Wow what a collection of some nice cars there!
it took 3 days to sell, I'm not missing it yet
Love the RB! very clean.
Mod's - Can you pls move to 'Projects / Progress Threads' section for me
Time for an update on the GP
On collection, my drivers seat bolster was a bit shot, time for a repair
Luckily I've got a mate that works as a car upholsterer, new material from Capital Seating
It came out really well, he wrapped the foam with felt for protection
Shuv's alarm bracket as mine was completely shot
Drivers side rear caliper had also seen better days
A good excuse for new discs all round, off side rear caliper, Ds2500 front pads, braided lines & RBF600 fluid
& a Pure Motorsport rear shim kit, was a bitch to fit
Next up, new PS4 rubber, TPI black lockers & centre caps
Like a **** I picked a small part of my steering wheel, bad move, in then peeled pretty bad, so I got hold of an old wheel & dropped it to my mate
Time for a new plate
& TrackM3's old Akrapovic Evo system, it cleaned up really well in the end
This takes us to August 17
The family car
After booking it in with Mark at MRS & a 6 week wait, it was time to drop the GP off, 2 days before we flew to Gran Canaria for a week. Messages were interesting
Mark was the only person that bothered getting back to me & answering all of my questions
back to RST
It made 270/325 which I was pleased with, the donor car was a good buy, in the megane it came from with a 3" exhaust it made 275/330
Spec, R26 gearbox, 250 turbo, forged rods, Arp's, short shifter, forger actuator, recirc & intercooler, decat, 630 injectors, TTV flywheel, uprated clutch, Samco hoses, fresh fluid's & plugs, Powerflex engine mounts complete (except for the front top left), cam belt, water pump & aux kit.
1 of my springs had snapped so I opted for a set of Grams while it was at MRS
Refurb'd megane gear knob with reverse in the correct position
Front pad change, I hated the DS2500
Time to enjoy it
More to come
That's a brilliant update..no messing about..happy with the conversion?
Car looks top notch..more pics if your engine bay?
Finally an update Nick, lovely car and great to meet you mate.
Cannot wait for how this turns out
Love it to bits, money well spent
There’s a few more under bonnet changes happening very soon, I’ll get loads of pics then
Great to meet you Suj
Heading out for this year's 1st ring trip on Thursday 3rd May, incase I forget to let you know
I'll keep you posted
Stunning update. Fantastic car. That is a huge torque figure!!
Pulls really really hard
I'm taking it to the ring in august, can't wait
How’d you find the grams springs? I have them also
If I remember, you recommend them Just before I bought them
There not to bad apart from all the pot holes all over the place after all the frosts we've had & the ear ache I get when the Mrs is in the car
They'll be off & for sale soon
Great thread Nick, some brilliant cars you've had!! (and by your own admission...some not so good )
S3 daily and a Meg'd RS Clio - you've got a nice choice of 'what car to take?' every day.
How about the pbs?
