Project KP30: M3 This – Thermostat Housing

Well, the old housing was well and truly warped beyond ever standing any chance of getting it to seal.  I gave it 4 goes, used sealant, hand flatted it on a machined surface, checked it with engineering blue…I was ready to throw it in the bin.  So I did.  Luckily, I had another 90 degree housing off a later KP and, with a little modification and a new top hose, it fitted pretty well.  I think it looks neater and it takes the load of the rocking engine better too.  I don’t really care about that though…I’m just glad it holds coolant!

Curborough Sprint Course: A Day At The Races #2 – 07-05-10

I took the KP out for a spin this afternoon and, after rolling about a bit down some of my favourite roads, found myself in the vicinity of Curborough; being a Sunday, I thought  I’d take a gamble and see if anything was going on.  It was, so here’s some pics!
