Getting my alloy repaired after being hit by a scooter.

Well recently ive been very busy -

 

I rewired my temp/ volt modules so they switch off (they were left on all the time) and reset (without having to "fiddle" with them) when i put the power back on - i had to swop the temp esnder round - one is for volts, one for water temp (for now)

 

The main switch now turns the volt/ temp modules on and the electronic boost controller - so ive disconnected the torque restrictor defeat switch that was beside the gearstick (only used it for snow/ ice anyway) and hooked the switch up to the boost controller - now i can switch the boost off/ on quickly (without resetting the controller) - by just flicking the switch beside the gearchange - im going to experiment with this by trying a low boost setting in 1st/ and mabee 2nd to help traction (360+Nm is a lot to try to put through the front wheels without any form of traction control)  

 

I finally got my electronic pump controller hooked up - had to make a special adaptor for the temp sender so i can keep my thermostat - its working nicely and should make a big difference - before i had to keep switching the pump off/ on manually - not ideal

 

Bled the brakes after fitting a new rear caliper - had done the other side last year and have ordered a pair of new handbrake cables - so that will be 2 new(ish on one side) calipers and 2 new cables - hopefully get my handbrake working how it should soon  

 

While i was at it i decided to paint my intercooler brackets - they are B&Q shelf brackets (in white) they were drilled and cut shorter and have been on the car a couple of years - i took them off and q-rusted them, ready for painting (might as well do these little things when the car is not being used)

 

fitted a new interior door handle - old one had broken - took 2 mins (to my surprise) - rear door cards look a bit rough but i might get a leather interior at some point so don't know if its worth changing them for now, i might fit a set of lightweight racing seats instead - decisions - decisions

Very nice. ;)

 

Stephen, I've spoken to Ian from Performance Creations previously about mudflaps for the new Mk7.5. Are these the new ones made specifically for the Mk7.5 or are they a set of Mk7 mudflaps modified?

 

Want to get my Kaylan mudflaps on as soon as I get my Mk7.5. :)

These have the newer bracket for the rear at the minute but still required a bit of modification to make them fit. I'm in contact with Ian at the minute so will feed back to him.

Sweet gains, but twice the price of the going rate over here.

Agreed - I can't beleve im saying this but there are more important things than modifing your car - + whem money is tight you have to think about MOTs/ servicing etc etc before enhancements.

Found out how the ST fared against a Clio 172!

 

Not meant to be a bragging remark as my mate had one of these 172/182's and memories of this was what made me downsize to the Fiesta!

 

It was mainly uphill so the turbo'd torque is no surprise here, but i was expecting it to be a closer match!

between 3rd + 4th gear and this was with changing up at 5,500rpm without needing to wring it to death too.
