Lambo progress pics.

  Trophy #473

hey all

Just been fiddling. Managed to get the door to hold its own weight. But it wont hold it any lower than the pic below. its alot better than it was, but theres still loads of problems, catchs on the wing, taken some paint off, doesnt seal properly round the top edge and once it gets past about 60 degs the door really lifts up and theres only the top of the wing to stop it, more chipped paint, ouch.

Should pass MOT now, im hoping. The guy at the garge saw it this morning and said it wouldnt pass as it was, but ive now made it better so it should be ok.

but hey

I still think it looks gorgous even if it doesnt work to well.

LOL Prob wouldnt fit on my km1 ph3 then! have you done anything to your arches to make them fit?

I appreciate the attention aspect of it (goes with the RAC shade of orange and bling bling alloys) but its just ridiculous, like slapping on a V12 6.0 badge. I know youd say that youre not trying to make a Clio look like a supercar but it is giving that impression out, and its a bit stupid IMHO.

The Gas struts wernt cheap, £200 but the hinge i made and that cost me £70 for the pair, but there a bit week, so im having to invest in some proper Decah hinges (as my gas struts are Decah ones too). but there not cheap either, kits are 750ish but cant find a company willing to sell just the hinge without the gas strut.

My house is haunted, house in the pic is my Grand parents, they live next door, my house is just next door other side of the garge. shes a lady in a white dress, dont know if shes fit normally to scared take notice.


Mines lowered 55, not to much difference.



Not something Id do to mine, but it always impresses me when someone can do something like that themselves. Wish I could.

Obviously I saw the car in the flesh a few weeks back and it looks great.

Hope you get it sorted mate.

Well Done.

10 for effort, just not my cup of tea personally, but still, well done.

That was what Rob is trying to say too I think, at least I hope he is.

  300bhp MR2 Turbo

What sort of weight have you gained by putting extra strength?

I saw a heavily kitted MR2 turbo the other week with those. Cant see how he could open them without opening the window though.

Just wondering, if your sitting in the seat, how do you reach the door handle that is now 13 feet above you lol.
