QUALITY, love the model haha is that my bumper all wrapped up in the car :p
lmao, looks really nice anyway mate
:D

hehe yea, i forgot thats your bumper :D i am glad you got it ok ;)

nex wouldnt skyline calipers be over kill? i wouldve thought 180sx (iirc some had 4stud same as almera) would be surfice? pulsar ones can lock the wheels up never mind skyline ones that stop 10000kg over 800kgs...as soon as you tap them barkes you will be out the window lol

saying that i find the standard micra brakes fine lol, just need uparted vented and grovved discs for a tad extra bite and to vent the heat.

yea they probably are but i have some lying around that will go in the bin otherwise, and i maybe making this a high powered car,

don't forget also it has ABS so it won't lock up

yer but he has a free set of skyline calipers so i think hes just seeing if it will work.

i got some rear calipers too, they looke like oversized single pot calipers, they might fit

And the Wide Green Bug
Lovely Mate (Y) i keep seeing that green march cab about :)

i had felt that you shouldnt pre-facelft it, but after thinking about all the possible choices you can have for front bumpers (you big hoarder lol) :) ive changed my mind lol.

ok, today i stripped the car completly,

this was partly to air it out and get rid of the damp, partly because i want to know how it works and if there are any hidden problems, but mainly so i can lay down some new wiring.

i have fitted a remote boot poping solenoid, and a boot light, as well as amp wiring.

I'm glad you're stripping it to air it, cause it doesnt quite suit the stripped out racer look :p You should put up a pick of that boot trim that i got aswell.

Right i got the car slammed on 35mm springs and fitted a whiteline kit :D it drives amazingly, so much better than before. it was like a boat but now it is perfect. i think the front dampeners were not working properly.

anyway here is some pics of the work, it wasn't easy, some of the bolts had to be grinded off, which was a pain but i am glad it was all done :D

Ok so here is what i have done since my last update:

Pretty much all the work i have done has been at the back in the boot,

i converted the centre brake light to LED to match the rear lights
i installed some March G boot trim, (thanks Modded you are a legend!)
also fitted boot lights because the cabs dont have any?!
fitted a boot poping solenoid to open the boot,
fitted a switch to the arm rest from a primera as a boot switch
fitted a super swish all singing all dancing stereo
fitted a reversing camera just for the hell of it.
fitted Squarepant's number plate holder too

i will get some pics of the stereo working later :)


oh yea, the ##### didn't start again today, that crappy battery has to go! i tried to bump it and rolled it into a wall LOL just a little scuff on the bumper but still.....
