  1. Cool way to take advantage of the AUTO lights.
  2. Well guys, bad news. Did you knew that the MG TF has a PCD so exclusive its the only car I've found it's 4*95,3 ? Even the seller didnt knew it (or thats what he said) and after some days arguing, he finally is returning me the money and taking the wheels back. I'm sad, because the wheels fitted but nuts loosen up really easy Fortunely, a friend had some wheels for sale, they dont have de OEM look I was searching, but they were really cheap (100€) and not that bad looking. 15x7 ET35.
  3. And cars in England are cheap comparing to here. You wouldnt buy a FN2 under 8000€ in Spain (except if its RHD imported)
  4. Finally had time to go to test wheels. I taught 2 of them had different offset because MG TF it Mid engine and has bigger tyre size in the back but the 4 wheels are 15x6 ET28. It looks really cool in the front but needs spacer in the back. Tomorrow I will make pics to show you.
  5. Todays repair: As I told some days ago, the crankshaft sensor wyre was a bit cuted and sometimes the check engine light went on, so I welded and end of my issue.
  6. Well, time to update this. This week I took the car to the shop. At first I had only the rear arms bushings to replace, but there where also other 2 from the LCA's and another one in the front. Necesary maintance, car now doesnt make "old bed" noises. After that I decided to change the OEM shifter for a K-tuned style one. Here's a pic of both. The ball from the aftermarket shifter was bigger, so I ported the frame where this one goes. And this is the result. The handling is really nice and shorter, I like it a lot On Friday I went to the scrap, there was a new EG5 and I wanted to take some goodies, but they didnt allowed me, car was reserved for owners friend. So I checked a couple of MB's and I took only a tail light because mines it was glued... but the big surprise of the day was when a friend that works on a Honda dealer called me to gave me a present. A client left a MA9 to send to scrap and he took all the parts he could for me. Really happy with this, I replaced a lot of parts damaged from others in better shape.
  7. Dont forget the bolts that tight the shifter ball... mines were rusty and got out with all the nut, ended up cutting the plastic section and using another nut and bolt. Also, there are 2 sizes of balls in the shifters. Mines had the small one and bought the big ball shifter, so I ported the hole where this goes to resize and enters perfect. Shifts perfectly
  8. I tought all d-series had the same linkage. Soon I'm going to install a short shifter, I'll tell you if I have issues
  9. If you have any doubts feel free to ask and I will try to help. I bought the screen before starting to know the exact size I wanted to design Oh, and if someone knows where I can buy a VTi-S rear lip, send me a message
  10. Thanks for your words :) Yep, I have a love-hate relationship with this car, but it cost me soo cheap to maintain, confortable and it takes me a smile when I see Im capable to fix it so easily by miself... late 90's cars are like Legos. Love them. The screen I bought is from amazon (chinese) it has good response... in some cases freezes, but I think its my fault (I have attached a 16GB pendrive full, 2500 songs... and needs time to read ) I think I havent attached a very important pic. I was planing on installing steering wheel controls, I need to research for more info (the airbag ring must be changed and the steering rack doesnt fit fn/fk wheels... I think). Anyway, I installed this to have a similar experience controling the screen. I didnt move the warning/fog/clock because it was more work modifiying... I wasnt to sure it would end up well and you only will win 4-5 cm taller, it wont be really significant.
  11. Nice one that. I feel proud of what I've done. I'm IT, not mechanic, all I know is self learned reading in forums, watching in youtube...its really satisfiying, sometimes I think I enjoy more working on cars than driving them
