This is my mk1

I havent made a build thread yet, but i bought it pretty much stock, other than some coilovers and some shitty wheels and other bits and bobs.

I immediatly built up some BBS rms and put them on

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Tom6m

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Rm1w


this is it at the September meet



i had a day off work today, so i thought i would use it wisely

the car had a mk2 dash fitted, i took that out and was faced with this;


Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img2991r

cut a load of it out, as it was all rubbish.

I dont know what mug put the dash in, but i wouldnt employ him.

Tidied it up so it looked like this

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3000z

then put the new one in. This is all i have atm, so i need the rest of the trim if anyone has it? im keeping the mk2 clocks though, but i may print a white face for them. i dont know what i am going to do with the switches, i could keep them, or swap them for mk1 ones. I also wired some switches in for fan, fuel pump, and interior light.

then the postman came, who brought me some goodies.

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3318

Dizzy arm, rotor cap, leads and a coil. the coil was black and silver in the photo and came in yellow and blue! so i sanded the coil down to bare metal which looks much better, then fitted them all.

Along with these came new indicator lenses, so i put them on which look sick compared to the orange ones.

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3364t

also fitted a duckbill spoiler which mk1g60phil gave to me ;-)

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3406a

I think it looks sick. I am also thinking about taking the red trim off the grill (even though i only just refurbed it!)

Took the alternater off,

took it apart, wire brushed the f**k out of it, painted some bits then put it back together

before and after

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3361hc
Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3362w

pleased with my work, i thought i would refurb the bracket too, so i took it off and realized how unnessacarily heavy it was, so i gave it to my mate to turn down on a mill

and now its dark and im cold ;-(

came home early today to find myself with this

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3410a

spal fan, cost 28 off ebay, about 90 rrp! bargain.

so i pulled the old one off and popped it on, the thermostat has never worked so its just on a switch with a water temp gauge.

looks so much better. the flow is ridiculous, much better than the 30 ones off ebay which i had on my old car.

the fan is silent in operation, but pulls so much air that it is infact loud as f**k!

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3435u

old massive which one came off

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3444m

Fitted the new coil, and took the misbehaving old on off

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3328j

Did a bit more work on the dash tidying wires

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img2998bd

then my mate came round and gave me this which was supposedly fucked and beyond repair,

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3416a

popped it apart, and it had no grease, and the seals were perished.

went down to a place in royston, who managed to find some replacement seals and spring

cleaned it, greased it and rebuilt it

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3417a
Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3422

Dont have any use for it atm though, but i may do in the future

and i leave you with this

got a shift light the other day, so i wired it in.

its a bit annoying to set up, but the wirings not too bad

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3449o

Wired it up and mounted it

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3451h

ive got a rev limiter and launch control on order, so i made a harness so i can just pop those in without having to cut anything when they arrive

put more of the interior back together.

im still missing some trim, so once i get it i will cut some carbon pannels to mount the gauges and switches

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3457iq

Also fixed the tail lights which were being a b***h before!

still need to fix one of the sidelights which is tempermental

woke up early again,

fabbed up a bracket for an oil old cooler that i had lying around

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3294sy

and fitted it

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3473p

im going to cut the inside off the grille to allow for more airflow to it

its pretty old as it came on my old car, but its mocal and its not like it could break over time

took the wiperblades off and cut off the little 'spoiler'

though i may aswell refurb those too, but i only had hammerite rust paint so they may not turn out that well

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3482

also here is a pic of my homemade exhaust for those who havent seen it. did it about a month ago

Turbo'd Mk1 G60. Img3483oe

Now i have to go to work for 2 ;-(
