New lathe!

I finally have my new lathe. I used to have one, but that one fell and i wasnt able to repair it.
But here is my new one! Really excited about this one.

Its a Colchester Student 6".
It's pretty famous brand in the lathe world.
Its a real simpel machine, but can do everything i want to do with it.

Also have lots of extra stuff with it like a 4jaw chuck, collet chuck, steady rest etc.
Now i can finally make my own custom parts at home as far as it will work with a lathe.
Pictures of custom parts will follow soon i think :)

Little update again!

Still collecting parts for the sr20 micra.
But also welded some AN bungs on the Mishimoto radiator.
Why? Well, since the bend the silicone hose would make is way to tight.
So i thought, why not weld some bungs on and use fittings with flexible hose.
So i hope that will make it happen.

I also have made up the colour for the Speedline Maracana wheels for the daily.
It's a custom gold colour. hope it will look good on the wheels!

Also the tires have been bought for the Speedlines. Again Falken ZE914.
I also had those on the Artec L and i really liked them. Lots of grip in both wet and dry conditions.

And then, Had some fun in the daily. Problem was, brakes couldn't hold up haha!
I think i'm going to invest in some 1.6 GTI brakes from a Almera GTI or Sunny GTI or so. 

Updates on the wheels will follow soon!
Merry Xmas and a happy 2k16!

Update time!!

finally something to say again.
again on the daily. 
Got new front seats, steering wheel, tower brace and audio.
Front seats are from a Nissan Almera SR (same interior as GTI)
And the steering wheel is a genuine Royal Grip suede wheel. Feels super fine!

Then audio. 
This is the first time I have some sirious audio in a car.
It never really bothered me, but since this daily is getting better, i thought; well, why not.
So i bought 2 sets of speakers and a AMP.
Speakers in rear are Blam Relax 165RC, and in front Blam Relax 165RX with filter.
Speakers are all 2 ohm, so pretty good for the money.
AMP is a Alpine MRP-F300 4channel.

And this is the front strut brace.
nothing special, but worth mentioning. Its a OMP brand.

Wheels fitted!

Finally got them wheels fitted!
Needs some minor adjustments on the fitment.
But overall i think it looks pretty clean :)


dinsdag 25 augustus 2015

Since Dmpd '15 is coming closer, i really wanted to make the car look as good as it can be.
So we did a almost full respray.
With that, i chose to go clean.
So we did.

When that was done, we started to polish it up to make it look even better.
I also added JDM grilles and a simple front lip

It's still far from finished, but we will get there!
