Well guys and girls I'm back again with number emmmm I've lost count... but I've decided I don't like having money in the bank anymore or seeing my girlfriend and kids so I've done the most natural thing and went and got another starlet I'm going to be skint and lonely and live in my garage again 😂

Here's a few pics of my old cars I'm sure some of you will remember them
First starlet many moons ago

And another

And another white gt

Anyway I'm sure yours get the idea I've got a bit of a starlet problem I'm into double figures now 🙈
Had a few hondas diatsu,s and a Lexus in between but always end up back in a starlet.
So I've picked up this glanza last week don't be fooled by the pictures it's a bit of a dog tbh and needs a far bit of work but the engine is good and strong and all the parts are already on the car so I actually don't need to buy much of once.. it needs loads of general maintenance and tidying and I mean loads it's been neglected for a while now which is a shame as it was a lovely car once upon a time I'll do a full spec list tomorrow but here's a few snaps anyway .. good to be back

Bit of an update

Had an absolute disaster of a start to the day got up this morning 05:30 am the drive up the Chester to collect all the interior parts I need from a fellow member on here. Got on the m25 and stoped to fuel up then about 5 miles down the road my girlfriends car decided to stop working lol I honestly thought I'd put petrol in it (it's a diesel) but turns out I didn't the fuel pump has just shit itself thankfully lol gutted didn't make it to Chester obviously..but on the plus side I got loads done on the car

So first job was to get the emange out of the centre console and bin that stupid water temp gauge I thought it was a bit of a stupid place to have the ecu tbh flashing in my face all time and the temp gauge on the dash works I'm not so concerned about my water temp that I need two gauges haha

Before
IMG_0743_zpsckwkisvs.jpg

And after
IMG_0747_zps2q2plkit.jpg
I know that still looks shit but when I get air vents and a new centre console it will be good a gold

Emanage wer it should be
IMG_0748_zpsy2fnkgqk.jpg

Soooo when I started to move the ecu about and having a look under the dash As usual the wiring was a fucking mess all sorts of shit birds nests everywhere so I got balls deep in removing loads of stuff that wasn't needed

Got rid of all this shit and removed all the leftover a/c
IMG_0746_zpsk0iyjb5h.jpg

Some service items are starting to turn up nowIMG_0756_zpshzz6hfir.jpg
loads more to go and a few bits coming from rhd going to build up a nice pile of things to do and smash it all out on one weekend no modifications all essential maintenance
A bit pissed of with the fuel filter tbh got from id workz on eBay no mention of it being bare metal and it shows a black one in the add

Had a good look round the cars bodywork to see what's going to need done
Skirts need removed ,some work and refitted properly

Cracked bumper

Glue from the wind deflectors

Oh and shit door cards

Any way the sun was splitting the trees by now only one thing for it .. out on the other toy

Mmm lovely that.

Yeah it's a shame it has deterrioated, however it will with use.

I have some projects that are mint, and are unlikely the go south any time soon due to the fact I never want to use it.

So sure it's a little worse for wear, but surely that's just down to solid use.

Nice bike.

What is it a wr400?

Really beautiful when luke had it! And that paint was flawless.

Am i right in thinking the last owner ofloaded the cage, seats (black corbeau ) and pexi windows before you got it? He sold purple seats for black ones i remember that much.

I remember from insta he painted the cage black and added the pexi window.

The owner after luke looked after this like a baby! Gearbox started to whine and he fancied a change so swapped with last owner ... slammed 320d 👎👎

So I've been cracking on with this car now has a full interior and seat belts that won't kill me thanks to zoib honestly the things I'm finding on this car and the level of workmanship is absolutely shocking changed the rear pads tonight well the little that was left of them to find two bolts had been rounded off and both calipers seised so yeah it was great fun ive also took the bov off and meshed the turbo I know people say not to do it but I've ran all my starlets like that at some point and had no issues and the risk is worth the noise imop

Big service time at the weekend and investigate a few oil leaks
Parts gathered up for a service

Blitz small oil filter
New plugs
New dizzy
New rotor arm
Fuel filter
Engine oil
Box oil
I'll change the coolant when my black hose kit arrives

So yeah plenty of progress I'll got a load of pictures at the weekend

I dunno, seems a bit pickeyish to not run an air filter just for the noise. Especially when you say how bad the car has been looked after, then remove the filter.

 

At least it's meshed, my car had no filter on it when I got it...cheers. 

 

It's scary what people think is acceptable to leave their car in!
