Project KP30; On the road!!

Well the passed it’s MOT first time yesterday so that’s that for another 12 months!

My strut seals never did come from Toyota so I made a new seal using a rubber I had in my “box of miscellaneous gaskets, rubbers and other non vital unknown bits”. Seems to have worked a treat!

Gave her the yearly waxoiling too, which is messy but pretty satisfying. It easily has 10 litres in the old girl now so technically I should be able to park it in the sea.

Anyway to celebrate the MOT pass I modified the bike can! I have never liked the look of it on the car so I cut it up.

Say hello to 7″ of up swept delight!

Its hardly a 6ft star exhaust but I think it is in keeping with the rest of the shakotan-esque styling.

THE PRIMADONNA Z AN AUTO-BIOGRAPHY

Check out these cool Z cars designed and built by a guy called Jack Atkinson around 1974. The original Z-Bait was built in the street outside Jack’s apartment without even a workbench and was kept in a home made aluminium garage.

I love cars and builds like this; really inspiring stuff. Check out the full story HERE on the HyridZ forum.
