Extreme Murcie / Wiring front lights ?
« on: February 28, 2012, 10:11:37 PM »
I've fitted HID to my low beam and when I flick to high beam they go off but when I flick back to low beam they dont come back on. I've put a meter across and they should be on.... hmmm So I need to switch off / on the lights to get them to power up again. I was wondering if anyone else came across this?  It might be just the case I've got cheapo HID's controllers. I've got round it by fitting a diode to the high beam neg which power's the HID box so the low beam will not turn off when 'flashing' which I think it a better option.

Attached are some pictures of what I've done. The wiring is only temp for now for testing, I will unsolder / heat shrink and re-solder tomorrow night when I get some heat shrink.

Well.. having found my Vectra leaking oil from the crank (gearbox side), I decided it was time to get shut. I've been looking out for something about £4k.., and ended up buying this! Cost £3500 + £100 delivery.

So.. during the week I've only had time to look round her and ordered what I thought I might need.

1 wing - £33 (delivered) eBay
1 OS strut - £28 (delivered) eBay

I've managed to get them both fitted this morning but I also found out the my other strut is bent slightly and it needed some new pads and disc's. Picking up some Mintec pads and discs about 2pm today and the other strut should come tomorrow fingers crossed :-)

O yeah and I forgot to mention I spent £550 on some ST wheels with tyres.. lol opps

More to come.. loving it !


Extreme Murcie / Murci bits..
« on: February 17, 2011, 09:08:17 PM »
well I've been doing ebay the last few days.. managed to find a few bargains but there are some that have been missed.

If anyone is after a steering wheel then you might want to look at some copy momo's that are on there at the mo. Now I made a mistake by buying a 320mm steering wheel to start with.. this is just too small. so I've just got a 350mm one instead :-)

So item - 270693657348
momos are about £160.. this one £40 including postage :-)

I'm getting a little bit of stainless cut so I can put a lambo script on it.. will post pics when I get it.

The red lights that fit in the door cards (like original) can be connected upto the original mr2 light wires in the door (310192811287)  £3.20 each

I've also got some leatherette coming as I'm going to cover my seatbelt holder.. pic's to follow on this.

What I have found is a ebay auction thats finished for some original lambo wheels.. might be a bit pricey.. but I think a good bargain could be had..defo if you want the orange look!!  item - 200573722731 he might do em for £2500.. worth asking.

Also on there at the mo are some lambo clocks .. 180627370153 .. faulty it seems but there at £80 atm.. they have dropped from a £400 buy now price, 3rd time listing so he wants to get rid. I think it's someone who was going to build was as there also selling some rear lights.. might be worth doing a deal :-)

If anyone finds any deals get em posted up !!

Extreme ChitChat / Owners club - Members only - Please read
« on: August 03, 2010, 07:31:12 AM »
I am starting to think it might be better to just turn this into a private owners club for people who own extreme cars, I'm getting a little fed up of coming on here seeing non constructive posts. If you haven't got something decent to say then don't say it !

I've banned two people already today.. I run this forum as a hobby and it's becoming beyond that at the moment.

General Chitchat / Can anyone ride a unicycle ?
« on: July 17, 2010, 08:30:17 PM »
I now this is completely off topic.. which is why its in the 'general chitchat' forum...

So it's always something I've wanted to learn and was wondering can anyone ride a unicycle ?

It seems a 20" wheel is the one to get to start off with and there only £45 off ebay..

Had a weekend away in Amsterdam and I see its been busy on here :-) We have posters trying to blackmail extreme into sending parts they haven't paid for ! Someone selling cig's and some other poster thinking we are interesting in sending out for soap...

Please remember I have a happy trigger extreme builders finger that will ban you for as much as not painting your 360 RED !.. lol

If you need to talk to Extreme then please contact them either by phone or email from there website. They don't come on here often so dont expect a reply if you post.


Extreme Murcie / Batwing / spoiler controller
« on: May 07, 2010, 08:22:11 AM »
Well I got chance last week to have a play with the controller I'm building. My MR2 dials are at home and the speedo is the old cable driven version.

I wrote some code last week that now reads the pulse from the speedo and converts this into MPH. I've also coded up so it controls the actuator / relay that operate's the spoiler / batwings.

I attached a variable drill to the back of the speedo and span it upto 80mph. Everythings working great and operating as it should be.

Whilst I'm in the development stage is there any other things that could be added ? I was thinking about adding a couple of buttons so you can control the spoiler / batwings manual.. any ideas ?

I will put up a youtube video this weekend of it.

General Chitchat / Adrian Flux.. proper wan*ers
« on: April 23, 2010, 04:18:22 PM »
Go with footman james.... not these toss#rs

Well I just called up Adrian Flux to transfer my extreme smartcar insurance over to my part build Murcie.. So after waiting 20 minutes and being passed to 4 different people (well the same person twice.. so does that count ? ) They finally decided to tell me they couldn't insure my build as it wasn't being stored at my address in my garage. So I then told them to cancel my smartie policy, thought I might get 50 quid back or something.

They then informed me that it was non-refundable.. bolloxs.. thats the first I heard. The girl then spent another 10 minutes messing about and I was then told they could insure my build, so she took the details address ect. 10 minutes longer.... no sorry sir we can only insure builds upto £25k so they cant swap the policy over and she also said that they need to cancel my smart car policy.

SO.. say I finish my car in afew months time and want to swap my policy over to a fully built car I can't as they cancelled it.

My advice to everyone.. goto footman james.. I insured my DNA through them and never had a single problem.. they were cheaper as well :-)
