Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

Cheers man ^_^ If I have time, I may have it painted and fitted before we go to the Nurburgring this year, we leave on the 18th July. It's also being wired for a shitload of retrofit parts before we go, and a full black interior swap

 

Verts are nice too, I know a few people with them. I know a guy with a 318ti 'california' too, the one with the full length canvas roof. It's lush!

It's worse than that lol, it's a z3 .....is a fat-ass though.

E46 holds a special place in my heart because our family has had one since it came off the dealership lot.

He did a complete chassis overhaul on this civic. His new 240sx isn't ready yet unfortunately.

Mostly safety and reliability upgrades from what I recall, and a hecking lot better aero.

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

*SNIP*

Lol, back in my haberdashery days I was President of my universities Society of Automotive Engineers, which for all practical purposes was the universities racing team, well as a university element we got the first dibs on anything that went to the surplus auctions. At one particular auction there were about a dozen GEM cars with dead batteries, so we snagged one with a diamond plate pickup bed and justified it to the Dean as being convenient for us to travel from our building (yes, we were the only student org on campus that had our own building) to the engineering buildings.

 

Once we got it back to the shop we pretty much instantly decided it would be way cooler with a motorcycle engine, and being an active Formula SAE team, we had those. So we pulled out an old Triumph TT600 engine and an extra Zexel differential that was sitting around. Then got lucky as fuck that it was a 4x100 hub since we had some old magnesium 13x7 wheels that were 4x100 and a pile of half worn slicks. 

 

Our school mascot was the Bison, so our SAE teams logo was, of course, a flaming Bison; which we had on our trailer, cars, and door to the shop. Someone dug out a couple extra stickers from who knows where of the flaming bison, so we put those on the doors. 

 

This thing was fucking hilarious. We bought it with the university plates till on it, so we could drive it anywhere we wanted, and park it anywhere, including sidewalks and the cops didnt bother us. But even though it didnt look like all the other Gem cars on campus, it was somehow still a sleeper, the thing was comically quick. 

 

I wish I still had the photos of it, but sadly those and most of my photos from my SAE days were lost when I was too dumb (or poor) for backups. :( I miss the old SAE days sometimes.

I painted my wheels. The picture I took was the first coat(on the right side) versus the primer. I'll include what they first looked like after I sanded them down.

Washed the Celica, dried the brakes with a quick loop around town, parked in the garage so I can commence the detailing session over the next week or so. It's the once every other year full detail which is....

clay bar everything

razor blade clean the front glass

pull each wheel one at a time and clean it inside and out fully

if needed reapply forever black the wheel liners, otherwise just wash them well

tape off all the trim

polish it with the lightest compound that'll pull out the clay bar haze and fine scratches

identify and try to correct water spot damages from the past two years

Meg no 7 'bird shit' glaze the car

bird shit glaze it again

and then decide if I'm doing car pro essence again or the black light glaze I bought, I've heard it interferes with sealants bonding though and the essence didn't when I used it before

seal the top with rejex

throw on a layer of cheap easy to work with wax as a sacrificial layer

 

then I can go back to doing waterless wipe downs with detail spray and touching up bugs and stuff as needed and re-upping with simple waxes over the rejex sealant as a sacrificial layer.

 

 

meg no 7 birdshit glaze is the secret for making single stage paint look amazing. it alone without any compounding will rejuvenate chalky single stage back into a rich color, if you let it soak into the paint a few times the compound then re-glaze it'll look as good as the day it was sprayed.

Opinions on my spark plugs? I think the electrodes are orange from a fuel additive. I guess they are fine but a little excessive carbon.

Looks like a plug about 1/2 way through it's service life. Got about 20-30K miles on it, right?
