Hellou, I have'd some heating problems with the car but after the new extra water pump under the coolant tank replaced no signs of over 95 degree spotted  :y

Had one problem with the speedometer or what it is called...instrument cluster? It wasn't working then got new one and as I was about to change it... guess what, the old started to work  ::)

MOT--had to replace one right hand side front lower arm's bushing and ended up buying brand new whole arms on both sides :)

But haven't done much since last update here's some pictures as they tell more than words :)

These rocks were found over the exhaust heat shields as I was tightening the handbrake


Gas pedal not always very functional  ::)


New parts


Installation




As always good wash ;)

Helllouuu it's summer!! Love it  8) :y

Got them wheels under the car :)




One tire got a bolt in it so had to fix it with this special tool :D


Got an AUX cable finally fitted and working like a charm!  :y

15meters of cable went there :D 0.75mm
It's connected to CD-changer signal cable with a switch so I can still listen music from CD too! So now I press switch sound comes from AUX and another press it comes from CD-changer  :y

I'm going to do something to the console it doesn't show of but I want it to be more clean install.




Couple picture from inside



Thanks!

Nice looking motor. Loving the lights (what make/brand are they). The LED's really set off, I may do mine.

Thank you again for the feedback!

The lights if you mean the interior lights, they are just ebay stuff, white color.
Headlights are made of OEM xenons and from aftermarket DEPOs, bulbs regular cheap bulbs.

Hi!

Doing some maintenance on car since some small oil leakage from the camcovers, also at the same time cleaned breathers and all intake parts.
Changed powersteering oil, motor oil (almost made a oil thread :D ) but I'm going to use the best oil to me, can't say it, I heard about the post counts :D
Oil filter, air filter haven't come yet but ordered K&N from Germany  :y
Camcovers were at soda blast, painted them with 650C spray aluminium paint I like the result.
Oh those camcover gaskets are paininthearse.... got one from VX but the other was left to somewhere on the way and now I'm kind of waiting for it but ordered aftermarket one.
And that aftermarket gasket haven't came yet either so now just waiting and waiting....

Also found awfull lot of leakages from the intake parts  :o fixed them all next time taking apart need to change atleast one of the gaskets that connects the first RAM to the plastic intake part...

????What do you think, should I wait for the VX camcover gasket or put the aftermarket one in as it comes????? The other cover is in place already with the VX one.

Hello,

had to finish the maintenance project and put a afermarket gasket on place and the rubber felt completely different than the original and also a lot smaller/thicker how would you say... Ajusa was the manufacturer of the gasket. Let's see how it copes. Old ones were Topran and lasted 15k

K&N came also  8) Didn't try sounds yet as wanted to everything heat up only a little and now let it cool down little before another start(making sure gaskets and the sealant get their places)



It has some CFM values had to take picture before throwing the package away :)



Finished product picture is missing but younou enginebay just looks a bit shinier than normal  :y

Thanks,

Hello, I haven't stopped with the car :)

After 2016 autobox problems kind of needed a break from the car but eventually the interest got back up :)

Summer 2017 I changed almost every bit of cooling system radiator, thermostat, pipes, pumps and even re-wired the additional electric pumps to control them manually. After that finally heating problems got away.


As the winter was coming fast, changed bushings to rear and to front (I don't know why I got no pictures of front ones) rear bushing from pedders (fit to monaro). Front bushes were yellow strongflex straight fit.

Some rust fixes from front arch and finally new front shock absorders.


As for coming, I just got a new garage :)
