Everleys M10 Blog

Ok so im gonna start a blog on my work on my K10 as i turn it from a standerd k10 1.0l to a matt black / green k10 :alien: Mainly focusing on looks but with a nice little bit under the hood not changeing it but upgrading it,

So heres where i am at the moment,

The guy who had it before me removed the window and didn't seal ot correctly leading to rust all the way through so i need a new tailgate

I have my 17" on here for now after a little rolling and tinkering but they were cheap of a mate so thats why there on (i didn't buy them new just for this car, im not that stupid)

More pics to come from under the bonnet and the whole car, any thoughts on what to do and any help with where to get body kits e.g bumpers etc. would be apriciated.

Arches are best done with a Hose pipe and a hard brush to get rid of the Mud etc let it dry then follow up with the wire brush, then slap on some Waxoyl by Brush or Spray. Spray is alot better because it gets into places you can't with a Brush and Brushing will leave Brush stroke marks and may not cover efficiently as the Spray but will still work ok.

It's most likely electrical, but could be the Dizzy rather than the cap. Clean/change the cap & rotor arm first and go from there

Yes, they're not white! so they'l be a illegal.. probably not that hard to do though

So long as they're only switched on off the road I can't imagine you'd have a problem, trigger happy police may pull you if they're on while driving though.

ok as promised here's some pics, first the grill there those prism leds i drilled a holes in the middle and then linked them direct to the battery via a fused wire with a green (lights up green when on) switch which i need to put in the dash.







And heres the new boot on just needs abit of filler to cover up some dents then spray it, after taking the nissan micra sticker off.




Any Comments?????

is that to cover 6x9s or just to make it black? because you can just spray them you know?

OK update,
the tints are done, and the green in-arch kits installed give the car a nice little glow, other than the new tailgate on and painter with 2 coats thats it just needs more coats and the spoiler on, all i need now is clear lac and a foah body kit, once i get a new job cos i got fired cos i told my new boss to "shut up and #### off", guess im in squaddie mode still. afew pics . . . . . . .

Who did your paint working? they need shooting I can see if was a red car because if you look at the head lights at each corner there is red. Green it would have look awesome but black eeeew no don't like matt black cars home painted

But thats just your opinion!

Love the matt black look personally! Good stuff there Everley!

Did you get the tints done or do them yourself? Only asking as im looking into getting my rears done but lack funding to get a professional job done to all!

wicked looks mean in matt black, but smaller wheels and slam it say some 15"s should do the trick :D
