  1. Plastdip who rates it

    I used it to paint racing stripes on my golf when I was into that... It peeled off a year later no problem. 10/10 would recommend for having fun with.

  5. H1 High and H7 Low?

    Low beams are a h1 bulb. If I were you i would leave the high beams incandescent as HIDs take time to warm up and in many situations you turn high beams on and off frequently which dramatically reduces bulb life. Cars that come with HID high beams stock use the same bulb for both low/high beam and vary the optics to change between the two.
  6. Same kit I bought, 6 months and still going strong.
  7. powdercoated rocker covers

    Would your friend be able to do something like this? My cars due back from the smash repair some time this week and id be pretty keen if he could shave and paint my rocker over like this.

    Would it be acceptable to put a chev badge on it?

    You make some good points. Where do you buy yours coins from?

    Gheeze that sounds like a recipe for a new engine.
  11. Bitcoin Thread

    Haha not for that reason, I know its pretty safe but at this point I don't personally trust it enough for storing large amounts of money, if you had a house fire or someone steal your cold storage drive you could potentially lose it all. I know it every unlikely but still possible. Its also possible that another system is developed and overtakes bitcoin potentially driving the price of coins down greatly. Just my opinion on bitcoins as it currently stands.
  12. Bitcoin Thread

    I got into it primarily to use the darknet markets and money transfer but also things like this interest me a lot. Since you have so much of your money invested are you ever worried the system could crash as such making your savings worthless? I also like the idea of keeping money in other forms to besides dollars such as precious metals since funds in these form are sill viable for trade in the event of economic collapse/depression. In my city there is a bitcoin vending machine and I went to use it for the first time yesterday but it was out of coins, its coin jar based and has quite large fees but it is pretty convenient.
  13. Bitcoin Thread

    I'm just getting started in bitcoin, I've got my online wallet set up and current downloading my off-line wallet so i can transfer my bitcoins into that. Did you get into it for trade or investment reasons?
  14. 86 or MX5?

    It could actually be quite a good marketing strategy, I mean the 86 and brz are hugely successful. Bringing out a turbo model in a few years time will generate massive sales since all the non turbo guys will want the turbo model. There is already a factory turbo version of the fa20 which makes 300 horsepower so maybe we'll see some version of this engine making its way into the cars in a few years.
  15. 86 or MX5?

    H Its an entirely custom job, that would be a dream if it were a factory option. Im a mechanical engineer and my mates an aircraft maintenance engineer who's pretty good at tig welding/fab work, his dad owns a mechanic shop which made things much easier. We fabricated pretty much everything ourselves. Its not a straight drop in bolt up job like you might expect,the brz/86 box wont bolt up to the ej25 so a modified sit dog box was used. You could mill an adaptor pate/ the bell housing and use the standard box but a built engine would destroy it in no time. The entire engine bay was guttered and the starter motor relocated. Its not an easy swap and i don't expect to see many other ej powered 86's out there anytime soon as just going turbo is much easier if you don't want stupid power. I personally think the chassis is a great starting point for a tuner car. If you want an 86 I would wait until they come as a factory turbo, the car just feels like its missing its true potential in it's current form.
  16. 86 or MX5?

    No way thats exactly the path I ended up going.
  17. 86 or MX5?

    Built 86 is getting into some serious cash though, my setup got really expensive really quick even without opening the motor. I never driven an mx5 but the stock 86 imo really was not designed as a straight line car, sure its slow stock but with a few handling mods and wide tyres it really comes alive and was so much fun on mountain roads. If you like the 86 and mx5 why not consider a rx8 or s2k? Their both pretty old now but you can pick up a nice example for pretty cheaply these days. I'd be all for an S2000 if it were me, but for the op, what's the point of selling his S15 circa 2001 for an S2000/Rx8 circa 2001? I gather the whole incentive of the execrise was to get something newer Oh yeah sorry your 100% right I missed the bit about something newer, i just thought he wanted something different haha.

  19. 86 or MX5?

    I went down that road, didn't end so well when one of the rods decided it didn't want to be part of the engine anymore. I still have the full engine loom, direct injectors and some other accessories if anyone wants them.
  20. I bought an ebay kit for like $35 or something a few months ago. It came with a one year warranty and they have been great, no problems at all.
  21. So, my ac fan will only switch on then I set the fan speed to 4 (max speed). The compressor works and you can hear it engage when you click the ac on to fan speed one but there is no air blown out on setting 1-3 only on setting 4 do you get the fan working. The air is cold like it should be but will only blow on the maximum setting? Should i just get another ac control unit and hope this fixes the problem or is it likely thats it more complicated then that?
  22. S15 Aircon fan control issues

    I got my new fan speed resistor and it all works perfectly now unfortunately I also had a pretty big frontal collision when someone did an illegal right turn in front of me. So i ended up with a car with great Aircon but no front end haha.
  23. S15 Aircon fan control issues

    So I though this might be a common issue and that this might help people if there unsure how to replace their own. I couldn't find any photos of its location except this one on taarks The fuse is located under the blower motor in the passengers footwell, its held in place by two screws. Remove these to pull it out This is what it looks like This was mine, its in poor condition with obvious corrosion. I checked each pin in the connector with a multimeter to make sure each setting (1-3) works. It seems that the resistor is broken, il ordering a new one and will report if this fixes the problem.
  24. S15 Aircon fan control issues

    Is that part of the control unit assembly? Edit, I found it on taarks. I'l buy a new one in and hopefully it works, thanks Protius.
