My Valver

Post by Boumsong » Sat Feb 27, 2010 5:20 pm

Day one: Home from Derby and a quick photo in the sun.

Looks a bit like a monster truck!
Image

Shortly after is was on with some spare shocks I had in the garage and better brake calipers. It dropped 60mm at the front and 40 at the back.
Image

Image

Then had the bonnet flocked, just for the pimp factor (still got the rood and dash waiting to be done)

Image

Shortly after this I needed more power..Lots more power.

Image

The old genuine 56000miler 1.6 carb'd lump was dropped out the bottom;

Image

And the loverly new valver went in the top;

Image

At this point, the brake lines where renewed, the servo was spaced out to allow for dizzy cap clearence, the cambelt and tensioners where changed, along with every other gasket I could get hold of.

Zoom forward a month or two and this is where we are, more engine work; Supersprint exhaust manifold and 3" link pipe into a standard centre to try and keep the volume down a bit into a custom backbox with a 50mm exit pipe thats about 2 foot long. Looks awesome!

Image

Coilovers and liberal coatings of copper grease;

Image

Stiff chassis much? Yes?! Love it!
The drivers side has been lifted around 4" by the jack and the passenger side rear has followed it up, loverly and stiff.

Image

The front has gone down around 110mm from standard height and the rears are around the same, maybe 100mm or so.

Image

Anyways, then it needed tarting up a little, so add a splash of color to match the hubs and a few other little details

Image

Image

And now I'm experimenting with vinyl/stickers whilst waiting for a few other shiney bits to arrive in the post..Mainly front wheel spacers and some better quality product for dressing the tires up.
