Appreciate the kind words man. Few more pics
Gonna make a start on the crash bar this weekend
What a car, I'm in love.
Was hoping to get the roof wing finished, but the filler I got turned out to be acrylic based, so its still soft. Back to the drawing board
Then I made a start on the bar
No pipe bender, so was all slightly cut and bent by hand
Took a few hours, test fitted and tacked up
All welded up
Then went on to think of a place to mount the cooler. No space on the side of the car. Fog light, bumper and load of other stuff get in the way. So moved to the front... Not ideal for air flow to the rad, but meh.
Need to do the same for the pas cooler when I eventually get one. The bar is right up against the bumper, so small nudges will no longer cause the bumper to explode. Also gives the front end a bit more rigidity.
Then went on to de-pikey the fuel pump... From this
Also installed a sard thermostat. And blanked the bov
Forgot, few pics...
Indeed, sits higher than my head
HAHAHA, that's MASSIVE!
Certainly notice it anyways...
hi mate, whats that jet pump from?
could do with the same tidying to my fuel system,
Two pages back... All the info is there
Cheers mate. Missed that
That color of that gay pink chaser looks tempting
Deffo needs to go pink, will look savage!
Awesome car man by far my favourite IS
I think thats what you meant to say ^^ haha!
One thing I like about this country, is that the weather is so predictable!
Think ill try to commit to middle of next month to get the altezza to the track for a shakedown
Gotta love Scotland. We had 8mm hailstones at Driftland yesterday, lay like snow!
lol at how much snow is sat ON the rear tire tread
Good test of poke is to see how much of the tyre has snow settling on it
This is really cool, and a great thread to read too. Khorosho!
When I start to learn to drift I was thinking of getting an is200 or mx5 definitely thinking about this now, is there much difference between an altezza and is200?
altezza is a four cylinder beams engine, is200 is a 6 cylinder weak ass engine. (i've the IS2)....
My advice would be to get an mx5 over an IS200, they are way more fun and way less frustrating to skid, haha
ditto, i had a eunos with an lsd and it was exactly as pete said, easier to drift, and far more fun
