    Camber arms look nice and tidy mate. Think I'm in need of some new Bush action.. Let us know how the poly ones feel... I've never convinced myself that they won't be too firm / crash.

    Are images uploading ok now mate? I'll have a look at the error logs when I get a chance and see what's going on. Might have been the host company carrying out server maintenance.

    Slow progress at the minute. Due to crap weather, work and the gym. More parts on the way. I hate brake lines! Don’t want to be doing them again! Ended up replacing the whole lines front to back which is a pain in the a*s. Got my mate to powder coat my front hardrace camber arms as they were looking tired. All new poly bushes on the front should tighten everything up. Anyway heres some pictures.

    Burnt sparkplug?

    Its called Corona on occasions, when a spark plug is removed, a brownish stain that looks like a sign of combustion gas flow can be seen on the insulator just above the caulked portion ofthe metal shell. This discolouration, known as Corona stain, is the result of oil particles suspended in the air adjacent to the plug becoming attached to the surface of the insulator. It does not affect spark plug performance.

    Unfortunately as of yesterday I'm gonna have to curb spending on the cars until after the year. So won't be getting the new tyres as quickly as we'd hoped. Might clean up those tyres just now so I can at least get the wheels on the car.

    thought I'd take a quick photo of the almost finished wheels (3 finished, 1 still to go into lacquer and 3 wheel caps to go into lacquer) Ignore the tyres as these are getting binned Really pleased with them, the finish looks as good as new. Hope you like! Can't wait to get new tyres and get them fitted.

    My Silver MB2 Thread

    Thanks pal and yeah I don't mind the silver and black, especially if I get the side skirts on as well it will match. Just think it looks a bit lost sometimes because it's close to the ground. Back lip just needs redoing again because the 3M tape has completely failed now.. Will try it again with some better stuff and heating it up, cleaning better etc, shame it is raining every single day at the moment. Some Underseal and rust prevention getting ordered soon, fog lights getting wired in tomorrow at the electrician's because I've given up trying to use an OEM switch myself Also ordered a spare battery tie down and original radiator clamp to scrub down and paint red. Looking for other engine bay clamps to get refurbed and/or painted too.

    Burnt sparkplug?

    Changed out my sparkplugs this afternoon and one of them looked a bit burnt on the upper (white) side. Anyone knows if this means anything? Should I be worried?
  21. Oh, and noticed you signed up on FCC, good lad! Remember to get your project thread going on there too mate
  22. I've just been doing exactly the same thing, refurbing the wheels on the mx5! I went the opposite way though, wheels are now where! Lol That purple flip is amazing mate. You must be getting quite handy with the rattle fans as it's usually difficult to get the flip from a can. Finish looks sweet and love the mirror gold H's, goes perfect with the calipers! Top job!

    And the restoration continues! Made a start on Mindy's original 5 spoke alloys last week, getting them fully sanded down, any damage removed as we went along. Finished pff with a wet and dry sand to get them super smooth. Some of the bad bits shown below. The wheels weren't too bad to be honest, considering their age. And sanded down/prepped. Also went over them with tack cloths to ensure nice clean surface for the pain. Insides of wheels also done (know you can't see this really once on the car, but my OCD makes me a fussy sod! Next, got them etch primed then into high build primer (looks like gloss in pics cos took photo just after applying paint!) Gave them 3 coats each. Then once that had dried, on with the colour of choice.......white! They were originally silver, but I love white wheels (when they're clean anyways!) and they seem to be a trade mark of my cars! Wheels look shiney, but this will dull down overnight. Then tomorrow it will be a case of on with the lacquer. The original centre cap badges were well past their best So tracked down some nice new ones.......in red to match her bodywork! Also done the centre caps in white as these were originally black.......plastic primed first, then one with the white. Much better! Again, these will be lacquered tomorrow. Really enjoying this, although forgot how much hard work it is refurbing wheels....that plus I'm not getting any younger! The fumes had a funny effect too even though I was wearing a mask. Will post pics once they are done and fitted to the car. The tyres are all being replaced with new ones as they are all odd ditch finders that are on them just now, and have signs of cracking.

    Ur welcome mate. And to b honest. I love the black and silver look . Can't waityo c more pics
  25. Yeah I just bent the rod in the drivers door, better than putting the door card back on and having it fall off straight away if you don't have any spare clips! I did pick one up from the scrappy though so something to do next time.
