I was thinking the same thing, but mine seems to go through the revs quicker when it gets above 4k! but as you said could be subconcious. :suspect:

lol...has he still got his micra tom?
Yeah but its parked up on his drive, if you look on ebay hes breaking it down to the bone. The bad boy bonnets on there now, and the jap spec rear lights. Such a shweet motor !

Alexm - I didnt realise you was still on a provisional liscene dude, trust me when you get the car to your self, it will be good. My faviourt note is going from 1st gear to 2nd then flooring it in second all the way up to 30 (preferably whilst driving through a tunnel lol) What exhaust you got on yours then???

Update !!

Well finaly i have a little update. Iv finished making my open mouth grill. Not to sure what to say really but i have go a lot of plans to come. i guess ill just let the pictures speak for themselves.

Started off cutting out the mid section


the fiberglassed the gaps and started to fill them in..this took a while untill i got it all smooth how i wanted it


Then i primered it.


I then started doing coats of the AJ4 Red...Once that was done i applied some coats of laqure (i think iv spelt that wrong lol)



Once the laqure had finished drying, i then attached the mesh.


So this is the final product before it gets put onto the motor tommorow morning. Will get some pics up then guys. All comments welcome!

Untill tommorow!

Tom

LOL just looked through the pics, and iv noticed that i was wearing odd socks..before anyone ealse can say it ;)

Thanks for your comments guys. Yeah I'm hoping to get that sorted out next month. Hopefully I will be able to get it pulled out by a garage, not to sure if that would work...if not its down to the scrappy for me. Oh and I recently colour coded my interior, only got a few bits in there to finish off then ill get some piccys up.

Until then chaps! :)

Hey guys not much progress, but i have made quiet a few decisions.

The main one being, i am going to lay off "modifying" her for a while. Its costing me to much to insure her at the mo, so im going to wait untill renewal time, then get myself with a company like adrian flux.

So now my plans are to basicaly "restore" her. Bellow are a list of tasks that i plan to do, please feel free to suggest some things that you feel would make the car look better. Oh and 2 pics that i took today when i was bored. Car needs a MAJOR clean, but hey ho.

TO DO:
1.Repair dent in bonnet
2.Colour code bumpers
3.Colour code grab handle (possibly also colour code door handles?? oppinions would be appretiated)
4.Get the left over glue off from the bump strips
5.repair gash on rear arch
6.spray the silver paint (left over from welding at MOT) black, so it blends with the bottom of the car
7.Clean engine bay (needed badly)
8.Referbish Steelies (silver or black??)
9.Invest in some serious car cleaning gear and give the car a good polish. Paint has LOADS of swirls on it, and i want to get rid of them!!

AND IM SURE THERE IS MORE, AS I SAID BEFOR PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS.
