Dry ice from BOC gas, then when you are done you can blow some coke bottles up, If its a road car with a little track time I would just leave it there with the carpet.

Yeah, I got rid of all the matting anyway (15kg of it later) so I'll leave it at that. Put everything back in and cleaned it up nicely. Almost got roped in to taking the whole dash out just so I could get that whole carpet up but stopped when I got to removing dash cluster. Got the A/C working which was a bonus too. Won't get anything done tomorrow cause I'll be off to Hampton Downs for the drifting.

New spark plugs put in. I went with Bosch platinum plugs, seemed almost too cheap at supercheap (43$) for a set of six. The old ones I took out were NGK iridiums so I considered just cleaning them up as I hear they are quite good but decided to replace anyway as a few were quite cooked. What a difference it made! Much better response. Also learnt that my engine has a wasted spark set up.

Unfortunately I spilled a bit of battery acid on my back seat as a bat flipped over without me noticing. So I pulled the back seat out and spent a lot of time absorbing it up with an old towel and then watering it down with a hose. I heard you use Baking soda so I chucked that on too (With out inhaling the fizzy vapor) and it seems to have cleaned up without any holes.

Will be doing a radiator flush and general engine clean up today.

Arrrrghhh. Struck my first problem. Started cleaning up engine bay today. Started out by draining the radiator which was straight brown. Flushed the hose through it til it turned clear. Cleaned out reservoir which was also brown sludge and then once I had washed the brown crap out of everything I filled up the rad with water, just to take it for a quick drive to get it all through. It started up fine and took off as normal. After a few roads of driving the power started dying off a little. The gears were being a bit funny so I pulled over and checked under the car, nothing was leaking. The car was almost stalling just while idleing. Hopped back in and turned around. Car had minimal power, had to floor it in every gear just to get a bit of a rev. Luckily made it home in 2nd gear. Jumped out, looked under bonnet, top hose and bottom hose both hot. After a bit of abnormal idleing it stalled. Will let it cool down and then I'll re-check all the rad stuff. Anything I'm missing?


Edit: Once it cooled down, the water was back to brown gunk, so I flushed it yet again. Took it up and back the road and seemed okay again.

good idea to flush the rad both ways and the whole system with the car running and heater on.

Thanks. Here's the new vertex body kit I scored for $300. Needs a little modification but still cheap. You can see a crack in the front bumper. Won't put on car until next week though. Still after a engine mount and tie rod. Also didn't bother trying to change window motor yet.

Thanks heaps for that! I was going to ask if anyone knew what they were. They seem rather rare.

So good to have driver window working! Means I can go back through maccas drive through =)

Bought a radiator flush and spent ages flushing radiator. Stupid how long it took the hose running through the engine for the water to stop coming out brown. Filled back up with coolant now. Next up is oil change which I bought a engine flush and two 4L bottles of magnatec for. Also will put on the new Nismo oil filter at same time.
