16  Extreme Kits / Extreme ChitChat / Possable Cerberus alloys coming up for grabs on: November 08, 2017, 07:58:56 PM
Hi guys.
I’ve just been offered a set of 4 Lamborghini Murcielago 18” Hercules wheels to fit to Cerberus.
That’s what happens when you test the water.
 Shocked  love em.
This means my origional set of 18” murcielago wheels could be up for grabs.
As you all know they were refurbed before fitting.
A price of £4000 with tyres is the sort of figure I’m thinking.
Would anybody be interested for there lambo?

Ps I can’t upload any photos Embarrassed

Hi everybody.
Sorry it’s been a while since my last post here. I’ve been busy out and about enjoying Cerberus to the full.
I’ve now done just under 700 miles since she passed her mot.
Ok it has not been trouble free but it’s been fun to say the least.
We’ve been up and around London twice. Showing off with people running behind with cameras trying to get a snap.
Given a few young friends and neighbours supprise rides and even went to a small car show to show her off. And to finish off with a pro photo shoot to get some 2018 calendars made.
She’s had all the attention ever needed for this year.
But it’s now that time to put her to bed until next spring.  
The gritter lorries are out spreading all that salt crap everywhere so it’s beddie byes time.
So this week I have been getting Cerberus ready for her 6 month hibernation.
She will live in a car coon inflated bubble inside my garage.
So let’s start getting her ready.
Today it’s bath time. I’m going to completely wash everything. Behind the wheels, fully underneath and every nook and cranny.
The best way to wash behind the wheels is to remove them. So off with the wheels.
Remove all the small stones etc from the treads and then wash throughly. Dry with a clean leather.
With the wheels off I cover the discs so they don’t get wet. We don’t want any surface rust on those.
I also cover the engine as I don’t really want water around the electrics.
Next I was the underneath completely. I scrub everything and everywhere and then rinse off.
I then wash the rest of the body using supagard shampoo and then rinse away clean.
Notice I don’t use a pressure washer. Just a gentle hose. Pressure washes are for removing crap. There’s no crap here just alittle Road dust. They don’t do the paint work any good anyway.
Because she has so many places water can just puddle I blow all the water off using a air line.
I then dry using a synthetic leather.
So that’s bath time done.
Time to give her a hoover. Just to make sure everything’s clean inside.
To finish off I give all the leather some supagard leather treatment.
Now back to the brakes. I give them a good clean using supagard alloy wheel protector. There’s no oil or silicone in this stuff so it’s perfect for cleaning the brakes.
Now back to the wheels.
Before refitting I check the tyre pressures. Torque up the wheel spacers and the pop the wheels back on.
To finish off the wheels I give the tyres a wipe over with some armour all. Makes everything look new without being sticky.
In she goes. It’s a very tight squeeze with barely a inch to spare each side on the lower side air ducts.
I will leave her in like this to dry before going into the car coon.
Only a few things left to do.
Put some fresh petrol in mixed with a fuel stabiliser to stop the petrol going manky.
Jack up all 4wheels so it’s not standing on the tyres for months giving them flat spots.
Inject alittle oil into each cylinder. By removing the spark plugs.
Disconnect the battery and then zip her up in the car coon.
So more next week Cool

I wish I could.
Unfortunately the actual build date of Cerberus is unknown and I have no receipt meaning it will get the q plate of shame.
So I’m leaving well alone.
I’m putting her away shortly for the winter until the spring.
Then next year who knows.

Hi Guys.
I think this might concern everybody here so read on. This could be important.
I have just learned from the powers that be that the government is planning to introduce a points system for all modified cars.
To include everything to a magic tree air freshener.  Huh
Seriously tho.
I’m not sure of the facts hence why I’m trying to find out.
Has any body else here heard similar rumours?
I have heard that sometime soon you will have do notify the dvla if you have fitted anything that modifies your car.
There will be a points system introduced so let’s say you updated your brakes. That’s 4 points. Then you fitted a spoiler. That 2 more points. Any more than 8 points. You have to do something like get a special test or something similar.
This is really serious for people who like to modify there cars.  Cry
Some classic car owners are worried that they will soon be shelf ornaments as they are no longer allowed on the road.
Does anybody here know more?

Hi guys.
Well I finally have the photos that were taken by a professional photographer.
Here they are.
I unfortunately have had to edit them to hide the plate and drop the res so they fit on here.
But me car looks the dogs jangles.  Cool

Time for a update.
Well I have now covered nearly 200 miles with Cerberus and I am finally getting back from my trips without having things to fix.
Now that all my hoses are fixed and the new rad is fully operational I'm finally getting there with the bugs.
With any kitcar there will always be something to fix or modify.
Whilst giving Cerberus a wash I got to wiping off around the inside the wheel arches and I pulled out my leather covered in black bits.
Where's that come from. Paint flakes Grin surely my nice under wheel arch painting wasn't pealing off.
Upon closer inspection the paint flakes are actually coming from the coil over spring.
The plastic coating is coming off as the spring is starting to corrode.  Sad
I don't want to have to replace these beauty's as my ride height is perfect. So some reconditioning is required.
This seems to be something I've overlooked when I was fitting the air suspension.  Smiley
Time to strip it down to recondition the spring.
Firstly I remove the strut from the car. I then strip down the unit until the spring is free.
The plastic coating is completely flaking off.  Angry
I attack the spring with a scraper and wire brush to remove all the loose coating.
Once all cleaned up I give the spring a good thick coat of black paint.
I then leave overnight to dry.
The next day I reassemble the strut and then fit back on to the car.
Sorted.  Grin that's one down and 3 more to go. Yep I'm going to do the rest.

On Tuesday I did have the photo shoot done but it kept raining. I think I leathered off the car 3 times that evening  Roll Eyes poxy British summer. Angry
It was quite strange driving along a duel carriage way with somebody hanging out of another car holding a massive camera. I got loads of attention. Probably thinking I'm somebody famous and the camera car was the paparazzi.
Amazing experiences driving a lambo.   Cool
As soon as I get the photos they will appear here.  Wink

Just a quick update.
I drove Cerberus around for 3 hours this afternoon. Going around the towns, alittle bit of motorway, traffic and to finish off some tunnel blasting again.
My temperature gauge now sits exactly half way and it never moved.
Perfect. Looks like updating my rad has paid off.
I'm having a neighbour who's a pro photographer do a photo shoot of her on Tuesday. Weather permitting of course.
So I will post the photos here.
