Gerbils Project Empty Gerbils Project

Post by AlexJ Mon 10 Nov 2008, 05:10

Thought id write up a project thread as ive got nothing to do

Started with this

Gerbils Project 03052008188

Swapped with a guy in derby for this

Gerbils Project 18072008250

Started off by taking off the rear badges and the wiper - just to tidy up the rear end a little bit

Then i took off the towbar, unplugged the egr valve and went out to get a few better pictures - Tragedy!

Gerbils Project 24072008253
Gerbils Project 24072008251

Conrod failure! Luckily it happened just down the road and my dad was on standby to tow me home, as you can see the lovely puddle of oil running down the road!

One month later, an engine swap off a mate, an engine from leeds out of a 405 and 700 gone i was back on the road - whilst my car was in the garage i got 80 worth of tools, half a tank of diesel, my stereo, a set of bosch fuel lines and injectors and my induction kit stolen...lovely

S**T camera though but this is when i was back up and running

Gerbils Project IMG0057A

One with buddahs car

Day after that i rewired the stereo connections as the wires were cut when the stereo got taken and installed a boost gauge

Gerbils Project IMG0065A
Gerbils Project IMG0064A
oh and broke my garage door
Gerbils Project IMG0063A

Then i decided to get the paintwork tidy as i was sick of bumperblacking all the black every time i cleaned it - never had to bother with the old ph3, and there was some laquer peel on the mirror caps, just got the mirror caps the badge and the doorhandles done but it looked much tidier in satin black, apart from my poor sanding of the handles so the paint is a bit flakey Sad

Gerbils Project PICT0473
Gerbils Project PICT0472
Gerbils Project PICT0471
Gerbils Project PICT0470

One of it all back on the car and polished up
Gerbils Project PICT0488

Then the bumper came off and it was time to re-do the black strip across the front

Gerbils Project 004

Didnt go so well i rushed it and oversprayed onto the red Sad im too ashed to get a picture of it and im few up of this ph2 bumper anyway so im looking to get a ph3 one

Towing eye got painted in black hammerite after it started rusting from where the paint cracked when i was being towed before
Gerbils Project 003
Buggeed that up though by pulling the newspaper off before it had dried properly
Gerbils Project 007
Been re-done since then i just dont have a picture

While i was out doing the bumper i got bored and decided to make myslef an intercooler spray bar from the old pipeing for the rear wiper out the bootlid

Gerbils Project 008

Basically just a nail stuck in the end of a peice of pipe with lots of holes in it - this is how it sprays

Gerbils Project Th_005

No real notice to performance but it makes a conversation point when someone looks at the engine bay

Now i finally got rid of my swallows and put on a set of 205 gti wheels, much better and nicer to have on the car while i look for a set of lazers to do in satin black

Gerbils Project DSC00839

Gerbils Project DSC00835



And thats how the car currently stands - although slightly underperforming and overfueling i think my turbo is on its way out so im holding out untill i can get hold of a gt15 manifold to fit on the car and it should run spot on then!

Future plans -
Get this GT15 manifold and bosch fuel lines and injectors ready for a tune up from Kris in sussex
Get hold of a set of ph3 rub strips and paint them satin black to match
Get a ph3 front bumper and get the strip sprayed black
Spray the rear bumper to match
Smoothed bootlid -Already have the ph3 bootlid just need it smoothing
Satin black lazers
Lowering
Front mounted intercooler - in the process of getting the bits together
Dump Valve - just for fun, will be wired in with a switch so i can turn it off

Thats all i can think of right now ill update with anything i just so happen to do along the way

Bit of an update, Dump valve is plumed in but doesnt work, the spring has collapsed so its constantly letting out boost - a S**T load of tape solved this problem, just waiting for a bargain one to pop up on ebay.

Sorted out a little bit of a stereo problem - 400W and a 10" sub lol, just to add a bit of bass while im going along, my budget install so far made from old sheets of laminate flooring and plywood i had knocking about

Going backwards now then, got really fed up with the car after it failed the MOT on 10 things and decided to strip it back to original spec....woops, when the guy turned up and told me it was worth no more than 675 i decided i wanted to keep it as it owes me nearly 3 grand!
But this is currently how it stands

Gerbils Project 010-2
Caved in from where it had been dropped off a jack once or twice, sideskirts covered it up...

The mark on the front bumper is from where i hit a bird!

spray bars to work properly have to get the watter to a microgram in weight too work effectivly soaking it gives no effect
