needed a new gear knob, as the stock ///M one was battered, wanted a stormwerks one, but too expensive for now, so got this on the bay for £15, solid alloy, quite heavy so helps shift feel a bit, and sits lower, just need to mod the shifter a bit more to make lower
rear window was in a very poor state (wish i had taken a photo to show) a few goes with greygate polish as marked improvement, sure its not new, but difference is night and day
but the biggest changes i cannot show in pics im afraid, finally got remote central locking working, and fixed the windows that were doing my head in, noisy, slow and had their own mind! a much more pleasurable place to be now
All fixes above i couldnt have done without the guides on both zroadster sites, thanks all!
p.s. also had my first proper top down drive this afternoon, just couldnt stop driving lol
sounds really deep, with rumbles on overrun and a nice note, but at the moment it has a loud spot at 2k, no matter what gear that is a bit boomy and really quite loud, but i did expect this, i've had worse!... i'm giving it a good 2-4 weeks to carbonise and see how it changes, and if not used to it or it doesn't settle, then i can have another silencer welded in for free below and above 2k rpm, its not massively louder than stock tbh, just sounds "better", if im careful with gearing, any road speed limit speeds 30,40,50,60,70 its as quiet as stock when maintaining a steady speed... put foot down, NOISE!
the chap who did it really is top $ took the whole day from 10-5:30... said it was a bi*** of a job to get it all tucked up as i requested, but worth it!
