  2. How are you still alive? Very pleased you are though
  3. Today
  4. Morning all, As is now normal I’ve been to busy to post, I’ve been to busy to do anything! Ended up working this Saturday but got a quiet afternoon on Sunday so took the R8 out for a spin – That was fun, decided to go and find an ice cream in the New Forrest, beautiful surroundings gorgeous weather and I got to drive my toy Meanwhile back at the Zed Shed I am back on The Bug, Still lots to do but you have to start somewhere so I started at the back with the luggage rack as this holds the rear lights which all need replacing, Not impressed with the old light holders and it was more work to modify them than to just start again so they went Gone Bit of metal Number plate for size Mark it out Cut down Cleaned up the metal as I won’t be able to get at it with the sand blaster when the new mount is welded on. Missed some pics but all together it looks like this Then onto the front grill Its hammered So I cut the old mesh out and straightened the frame Then put in a new bit of mesh Now to remove the bearings (they need replacing anyway) and hub from the rear arms before sand blasting Hmm no idea how they come out, lets assume they work like any other hub and simply apply pressure Yup that works I found this crack in one of the hubs It goes all the way through so a new one has been ordered, the fact that it is a different colour to the other one leads me to believe it was also damaged in the crash that this Bug most definitely had at some point in the past. Then I stripped the reverse box Then the suspension strip down, but they are so small my spring compressor won’t fit them Here is a stupid idea, Yes, I ratchet strapped the spring to the top of the 30 Ton press then pushed the shock down Worked though That will let me clean this up Not sure if they will be painted of re-plated yet That’s all for now Keyser - Why is Monday so far from Friday, and Friday so close to Monday?
  5. Yesterday
  6. Do you have a photo? Just a small tip. Keep an eye on the passenger door handle when you have passengers with long nails. I have a minor hair line mark on that side and dont know where it came from lol
  7. I get my BRZ touch up from a main stealer, not usually too expensive.
  8. i will try and get you some side pics on monday, sorry was out in it today and totally forgot, was enjoying myself too much in the sun. cheers
  9. Sit back for 15mins and thoroughly enjoy, bonkers stuff

    Cobra exhaust

    Looking for a cobra exhaust system if anyone is looking to sell and or wants a good condition standard one as part ex
  11. Thanks for replies good to know that it's just not me.!! Plus good to have friendly and helpful Insurance Company
  12. Hello Jay, my fuel cap button recently popped into the void behind the dash too :-( Did you manage to fix yours? Any links or tips would be apprieciated.
  13. So many cars have turbo charged engines now, but when those 5 little letters adorn the rear of a 911........you know it's something a little more special. Love how they've stamped it on the center dial too
  14. Hi have managed to put a very small chip on a Nismo door handle and i want to touch it up where is the best place for me to source some touch up for it
  15. Those are my dream seats right there lol. If you ever think of selling them Please keep me in mind lol. car looking great!!
  16. Haha cheers mate, I’ve been thinking about both bumpers skirts and front lip and diffuser,when you say bumper cut have you got any pictures?
  17. Yeah that's my old set-up, ive since swapped out the Toyosport system for a custom exhaust by Thorney Motorsport. Not don't a dB check, keep forgetting to eek
  18. Is that your car Dave? Did I ask whether you've done a decibel check? Can't remember what your 'cat back' is. Specdroid is also pretty cool to look at if on an Android device. Shows you which frequencies are dominant/louder at different rpm. Ideal for designing Helmholtz/quarter wave chambers to cancel out particular drones.
  19. If you can work out what rpm you want to optimise then you could use a specific length at the collector point. I'd say on a VQ you could optimise 6-6100rpm, as that's where there's a dip before it starts to rise in power again as long as you have the right breathing mods. Look up quarter wave resonators and you'll find the maths you need. Make sure you use one that includes differences for exhaust temp. Think typical exhaust temps are 350-400°c at that point of the pipe. The same principles apply as when designing exhaust headers, except headers have a bigger effect as they're closer to the exhaust valves. (Bigger pressure wave back to exhaust valves to suck out/in gases) Any difference while still N/A is likely to be 5bhp/5lb-ft tops at a particular rpm range. Or.... Maybe save the money.
  20. Great paintwork. I do think it need a more aggressive rear bumper with that spoiler and the single exit though.... Slippery slope because then you'll want to balance it with more aggressive front and skirts! Maybe bumper cut or tuck plus a top secret style diffuser? Then as I say to balance it out maybe a front lip/splitter combo?
  21. Yeaxh completely agree, great bang for your buck.
  22. Also, here's a couple of videos from a recent blast at Mikawa Motorland: Grip: Drift:
  23. Sorry all, it's been a while since I've posted here. Whilst I've been waiting for my engine to grenade itself (it's still working fine with its 5psi oil pressure btw), I've picked up a few things. I managed to get my mits on a beautiful set of Recaro SR3s in Le Mans confetti. TBH, I'm finding them a bit annoying, particularly on longer drives. The bolsters are a bit better, the height is basically the same as stock if not a smidge higher. I also ran my first grip day recently, whilst I was waiting for the track to open up for the drift sessions. One thing that held me back was the fear of my lugnuts breaking and sending me into one of the many nearby trees. I was running on halfords-equivalent nuts, so I bit the bullet and picked up some RAYS nuts. Also dropped the car another CM as I felt it was a bit high and installed a switch for the VDC.

    V1 wheels

    Hi everyone i have a set of nismo v1 wheels on order, the question is i want to pick out nismo that is on one of the spokes, is there a decal that i can buy specifically for this mod or would i have get something made to do this, look for to hearing somebody
  26. Ironically I feel like there's more on the market now than ever before. OEM, OEM+ and fully modified ones. Sure there's a (maybe 2?) supercharged Zs on AutoTrader atm too. Think @Payco might be onto something here.
