This is how my engine and bay looks like right now. Hopefully, in a few months, it’ll be a lot cleaner! If only the mail service hadn’t misplaced 3/4s of the engine parts I ordered. Kinda hard to start rebuilding withouth a crank, pistons, cam etc.
It’s here. Part 2 about the Juke-R build. Check it out.
Moved the “ladies” into the workshop. Time to prepare for the winter’s projects.
While in Kyoto this summer, I spotted this Kei-car with offset colored front fogs. I thought the owner just had to abort half way through tinting the fogs, but then I saw a post over at The Chronicles with another car having offset colored lights. They always find ways to do things differently in Japan..
I’m sure this is everywhere already, but seriously. Holy shit! Can’t wait for more episodes!
Check out this video of Kenneth Moen drifting / hill climbing along the olympic ski jump stadium at Lillehammer. Pretty cool.
Another picture from Gatebil this September. One very badass Ford Sierra! Have no clue about the specs of the car, but it was damn fast. Cosworth(?) front end, bolt on arches, lexan windows and a side exit exhaust. Oh, and full roll cage as well. Mean!
If you visit Japan, make sure to try out Okonomiyaki, especially in Kyoto. Delicious! There are a lot of small, but very nice restaurants there. As in all Japanese restaurants, the staff are very friendly and polite, but some places – like this one – just feels a lot more genuine. I wish I could remember what it’s called, or find the business card they gave me. I think it was located along Kiya-machi Dori.
Slowly gathering parts for the engine rebuild. This is what I’ve got so far: Eagle rods Timing chain kit Nismo adjustable cam gear Oil pump Water pump Gasket kit Still waiting for my new crank, pistons, valves, camshaft and some other things. Wonder why it’s taking so long..
More pics etc coming later.
