A few folks have told me to put some pics up of the new motor so i thought i'd whack a thread up for it.
Sold the Flamer to a lad on here abooout 3 or 4 week ago now. As soon as he'd took it i went and picked this up.
In a nut shell it's slower, older and the brakes are pants until you get used to them. But it's awesome, genuinely love it. So much more character than the Clio which is the main reason i changed. Every time i got in my Saxo it felt special. The Clio i never got that with, it was a lovely car but i just didn't click with it.
So anyway, the car:
1990 JDM Import Eunos Roadster 1.6
Less than an hour into ownership i whacked the new steering wheel on:
The next day i ordered my coilovers (VMaxx). The day after that i ordered my wheels (15x7 Rota Grid V's in bronze).
Now i know there's a lot of haters for Rota's on here and if that's your opinion then that's fine. But it's my car and i'll go with what i like
A few day's later i was tired of the s**t sounding speakers so bought some new one's:
And put a sticker on her:
I fitted my lazy eye kit at this point but no pictures!
Then i decided to get her on the ramp at my Dad's work to see how solid she isn't:
Fortunately she is solid Not a spot of rot anywhere! Very happy
Also whacked a MPH conversion in but no pics again...
Quick shot of her after a wax:
Then the progress this week...
First up, last week the gear knob came off in my hand lol. It looked like someone had the same thing happen to them so they'd bodged it back on. Instead of doing the same again i bought a Tegiwa one, proper Mazda fitment so it screws on rather than some crap grub screw or whatever:
Then the last couple of day's me and my Dad have been getting the coilovers on. 22 year old bolts do not like coming undone haha. But they're on with all new bolts in
^WD40 helped haha
It's not staying at that height. Once the Rota's are here it'll be lower but it will do for now. They are still settling, mind. It's gradually going lower itself Still got to wait for the wheels another 2 weeks
I've also got lots of other bit's for her but it's general tidying of the car ie. new indicator, new dash pieces etc.
And finally a quick pic of it with my mate's RS as i loved how tiny it looked next to it
