Bit of tidying up under the bonnet
Looking a bit more presentable now with an upcoming season of Super Lap Scotland shortly
Part-ex my car so no more from me
I love how you did the strut top enlargement, will be stealing that idea when mine get done !
I've cleaned it ... :-D
Put the rear brace and cargo net in and took the rear seats out
Booked my R26 in with Chris at EFI Parts for a custom remap in April. Looking forward to seeing how his map compares to the KTR map that's currently on it. Also looking forward to having a fully working fuel gauge again as KTR never mapped the 630cc injectors in correctly...
Gearbox fully refurbed with new bearings and seals and reground synchros, new DMF & clutch and slave cylinder & pilot bearing, complete refurb of brake calipers including sand blasted and powder-coated in orange, new brake pistons and seales all round, oil service, new wishbones, swivel hub bearing changed, PF z rated front pads,new ARB powerflex bushes and rear axel poweflex bushes,
New engine mounts including gearbox mount, and lower torque mount powerflex insert (red ones)
New PS4 all round, new accesory belt and tensioner + idler pulley
All done over the last 4 weeks and car now ready to do another 160k miles (unless body gives up)
Dropped off for cage.
I went to these guys to buy my track day helmet. They seemed like a nice bunch.
Had a stone chip in my windscreen repaired. Not quite so glamorous lol
Treated the Meg to 2 front tyres. Michelin PS4S at £360+. Feels so much better than Avons with 1.9mm tread lol.
Cleaned the car and put the track wheels on for the first time.

Parked next to some water.
Must have been feeling flush
nice work!i added black badges removed megane letters and fitted akra exhaust!
Laguna gt gear knob and gloss center console.
After the palaver I had yesterday with my swivel bearings on the R26, I thought I’d try and do something a little more productive.
As it was still up on axle stands, I replaced my lower engine mount with a standard febi part......wish I’d have got a polyurethane insert for it though.....It feels like there’s too much engine movement when coming on/off throttle and the new mount has only made a negligible difference. (Already done the gearbox mount but the top mount and upper stabiliser still to do).
I still wasn’t happy with the last couple of days efforts so I decided it was finally time to replace my PATHETIC horn.
I’ve not pipped at any knobheads for almost a year ha ha ha - It was just too embarrassing!
So, I’d picked one up from the scrappy a while back.
I was very impressed with how easy the bumper was to remove. It was a bit fiddly to get back on but still straightforward.
I was concerned when I realised that my meg had a double horn and the one from the scrapyard (std spec meg, few years older) was a single.
Anyway, it swapped over without any problem and is waaaaaaay better!
Watch out, knobheads!
Fit a stereo, miles better than the standard pile of shit
one day i will actually change the same crap stereo out of my R26!..
truly awful stereo ,that re tunes itself for no apparent reason!
Looks good, glad it arrived in one piece.
Cheers, it’s a lot nicer than the standard one, just a pain to keep clean haha.
Ha, tell me about it! Ive got one in my 265
Replaced my window decals....
Chuffed with the result!
Like Leigh my horn packed up, I also think the oem one is rubbish so decided on fitting twin air horns. Less than £30 from Halfords.
They work a treat, nice and loud! Watch out middle lane hoggers.

Fit my Scangauge today now I don’t need the stereo screen
Now you can't see the clock or the temperature outside.
Don't need to know the temp to know if its icy and the stereo tells you the time along with my watch
Been doing the same sort of thing. Make a guage holder out the original housing
Still a bit of sanding needs doing then I'll get it flocked
Wash, quick pass with the polisher and a wax and tyre shine
Picked it up from Mark Black, new Clutch, solid flywheel, driveshaft, hub bearings, oil and filter.
Expensive day out.
Gave it a quick wash
Done the front blade today , sprayed with Plastikote
Cleaned my arches this morning
I sprayed my blade too
might help if the photo worked
All work for me, anyone else not see them?
I meant my photo, sorry if that sounded rude
I LOVE doing this...... the Mrs thinks I’m mental!
I use a satin black rattle can on the areas I can’t get to come up.
I’m gradually working my way through mine after previous owner’s years of neglect.
Yours is looking good!
Oil change and check over after first 1000 miles since purchase.
