Hi, thanks. As can be seen in the picture below, Autosol Metal Polish, budget kitchen Towel and 3M Scuff/Gillo Pads.


Managed to squeeze in some more today, I’ve spent so much time now rubbing this down I’m amazed a genie hasn’t popped out the end and granted me three wishes.

It’s actually starting to look fairly good, but I’ve now run out of polish etc.

There is still more to go yet, but I’m toying with the idea of maybe going for a mirror finish on the pipes?, although I’ve spent way to much time on this already.

Anyhows, here’s how it looks as of now.

Looking back at the before pictures, it almost looks like I’ve just bought another one.

*Edit to add a before picture onto this page.

Picked up another boot lid last week, my plan is to build my own duck tail style spoiler all moulded into one piece. Im going to build it all up in sheet metal, smooth it all out and coat it then make a mould from it. Anyway, more about that as I progress.

So, made a rough template out of cardboard and then got the sheet metal out.

Then back to basics with putting some bends into it.

Then more bending to build up curve.

And now to start building up the back section.

Chopped and more bending.

This is about as far as I could go with it today as gotten fairly late to be using an angle grinder and hammering into shape out in the garage.

So this how it looks as of now, long way off yet, but more to follow.

Fantastic work on the exhaust. You can always tell the cars that are never detailed properly as the exhausts are all scabby and it takes a huge amount of effort to polish them up. I bet you hands are shot from that job! Autosol is the business though.

I understand why you’d polish the tips and at a stretch the back box if it is visible but is cleaning the pipes overkill? Will they not just look like this anyway 6 months after being installed? (Unless it is only driven in the dry or you are the type of person to put it on a ramp and clean the underside.)

Thanks, this car will be stored inside and be dry use only once I’ve had a full strip and respray, but il be leaving the paint job till last for obvious reasons. I do plan eventually stripping the whole underside, which should help explain the exhaust efforts. I’m still yet undecided about fitting it though, saying that, I guess it’s worth bolting on to see how it sounds then I think il decide.

Ps, More boot lid work update in a few minutes.

Got another hour or so in on my boot.

After some more hammering and clamping I got my mig welder out and started adding some tack and spot welds to slowly work some curves in.

Also trim more around it so it flows better with the factory designed shape of the car, ie curves with some right angles so to speak.

The lighting fairly bright in my garage so hard to really show up the bends from one angle back out on its self.

Your see from these pictures how it’s starting to flow the O.E. shape.

Here’s some more of the rear, slowly added spot welds along the bottom from the centre out to get the shut line to follow curve.

It’s hard to tell, but if you look closely you see the sh*t line match the O.E. shape.

I spot welded the top to, so now that’s all held in il be doing some more panel beating and rolling to persuade it into the shape I want then il get onto boxing in the ends and start smoothing it all out.

Anyway, here’s the rear shots to give you an idea.

Decided to test fit the Pettit/Miltek System despite the minus weather and light snow this past week.

Much to my surprise the old cat back slipped off easily, ie the rubber hangers. This I wasn’t looking forward to but them remembered when I refitted it last year I covered them in copper grease before sliding them on, result.

Bolting back up the spring bolt parts to the cat on the other hand was not as easy.

Anyhow's, after the neighbours wondering where the swear words was coming from between 7-9pm in the dark, I had it on to then I realised it had slipped my mind to order new clamps, rear gasket and bolts, darn it.

Couple of snaps for now, as no update is an update without pictures!

Ps, Just want to add, I kinda ordered something rather expensive this week for my build. You could say easily the most expensive single item upgrade to date for my build, can’t wait, till then these couple of picture will do, haha.

Finally got round to ordering fresh exhaust clamps, nuts/bolts and proper ringed gasket for the exhaust.
5D7FACB0-232D-4845-8754-FFB33EB5486A.jpeg
Bolted it all on and fired it up to see how it sounds, got a slight leak from the donut joint, but just a case of tightening it up some more.

Well what can I say, erm, I can’t drive it with this setup as it’s LOUD! Really loud.

Couple of clips, not to bad on idle, but as soon as the Revs rise it wakes the dead. Current combo in these clips are ToyoSports mani and silenced de cat with Pettit cat back.

I do have a on the go video, but won’t play every time I upload it.

More updates to follow later.

Sounds good! I am planning to fit the sports cat section (which I think was originally attached to your catback) to my Pettit in the next week or so but having heard that wondering if maybe a de-cat is the better route. :-k

If you got it from Dan, then yeah that would of been the other half of what I picked up from him.

You really can’t quite get just how loud this is or the throaty tone it puts out in those two clips. I will try get some proper clips next time I take it for a run.

Ive finally made a start on stripping down my suspension for a change over last night, I’m sure SeeJay will be pleased, lol.

Well, continuing on with the refresh upgrades slash future proofing the reliability items so to speak, I took delivery of my new oil lines yesterday.

Not much choice out there to honest as we know, I went with the Race Beat kit in the over the Mishimoto.

The Racing Beat kit cost is a bit more, but I just wanted a fit and forget kit as have seen couple people complain of a slight hiss sound with the Mish kit? Possibly just a fitting error maybe as only couple people had stated it, so who knows.

Anyway as I know the Racing Beat stuff always under goes serious R&D before they sell their products, so it just makes sense.

More parts!

I’ve been after a short shifter kit for some time, they seem to be a bit of a marmite mod around here.

Although I’ve always been a fan and like the more positive mechanical gear shift feel personally.

There has been lots of talk about weather they do or don’t damage the gear box, but that’s really more down to people using excessive force via gear slamming, but that’s all covered in another thread so il leave it at that on the subject as want to keep my build blog, a build blog.

So I got the Axial Flow shifter from Ben at Rotary Revs, and here it is.

You may of seen elsewhere, so il drop this in here, if it does break my box, then it breaks as I’m seriously considering a straight cut dog box later down the line, but I’m way off from being anywhere near that stage yet.

And again, more parts.......

Well well, can’t have a project build or a performance car without gauges can we!

I’ve built a few projects over the years you could say and this will be no different, so for any real performance car it’s a no brainier to add some proper monitoring equipment of some sort and I’ve gone with the AEM brand.

I’ve used these before and the quality is top level as well as the accuracy they give and all fitting hardware too.

So I’ve got four AEM X-Series (these are programmable with warnings should needs be.) gauges being,-

Oil Temp, usually over looked, vital to know when it’s up to proper operation temp before going crazy.
Oil Pressure, obvious reasons.
Air/Fuel Ratio, well worth while investment with these engines, will catch on straight away if Coils etc start playing up and for future planned use.

Lastly, an OBD11 gauge! Mainly for 2008 cars onwards. I went for this over a dedicated water gauge for a few reason, mainly to try keep how many gauges I have to a min. But, this reads the ecu and can show and clear fault codes as well as display any info a normal reader can, ie it will show water temp, volts, Maf reading etc etc and more, so made sense.

When I ordered my gauges I originally was only getting two being the oil temp and oil pressure, but that soon went out the window as seen above.

Anyway, I order two with the plan of getting a twin air vent pod to which I did but as above ordered another two gauges a week later, whoops.

I got a twin air vent pod in 52mm size from “Block8head”, he custom makes them to order in the USA.

It’s not perfect, but I’m fairly happy with it and price, I plan on rubbing it down and giving it the magic touch anyway.

If anyone interested in getting one? Mine for twin pod in 52mm worked out at $144 dollars including post to the uk, which at the time of order worked out at £106.54p GBP.

States around three weeks post, mine turn up today via standard Royal Mail delivery and took 28 days (4 weeks.) with no extra tax charge etc, result.

He has a Facebook page, but here a link to his web page I order’d from for anyone who interested. -

Here’s some pictures and test fit.

The fitment is spot on, clips in place nice and tight to.

Overall happy purchase.

Couple more parts pop up today, nice shinny smooth gear knob to go with my Axial Flow Short Shifter.

This is for an MX5, but the thread pattern is the same for my shifter. Not really a fan of the standard one, just don’t get on with the shape plus was rather worn out from previous owner wearing a ring. I like this one as it screw all the way down as seen in the pictures below, so helps keep my short shifter feeling like a short shifter, lol.

Also, got the Lockwood Oil Cooler and Rad vent hole grill mesh kit too. A lot of lose gravel on our rubbish uk roads from all the pot holes, plus I’m considering getting a alloy radiator possibly so made sense anyway.
