Aha yeah Meredith, the name kind of just stuck."For a car as janky as Meredith, I'm honestly over the moon!"
Poor Meredith (Meredith?) doing you proud and you call her janky!
Well done the both of you anyway.
I can’t recommend one of those vibrating multitools enough for this.Hoping to get another week or two of half decent weather to finish off undersealing the the bit between the rear axle and valance. Oh, how I wish i had a one of those thingermcgiggery things they use in garages to hoist your car up in the air sometimes.!
I won't bore you with what a thankless task removing old rusty underseal is!
With a small grinding wheel and wire cup/wheel brushes. They get in everywhere. Like down ends of chasiss rails and long narrow channels like the exhaust is recessed into. Around curved areas like the cups that the suspension springs fit into.Dremels are great but how on earth do you remove body seal with a rotary tool?
How much was the full set Also any good?That's the new shocks and springs installed, got the running gear back to metal and sprayed satin black and the wheel wells and undercarriage cleaned and treated with hammerite kurust and sprayed with hammerite stonechip paint.. should look good at the MOT got the brake pipes sanded clean and took the Direct line years insurance for £161 not a bad day all in all
Opted for the oil as the Monroes are as good as or better than the original factory fit set, I suspect I have just removed the original from new shocks, they would have passed the mot but I felt like an upgradeMy rears are leaking so been looking for a half decent replacement. Did you go for gas or oil?
Might grab some and get some lower springs since I'll be down there.Opted for the oil as the Monroes are as good as or better than the original factory fit set, I suspect I have just removed the original from new shocks, they would have passed the mot but I felt like an upgrade
Performance wise its lovely, making it fit without rubbing or melting on a coilpack engine however.... Sucks!Ever wondered if the Grp. A airbox is worth it?
I had to test the rally car a few weeks back, and the airbox was in the middle of being fixed (slight hole in it). So I ran with no filter for a few miles that I needed to bed in the front pads. I thought at the time, the mid range and full throttle response was a bit odd. Felt all flat... Been out today with everything back as it should be and miles better, so much better instant throttle response!
sounds a dealI rescued this 97 six from the wreckers for a friend (well actually it was yesterday) just sorted out a slight miss (no 2 injector) and changed oil and oil filter and a fuel filter, fuel out of the filter was pretty grotty so that may have caused no 2 injector to block up.
Here's Spot and the micra both packing cg13des.
Price was £163 (300 aud), no rust and in pretty good condition paint faded and a little surface rust, couple of dings...
