General Chitchat / Photobucket Embedded Image Fix
« on: April 30, 2018, 08:17:23 PM »
Was meant to do this ages ago but forgot
If anyone is having issues with viewing pictures on the forums it is because of Photobox not allowing hosting anymore, unless you pay for it. Which I think is about $400  :o

All you have to do is search Photobucket Embedded Image Fix for your web browser and install the fix

Opera  Browser fix is here
Firefox Browser fix is here
Chrome Browser fix is here

Hope this helps you with viewing all our pictures

If the opportunity arose what car would you do next

Mine would be either the GT40, this for me is the most beautiful looking car ever
Or a very close second a Lamborghini Countach, love the fact that it is soooo extreme

Extreme 360 / Door Locks
« on: November 14, 2014, 06:32:20 PM »
Just a quicky
Are builders putting in the original door locks for cosmetic reasons, or are you hooking them up to use your key to unlock your doors, in case your blipper fails

Extreme 360 / Door handle pins
« on: November 12, 2014, 10:00:22 AM »
Hi Guys
Going to, hopefully, bond the door skin onto the original door, but have a few questions......
Is it trial and error of how big we make the little pin for the door handles
How do we attach the pin between the hinge and the little metal plate once the door is on
Have I drilled the hole in the correct position on the hinge, this is the bottom of the hinge, the hole is arrowed in Red

Cheers for any input

Extreme 360 / Main Beam ?
« on: July 06, 2014, 07:21:40 PM »
I have purchased these lights after being told that they are the ones but there are a few things bothering me before I take off the glass

The chrome reflector in the lamp is not smooth like the ones I have seen in other build diaries

The distance in this picture is approximately 3/4" and looks different again to the ones I have seen in other build diaries

Will this really matter if I use these in my headlights, has anybody else used these exact lights
Thanks for any input

Decided it was time for me to build a kit-car or replica
Trawled the internet to find something I liked, and would enjoy building
Found The eXtreme 360 and fell in love with it

And so it began. . . . . . . .

Joined The Extreme Owners Club

March 26th 2014

Travelled up to Peterborough to purchase a W reg V6 D9, with electric everything, cruise control and only 78000 miles on the clock. She flew home. I was impressed with the performance.

April 5th 2014

I renewed the Cam belt and tensioners.

Fixed the passenger electric seat. Would not move back or forwards, a wire had broken off of one of the micro switches, I just stripped it back and soldered it back on. Bingo  ;D

I removed the exhaust, had to get the reciprocating saw to it as I could not undo all of the nuts. Anyway, I cut the exhaust off, removed the two cat’s that are not monitored, welded in some new stainless pipes and then welded up the exhaust where I had to cut it to remove it.
Went back sweet as and no blows, that was a relief

Spent the next few weeks reading lots of build diaries, looking at the pictures and having many nights dreaming of being in my garage

May 6th 2014

Took a trip to Hull, with the wife, had to make her feel part of it, as she will not see me for months when I get the kit  ;)
Met the eXtreme boys, spent about 5 hours there talking about what plans they had for the future, how my kit will be made, how to do certain aspects of the build.
Very passionate about their work, great couple of blokes
Put down the deposit, yeah the game is on

Bought 19” wheels and tyres, wing badges, bonnet badge, indicator lights, side lights, oh and a nice new key ring  ;D

June 15th 2014

Made a start on the project, front bumper, headlights and both front wings

Cut and welded up near side sill for the new door to open into, this was measured 5” from the front of the sill and 7.5”

June 20th 2014

Stripped the back end and marked out the rear wings and spare wheel  well for cutting
Using my trusty Angle Grinder went at it like a man possessed  :P

Removed the bonnet, wiper arms, windscreen rubber and windscreen scuttle panel.
Stripped out the wiper motor ready to mark and cut out the top of the bulk head.

June 22nd 2014

Removed (smashed) the rear screen, covered the whole inside of the screen with gaffer tape, cut away the screen rubber and the popped it with an automatic centre punch. Then covered the whole of the outside of the screen with gaffer tape, and removed the screen without getting too much glass everywhere. Taped up the remains of the glass that is bonded, just so not to cut my little pinkies  :o

June  24th 2014

Removed the parcel shelf, roof skin and C’ Posts.

June 27th 2014

Tool arrived to remove the Windscreen, got all the way round perfect, then about  7” away from the bottom Near Side corner CRACK— bo&^#x.
I didn’t see the two little upstands on the scuttle panel. This kicked up the tool and you now know the rest.
Oh well must crack on ( boom boom ), removed screen,  marked out for the cuts on the A’Posts, the B’Posts and the two brace panels running across the roof.
Checked all of the measurement umpteen times, then made all the cuts.
Once all the cuts were done, I got my ratchet straps and pulled down the B’Post to the correct position. Welded up and did the other side the exact same way.

June 29th 2014

Finished of the welding round the two B’Posts, cut the excess off of the brace panels and welded them up as well

To be continued..........

Extreme 360 / B' Posts
« on: June 25, 2014, 10:01:42 PM »
Hi everyone
 I am in the process of stripping and cutting the car in readiness for the arrival of my kit .
I have the build DVD and it says to measure 4cm from the bottom of the B' Post at the front and 5cm on the back.
When I do this  it will then make my B' Post 310mm and not 300mm.
What I would like to know is, should I just measure  300mm down, cut and ignore this part of the DVD
Or am I missing the point somewhere

General Chitchat / Airbags
« on: June 12, 2014, 04:36:51 PM »
 Is it possible to use a steering wheel and airbag from another make and model, or would the airbag be a problem. Not sure if different cars have a different voltage for their airbags or are they all the same

Extreme ChitChat / Road Trip to Hull
« on: May 06, 2014, 10:44:32 PM »
Took a long drive up to Hull to meet the eXtreme guys today
Made me feel welcome as soon as I got there. Thank you
Didn't need to ask many questions as they told me everything I needed to know about the build. Excellent stuff
Also showed me how to do certain aspects of the build to make it easier.
Was there for around 4 hours and could of easily stayed longer.
Wish it was my kit I saw, that is nearly ready for collection, and not Tekkigizmo's ( I'm a little envious but not showing it ) haha
Really appreciate today, thank you so much for the invite up
Now; how many sleeps is it until I collect my kit
Mickey ( a little excited ) London
