Post an up-to-date picture of your K10!

Here are few pics of my Micra with it's new (but legendary looking) Mangels rims. I also tried the front body panels on (not fitted with bolts, just tried them on) and here's how it will probably look when it's finished:

Old front springs are nearly dead and that's why the front of the car is so low. It will have maybe 1,5 to 2 inch lift in the front with decent springs :p
I'm also thinking about painting those rims black and put chromed rim frames on them.
Don't know yet what I'm going to do but time will show what's going to happen...

Yes, it's so big that it won't fit otherwise...
Here's one pic without those front panels etc. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v97/TeeKoo/tallissa.jpg

As I said before, I just tried those front body panels on. There were some front bumber light wires between that thing were the bonnet is attached. It won't be lifted on final assembly :)

Got an induction kit and oil breather (not in pic)
I took the cover off the cone because the superturbo bonnet will supply cold air directly to it. It sounds amazing!
Sorry about the quality of my pic, i took it on my fone...

it is illegal for the wheels to stick out further than the arches now, so iyou wiont have a chance of doing it and it being road legal


ACTUALLY i have recently been informed that it is legal for the wheels to stick out past the arches, so long as the treads of the tires are covered by the arch :D stretched tires here we come!
 
Few pics now when my car is almost finished, it needs only some minor things but here's how it looks:

looking good mate,

i'm curious to know how u did the back engine mount?

your engine is sitting a fair bit back, and the other thing is have u got custom shafts??

i can see the wiring HeHeHE:)
not sure about FMIC position, you may hit something!

is it running OK?
drive alrite?
any engine vibrations inside the car?

I lifted the engine in it's place and put the rear mount where it just "went". Then I welded the mount a little bit, lifted the engine out and welded the whole mount around. Hopefully you understood what I meant, it's hard to explain in finnish, but even harder to explain it in english...

Super S 1.5T said:

Left shaft is custom made (actually, I got it today at 4pm). I positioned the engine and gearbox so that I could use Sunny's right side shaft. Here in Finland law is against welded shafts so that's why had to have it custom made.

Super S 1.5T said:

I'm going to build protection frames from metal to it. Here gravel roads are common so I preferably weld and repair the protection frames than buy a new intercooler and open the engine to remove all the aluminium that got into it...

It's running fine without any problems :) There aren't much vibes from the engine to the body of the car. Actually I think that it vibrated more with MA10.
Today was the first day when I tested it on tarmac and I noticed that 175 wide tires are not enough to handle the power. I was using 0,5 bar (or do you use psi there? -> 7psi) boost pressure now and I don't want to break it because it isn't yet much driven. When I've driven it a little bit I'll raise the boost somewhere like 1,0 bars (14,5psi). My dad was also with me when I tested it on bike path which is something like 150 meters (150 yards?) long or so. When I first accelerated from idle to 5000rpm with first gear (and wheelspin :devil: ) my dad was speechless, he didn't udder a word. I turned the car around and I wanted to test it also on second gear. I started from car moving at second gear on idle and then floored it. 0,5 bars came nearly instantly and it accelerated quite well. There's a highway besides tha bike path where I tested it and the speed limit of the highway is 50mph (actually 80km/h, but it's the same). When I did this second test with second gear I noticed that after some accelerating I was outrunning the car that was driving along the highway :laugh: I think that it accelerated pretty fast according that I only had 150 meters of tarmac, I drove little bit of it on idle, I still had time to brake before the bike path ended and my dad weights 105kg... After doing this second test my dad finally said something. first he said quietly in finnish "hui jumalauta..." which is something like "goddammit.." said scary in english and was little time quiet, then he said loudly "VOI JUMALAUTA!!" which can again be translated as GODDAMMIT!!! but now he shouted it :laugh: I didn't think that the accelration was so "awesome" but maybe it is because I was driving the car and consentrating on the boost gauge and fuel/air ratio meter.

By the way, Umar, how did you arrange the "brake effector" (that thing that gives you more braking power with underpressure of the engine) hose? Did you put something there that won'tlet the positive boost pressure go to the "effector"?


Edit: Actually, the bike bath wasn't 150 meters long, I misscalculated it. I thought that the distance between lightpoles was 50 meters, but the distance is actually 25 meters, so the bike bath was only 75 meters long...

I used to have those arches on my old red K10. bought them off some lad but me and Tommo found a k10 in a scrapyard in cannock with that exact kit on it. so it does exist here in the UK somewhere.

Arnold,

Did you buy the bumpers that colour? Did you respray your whole car to get it to match?


Cheers

Both bumpers i bought from salvage / second hand and had to be resprayed :). I've also had the lower half of my car resprayed, including the side skirts.

Arnold,

Im thinking of respaying mine soon but i would like to get something other than standard. what model are yours from, thay seem to have a more aggresive.

I'v found a 1.0 super in my local scrappy so a few bit have gone on my LS, spoiler being one of them. lovely jubly

Any advice on spraying? Im not o bad on smaller item but a little unsure on bigger things.


Cheers

All my stuff except the spoilers have come off a Super S! I know alot of people arent keen on the spoilers but i personally think they're one of the best features of the car now (along with the alloys). They make the back look alot less fat and a bit more interesting.

Anyway with regards to spraying, i didnt do them myself, however there's been alot of threads in the past on here regarding spraying and spraying techniques. Have a search for some useful info!
