Re: Post Winter Mini Valet/Detail (photo heavy!)

Can I ask what colour you painted your bumpers please as I need to do mine and like the look of yours. Thanks in advance No worries - I had both front and rear bumpers powder coated as it means i won't need to do anything with them again - can't remember the cost but it wasn't outrageous.  I had th...

Re: Post Winter Mini Valet/Detail (photo heavy!)

:D :D You know what, I really enjoy doing it - just a shame there wasn’t a detailing market when I left school as I may have chosen a different career path. Full on high level paint correction can cost in the £0000’s:

Post Winter Mini Valet/Detail (photo heavy!)

Well, now that the snow has cleared and the horrid salt washed away, it’s that time of the year again where a good old external spring wash is required. I’m starting to get into the detailing a bit more and have previously machine polished the bus, but thought I’d post up the process that I use for ...

Re: Throttle bodies on a wbx

That’s true, I know they can be slightly temperamental unless higher up the Rev range.

I’ll see how I get on with the the MM rockers - I have another Weber carb that I’m going to have fully reconditioned by Paul Hollidge in Essex, then I’ll get it back on the rolling road for final tweeks.

Re: Throttle bodies on a wbx

That does sound interesting - watching with interest if your looking at doing this to the 2.5 build - could it be something that would work on a 1.9 and if so, what sort of costs would be involved?

Re: 2.1 MV engine. What are the best exhaust studs/nuts

I replaced mine with stainless and brass nuts (pack from eBay) and they’ve been fine (i'm running the speedshop stainless exhaust).

I didn’t put anything on the threads as far as I can remember, but maybe a little bit of copper slip:

Re: Stainless Steel Silencer for Subaru Powered T25

No worries mate - Dependent on budget, you could also contact Longlife exhausts as they’ll be able to make something up to your spec.

Also a stainless system on eBay at the mo:

Or new silencer:

Re: Stainless Steel Silencer for Subaru Powered T25

Might be worth sending a message to Matt Brighton as he put a Ford Focus exhaust on his Subaru and pretty sure he wasn’t looking for crazy sound:

Re: van keeps loosing power

As has been said, it’s been sitting a while so there’s probably a bit of condensation about - I’d give all the electrical components a clean up including the distributor/cap etc.

I’d also put some super unleaded in and then give it an Italian tune up on an A road.

Re: Has anyone made one of these?

I have a 2.1 plastic ring on my 1.9 and Ian is right in that there is an extra connector and this can be blanked off.

I have my old metal one that you are welcome to for free if you want it (but would be collection only due to its fragility).

You've certainly got your work cut out there (excuse the pun)! It'll be a like a completely new bus when finished.  Absolutely cracking work  :ok

Re: Engine cover/lid insulation and sound deadening

Hi Ian, if your after the original wire pieces, might be worth contacting Mick at NWVW (07968 367046) as he has tons of spares.

From what I remember they literally just sit in there and you just adjust accordingly to the shape in the picture.
