and before people say that the engine bay is dirty it wont be when it comes back the engine is coming out with the subframe to get painted, things take priority and getting the sills and the outer paint job done first was mine and getting her mot'd the engine bay can be done when the funds got back up
things i still want are
water samco hoses
alloy swirl pot
alloy breather pot
alloy radiator (needed now) or copper core undecided
oil cooler and oil stat
was thinking of this water injection system but unsure
tubuler manifold
there's shit loads more but see how the funds go first maybe not all at once pos one at a time

looking forward to seing the pics, you cant help but get carried away with these cars and spend loads of money and time on them, i spent a small fortune on mine in the last week with new interior samco hoses and full service and then drove it today for 30 min and then i spent 3 hours cleaning it so iam in the dog house again!!!!!!! lol

Nice shopping list there..   I have the Aquamist 1s kit...  to be honest i started using it and had the wrong jet fitted  (0.5) on the rolling road it was losing power with that size jet!  I didnt realise at the time what was wrong,  if you do get the kit ... you can buy the smaller 0.4 jet that you need seperately from ERL.  The smallest one in the kit is 0.5

I was planning on doing some 1/4 mile runs a while back, so was getting this in prep for running high boost... but the plans changed on what I wanted to do with the car.  For lower boost... less than 20psi.. I dont think u'll benifit from this tho.  

Anyways..  soz for the lecture..lol..   :lol:  hope this helps.

Good reading u'r update and what you have plannned... that all sounds like good stuff to me!   8)

What were the probs you mentioned you had with your white dials?

Also...  dont those blue bulbs only work on the outer guages and not the middle ones?  (I may be wrong) One thing I'd like to change is the green illuminated original clock...   would like to change that to a blue or red light?  can this be done?
Title:
Post by: smithsgtt on 09:50, Sun 15 June 2008
look on ebay for the led bulbs for the dash and look and compare it on the sizes of the ones you have fitted.
as for them lighting up the outer ones well at the mo i could not let you ive got every bulb arount 30 of them in blue some are the 501bulb like the side lights. which ive got them in blue aswell ready for after i get it mot'd ive also got 160/80w headlight bulbs with the blue tint light good for fog and snow

as for you question gtboost the guages use to stick the came with the car when i bought it ran it for 6 months and sold it . so i dont know if i really want to take the chance of them sticking on my r5 gt.  ive got a few other things iam looking at this week ive ordered 2 clear foglights to match the spotlights
looking at the oil cooler but unsure on the size and if i need the oil thermostat???
ordered the copper core radiator
iam going to do the breather cup mod to tidy the engine bay up a bit
iam trying to get a discount from sfs but need to wait before i order my hoses.
tubuler manifold a bit ott for the price but i like the write ups if read so that can wait till next month.
my partner he got a smashed evo 6 in last week i looked and thought of the calipers (BREMBO) and thought they would do mine but he said to fit them id need to go up to a set of 17" i know i want to stop but not on a 1pence piece so i think i might stay with what ive got.
ordered my front leather recliners black and blue in colour ive allready got the harness so that i dont need to order.
iam going to pop out and see my rear quater panels with the speakers to see if i like them so will keep you all updated
Title:
Post by: GTTboost on 15:24, Sun 15 June 2008
Cheers for the info on the bulbs.  I think with the Lockwood coloured dial kit ...you dont have to touch the needles when you fit them.  So you should be ok with those.  If I decide to change mine to silver... I would only choose the Lockwood kit as they look better quality imo.

 Thats a good list of bits you have lined up!   :D   The Brembo brakes would be over kill by the sounds of it. Also unless you have well over 200bhp... I dont think you'll need a tubular manifold.

 Post up some pics when you start getting bits sorted... would be good to see it taking shape.

Very nice... can tell you love your 5!  :wink:   sounds like your having fun with all these new bits going in/on!  :)

I bet that door card wasnt easy to cover!  the hard part is getting it around all curves without creasing.. quite tricky.

With the alloy rad..   I would recommend getting one...  once its on it will last forever.  I had a nightmare with buying new copper core rads and seeing them pissing themselves for no reason... apart them them being faulty?  not sure why mine were so fragile.  But the Alloy one is spot on and looks good too.. which is the most important thing after all! lol  :lol:

:lol:  :P  :D  OK the paint job has taken a while but now comes the fun part of putting johnny 5 back together, paint and bodywork was done by LLOYDS and R-HINDS of Carlisle. who paint merc's beemers vw's basically all prestige cars so the wait is worthwhile.

looking nice, i guess you didnt spray it in that actual room as it doesnt look very dust/air tight.

Once i have it fillered, sanded and de-rusted mine im hopefully going to get a total respray aswell.

What colour code white is that do you know?

I like that alot & the MR2, was the paint the new water based stuff, i know someone on RTOC was having issue's with his paint job, looked like it was shrivelling up he said....
Love the rims on the MR2...
Title:
Post by: smithsgtt on 11:53, Sat 13 September 2008
i think it was but never got told . it looks like the new audi tt white so prob yes to the water based paint.

the mr2 needs painted a few other bits and pieces like a new set of tyres or wheels its been sat in a garage for the past 2 yrs seen it and bought it the only prob is the stereo thats original only plays jap cd's

Post by: Ash-Lee on 13:50, Sat 13 September 2008
Shame about the defects with the paintwork, i hope you gave them what for! Other then that she looks nice and bright. I was worried about mine with all the rain we have had this end, even though it was baked and left to cure properly i still worried the rain on it would cause reactions because the paint was still soft but everything looks ok, just needs a damn good wash.

Are the rubber strips along the sill new? Or did you salvage them when you took them off?

If they are new where did you get them from? Mine were all discoloured and bent when they were taken off.

fitted the new heater matrix refitted the dash rewired my 3 guages so they work perfectly with the oil preasure.
also done the driver side now only thing to do is to put the mirrior glass in then thats all done for the outside exept putting the wheels on.
and put the bulbs in the number plate lights and wiring
fit the wipers
fit the bumper lights

the inside to do is

fit rear seats
finish wiring all the speakers up x6
fit stereo and subs
plumb up boost guage
fit the footwell lights
finish off the roof lining

engine bay iam still thinking on what to do here.
still waiting on the hoses ive ordered (bleed nipple ones)

there is still a few things just not decided on what i want to do yet

will get more pic up monday or tuesday
Title:
Post by: smithsgtt on 00:04, Mon 13 October 2008
done a few things on the days ive had oof cant do much during the day as the dark nights are closing in and well john's out with me everyday helping with my new job so here's the list of things done

water hoses and thermostat
front passanger fitted

finished rear seat so all now in blue and black will post pics up soon as next day off and in daylight.
just need to put in the rear harnesses.

all the front lights are fitted and working

going to make up a rear shelf in black no speakers as i think that having 6 speaker is enough so no 6x9 will be going in.

under the carpet is well insulated so nice and warm in the winter.
needing to also refit the heater controls.

refit the tweeters unknown where yet.
got ideas on getting john to build another engine to a bigger spec this time .

fit the floor lights and the blue under light for the car that will be fitted to the alarm.
there is still afew other things to be done but thats the thing with the r5's you'll never be finished you just want to make it better and better.
so thats it for now till the next time.
