So as a few of you know my old Cherry got written off and made a bit of a mess with it. Lol. So Saturday I went and picked up another to start all over again
First here are a few pics of the old one......

Unfortunately someone wasn't paying much attention and I swerved to miss them resulting in this

So Saturday I went down and picked up this. It is standard apart from the Powerflow exhaust and the white Nimrods. Some pics from the ad.

There are a few scuffs on the car but nothing that can't be easily sorted.

Some how I managed to get my feet out and walk away yes. Then ended up in a neck brace for 8 hours. Lol. Wasn't the most comfortable night I've had. Haha

Well after having the car for a day the Powerflow exhaust just wasn’t doing it for me so off it came and on went the Inox.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/C9A50786-8839-48BC-8292-8620828C59EA_zps31lm67ls.jpg

Much better. I also changed the steering wheel back to my old one.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/D04152EE-3A09-4AD4-A098-B44D9C86D717_zpsuimdbacp.jpg

Over the last couple of days I have been busy stripping the old car and getting it ready for going on and into the new car.
Got a pic of the 2 together.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/94C56041-93B5-459C-9EED-BECB6EA0721B_zps7ai1jm1f.jpg

Then the strip down begun. There’s not much left of her now :(
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/CEB94B35-8F64-491B-A803-879262697DB0_zpsblovmp7z.jpg

Then me and my mate took it all down the where the magic will happen.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/A8585167-D75E-4885-9DF7-A5DEE88F4C89_zpsdfdrt7p3.jpg

So as the little pikeys decided to help themselves to parts off my car they took the locking wheel nut key but not the wheel nuts. Thanks! So today I have been getting the wheels off the beam and struts, got the engine on the engine stand and gave it a good clean and it will get another clean tomorrow, dewipered the boot.
Here’s the parts.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/4DBEA8F9-2288-4D6A-A6AC-D1BB96AAD02B_zpsjqmby6vt.jpg

Got the wheels off and stripped the struts to find the shocks are knackered. Doesn’t surprise me to be honest.

Then after that decided to do something less hard work.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/AF3F2755-C98F-461C-BBFC-663C569F13DC_zpsvuwv5pwr.jpg

Then out came the forklift. Makes life so much easier.

24th January 2014, 23:10
So the last couple of days have brought a fair bit! The car is now lowered and the cammed JP4S engine is in and running.
Yesterday was the lowering . As I already have a lowered rear beam from the old car it was just a case of a change as I hate lowering these!
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/B545334D-226A-4B60-8B55-24A35ECDBA35_zpstqgwpii3.jpg

I found a bit of rust bubbling in the rear arch.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/7A59A0E2-6227-4457-B6FE-799C0D670A3B_zpsyoze5pq5.jpg

The beam came off and the new one went on.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/1ACBE69A-B5B5-445C-89B1-53559115DD56_zps07cwosb8.jpg

Then it was time to do the fronts. As the Apex shocks blew in the crash I’m using standard shocks for now. Put the braided hoses on too.

Then between me and Craig we fitted them.

Then fitted the wheels, put it down and called it a day. http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/2A41DEBC-84F9-4E08-BB58-870FBB8A3F93_zpsdg8bstk5.jpg

Yeah it did. Got a pic of the underneath today as I needed a handbrake cable off of it so we rolled it on its side. The car is done now just need time to write it all up! Yeah I'm glad I did walk away it beats being in a wheel chair lol

BenPUG106
27th January 2014, 11:46
So when I went back Friday morning I got the car back down on the ground and it sat nice. I didn’t drive it though so didn’t realize the awaiting problem of being too low on 16’s! Lol. This is how she sat.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/343F0C57-3965-4CCE-9978-7D7CA92FC169_zpsqnrleezi.jpg

I then started stripping down the front to take the engine out. The engine is the original J4 engine on 120k. As I took the bumper off I noticed the bumper supports have rotted away. Not a problem though.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/418E739D-84B1-4616-86CC-D594B2C25C69_zpsnkybrjqb.jpg

Then continued to strip her down ready for her heart transplant.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/9C5BE4FB-8D0D-43DC-9B92-C6C08B98B8D7_zpsh0csiod0.jpg

Then out it came.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/E468B11B-7EEF-4BEB-9FE0-DE2699D75590_zpsqnwv9xqa.jpg

Empty engine bay.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/B5F03D05-3048-4D80-8B17-043F708FC612_zpsgiuzvmhj.jpg

New cammed JP4S engine.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/84FF4A7C-A681-4615-B6DA-5A1E9D77E906_zpsacwez0je.jpg

I put my feet up and let Craig put the loom on. Lol
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/E5E575FF-E7C5-45BE-95D8-85DC98218E05_zpskz9r6knj.jpg

He seemed fairly happy with his achievement.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/CE34880D-7968-4C08-A4DA-B84539907B19_zps6you9scp.jpg

Chucked a Baker BM quickshift in (I find these work well with the Compbrake quickshift)
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/D611B315-F771-41A7-BFB3-E2E107222A7B_zpsocmg2pbs.jpg

Then the engine and gearbox went in, connected it all up and got it running.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/4F46B852-9D48-4D8B-940A-1590C73941A5_zpsya9vjgdi.jpg

Then back to Craig’s to relax with a few beers!

what are you doing about the bumper mounts? My passenger side one was just about caught in time, thought it could do with replacing.

BenPUG106
27th January 2014, 12:03
I'll just drill the spot welds out and weld new ones back in. Engine bay should hopefully be being stripped in a months time and we will be painting it along with the few other marks there are on the car.

27th January 2014, 17:17
Well Saturday was a bit of a quiet day. Most of the hard work was done. It was just a matter of tidying bits up, bleeding the brakes, filling engine and gearbox with oil, bleeding the cooling system and putting it back together.
One of it mid way through.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/40F4AF45-1EA5-472D-A34B-BC3C789EDC16_zpsr5yhrdr7.jpg

Then George popped up in his and I ended up making him a wiring loom for his rear lights as his was a major mess so got a pic of the 3 together in the unit.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/40F4AF45-1EA5-472D-A34B-BC3C789EDC16_zpsr5yhrdr7.jpg

Slowly she began to look more like a car.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/D944342B-3B8E-47A4-A66A-4FFE69657618_zpsvxzq06r9.jpg

Then came the problem of finding out the wheels were too big. Luckily Craig had a spare set up at his place so we left the wheels until tomorrow and put the Omex limiter on. The launch control is shit! I just like the fast cut limiter. Lol

I got it in and it was working but that’s as far as I got with pics as we packed away quick as we had decided beer and kebab was on the menu! Lol

Sunday brought us pretty much to a finish. There’s still a bit to do but I’ve got it to where I want it for Lydden Hill this Saturday.
So we started with the bracket for the catch tank. As the car came with the standard airbox I used that bracket.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/2EA0A76C-B182-4427-9B36-FA8E148C5C69_zpsp2dc7qpf.jpg

Then drilled the spot welds out and separated the piece of it that’s not needed.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/D21ABDCB-B3DC-4C6D-BEDE-D13D04E95549_zps5spi4w3c.jpg

Next was to install the Compbrake quickshift. So took out the standard gear stick surround.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/665AD946-901D-4B5D-8CCB-DC3033658081_zps3iyxxzej.jpg

Then replaced it with the Compbrake.

We then went up to Craig’s unit to get the spare wheels and get the handbrake cables off the other car. We turned her on her side. So got some pics of the damage under the car :(

Then Craig set to work fitting the handbrake cables whilst I stood around and took a pic.

We sat her down on the wheels and I took it for a quick drive. All was working fine which is great!

Then it was just niggly bits. The mirror needed replacing which was bugging me. The rear bumper and rear passenger arch are also to be replaced after Saturday.

Then for the finishing touch to the bonnet I put on some boot struts as I prefer the bonnet opening less.

Then it was time for a quick wash in the rain as she was filthy. She needs a good detail but that will come in time along with some paintwork touches.

So after the clean I put the car into another part of the unit put some lights in and took some pics. George popped up in his GTi to invade the pics ;)

Then I moved the car inside. I can assure you though the car is NOT pink haha.

And that is it. That’s my car build over the last 5 days!
Just need to say now a MASSIVE thank you to my mate Lee for lending me the money for the car, George and his family for the unit, putting up with me and the cups of tea. And the roast. Lol and Craig for his help and his family for also putting up with me giving me a place to stay and a place to put a busted up wreck of a car!

So now that my Photobucket is back up and working I can update this again :)
Here are a couple of before and after pics I put together. Think I need white wheels back :confused:
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/66F86451-8561-4F5F-B8A2-56DA9199CF42_zpszlclcqd3.jpg

Due to the typical leaking problem with these things that I have I’ve stripped the car and found the leak. It’s coming through the rear lights and in through the boot hinge area on the passenger side :confused: I will get onto that once the weather warms up a bit. So as it was wet inside was a good reason to strip the car :)
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/57EA9348-68B9-4DF1-AC70-20FFCE5AD6D3_zpsgsjdmojh.jpg

Somewhere in the past few weeks I’ve picked up an alloy C2 VTS inlet. Took it apart and had a mess around with it to work out how I’m going to get it to work, what I need etc.
I’ve pretty much worked all that out now so when I remember to buy the plate I’ll make an adaptor plate for it as the C2’s use an electric throttle body and the 106’s are cable.
Here’s one of the inlet
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/AC09157F-AC3C-4F80-A869-0107AC9798CE_zpsm9bhu8tb.jpg (http://s1349.photobucket.com/user/benpug106/media/Progress%20Blog/AC09157F-AC3C-4F80-A869-0107AC9798CE_zpsm9bhu8tb.jpg.html)

Then I bolted it on just to see what my options were. The buttlerfly doesn’t open when bolted on like this that’s why I need to make a plate.

The MAP sensor swaps straight over

Then set about working out how to hold the cable onto the inlet to give the cable the tension in needs to work.

I’ve got a few more ideas for that though

There are a couple more bits to come but will write that up in a minute :)

With all the bad weather we have been having I risked a puddle. That ended up being a lake! As a result, my mani cracked :( Luckily the next day Craig was free and he welded it up for me :) lol
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/BEED4508-96EE-43D6-B0C4-4F530820F99E_zpshthgjiae.jpg

The other side cracked too so hopefully that one will be going in the bin soon anyway and I’ll get a new one.

Had many fun times racing that in the old car.

Today I have been prepping the Morettes and badge for paint. I’m going for the same design as I did on the last car. Going to start painting in a minute I think.

That is all for now until I paint or Lydden Hill on Saturday

All comments and ideas welcome. Good or bad.

Last weekend I took the car to Lydden Hill to test it out see how she handled. As the car is I am very happy with it! Handled nicely, chased down a lot of the others on track at the same time as me and was also a lot of fun. I don’t have many pics but here’s what I have.
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/C002925D-5CCD-4D34-85EC-09297F8D5E8B_zpsi9f8eapf.jpg

After my day I think it is time for a new set of track tyres. Lol
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/FD193A30-BE37-4E7C-9D02-5CCDE7C458F1_zpskhglbpvq.jpg

Then I made it back to the bottom of my road and my driveshaft shot out through my tyre. So pretty lucky and it was in interesting drive home with the driveshaft on its way out. The alternator belt snapped on my 3rd session leaving me with nothing but still got one last session in then Webby took me to his to pick up a spare. Cheers mate :) Lol

That’s it for now. But I have just got a new job so lots of things are in the pipeline. Also had it running on bodies the weekend just gone ;)

Finally got paid so had a bit of a spend up and still going.
First off I got a battery and its bloody TINY but starts the car no problem and weighs nothing! I can rest it on my little finger. Lol
Here are a few comparison pics

The battery fits nicely in the rear quarter panel so Iíve decided thatís where itís going so a few pics of relocating the batter.

Then I had an urge to do something. Something Iíve been wanting to do for agesÖÖ

I got them running on the standard ECU but obviously on the look out for an ECU. Donít know what Iím after though. But they sound AWESOME!!! :D

Gave the engine bay a bit of a clean as parts of it were filthy and put my painted ECU tray in.

Should be a few more updates to come soon.

Well a lot has gone on since the last update! I donít really know where to start. Lol
Going in picture order the bonnet badge got painted eventually.

Along with starting the Morettes which became a right ball ache! Had a reaction that kept happening then the plastic went all weird. But eventually I got them done too.

The Morettes took a good rubbing down back to bare plastic and started again. Eventually got them done. I tinted the indicator and main beam lenses too and put mesh in the inner lamp holes rather than just leaving them open.

I then finished painted the morettes. They went as planned and was all good :)

Then feeling a little unsure about it I put them together.

Still unsure I put them on the car and I like them. A lot! Also got a new tow strap. Lol

Also in behind there is a new Nissens radiator, slim like fan and oil cooler.

After making a new accelerator cable and putting on a C2 VTS inlet gasket they were on! I did use gasket paper but has an air leak and sounded like a pigeon was under my bonnet! Lol.
Started peeling off the black door strips as they were cracking. I’ve got half way.

So I thought I’d give mopping a go and wish that I had never bothered!
I was claying the car etc and decided to take the spoiler off to see a massive colour difference. Me being me wanted to sort it, myself. Bad move as I went through the paint! Haha!

Been a while since I wrote any of this up :( So catching up with about 6 months of progress.

So the Inox got a good polish, a new alternator belt and get the Brembo’s on. Used Mintex discs and got Redstuff pads which will soon be being replaced for some Ferrodo DS2500’s just STILL haven’t got around to buying them.

An under the wheels comparison.

Just a little difference in size! I then extended the air temp sensor for the bodies as originally the wires are too short.

Then it all came apart again as I decided to buy some Gaz GHA’s all round.

Also, I had an air leak on the inlet manifold and it sounded like there was a Budgie in my engine bay so I bought a C2 VTS inlet gasket and fitted that. Problem solved!
http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/benpug106/Progress%20Blog/85756A11-0DD0-4271-8B6C-ECDDD609EC1D_zpsojab2u0d.jpg (http://s1349.photobucket.com/user/benpug106/media/Progress%20Blog/85756A11-0DD0-4271-8B6C-ECDDD609EC1D_zpsojab2u0d.jpg.html)

Then finally my ECU arrived. I went for a Predator as my mate had a map on his for bodies so I used that and we tweaked it ourselves to run on my car with the help of Andy setting it up etc.

And finally got the car on the road again after what seemed a long time off the road. I took her straight to Brands Hatch for Frept meet.

Some more new bits turned up. I got some ne rear discs and pads. Again, I went for Mintex on both this time.

The Innovate wideband Lambda sensor came too to make the tweaking of the map more easier and accurate than using the standard Lambda.

Then went and picked up a new beam and decided to fit it the day before a track day at Lydden Hill.

The beam was supposed to already be lowered. Turns out it wasn’t so we had to lower it.

So after a long night and a VERY stubborn Sherry and no sleep I made it to Lydden Hill for BHP Show. This was the first track day done on this setup and really the first test. She was flying! Really was impressed and so were a lot of others :) The smile on my face on the day said it all! Few pics that got sent to me.

One of the problems was on track she decided to spit her trumpets out! I lost one so after getting hold of Colin Satchell I sent him one and he made me a replacement the exact same.

So once that arrived back in they went and there is no way they’re coming back out anytime soon!
The next things on the list were a 6 paddle Helix clutch kit and a Lightened & Balanced flywheel from atspeed.
Everything behind looked good.

Another of the little problems was an intermittent missfire so whipped off the bodies and after being told they were 182 injectors found that they were infact standard GTi injectors. I ordered some 182 injectors but one turned up broke so ended up leaving the GTi ones in to get me to FCS where I had the same problems :(

Also picked up some Baker BM solid mounts so on they went, gave her another service and it was time to go to FCS :)

Also took it to Pod. Managed a 14.6 with fuelling problems due to a fault with the ECU. Later went on to find an injector driver had a dry solder joint.

Had a good time at Lydden. Had fun with a Ginetta Jnr which resulted in a good few laps and a naughty spin that nearly rolled the car. The car went really well. Me ans Webby had a whoring session.

Now for the interesting bits. I’ve been in talks with Liam about a new engine. Originally I was going to settle with 170-180bhp. After talking we came up with the idea of building a race spec engine. What was only talking and a dream is currently turning into reality! Lol.
So to start off I bought some bodies. GSXR 44mm K5 twin injection bodies currently at SatchellHQ.

I’ve also picked up another engine. Liam donated a head to me that he has been working on. Few pics of the engine.

First off Liam Stripped the head he had at his already and ported the exhaust ports for me, and what a lovely job he has done of it.

Meanwhile David had made the manifold for my bodies down at Satchell Engineering.

Which meant Liam could make a start on porting the inlet and port matching the manifold and inlet ports.

The rears need a good servicing so will be sending them off to Cornering Force to be refurbed. Fronts were only done a year ago.
Recently bought an OMP WRC steering wheel and Q/R boss to replace what I had.

Today the dash came out. I’m starting to prepare for the car to go off for the roll cage to be fitted. It’s going to Geoff who owns a company called R.E.D and is being fitted with a Custom Cages stock hatch cage with extra bars, gussets, seam welding, Satchell Engineering front stiffening kit and part of the bulk head to be moved back so the bodies and filter sit in nicely. Also the wipers will be converted to the LHD setup. Couple of pics from today.

Couple of deliveries have turned up over the last couple of days.
Got dome bonnet pins and aero catches. I bought the aerocatches then decided against them and just go for normal bonnet pins.

A deposit has also been sent over for the cage so Iím now rushing around a little to get all the bits together so all the welding can be done in one go. A pic of the cage off of the Custom Cages website.

Today was a bit more stripping down. Took the fuel tank out, the gearbox came out and a few more interior bits. Should be getting some more done in the week. If I pull my finger out I’ll have it stripped in no time. Goes off for the cage in about 3 weeks. Hate seeing the car like this though :(

The car is now just a rolling shell. Gave the bay a good clean and done the arches a little too. Looking rather sorry for herself.

Also stripped the Brembo’s down for a refurb. Hopefully getting a refurb kit from Godspeed. Covers and pads are slightly melted. Lol.

That’s all for now really. Car is off to Geoff at RED Motorsport first week of February then to Liam’s for gussets etc so until then not a lot will be happening.
