Rusty, the fender.

Lubang besar, cacing karat makan
Ini bukan karat. Ini plaster
Plaster macam tulang patah.

Just got pictures of my car from a friend. I guess what they say about tin worm don't just apply to 4 season countries. There's a huge hole where right hand fender wing is supposed to join to the scuttle. The reason it looked so nice is because the sheer amount of filler was so much, they covered the entire whole. Although, scrapping off filler is an all time favourite pastime of mine.

I'm putting up the engine rebuild (up til today) on a separate post. Check it out. I'm kinda tired to write any commentary. Hopefully the pictures tell the story.

Mini Rebuild III

I've got more updates for the restore. The body guy found more places where the last repair job was totally crap. So, more metal for him to fabricate, and replace. The latest pics doesn't his next worry, the rear subframe and body. RUSTED!

On a more positive note.. The engine is almost done. The head is being ported. And the valve face is being machines for better compression ratio. Enjoy the pics

Engine rebuild Part II

Rebored, resleeved, rehoned

I've been having the worst luck with work this last couple of months. So much so, I could hardly stop by the workshop to check on my car. Not to mention getting some personal time to upload the progress pictures of the build.

Anyway, without anymore delay. More pics.

By the way, the engine block is 'new'. And since it was previously 'cared for', we've decided to re-sleeve the cylinder wall, do a slight rebored and honing. Also, we found out that the crankshaft couldn't turn after we fitted the entire upper engine part together, so we had to rehone the crank passage and caps. All this done at a proper engineering shop, of course. I've also ordered a new custom stainless steel LCB exhaust extractor.
Oh, and also, i've bought a new K&N air filter, and stub stack for the intake. Now need to find a better intake manifold, and maybe someone to donate an RC40 muffler.
