ok so transferring my project page over, alot has changed with what ive done since first buying the car and the plans i have with it so stick with me
So i figure its time to start a project page will add photos tomorrow but this is how my car was when i bought it the body work and paint are in pretty good nick already but did take on a little work.
Discs all round
brake warning light on
both rear springs snapped
front control arm bush play both sides
rear drop link bushes worn
rear tyres coming close to the limit
chip in the windscreen
These are the things i discoverd wrong with it.
thru trying to find the coolant problem they kept leaving the car air locked after changing parts.
small scuff on rear bumber.
a few dents in the roof in need of p.d.r.
rad cap faulty.
door clips and door handle surround missing causing a floppy door card.
wrong induction kit fitted.
a small tapping now and then when cold a good service should sort that.
badly fitted cat back exhaust.
And now my plans and what ive done already
all new oem brakes all round and a new back plate for one side on the rear. DONE
2 x new rear springs. DONE
find brake fault. done snapped wire attatched to the supspension strut
full service. DONE oem oil filter, 5w40 castrol oil, fuel filter, belt and ngk platinum plugs all flushed and sounding great so far.
replace coolant, rebleed the cooling system and replace rad cap. DONE no more wandering temp guage
get codes read to find the missfire. DONE was the camshaft sensor replaced it and its great now.
sort exhaust. DONE scorpion cat back system fitted correctly.
try and source a cost effective poly bush kit hopefully all round at once and replace drop links wishbones etc.
replace induction kit with ram-air or pipercross and fabricate a heat shield.
replace headlights and smoked indicators with all in one angel eyes. IN PROGRESS wiring the lights in tomorrow
source a coilover kit 2nd hand/ new and reasonably priced
source tyres/ wheels. IN PROGREESS bought a different set of wheels off another compact gonna see which ones i prefer, all the same size.
find a front and rear splitter that will fit and another bimmers spoiler not sure witch one yet
detail the car, scratches, dents, dings etc
built in headrest screens (for my daughter honest )
silicone coolant and vacuum hosing engine dressing and then......
And then hopefully ill have a very nice little bimmer thats tastefully modded.
