Put some miles in since the MOT, went down the borders for a drive round moffat, selkirk, peebles, stopped at tala for a photo too.
The following week we drove up to fort william and back and managed 360 miles to a full tank couldnt believe it. We also stopped at the skyfall parking space, the views were unreal!
Also, every jap car owners worst nightmare finally happened. I found rust! I noticed a bubble near the front passenger jacking point last year but didnt want to poke the bear as i had so much other stuff going on. When the car was in for its mot at automek i got kian to have a nosey and it wasnt good. Turns out if you jab a bubble it bursts! So we booked in for it to be cut out and replaced with fresh metal.
After having the car back on the road for a bit ive remembered how awful the speakers are so ive decided to upgrade to some 300w pioneers.
A massive upgrade compared to the 130w max power esque bad boys in the door cards!
Unfortunately the replacements were a tad too big so i made up some plywood spacers to allow the cages to sit in the original places, i only had time to replace the fronts as id need the full interior out to replace the rears. Even with the 12mm ply spacers they still fitted behind the door card easily
At some point i will do the rears but even just having the fronts upgraded is miles better thsn before.
Since the car is now motd i managed to get these fitted. Not to everyones taste but i see a lot of kanjo and bozozoku guys running them in japan and i just thing that stuff is awesone. Fitted my jdm plate too so it looked the part!
