Rusty’s Titanium 182 take 2!

Next up… having decided to head towards the current theme du jour…Clubsport, which actually fits in well with what I now want out of the car (weekend B road blaster and occasional track/Ring toy) I will be removing the rear seats and fitting a false floor, I may go for a half cage at some point. But that’s probably some time off yet. I purchase a Baf K brace, purely cosmetic reasons as we all know they don’t add any rigidity. Plus there was a decent offer on so it’s rude not to!

it took a couple of weeks to arrive, I purchased one unpainted as the standard colour choices were rubbish, plus I wanted to make sure it was ‘finished’ prior to painting.

Broadly happy with what turned up! It needed some finishing off on the wields and a couple of other spots.

So I linished what was needed prior to priming and painting ‘Honda polished metal Grey’ really happy with how it’s come out, only temporarily fitted at the moment as over the coming weeks I’ll be working on the false floor

Final update for today. Spark plugs! I don’t have a receipt for when they were last changed. They looked ok but we’re not the favoured NGK’s and were due a change I’m sure

I managed to get a deal on a new set of NGK Platinums. Which these engines seem to worked best with

All fitted and running sweet, @104218 miles for my future reference

Great updates.

I tried lowering my steering wheel and I just couldn't get on with it. The wheel seemed to block the speedo and rev counter for me, so I removed it. That said I do have a (smaller) sabelt wheel.

That engine looks lovely and clean.

What did you paint your rocker cover with Ian?
It was already painted when I purchased the car David. I mean I could lie and say some high temp engine paint. Which is what I would’ve used. But it’s likely emulsion. 🤷🏻‍♂️ To be fair it’s an OK job. I just bought another engine mount to paint myself as the previous owner did a s**t job of that

Well I can’t say I have a problem with it. Will see when I fit a smaller wheel soon. But if it does block the binnacle it’s only going to hide warning lamps which can’t be a bad thing
