4) Roadtrippin'

September has come around again meaning one thing: My holiday! This year due to COVID we decided to stay within the confines of the UK and rented a cottage in the Lake District. We drove up to Stoke-on-Trent and stayed two nights with friends that we knew from China and then up to the Lakes for 7 nights.

So during a few days away, the car landed at Jims for a full service, timing belt change, gearbox flush and refill and a few other jobs that Jim very kindly completed!

1) A New Beginning...

This is the start of a blog of my new purchase of a Nissan 300zx. I recently sold my two cars; a 1991 twin turbo manual in red and a black manual NA (Almost sold) to raise the funds for my new purchase. A few reasons convinced me that this was the right thing to do; 1) I realised I hardly ever drove both cars and when going to meetups, I always picked my red TT, 2) The wife was getting upset I was using her Audi TT for trips to the tip and other messy/dirty jobs and suggested owning on

Alarm replacement

I have now removed the Clifford Concept 60 alarm, intellistart, smart windows, sense and tell, 2 x external 128db sirens, 1 x internal 128db siren, 1 x pager unit. I have now replaced the 20 year old alarm system and completely re-wired under the dash and bonnet. Fitted even cleaner than the old one and harder to get to or even spot.  I have also replaced the drivers door actuator, fitted the chrome interior door pull handles with LED lighting and wired up, lubricated the window mechanism
