Adam's Copper Red Bridgeport Evolve

Post by AdamGaltress » Wed Oct 21, 2015 10:45 pm

I've decided to shorten my Project thread so I have copied all of the main parts and rewritten it below for, hopefully, easier reading.

I bought my car off Nutty_Chappie back Summer 2014 after seeing her in his yard whilst I was looking at a PZ. She had 44,000 miles on the clock, CAT D repaired, I agreed to buy the car after the sale of my Corsa went through, only thing is that the keys for her had gone walkies..

Image

Pete, took care of that and replaced all the necessary parts but had to cut open the door in order to get in. As there aren't many copper red parts around he had to stick on a grey door, not to worry, nothing a bit of paint can't sort. Here she is the day I picked her up

Image

I got the car booked in to get the front door resprayed with blending into the wing & rear door etc

In the mean time in needed something to do, so I set about buying some autosol to take care of the exhaust tips and chrome inserts which needed a bit of TLC!

Before
Image

After
Image
Happy days, looking much better! :)

The next thing to do was the headlights, they were looking a bit fogged over so I got the meguiars refurb kit and it brought them back to life!

Before
Image

After
Image

Again I was really pleased with the result! :thumleft:

The Next thing to try and combat was the still unknown substance on the O/S mirror, the glass not heating up and moving at any speed above 30mph
Image

I pulled the glass off which was only held on by some sort of jelly substance round the cables.. one of which was missing, I managed to fish it out and plug it back on, I then stuck the glass back down with double sided tape. Result, the mirror heated up and no longer shook at high speed! :thumleft:

Image
Image
Image

Next thing to sort was the crap on the mirror, I tried all sorts to get rid of this , but whatever it is wouldn't budge and in the end getting a scalpel and sliding it across the glass removed the worst of it but the glass is damaged from whatever mysterious substance was there.

Shortly after this I dropped my car off for the door to be resprayed, it only took a day or two and it looked superb, only issue was I no longer had the B pillar trim on the door as it needed a black backing and the Evolve badge wasn't put back on.

Image

A wee bit of measuring from the other side for reference and I reapplied the badge.

I also had a ghetto decat fitted and I was excited when I found out that she spat some flames through the stock exhaust... Video proof below

[/youtubewide]

A few weeks down the line and I saw a few rare items on fleabay, a set of brand new alloy scuff plates and an evolve badge!
I was told that the original plastic scuff plates were held down with awkward double sided tape that would need removing before I put the new ones in, so I was surprised and happy to see that mine were only held in with a few clips

Image

After I removed it I got a load of double sided tape on the new one and put them in place
Image

I also found a place for the evolve badge I got hold of and decided on a place for my Japfest 2 sticker
Image
Image

Unfortunately my car began having issues with a misfire light although she didn't seem to be misfiring.
I got the plugs off and decided that they were probably past their best. I had a set of cheap coils that were given to my by Pete so I put these on for now and they got rid of the misfire light.
Image

The evening before Trax 2014 I got back from work and pulled the DA polisher out for a quick bit of wax on, wax off
Image

Looking loads better now, and does a great job of hiding the scratches too!
Image

Over the weekend at Trax I discovered that none of my towing eye points were any good, the rear one was bent upwards, presumably from an accident as the car is CAT D and the front two were very rusted! Luckily with a bit of help from Ian.M we managed to get a towing eye in a few turns on the front using a lot of WD-40 and force. Whilst at Trax Sophie managed to find a nice set of Nankang dust caps to put on my corroded alloys, these will prove to be an issue when I get to my first Car Limits day in a few months, but more on that later. Here she is at the end of Trax

Image

Not long after Trax I took my car back to Pete to get him to change all the oils and to figure out why the traction control sometimes came on during cruising on the motorway, turns out that my tires have different tread depths so it is causing the traction control to kick in. Looks like a set of new tyres will be needed soon then.

I was also having a few issues changing gears and someone recommended that I checked my engine mounts, I decided that they were probably past their best so got in on a group buy for RX8Performance mounts.

Image

RH
Image

At the end of September I went on an epic road trip round Wales with a few others from the forums thanks to James, I was shocked to see the condition on my R/N/S tyre on the inner edge so I quickly jumped on the net and bought some Vreds for next day delivery in 235/40

Image

They arrived at work so I asked to leave an hour early to get them fitted, luckily I was aloud to go! :mrgreen: luckily while she was up in the air we found a broken spring on the R/N/S. I got this replaced within a few days
Image

When I got home on the same day I found a set of grills for my car had been delivered thanks to Andy 1969, so I pulled the car round to the garage and got a load of lights set up to take the front bumper off. Getting the fog light connectors off was a bit of a pain but once I had that figured the bumper came off quite easily

Bumper off!
Image

Test fitted the bumper back on
Image

All done! :mrgreen:
Image

A few days later I refitted the number plate and painted the grilles a nice silver colour
Image

I decided I liked the colour and wanted to do the side vents and thought it'd be a good excuse to refurb the strakes too, here's the side vents painted and refitted without the strakes

Image

and off the car once I had refurbed the strakes, I made a 'deliberate mistake' when positioning the strakes on the vents, but I sorted this and got them fitted on the car. Looking loads better :thumleft:

Image

A month later BigPete dangled a Cobra exhaust in front of me, so I snapped it up and bought it! It sounded glorious and I had to go for a good drive with it, I decided to tag along to the end of the Midlands meet despite having to travel 100 miles and knowing I would arrive two hours late. I loved every minute of the drive! :lol: And when I got there the sound convinced Shedned that he needed a cobra exhaust too! :lol:

Another month later and the boss was given a toy to play with whilst waiting for a delivery on his new car. I got to have a quick play in it and managed to give him a bit of a scare =D>

Image

The next day I thought I would check out my cabin filters to see if they needed replacing. I was surprised when I opened up the little compartment and found.. well a nest and packing peanuts, that solves the mystery of packing peanuts sometimes randomly appearing in the passenger foot well, appears that a small family of mice have called this home for a while. A wonder that we couldn't smell it! :shock:

Image
Image
Image

Unfortunately it was late at night so I couldn't get any replacements so I emptied them out and gave them a good blast from the air compressor.

A few weeks later was the Midlands run that I had organised where Jim took a few awesome photos below.
Image
Image
Image

and one from the very cold morning after!
Image

Not long after I got some bonnet struts from Nutty_Chappie, the fitting for these didn't go as well as I wanted it to and I ended up just doing a bodge job, but they've held up for almost a year so I don't intend on changing it yet! :lol:
Image

A week after that I received a set of Rotary Revs D585 coils and plugs from the Rotary Revs group buy that I organised
Image

In the new year I had an issue with an intermittent grinding sound whilst breaking, a quick check of the pads and there was still some meat on all of them, but once I took the rear pads off I could see the issue, an uneven wear!
Image

Whilst I was under the car I also found that the rear ARB had snapped, I managed to get a replacement part from Nutty :thumleft:
Image

In February Sophie & I found a new place to rent with matching door and garage, unfortunately the driveway is too thin to get the car in the garage :( Lesson learned for when we look at our next place! :wink:

Image

The night before Car Limits I had an issue with my rear brakes binding, luckily I was just round the corner from home and after the brakes had stopped smoking I limped her home, gave her a couple of minutes to cool whilst getting tools and a friend out to help. We took the brakes apart, pondered on why they binded, put them back together and went for a quick drive, all seemed well which was good because it was almost 1am and I was due to leave in about 4 hours for Essex to get to North Weald. The issues didn't stop there either! Remember those nice red dust caps from Trax, they have now had a whole winter to weld themselves to the valves, which meant that I couldn't partake in the high speed bend! #-o Oh well lesson learned!

Shortly after I decided that my lovely Cobra needed a good clean so I picked up some Killer Chrome and gave the tail pipes a quick go over, looking really good now! :thumleft:

Image

Image

After having a few bits of track tasters during Trax and Car Limits I decided that I needed better tyres and a couple of track days, shortly after these bad boys arrived on the door step 8) Federal 595 RS-R

Image

I got the tyres fitted and a few weeks later gave the car a wash ready for a day at Mallory Park courtesy of Ranjan. Here she is the night before
Image

And on the day
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Oh man! What fun! That's me hooked on trackdays now!

Not much happened during the summer as I spent most days at work doing overtime, I had decided that I needed a rebuild and a few other engine mods. Although during this time I did manage to have a little incident with a bird. luckily this came out with a bit of force, as did the bird which was wedged solid under the radiator! Turned out to be a blackbird! 23 more and I'll be making a pie! :lol:

A few weeks later and this arrived thanks to phoenix11
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/m95sQ ... 40-h623-no

Again another few weeks later I found something else to do on one of my few days off in the summer, I got a bit of paint and painted the centre console trim and gear gaiter surround

Image
Image

This only kept me entertained for a while.. I was having issues with my cobra, it had a loose baffle so when another one came up I couldn't resist buying it, and when an AEM CAI in red popped up in the same week I though why the hell not, and got that too!

Image

Image

It didn't take long for me to get these bits fitted either, and I did a bit of rust treatment on the front too!
Image

Not long after I found something else to paint, only small but it's something
Image

A couple of days later I got an OMP adapter and a Stage 2 clutch for my rebuild
Image

And not long after that I got a nice set of shiny coilovers!
Image

On my next day off I got the fronts fitted
Image

And the day after the rears, she sits nice and low now 8)
Image

Whilst fitting these I thought that my Hawk HP+ Pads were wearing nicely so I got myself a set of new pads, this time Mintex 1155 from camskill, these will sit in the garage until I need them
Image

As for now, I have just dropped my car off at Rotary Revs ready for her rebuild and a few other little bits and bobs! :thumright:

The pipe had dropped a bit as the clamp was loose, but also seized! I just pushed it back up every few weeks as I knew I needed a new exhaust anyway! Was good meeting you too! :-)

Ah, I'd forgotten the Cobras has removable tips!

How're you finding the coilovers?

I was tempted by the fed's, but I only need two fronts so decided agaisnt it. (Although could have Semis on front and road tyres out back drift style :-k )

They're good, maybe a bit too low at the moment, I can go most places with her, even over speed bumps, the small plastic trim in front of the front wheels catches and she sometimes scrapes when driving on uneven roads at speed or even when there's a dip, I scraped on the way to Rotary Revs on the A1!

As for the feds they're a great tyre, although I have thrashed the rear set at car limits launched and sliding round corners :lol:

Mines the same as that!

It's a good useable height I find :wink:

is that done in the wet or dry?

That was in the dry, I was having lots of fun!

And I just wanted to clear down the original thread, thought 20 pages was way too long for how little I've done to her!

Finally got round to fixing the light up knob that I bought months ago. Turned out to be a faulty resistor, I purchased the wrong size but after a second order I got it soldered on and working in no time :thumleft:

I've got a spare set of rear lights lying round which aren't in great nick, so thought I would play round with a rear halo light which I found on the US site. If I were to do this I would use a slightly bigger ring for the lights so that it is on the outer edge of the reflector.

It was quite a process as the lense isn't glued and won't come off so I had to use the dremel to cut it off, not sure how well it would seal up. Only one way to find out..

Thanks Nigel, these ones will be going to a fellow member from the forums. I've already got a few more halo rings on order so I can produce some more :)

The rear lights are a little trickier as the lense is bonded on so has to be cut off. I'm still playing around with it at the moment as I'm not sure how well the lense can be resealed or if the cut will be easily seen on the car. But I will be sure to post updates about it as it develops.

As for the headlights, I've got another member coming round tomorrow to have these lights fitted to his car, I want to make sure that everything goes well with fitting and get a few pictures. Then I will start up a for sale thread :thumleft:
