  1. Had a little giggle on instagram, telling people I had discovered a massive rusthole and was dissassembling the car and parting it out. Sad story bla bla bla, Let this go for sometime.. many people were concerned but in reality, I was taking off all the parts in preparation for something BIG. Unfortunately, I can't tell you lovely forum crawlers yet, but I'm so excited to show you when it's finished! these are some of the reactions, lots of ppl cared and wanted to help out, which was very heartwarming. In reality, this is what the car looks like right now. Hopefully dropping her off next wednesday, I'm so excited :)
  2. Today I figured I'd have a go at dent removal, some dents in my door were really bothering me, and considering I want to have the car wrapped at some point, it would be nice to get all the dents out first. A friend of mine was kind enough to let me borrow his kit for a few days. Hoping to purchase my own kit soon as well cause I need to practice more. The dents arent removed completely, but there is a definite improvement! Me and a fellow MB driver here in the Netherlands have started organising our own MA, MB, MC meetings. Sadly not a lot of people could come because of other plans or car related issues. But there were some, (of course the M series arent very common in The Netherlands) a lot of people elsewhere were also interested. So we hope to see more people next time! Also, here are some pictures of the meeting we went to last night, it's nice to have this car out and about again, really enjoy all the confused faces and thumbs up ;)
  3. Now for another serious issue, I had a fairly large rust hole starting to get bigger in my left rear fender. I wanted to have this done by a professional next winter, wanting to enjoy the car this summer as much as I could. But, since I have a welding machine at my disposal, and a day off, I decided to try and do it myself! I started by cutting around the rust hole. Making sure I take everything out Once all the metal was removed, I grinded and sanded everything clean till there was no more rust to be seen. Got around to making the metal plate that fits in there. This was harder than expected since there where some complicated bends and shapes to reproduce. A few hours later i got a plate that fit almost perfectly. Just had to make some small adjustments and got to welding things together! Ground the excess welding off to make everything nice and flush The welds werent pretty, but the penetration was good and I only had one little pinhole left when I was done with welding and grinding. Sealed everything off with tectyl, managed to get on the inside of the chassis as well with some cavity wax and a tube, through a small drainage hole. It still looks a bit weird in the pictures, but a few layers of sealant later it looked quite nice, and will probably hold up for a good couple of years. Saves me 300 euros at the welder :)
  4. Recently had alignment done, she drives okay now! Quite stiff but I'm getting used to it. Roads are good here so its not too much of a hassle. Also found a new honda friend who really liked the aerodeck and wants one for himself now ;) Spoiler is on, paint is bad but it looks alright for now. Want to have it paint matched someday but first we'll need some more coin for that. Also swapped out the old angel eyes for new ones. Lots brighter now dont have any good pictures available right now but I'll make some later!
  5. Started with a little experiments a few months ago, just something to keep me busy in between jobs etc. Started out with an extra stock lid that goes on top of the trunk. Added a piece of plastic to lengthen it, melted it to shape and filled it with expanding foam This was still super experimental, started to cut the foam to shape but to start over since I wasnt satisfied with the basic shape. Also the third brake light position wasnt much to my liking. So back to the drawing board! Felt it was too short to, so I extended it using a Citroen C3 rear wing thingy. This was long enough, so I was off to shaping and smoothing filled everything up, fill, sand, repeat. sprayed some primer on it, more sanding. Tried to use lines to get it as closely symmetrical as I could. Now I needed to fill in the underside too, I've kept the third brake light in its original location. Used foam and glassfibre to create a strong base. Again, loads of sanding and filling to get everything nice and smooth. Almost there! Have to figure out a way to shape the surrounding filler to fit the third brakelight nicely.
  6. almost done, last step is getting everything aligned!
  7. Getting to the point where I can say that the car is "finished". I'm working on to get her as flush as possible, which was the initial idea when I got the new borbet wheels. The rear is close to perfection, but the front needs dropforks since my coilovers are maxed out. Waiting on those and hope to install soon. Here's how she sits right now
  8. Thanks! The brace hooks up to the mounting points for the dog guard. There are two holes behind the two plastic caps in the roof trim, it just bolts into that ;)
  9. Hi guys, sorry for being away for a while, Hinata is still driving and passed MOT just a few days ago, about to put everything back together. I want to go about an inch lower, but first I'll have to reweld some pieces of the exhaust since it's hanging quite low and is pressing on the bottom of the chassis, once thats done I'll finally get to my desired fitment and the car will be "finished" The new motor is still running like a champ, I did have to install a new starter after many years of duty. Makes a lot more lively noise now ;) Also working on custom roof ducktail spoiler, first time trying something like this so lots to learn! Also got some cool new mods for the engine bay, and an upgraded strutbar in the trunk
  10. Had some pictures taken last week, she's getting so close to how I want her to be. Fitted this really cool crossbar strut in the back, more form than function but hey it looks alright. Also got some new engine bay goodies that I'll show off soon!
  11. Been away for a long time again, a lot happened and more money has been spent on her than I'd be comfortable with, but noy oh boy does she look and drive the part again. New engine, new wheels, new clutch, removed some things, added some things. Too much to write down. Very happy with how she turned out. And dare I say it; she's almost finished. You ever hear that? A finished project car? What a journey it has been these past 3 years of owner ship. So grateful
  12. Thank you all! this my first time I've won car of the month, quite an honour
  13. Hi, yesterday I was fiddling with my rear indicators. Started testing them on the hazard lights, they shortcircuited and I blew the fuse. Being the lazy bell end I am, i didnt replace the fuse immediatly and figured I'd continue testing on the turn signals. Of course, i shorted them again. Replaced the hazard light fuse under the hood and the hazards work again but no turn signals. Now tried replacing the relay in the under-dash fusebox but it didn't work. Kinda lost now, anyone know if there is a different fuse that I don't know of or some module that needs replacing? Please help. Need to get her working again by the end of this weekend!
  14. Got them of, being careful to remove the covers on rear and front. Requires a little patience but by prying them upwards with a screwdriver they came off. Only broke 1. Under the covers are torx screws that came off relatively easy. No hassle
