  • What did you do to your cars this week ???

    Had my wheels powder coated back to silver.
    Previous owner had them done black.
    Ordered new rear discs and pads.
    Also booked my car in at DPC for front and rear subframe restoration.
    Ordered a indoor dust cover from classic car additions.

    Nothing even remotely as interesting!

    Swapped the rear fog and reverse lights for some left hand drive varients, and fiddled with the loom to make the swap work "right".

    Fitted some lhd st headlights to see how I feel about them Vs standard lights (so far so good, but they need some modification). Planned out how to make a set of drl using as much standard stuff as possible, and am currently waiting for parts.

    Failed to find the male counterparts to the Aircon pressure sensor and dryer sensor things, so had to snip the factory connectors off and crimp the necessary wires togethrr. So I can use the AC button to turn on an additional fan - which looking at all the amperage ratings of everything, I should be able to drive off what was the ac compressor 12v connector. Unfortunately it's raining and I've not had chance to put the battery back in and measure what, exactly, comes out of that connector. I'm hoping to avoid a relay and more cabling (since there is a perfectly good relay setup in the AC already), but we'll see whether what works on paper translates properly when I can get back outside and fiddle some more.

            Your car may be at a point where it needs nothing doing.

              It’s more a lack of time 😜
              One car needs a good clean and the tracktool will get a brake upgrade in the very near future.

              I've not really done anything exciting other than have my spare turbo support bracket welded ready to swap over when I fit the new carbon heatshield, I have fitted a carbon engine mount cover and another washer bottle filler neck so I have finally been able to get my auto specialist washer cap to stay on.

                          Looks very nice.
                          Im about to do this with my car, ive pulled the wheel liners out to inspect beind and it looks good, just needs a clean.
                          Im also going to remove both bumpers and have a good clean behind those areas too.
                          Then its off to demon performance for front a rear subframe restoration and a full service.
