    The engine has developed a weird "ticking" noise.. to me it sounds like In the mean time, I figure I'll still prep for the trackday, so I flushed out the brake fluid and put in some TRW racing fluid. I used a syringe to suck out most of the old fluid that i could, then poured in the good stuff, however after doing that, this little dirt cloud appeared: So I sucked that out too. Two hours hours, job done! I did this on my own, a first and I'm quite chuffed I had no issues Except I found this boot had split, poo. Everyone loves a wee photo:

    Tried to replace the steering rack bushes, but I only had enough room to replace the drivers side one:

    It's a long weekend here in NZ and I dedicated a few hours to the Starlet today to put some Seafoam through the engine and polish the headlights I love using Seafoam, creates a huge smokey mess and the engine felt a little lively after. Yeah silly love leaving the doors open, ah well! Also found my downpipe gasket is leaking.

    Still the factory CT9 at the moment, not too sure what route I want to go just yet in terms of power set up. I'm also in New Zealand, so shipping may be a little un-economical

    Small update, haven't done anything interesting other than an oil and filter change at 230,000k. I've ordered the following parts: - JD Tuning Civic radiator mounting kit - Intake and Exhaust gaskets - Powerflex steering rack bushes (the O and D ones) I was looking at a HDI intercooler kit, but my friend who's somewhat handy with a welder has offered to make me a custom front mount set up and all I have to do is figure out what piping I need.

    In the right light, the lip doesn't look too out of place

    The wiring in my Starlet is a sad mess, however I pulled out the annoying Turbo timer last night: I also replaced my cheap Sony headunit with a much nicer Pioneer MVH-S305BT

    Good on you for bringing this back to it's former glory! The body looks super tidy and straight and I love the colour! Keep up the hard work

    If I could find a unicorn LSD box, I'd be jumping all over it! But they're super rare here now Slight update: my friend forgot about the wheel bearing, but he has resealed the Oil pump and Sump as they were leaking again. Fingers crossed that stops the oil leaks. I posted on a local Facebook group in regards to people's thoughts on the HDI intercooler kits, the general consensus seems to be that they're not as bolt on as suggested, so I'm torn in half going for a fully custom set up, or biting the bullet and worrying about fitment issues later. This is the kit: https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1737778681

    The original one is at a gearbox place, waiting to get worked on.. however it's a friend of a friend who is working on it and they, like me, have put it on the back burner. I am dropping the car off tonight to get the drivers wheel bearing replaced, so I'll be asking about the gearbox then

    Just a nice shot of her Of the bad side though.. I've decided for now to just have the lip painted as I was talking to the painter and he said it'd make more sense to repaint a lot of the car and I don't think that's what I want to do just yet.
  14. Hi guys, Has anyone swapped our the indicator relay when installing LED indicators? If so, what type of relay did you get?
  15. I love the wheels! What's the dimensions of them and did you have to pump the guards at all? I am looking at some 16x8 Rota Grid V's for mine, but sure they'll fit without issues
