Well it's back on the road now and based in Essex. Currently at Essex Rotary having a full service. Looked pretty clean and tidy overall.

Essex Mini-Meet

Nice to meet up with Bob Pay and his wife Shirley last night at the "Six Bells" in Boreham. Bob's Red S3 is parked next to my S2 in the pic below. We were joined by about a dozen other RX-8 Owners Club members for a lovely meal out. This is a regular monthly meet and all rotary enthusiasts are welco...

Re: How do you remove center console/dash bezel?

Thanks for posting that Ian :D Excellent step by step guide enabling me to easily remove the console to fix my backlight and dodgy radio. As suspected, the aerial lead into the back of the radio was half out. The back light had not been plugged into the console when last removed by someone. All fixe...

Re: KIMI 2 - 1983 Series 2

It was a fiddly job and though, and not one I'd recommend doing! It's good to k...

Re: KIMI 2 - 1983 Series 2

Thanks Ian. Nothing special used to clean the washer bottle, just soapy solution and stiff brush. It did clean up better than I expected, and most of the grime was on the outside, so easily accessible. Next challenge is the unreliable rear fog light switch. I have taken it apart and am trying to fix...

Re: KIMI 2 - 1983 Series 2

The refurbed oil cooler is now re-installed. I've applied POR15 treatment to the worst areas of chassis rail corrosion in the area around the front of the car (all surface rust - no holes :) ), to the undertray and to the bumper. Cleaned headlamp washer bottle and installed SPAL radiator fan. Just b...
