JaiKai - MK2 - Ziggy Build


Recommended Posts

Started on the tailgate by taking the spoiler off and also worked on the glass to get that out.

 

Only managed to carefully cut three sides but i'm stuck on the top section and I think I may

need to cut through the plastic retainer clips to get it off without force.

After the oil got contaminated and slightly washed down with fuel the turbos also ceased up. I decided to strip them and do the rebuild myself as the costs for that at the moment to be done profe

I had a wee surprise delivery from a Fedex van today and honestly wasn't expecting this for another week. Ordered from concept last week for my engine rebuild.   Only thing that is miss

Just collected my engine block and crank,   All good so i dont need to upsize my pistons, i'll upload pics shortly. Next order on the cards is new pistons and rods.

Wow, this was a bitch of a job to get out without smashing it.

 

Its the 4 clasps at the top that you need to cut through at the end that took the longest.

Swapped out the steering support bar today as the previous one I has was painted and this one wasn't.

 

Also pulled out the carpet so that it wont get damaged by any sort of rogue paint.

 

Its great to see its super clean underneath with not a sign of dampness.

That's it, all prep work done,

 

Just need to bolt a few things down ready for transport

 

I need to bolt the tailgate back on, bolt the wings and bumpers and lastly the bonnet.

 

Next big job that I might start tomorrow is to start stripping the engine for a tidy up.

Took some holiday time and I've spent the last 4 days in the garage doing as much as I can.

 

Just having some lunch and i'm heading in again to start work on the engine.

 

Not doing anything major, just blinging her up with some purple parts and the polished plenum.

 

 

 

some great progress mate and all done in between a full time job, respect :bow:

Work on the engine strip down started today which presented me with a few issues.

 

Firstly found a few areas of corrosion on the water pipes at the back so they need replaced,

I managed to get an alan key snapped in the front water pipes due to a seized bolt and after

I attempted to take the turbo's off the bolts on them are also seized.

 

Not a good start and not sure how to get them off or how to get to the bolts at the back.

Lastly for the turbo's here is the picture of those nasty bolts.

 

I can only get into them with a small 13mm spanner and they just wont budge.

 

I have bent up the metal tabs but they still wont move.

I have a feeling they are half inch Lee, there's some imperial stuff round there due to the Garret turbos. Makes your realise why removal with the engine in is a pita.

I can understand that as its a pain with the engine out too.

 

How the hell do you get to the bolts in the inner corner.
