  1. As above. Fitted new belts last year without any subsequent problems, but about a month ago i noticed the AC belt missing, installed a new one and it snapped within a few days. Did the same again this weekend. I have this rubber deposit where the belt seems to be rubbing against the bracket that holds the tensioner pulley, But when inspecting the belt it does not seem to be touching at all? I inspected the tensioner pulley at is seems ok, but i will replace it if that's what causes the problem? They are installed and tensioned correctly. Any ideas what would cause this?
  2. i want these on my 350 but ofc that means i will have 2 indicators on each wing
  3. Bonnet reflection 😍 Been pretty active recently. Lots of shows and meets. Just LMK
  4. Thankyou. I didnt have any problem removing it no. I dont think that left side steering column bolt is coming out again without a fight though
  5. New steering wheel! Well custom retrim anyway Been wanting a new steering wheel for ages. After looking around decided to go with good ol trusty Royalsteeringwheels. Didnt want to lose the airbag so was the best option for me. I had mine done in: Premium leather top and Bottom Alcantara grips Orange stitching to go with my seats Contoured grips Flat bottom I love it. Looks perfect imho, just what i envisioned. It feels so premium and sporty in the hand. Very comfortable and seems to be finished to a high standard. More to come v soon
  6. Ive purchased a spoiler from Grams Styling and the service was excellent. They let me come down and fit it up to the car, gave me advise and plenty of time to think. The finish was OK, but not the best, so needed a little work. However it was much cheaper than alternatives so not unexpected. It wasn't too bad, just a bit wavy so needed filling and levelling out. Its a cosmetic part so 'quality' is gonna be down to how well the bodyshop finish and fit the spoiler. If it was a bumper or similar i would be more concerned as they can be too far out to make fit right. With aftermarket styling parts paying more doesn't guarantee better fit/finish, ive found that some 'branded' parts have pretty average fitment considering the premium. So unfortunately it can be a bit of trial and error Hope this helps
  7. So, i have a leak on the rear of the passenger side valve cover. I know what to do, but I'm just wondering what options people who have done it go with? (vq35DE) Ebay valve covers for around £55-£60 Set from somewhere like Tarmac for £250 I think Zman does a set iirc? Not going oem as they are overpriced imho Any other options?
  8. Yes I share your reservations. Will see how it goes. I appreciate the replies
  9. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/165409966825?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=3IZRYpY5TPi&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=J59O9M02Svu&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY Just wondering if anyone here has seen this or is aware of its story. I have an interested friend and I have my suspicions. Any help appreciated
  10. I dont sorry. I bought the clear reflectors but they dont seem to have them. The LED strip is taken from some Amazon switchbacks that were the right size
  11. I tried to resurrect this but not much interest. If there is i am defo interested in something like this. i Know about 3 others that would probably come too
  12. Thanks for the review. Interesting to know the little things if you have one in mind
  13. Dont suppose you have the superpro lower arm bushes for the same deal
  14. Custom with high quality pipes and silencers not an option?
  15. Look forward to feedback on these if possible? Especially as your old ones weren't terrible to start with.
  16. Quite like this pic someone (@frmotive) snapped. Not the highest quality but i like the moody look
  17. I wanted some DRLs/sequentials for my new bumper, but being a DE choices are pretty limited. So i made my own I bought some clear reflectors and split them open 'carefully' . Then i made a notch for wires to come out and inserted my own switchback LED strip: All the wiring is heat wrapped and the refelector resealed with Butyle and just a couple clamps : Spliced into side lights and indicators, tinted with some film and fitted back in: Here they are in operation Took a bit of time, but i am very happy with how they turned out. Finish is OE: More to come...
  18. Been ages since i updated. My Nismo N1 went away to be fixed. It had some severe cracks: Was all ground back and refilled with fiberglass Went with gloss black center. Pretty happy with it. Does need some compounding/polishing etc but havnt had time
  19. Sorry for the late feedback. Fits perfectly under by two 3" exhaust pipes. Well made, Bolts all line up bang on. Very happy, even more so when considering the price. Only 'negative' is you cannot retain the plastic splash trays where the rear kidneys are. Thanks again for making these. PS: will post pics soon
