Magnificent!

Amazing in that colour and what a lovely finish. Legendary work by JD.
BBS challenge stradale wheels would look good on her IMHO.

Hopefully get a chance to see her, maybe at a car meet or something.

Well Guys,

Cheers to Chrys (JD's mate) for transporting her back to Stoke

Is it me or do the black wheels suddenly look good?

Re: Sparx01 build dairy

Hi Guys,

Final discussions with JD, highlights there are still some items that need sorting but before I get on to them, I must say how amazing and convincing she sounds, what a difference having a genuine exhaust.

1. coolant leakage
2. front suspension is bottoming out and requires a different type - any advice?
3. windscreen wipers not parking correctly
4. tracking is a mile out

there are several cosmetic items that need tidying up but nothing major and definitely something even I can do. lol

Cheers
Tone

Re: Sparx01 build dairy

Looking great there!

I have the same issue as 3. wiper parking, let me know when you get a solution. What front coilovers do you have? I have the gaz  adjustable ones, set 3/4 to stiffest setting and are fine.

Hi Brian,

I am not sure what type they are until I start stripping down in about two weeks time. They were already in place when I bought the car and JD is the only other person who properly fitted and adjusted them.

With regards to the wipers, that is something I will be sorting once I have taken the front end off. I'll keep you updated.

Cheers
Tone

Re: Sparx01 build dairy

Hi Guys,

I 've found a few issues on 1st inspection,

1)   I decided to have her out last weekend to take some photos of the suspension for Kev at extreme to take a look at and advise on a solution for the front suspension. Unfortunately, as you can see from the image, I noticed the wheel is not central to the wheel arch even though it appears the bottom arm has been modified.

.


2)   I opened the drivers door and the passenger window came half way down, so I put that back up and the driver's window came down, I put that back up and it immediately came back down again. Hoping this just needs resetting but I do know I supplied JD with a window switch and then I had to supply another because he said it was faulty, so fingers crossed.


3)  When pressing the fob to lock the car, the lights flash and all seems well but the doors are not actually locking. I think I will need to strip the door panels back off because I can hear something swinging and then clattering when I shut the door.

Re: Sparx01 build dairy

1/ wheel centrality in arch.

Wonder what it looks like if you lower the front coilovers a bit more, then let it settle for a while

2/ door windows. Mine sometimes have a life of their own (the drivers one).

An options is to disconnect the battery then let the system "learn" again. (worked on my passenger side)

3/ Door locks
Ive had those problems too, its fiddly to sort (and might need new mechamism), door card off, check lingages etc ensuring all moves freely. JD is the guru on this. Took me a couple of weekends messing and a new mechamism to sort mine. Lost count how many tmes I've had the door cards off!

Re: Sparx01 build dairy

Hi Tone
Have you had the full on suspension kit from Kev including the arm and strut tops?

As Brian said, try the reset?

Hmmm. Maybe the window has caught the inner locking tab, bending it so it doesn't  work and pushing the bar off.

Re: Sparx01 build dairy

Cheers Guys,

The suspension kit is an original one from extreme but we believe it is an old design.

I just need to remove the front end and then I can take a good look and see what is going on.

Same with the windows / central locking, I will disconnect battery / reset and take it from there

Re: Sparx01 build dairy

Keep us informed.
I think you'll find the top of the strut (the three bolts on the car) hasn't been modified.
I'm sure it's 32mm it has to move.
