent track day :p

Right then! A nice meaty update for a change :)

Il start by uploading pictures and explain in stages..

Recently had my car half sort of mopped and it looks a lot nicer.







Its still preety clean looking just needs a good waxing and seal at some stage soon :)

Next was the spoiler.. :)

Managed to bond this on with Tiger seal, great stuff!





It matches with the theme ive got going on now a lot better :)

Today i sorted some much needed surface rust because of the snow/winter

This was it before i had a go..

(i had had a new sill a good while ago and only just got round to painting it again)





Started masking it all up and got hold of some primer (i used gray in the end for the first bit as that was all i had but then went to get some white primer)







Then did the sill also..











They both turned out way better than they were before, so hopefully this should protect it for a good while! :D

Lastly i did a bit of degreasing in and around the engine bay






Just need to tackle the door now in the week, will probably end up giving that a respray as its only the bottom half on where the side strips were :)

'tis all for today :D

OK then!

Give me some ideas people..

As a few of you know recently ive gave up my high on 15s sort of idea, and ideally want to go lower when ive got my minilites sorted etc,

But the main idea of this post is to start the new Panda theme! As my car is white and i only really like the 2 black and white contrasts, i need some ideas..

Getting some stickers made up soon but just a couple of subtle ones, just wanna know what you all think would look cool etc :)
 
Yea and with black super s / sr bumpers (will be hard looking though).

There is panda wheels. Have you see this wheels before?
