well i have been a member here for a while now and have slowly been collecting all the bits i desired for my car


i got hold of a p75 engine complete for pennys realy
going too mix and match too get the 75 bottom end with 1108 head and inlets ( i know i should have kept it 75 and mpi'd it all )
also got hold of a 4 branch manifold which i intend on rapping too clean it up a bit


then i managed too get hold of a full punto gt set up disc's and calipers but the back calipers were scrap and couldnt get one off the disc ( crash damaged car ) a good clean and the front calipers are fine could do with some new discs found a good looking set from a guy on fleebay


http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/FIAT-PUNTO-GT...ryZ23013QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD4VQQcmdZViewItem


fancy the calipers in bright lime green yet too find the caliper paint though lol


got some oz super t style 14" with brand new tyres getting them painted matt black on 24th aug

have new bumpers front and back in garage awaiting a test fit and a coat of red stuff

have matt blacked the new block as well

today i got and trail fitted my corbaru reclining bucket seats need too make some new adaptors the sub frames are from a rover 75


will get pictures of new exaust system the next time i am in the garage



i have started too strip out the old engine but got stuck at the oil level as i can no longer find my sump plug key ( guy who dropped seats off has one for me on monday ) so that has stopped for now


i have got the interior stripped out with just the dash and a few bits remaining looking too remove a good bit of weight but still keep it fairly pratical

well till next time

I've done lime green calipers before, mix blue and yellow smooth hammerite together, if needs be add a dash of white to get it brighter(y) Doesn't appear to be affected by heat and doesn't peel providing the calipers are thoroughly clean before painting commences.

You know the bit where the little bolt was? well very gently tap this side with a hammer to start the whole sensor turning. Usually when its turned a little bit it frees up and you can then just pull it out. But be carefull as its only plastic on the bit you are tapping
