  1. Well done there mate, thanks for sharing! Adios! :)
  2. Hi mates i installed the rear sway bar but i want to confirm how are the droplinks installed i show pictures of the bar installed but not sure if its done properly. Is it the flat side of the droplinks facing the front of the car? @dr_broon
  3. Congrats mate your mods do look Smart, i like the work you have done so far you have good eye and even better "oily thumb"...i just made up this expression to call for a natural mechanich born from pure entusiasm. Love it, keep it coming mate.
  4. The colour is mesmorasing... I think the colours for Many of these Cars are top notch... pearls and metallized are just beautiful. Nice rims and awsome job on the engine bay, the One pipe looks shiny i bet it takes lots of cursing and back pain to put them looking like that again lol. cheers
  5. Hi folks, i painted my rims chamaleon mainly Cooper gold, but has some green too, i think the photos dont make them justice in person they really pop... Im in love with this color lol. Also carbon wraped the door interior Trim i think its looks ok. I painted the rims and hold myself from buying new ones has the Money might be need for something else more important, for instance the heater Core matrix...a bummer, lol.
  6. if i was sure the rover ones worked that was more easy but i am not sure just eyeballing so i might have to forget it... wich is ok till the winter then will be urgent...mmmm mb il, try and solder it when i take it out, will see what i can arrange till then lol This is my bypass...as promissed might Sparkle someone criativity lol
  7. hi do you ever seen the heater core matrix? i found this on ebay i believe its the same but im eyballing from mine that i only see partially but it looks the same form just want to ask for anyone who has seen one. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fits-1996-1998-Honda-Civic-Heater-Core-APDI-47694RC-1997-Heater-Core/292748067866?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20201210111314%26meid%3D49f80047781f4a1f9cd3085a71594b1d%26pid%3D101195%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dco%26sd%3D392401386386%26itm%3D292748067866%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DSimplAMLv9Pair
  8. Hi there, i made a bypass using the tubes from the car had to cut One just to put the valve functional.the pipe that comes from the side of the motor is connected to valve has normal and after the valve the tubes go directly to the back of the engine where the return from the heater Core was connected... The car functions has normal, There Will be no problems using this in the long Run? I dont see that pipe you show for bypass on mine... Thanks man allways helping... I Will post photos of my repair i made for you to see what i mean. Cheers
  9. hi folks hi wanted to ask if anyone knows where can i buy the heater core for my mb3, i searched on ebay but unfortnetly i cant put mb models in vechile only appear americans ej ek, so immnot sure if they fit or not, and maybe there is somewhere in europe where i can order one new for under 50€ as seen on ebay for ej ek models. thanks im advance
  10. I think its allways good to check for Passenger footwell and remove the sill to check if its wet on the underside of the carpet, cause as some of us know the heater Core in this cars tend to fail and if the puncture is small you only notice if the carpet is lifted and see if it looks wet. I find out i had litres of radiador fluid on the foam the carpet has on the back Hope this helps
  11. Thanks a bunch dr broon for taking some time on making this photos...stellar ! On a side note, what shift knob is that mate? And your Trim looks like stealth... Is it water Paint transfer graphics?
  12. thank god nothing happened to you, that is awfull, you can't have a break pff cheers pal
  13. hi, i tried but seems its going to break before it pops, i tried to lift from the front of the boot shift trim, is this how it is done right? thanks
  14. wow that was a eye opener... for sure. Are the tyres that much expensive from the 175x65r14? I dint know if our cars can have 205 but i read somewhere that from stock the vti had max. 195, height wise 55 probably will rub when i turn is that it? found also this ones from a mini clubman half the price of the rover ones, they look ok, tell me what you think works best visually if you might, and if this ones will fit asswell. i will be painting them chamaleon i have here some copper gold look spray cans, will see... thanks
