newbie with turbo question
My pics for that car are here.
Unfortunately I never got round to totally finishing it but was pretty happy with how it looked.
I never really drove it at standard, like most my cars when I buy them they spend the 1st week being modified so they look good enough to drive lol
But with the wheels and new tyres it was a fun cheap lil car to drive.
What did you do suspension wise to lower yours?
Yours sits well. What size wheels are they? And iv decided to paint the boot black, i was only wondering what it would look like the other day after realising how tall it looks from the back.
well after searching high and low for springs in the uk i couldn't find any and finally gave up and whent old school and cut them. And when i did cut them i got serious scrub on the tyres which meant i had to cut and shut the rear axle to get some camber. Long process but was worth it rather than chewing up my tyres. How did u lower yours? Does any1 know of any compatible suspension parts from other cars perhaps??
thanks Adam, looks like i might have to go through the same process to get my other pictures up. Its either im thick or windows phones shite lol
My rears are on cut springs, my fronts are cut lowering springs from an l700 cuore(gives a stiffer ride).
So front springs fit from a l700 cuore
Now you know what it looks like black (^_^)
Got any pics of cut n shut on the rear axle as I've bee thinking about sumt similar on 1 of my other cars lol
I havnt got any pictures of the process but i can take some from under the car if that helps that's when the wether lays off lol. But basically i found the centre of the axle, braced both hubs together by tacking a couple lengths of steel to the tops then tacked a piece of steel the axle in the centre resting on the braces just as a marker for the centre. I then cut a slice through the axle just behind the hub from the top about 3/4 the way through (there a stub running inside wich doesn't need to be cut) i then cut 20mm off the braces in the centre, nocked both hubs together at the top, welded the braces back together again (making sure they're still centre with the marker) then welded axle back up. Oh forgot to mention to mark wher the top of the axle is when its on the car because it could vary depending if your cars lowered if you get me. Hope all that makes sense, ino it was a bit long winded lol.
Also wat do u think about anthracite grey bumpers, following on around the contours of the arches, then the side skirts when i find some to fit (longer wheelbase than a yrv believe it or not) and maybe half way up the boot to solve the long looking back end. Just playing with ideas because my front bumper needs repairing and painting anyway and obviously the side skirts need painting if i find some. Thoughts.. Opinions?
If you put yrv k3vet inside ur charade/avy ... the problem will issue only temp ... but its not big problem,.. like i insyall the yrv k3vet inside my wife pinky L900... temp issue only come if stuck in heavy jam... settle it with power radiator fan...
Sorry for the late reply I total missed your replys.
I've looked and the front of the charade has a completely different subframe setup, so it wouldn't be as simple as just bolting in a Zato subframe unfortunately.
Paint wise I'm unsure how that would look, but I think I know how you mean.
If you had any pics of the axle where it's been cut and modified that would be Kewl.
Sounds like a similar way I was thinking about on another car but I wasn't sure due to the shaft being there I didn't know if it had room to pivot(when shutting the axle).
Apart from all that have you had any further thoughts on modifications on the car?
