  1. Yesterday
  2. That's true, I think a trip to an industrial estate is in order πŸ‘
  3. Last week
  4. I often get hung up about locations and often forget it’s just about what’s in the photo, you don’t need a huge view otherwise the emphasis is taken from the car especially when you are taking partial focus shots like these. Put some focus on the car but using a plain side of a building as a back drop or a doorway or even an archway
  5. Thanks! Biggest issue I seem to have is finding new and decent locations πŸ€”
  6. Some good photos here Dan, you are certainly getting to grips with the camera πŸ‘πŸ»
  7. 2nd time round finding the right place for this keep of my photos πŸ˜… hopefully as I improve with my Nikon I can get some practice in with some different cars from the club! I'll continue to add bits and pieces as time goes on.
  8. Watching β€œBack to the Future” ! I don’t think I have seen any of these films in their entirety from start to finish, it’s always been a. Bit here and a bit there
  9. @Mr Watton you have been busy! Hopefully the seal that wasn't fitted properly has put your ABS problems to bed! Frank looks great with his new radiator and intercooler; you should just run him with no front bumper to show it all off I'm loving that turbo blanket, too
  10. I think we need a bit of normality back but even with a reduced team there will still be a lot of people there. Fingers crossed everyone follows the rules
  11. Who else is looking forward to this weekends return to F1? It won’t be what we are used to that’s for sure, and this short video will detail on how different it’s going to be...
  12. Earlier
  13. So the drama continues. Got it started and bled the coolant, pretty straight forward but the ABS light came back on again. This has happened a few times now so I’m a bit of a pro when it comes to getting to the ABS plug. Yet again there’s water in the socket again so instead of rebuilding the car I ended up stripping the Ecu bracket out so I could do some wiring checks and makes sure water wasn’t tracing up to the plug. After some heavy watering can action on the surrounding wiring nothing was tracking back up the wires (phew) so basically it all had to come down to water splashing up from the ground then into the plug. Upon closer inspection I found the seal that I’d put in from a BMW M5 wasn’t fully seated proper within the plug so I took the seal out, cleaned it all up then reseated the seal. Feels like a bit more resistance on connecting the plug to the abs unit now so here’s hoping that’s it!!! im knackered now after been bent over the front end of the MINI so the rebuild might be tomorrow. heres a front end shot for now with the rad, intercooler and turbo blanket fitted up
  14. Thanks @Kettlepot I might just do that.
  15. I’m not aware of any oem mud flats that fit the jcw kit so keeping the tyres/wheels tucked is a good solution. I would think that 20mm wider stance isn’t going to be noticed on the British roads but does reduce the appearance of arch gap. I’ve noticed more more of an appearance change on the rear so that might be a consideration for you. Once this COVID 5h1t is over, you are welcome to try my spacers on yours to see how they look and possibly revisit it then.
  16. @Kettlepot thanks for this, that is really helpful. From what I read, people seem to use spacers more when they have coil overs, which I don’t. To be honest now you’ve mentioned the point about the dirt, that’s swung it for me. I like my car mint and this would probably lead to more stone chips. The car handles well as-is so I think I’ll leave it. I’m quite worried about rubbing. Also when I washed it last night I looked at the stance (never really paid much attention before) and the wheels aren’t set in that that much anyway. Thanks for the advice I really appreciate it.
  17. A good way to check clearances would be to remove the rear strut and lift the wheel into the arch and measure from the wheel to the arch, this Will give you a good indication of room but you’ll not know how far the suspension will travel until you get it loaded and on the road
  18. I use them, I wasn’t sure I needed them at first but didn’t want to fit the coilovers for them to rub etc. I went for 10 MM hubcentric. They do rub a little as I have no camber correction on the rear and the front is at -1.5 degrees (I think) Personally I wouldn’t go for more than 10mm but it all depends how much weight you will carry in the rear for how far the rear wheel will need to into the arch. you will struggle to find a spacer between 5-10mm due to the size of the lip on the hub, you need to have enough lip to support the wheel. also a thing to consider, with a wider stance the tyres throw more rubbish out of the arch which a good portion of it will be thrown along the side skirts, door and rear quarter (as it flares for the wheel arch)
  19. Hello guys, I've been reading about wheel spacers. They seem like a good way to further improve the car's cornering ability, and make it look a little better. Has anyone used them? If so, I'd appreciate people's thoughts on them. I'm running stock suspension, bar Eibach springs. I don't want it to rub, but it would be nice to widen the stance. I've no idea what mm to choose, and at over Β£100, with the new longer bolts I can't really be trying different ones; need to get it right first time. Thanks. Kai.
