the next day i made a start on the bodywork as it was booked in for a half re-spray, a pic of the new and old micra

once the super-s bumpers and spoiler were fitted the car went for its spray and 2 weeks later i got it back and on that day i fitted my spax coilovers and new alloys so here it is

from there on i was doing little things like, wind deflectors, window tints, bonnet lifters and raisers

so with that engine in the bin, i soon had another rebuilt with what i called it "the experiment engine", it consisted of a few internal changes, this soon melted a piston (2 days). so off the road the car went as i thought it needed a facelift and obviously another engine. work began within a week where i had the bumper cut out to let more air into the intercooler, a new bonnet, some flush bonnet pins, and another "experiment engine" this time with the cga inlet/fuel rail setup.

the car was then up and running and put back into the body shop for a part re-spray again and it come home like this!

2973667202a11544733139o.jpg


then fitted the bonnet reg plate and sprayed the inside of the headlights

2973667202a11205684238o.jpg


the latest engine failed within a week due to lack of it being setup so it was time to get serious....i eventually got my own lock-up and work started once more. engine out, stripped down had a serious thought of what to do with it (still not forged) and i got a local place called engine resource to build it for me.

this time i decided to fit a hybrid t3 to it this time, got one for free and i bought a rebuild kit for it and rebuilt it, also had the gearbox reconditioned while it was out. so with all the parts back they were soon fitted. decided to go all out so took everypart of the interior out, fitted some cobra bucket seats and sparco harnesses, a better look steering wheel, plastic windows/sunroof, toyo r888's, and little engine bay mods.

i had it on the road and after 1 day disaster struck, i ran a drunk guy over who walked out infront of my car!

only windscreen and bonnet damage occured so i soon had the windscreen fixed and got 800 miles done before the mot and tax run out at the end of december 2009. the car is now back to the lock-up where ive fitted its new bonnet and started to take off the standard inlet to swap for the cga once more. ive now bought an omex 600 ecu and the plan is to get the boot and bonnet re-sprayed and then down to paisley to have the ecu fitted and mapped.

yeah its council jim, the place where my lock-up is there are alot of old people about there. i dont make much noise or leave any mess but obviously thats not good enough. i think somebody thinks im using it to make money when im clearly not. however im not bothered and once settled into my new flat ill see how the funds are and hopefully rent a proper place that can fit 2-3 cars and that has electricity in there :)

and collision the turbo is a t04e exhaust end with t3 inlet fully rebuilt with 360 degree thrust bearing. hopefully things will go well and i can have it up and down the 1/4 again in no time!

nothing at the moment, waiting till i get back to work to earn loadsa money so i can find a more suitable place to put the car and begin work on it again. theres not alot to be done, just change inlet manifold for coilpack one, wrap the intercooler piping, respray bonnet and get the omex fitted!
