Finally, a T-40 is born...
« on: April 14, 2013, 07:49:22 pm »
For those who don't know, i.e. for those who haven't seen my posts of me crying :P, my car is up for MOT on Tuesday, and I reckon its just about ready for another year on the road. Only this year, sporting a lil' turbo ;)


BOOM!!! Cleaned/sprayed the bay as best I could. It's nothing compared to a lot of others on here, but it'll do for now.






Sprayed the wheels a darker grey. Pic is a bit dull anyway, but you get the idea.


The workhorse in the background...














Gauges are pretty bright at night but they're not too bad...



Future plans = 1341 rebuild. Definitely going over 200bhp next year....

Well, I've had the car 3 years past there in February so have been doing bits along the way. The main bits of the turbo [uprated clutch, k03 + piping, cam etc.] took me 4 days to fit. The majority of time was wasted, waiting on things to arrive in the post. I fitted the front mount when I had it supercharged and checking/re-taping the loom/spraying the wheels and tidying the engine bay was done while I was waiting on parts to arrive.

As for it sitting weird. I think it's just my yard is sloped. Though, I've never really noticed before  ???

Colour looks a lot darker compared to yours. Wish there were G40's over here to compare to....not really haha. Being one of few in Ireland is pretty cool :)

Cheers Alex, I can't think of anything better to put on atm. Really love these...

Thanks mate, i dont have that much of an idea if im honest.  They are 14's. I just searched 14" steel wheels on ebay n saw that these were the correct fitment for my car. They have 'seat' stamped on them so could possibly be off a seat ibiza or cordoba etc. No real clue.
