    busy weekend with the zed

    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

    [​IMG]

    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

    [​IMG]

    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 :coolsteer)

    Amazing shine! ^:)^ What did you use?

    Rear window looks really good & doesn't appear to have a scratched crease make along the middle. Don't forget to put something along the centre when you fold it down :-bd

    Thanks!

    All AG products.

    2 stage wash, SRP polish x2, EGP to seal, grey gate polish on rear window and lights, AG SRP on wheels then wheel seal afterwards :)

    Window does have crease/scratch :( but the grey gate polish got 80% of it out, great stuff

    Black grill fitted today, had her service on Friday gone, few brake related repairs needing but that's it

    Next month sees the brakes being sorted, and a new exhaust methinks :cool:

    Man, that was certainly worth the effort. Looks splendid, but more importantly how does it sound? %-(

    Are you pleased?

    in a word, lovely :)

    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! :D

    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!

    will get some proper pics tomorrow :)
