The cam pulleys +WHEELS

Hi,
I think it looks OK without the cover plate and you don`t have to have it on..........
Are you getting New wheels?or maybe spraying the old ones with some of that fab paint?

Looks brilliant!

Henry.:smokin:

ps Are you able to make it to Dyno Day?I`ll bring my camera if you are.:D

HI Henry,

The wheels will stay standard until I can afford some new ones. I don`t think I`ll paint them the same colour as the car as it would look too much!! I`m going to re-fit the pully cover but it will be the same colour as the car so should look ok too. And yes I will be at the dyno day so you can take some pics :)

Hope the rest of the parts come this week or else I`ll not be happy as they have been on order for 3 weeks !!

HI guys,

The rear lights glowing are down to the flash on the camera but it does look odd :)

Been polishing the turbo pipe and done one if the HKS induction pipes and its looking well sweet. Can`t wait to finish it but tommorow I will find out when my parts are going to arrive :D Hopfully SOON.

Three words Richard

Transparent
Cam-Belt
Cover

Or would that be too "Max Power"
:D

My only excuse is that I went to see "Fast an Furious" last night

Mini Review
Good tunes
Lots of decent cars "rodding it"
Skyline not featured enough
Cool Supra
Lots of nice car bits in the shop (Greddy, Trust, NOS etc)
Go see it!

Hi Guys,

Well Decided to keep the cam cover on. Stayed on afterwork lastnight to plumb in the oil cooler etc and I`v now re-fitted the cam covers and induction piping. Theres a picture attached to this message.

I started her up for the first time in at least 3 weeks tonight and it fired up first time which is good. I`m going to re-fit the headlamps and front bumper tommorow so it should look more like a car just a shame I`m still waiting for a screen moulding and spoiler clips !!

Catch you later

Richard

Hi guys,

I`ll try and answer all the previous replies in one message :D

Alan The pipes do need a little more polishing as there alittle dusty :) and yes I plan to keep the car for a few years min.

DCD the pipes are easy if you have the gear to do it :) You could do it by hand but it would take a lot longer. I used a air sander and electric polisher to finnish it. I start with p180 sandpaper and work my way up to p1000 wet and dry !!! Takes about 30 mins a pipe!!! I may get hold of a spart set and sell them on a exhange basis if there is any intrest.

Bruce I fitted the oil cooler in the O/S/F inner wing as the instructions said too. I looked into putting it between the rad and intercooler but the rad was too big and I would have had to make a load of brackets up. I don`t think I`m going to make it on sunday as I`m waiting for bits still and Im not getting them until next week. If I`m not working on the car I may still pop down as its only 10 mins from where I live.

Seeyou
