Car Park Car Show

I headed over to a local bike meet (check out my post on RSM for more info) this week and met up with my mate Topi. Topi rolls a bad-ass 86 daily drifter. Seriously, this thing gets DOWN.

Another guy Jack knows randomly was in the same car park as us. This was good news as he drives a sweet E36 M3 slammed over some BBS splitties.

I have some awesome pics of the evenings industrial estate terrorism….. but, I probably shouldn’t post them here Ha Ha. All you need to know is: Corollas rule, Topi can pedal one like a hero and out of town industrial developments are our playground.

Shooting Practice: Alfa Romeo 156 JTD Sport Wagon

I headed over to my Friend’s Rog and Rach’s last night to play cameras. Rach is selling her Sport Wagon, so we took a drive out to get some pics for an advert. I was shooting out of the back of a BMW 530D which has a spilt rear tailgate, making it ideal for these sort of tracking shots!

Panning shot:

It was a really good night and has got me excited about doing more photography and shooting cars again ! Expect to see lots more pics taken with me hanging out of the back of a 530!

Project Roadster: Rear Alignment

The rears have been rubbing a bit, so I thought I would dial in some more camber and hit the arches with a big hammer.

Settings:

Toe: 0 degrees

Camber -3 Degrees + however much is added by the lowness so, probably around- 4-5 degrees?

Project KP30: 1st Coat Down! Respray Part #4

The sun shone today, so when the world had warmed up at lunch time I laid the first couple of coats down.

Mixing:

Started off with my Binks gravity fed gun; Just couldn’t get it to work right and give me any sort of fan.

Swapped over to the gun that came with the compressor and BAM: Awesome spray!

Put about a litre down so far which has covered all the primer and for the most part given a good finish.

When it goes off I’m going to wet sant out a couple of imperfections and then hopefully, Friday, shoot a final couple of coats.

Project KP30: Waiting. Respray Part #3

Well Thursday spray-day never happened as when it wasn’t lashing with rain, it was 100% humidity. Not good. I have spent the last couple of days prepping and painting the trims and rad; all the little nitty bits. As it stands now the weather is set to be good all weekend so I  masked her up ready to rock as soon as the sun shines:

Hopefully tomorrow is the day!

While noone was looking I threw my TRD harnesses in the washing machine; I think they came out pretty sweet!!
