Well. It’s about time this blog got some treatment. It’s been far too long since an update so here goes. A part for my build.
I got a call from Mr TeaCake (a.k.a TK) the other day asking me to get the car ready for photos. The sun was shining and his finger was on the trigger.. Despite me not being happy with how the car was yet I thought why not and get the cleaning shit out.
Now. I haven’t really had to clean a car in a while. The mx5 just got painted when it got dirty. Was a lot more fun, however I made an effort despite the fact the pearl is still hidden under the grime from a year of sitting.
Another lad was already there when I showed; by the name of Derek. I was presented with this totally on the deck seat Leon.
Originally I was going to go for limo black on the rear 3 and a light for the front, however after seeing dark I went for that! Upon the news of 3 points per window on the front.. It was a very easy choice to leave those alone. Rather not risk the hassle.
Mr G turned up also to give me a hand. Remember those terrible rear amber reflectors, there gone now however they left a rather nice mess. I had tried to get rid of it but as I said, Im not much of a cleaner now. He got one side out fine but the other, had been lacquered over the top of. Nice.

Although your thinking not much was spent on the oil, my guess was. New oil is better than old oil. The oil hasn’t been changed in at least a year, so it makes sense before the NDC round 3 this weekend coming…
And with Ian making such a trip south, it would be stupid not to get some free advertising…. Right!?..
That wraps today up nice. Tomorrow I change oil and start to remake the front lip. Will report back.
Now.. If someone can just confirm the 97′ 1JZ single turbo takes 5litres? I know the 93′ 2JZ does but what about this one.. Answers on a postcode!
