i havent posted for ages and i have been busy i blew the water pump up and killed the rad in one go so i had to rip the car apart again
the damage so far i think it has writen off the rad so i had to order a load of new parts to fix it
right the list of parts that have arived are
tensioner and idiler pulleys
a blue print thermostate
a new alloy rad
also a few bits i bought alittle while ago are
radio arial as mine got ripped off
a new set of spark plugs as i had a missfire that cure the car before it blew the water pump
a nismo oil cap
gen gtr fuel pump
light wieght pully
i got anoyed with the indicators in my bumper so i thought i would put them in my headlights. I had some old side repeaters from when i put clear ones in so i thought i would use the bulb holder from them.
i cut the bulb holder down abit so i could solder some wires on
wires all solderd
if your going to use the same holders as me then you will need a 16mm drill bit, i decided to put the sidelights in the dipped beams at the bottom
then i marked where the locking tabs whent so i can cut them out
next i took a 13mm drill bit and drilled into the headlight refector housing for the bulb to go into.
a test with a blue led
my new loams made up
one made and on the car
and the other one all done
what do you think?
just got one little problem, that the indicator flash abit quick now and i need to find the right resistor to fit in to slow it down.
the only downside with using that small a bulb is when your headlights are on nobody will be able to see you clearly indicating and the police wont like that and your car can fail the mot for indicators not being seen from a reasonable distance,thats why its always a large bulb fitted mate and also why audis sidelight strips dull down considerably when the indicators are used.
the indicators are in the side light spot and the sidelights are now part of the dipped beam the pic above is with the side lights on and the indicator on, also i am going to replace the indicator bulb with some nice and bright leds
