Nice sunny day so had a good top down run to see the snowdrops at Hodsock Priory.

Got a salute from the man on the gate when we pulled in.

Now to go out and enjoy :-)

Well done on doing a fuel tank change. Quite a job as I understand.

 

 

It wasnt as bad as i thought it would be. 2 days on jack stands and a long breaker bar did the job. Although i have to admit the PPF bolts were an absolute nightmare to get off and put back. But i enjoyed it as i took a week off to do it just incase i ran into issues so there was no preasure.

If you ever do it just undo the PPF from the transmiion and remove the whole rear sub fram with it still attached would be my advice (making sure you measure the hight in regards to the frame rails).

Several little jobs over the past few days.

 

Replaced off-brand battery that had gone flat a couple of times with the well recommended Yuasa YBX5053. Repainted the battery clamp at the same time.

Fitted the upgraded seat belt guides which have improved the rate at which the belts retract.

I have always thought that the dash panel would look good with a relevant logo at the left hand end. Being unable to find a 'Niseko' graphic (which would have been my ideal preference), went with an 'MX-5' vinyl instead. These are available on ebay in a range of colours and are listed as mirror decals. Subtle, but finishes it off nicely I think.

Had a BBR 4 branch manifold , complete centre section and a remap carried out to my RF, mega thanks to Neil & Adrian, now boasting 182.4 BHP and 157.3 bl ft of torque, pulls right round to 7K plus RPM very smoothly, very pleased with the work, just a bit lighter in the wallet (but well worth it).

Not forgetting the 4 pot Willwood brake assemblies and the Eibach large diameter (front & rear) anti roll bars and solid links.
