It\'s been a while folks.... life has been generally happening and TWiR has been doing her best to not relinquish suspension bushes that have been in place for some 26 years. The whole thing got the better of my talent and tool collection so I owe a massive thanks to Andy at AMT Ltd :god (support your advertisers people, that\'s why they are there) for completing the task. Now anyone who has attempted to polybush a FB will have a few stories to tell.... and as I understand it, there were not too many bolts and things that didn\'t require massive persuasion to move!
And the end result is so worth it. Combined with KYB OE spec shocks and TA Technix -35mm springs, I now have a FB that corners reasonably flat and points where it\'s told.
Some track day action coming up for sure, just some steering and braking tweaks to come before that....... it\'s great to be rotoring again :3gears-rh


Thanks again to Clive and Lisa for organising this event. Nice to finally meet you both as well :Thumbs-up Was a surprise bonus to go home with a cup (or FBling as it is now known) :rollinand I\'ll work on getting TWiR tarted up a little more for next year.
A great day out and I met some top people so that more than made up for the undecided weather. I hope we can get the group shot on the banking next time out as I was really looking forward to that. Maybe the rain put the dampeners on that one??

OMG That is a thing of beauty. If I look at it much longer, my car will get mighty jealous. I assume it\'s ex Japan with those mirrors? Couple of quick questions..... what is your suspension setup and how much did you drop it?
who did your exhaust?
what are those wheels (because I WANT some)
Does it still have the AC stuff inside?
I need an excuse to come to Edinburgh (apart from the fact that my dad was born there and I\'ve never been) so the rotary connection might just do it. My car wants to meet yours so it could be a beautiful thing........
Gorgeous car, you must be proud.    I know a guy who may be interested in parting with some Koni coilovers, I\'ll make some enquiries

Finally got around to changing the beehive yesterday as I\'m sick of seeing little oil pools under the car. 10mm spanner for the two nuts underneath, 12mm for the bolt onto the top of the motor and a 23mm for the oil banjo. For starters, I had to go out and buy a 23mm ring spanner (I\'ve got a 22 and 24 :Grrr) as there is no room to fit a socket. Those 10mm nuts look easy enough but they are a right PITA if the undersides of the beehive are coated in eons worth of oil and dirt.
The 12mm one is the easiest to get to but it was welded so tight.. millions of torques applied to the socket wrench, the customary TINK (so it\'s either loosened or buggered then) and then my left hand flying at light speed past a plastic connector, knocking that off and taking a chunk of finger out with the now exposed metal spade( would have looked great in F1 style super slow mo ).....swearing.....carry on until I notice plastic glove has blood sloshing and plaster....carry on. :mad:
Everything comes off ok, lovely brown water from it\'s innards and o rings are flat and brittle. Have now exposed more dirt and greasy muck to clean. Notice the water hose from the top of the cooler has been taped up, note to replace later. Luckily, I have a nice clean and dry beehive which was prepared earlier (supplied by Darkside Spares Dept) with some nice new o rings and so, in the best Haynes tradition, refitting is the reverse of removal.
Too dark to test for leaks so waited until this afternoon, fired TWiR into life, check for leaks, drive for 20 minutes, notice that low water light actually works (which is nice), check for leaks again (none) and top up coolant. Job done, finger recovering (thanks for asking) :Giggle
So, TWiR will be leak free for Brooklands and Japfest :Thumbs-up

11th March good for me too as I\'m not working....yay....    The April 1st one, can\'t say for sure yet.

Real good to see these pictures go up, rare to see a Series 3 TWR

Thnx Clive, looking forward to meeting you (and others) at Brooklands. If we all put in a collective order for fine weather now, what are the odds? :)

After an extended session at :godParagon Auto Finishing, a good excuse for quick photos in Richmond Park (Fenton nowhere to be seen) :rollin
Quite happy now to have her looking great as lots to be going on with in the stopping and turning department.
Also, still looking to replace the tinny (and way too loud) Janspeed system. Anyone got any suggestions or a spare back box floating around?
