Hi guys, i thought its about time for me to start a thread. I'm a bit all over the place with everything so i didnt really have time to be updating the forum thread.

background - got the R as a non runner in end of oct 2013. Engine not starting, bent clutch fork, floppy clutch pedal, very rough paint and clear coat.


PICS OF THE CAR THE DAY AFTER I GOT IT -

- ENGINE NOT RUNNING

You can see all sorts of greenery growing on the car. The pictures dont really show how bad the car was because it was raining. It looked very sorry and it hasnt been on the road since 2007/8. My first job was to get the engine to run. Previous owner said to me that he suspects that the immobiliser is being the problem but i soon found out that it works fine ( i red through the alarm manual). I did all the procedure to disable the immobiliser and found out that the pump was working and fuel was in the rail. So i obviously tried to fire it up. It turned out that the coil cables were soaked in water. After drying the cables and changing the sparks i tried to start it again and no luck. So i drained the old fuel and the car started, it was running on two cylinders at the beginning, after adding injector cleaner it started just fine!!! Smile


- CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER

The clutch pedal was floppy. No pressure in it at all. I tried to bleed it many times but no luck. The weird thing was that the master was changed right before the car went off the road so i didnt suspect it to be the faulty part. I started looking for leaks etc but there wasnt anything. I've checked the slave and after this i came to the conclusion that its the master. After a lot of hassle with getting the intake out i managed to get my hands on the master cylinder. It turned out that one of the seal was really stiff and it didnt actually seal the cylinder. I managed to fix this and after reassembling everything together and bleeding the clutch it had pressure in it and it worked fine! :)another win!


- INTERIOR AND WIRING

After doing some dirty jobs outside i wanted to check the interior wiring and refurb the seats. I was worried about wiring after removing the radio because the previous owner used loads of tape and dodgy soldering. Many things didnt work as well. No lighter, no horn, old amp wiring to remove etc. I've completely rewired the radio and speakers, good soldering and heatshrink this time. I had a major problem with water entering the passenger footwell, because of amp wiring the previous owner removed the rubber plug that goes just about all the petrol lines. Thank god i found a nissan sunny at a scrap yard so i got hold of the plug that was meant to be there ( also picked up a nice uncut parcel shelf and boot struts) I've removed about 2kg of old unplugged & unused wiring (y).

After this i refurbed my Recaro SRD's. The suade was leather like due to people not taking care of it. Loads of dirt and grease in the seat. Also alot of foam was missing so i tried my best to fill the spaces. I need to look for more photos of the seats because i think they turned out quite well.

Photo of the seat before and after - http://s1315.photobucket.com/user/mikewazowski14/media/DSC_3783-tile_zps47858b4a.jpg.html?sort=3&o=6


--I think its about it for now, I'll upload more photos of me working on the body etc to my photobucket and will update the thread. --

Yo wassup guys! Small update, i took the gearbox off last week to put a new clutch fork in (suspected bent one in the car) just to find out that the fork on my car is like new. So after examining the fork and the bell housing i found that the ball pivot is snapped. I've ordered a new one and fitted it today, i managed to put the gearbox together and get it screwed in the mounts etc. Now i have to assemble everything back together and see if it was just he ball pivot Smile

Update - Ive put everything together now but still got the lights and bumper and front drivers wing to sort out.

I've chainged oil in the gearbox/tranny and the engine and the car runs sweet as a nut now.

I also got some new gaskets for the turbo to downpipe and downpipe to decat cause the previous owner just didnt use any (y) Apart from that ive painted the rocker cover and cut unnecessary piping under the bonnet to get abit more space. Also got rid off the support brackets for the TMIC. I also put braided lines for the clutch and all calipers.

Once i have some time ill upload some pics of what ive been upto recently Smile
