First track

Hello all,

This week-end I had the opportunity to take the GTR for a spin on the SPa francorchamps track during the 2015 edition of Spa classics  ( More info here ).
When I speak of "take it for a spin", I didn't intend to take the expression by the word but as it was my first  "wheel on track", the risk stood there.

But besides the small spin, it was a lot of fun. I hope that I could make other track sessions later during this year.

So enough talkin, let's the video speak

P.S.: I also had the opportunity to meet a very rare machine in Europe, ancestor of my skyline

Work in progress

So, this year I decided to start the year with one week off to work on the skyline and begin my quest for a GT86/BRZ .

Concerning the first part (who interest us on this blog), I had planned 3 main things to do :

1) Taking off the interior on the right side. I discovered some rust around the rear right window so I decided to take care of it. To be fair I asked it to someone more competent than me but he asked me to remove the interior by myself.

Result in pictures :
First, removing the seats

Interior taken off

Traces of rust
There's more rust at the bottom ofB-pillar but I don't have taken pictures of it yet.

2) Changing High/low beam settings. The objective was to have all lights working when I asked high beam. I must admit that I chose the fastest and easier way to do it (soldiering some parts of the switch, for more info : ).
It's not elegant but it works and that's all that matter for me.

3) Testing the low pressure switch of aircon to find why my airocn pump doesn't engage. (will be done tomorrow I hope).

And that's all for this month. With rear audio and seats taken off, the car is louder and I must admit that I found ride in it less pleasant so it will stay at the garage until begin february.

P.S.: the car overtook the 20000km riding since the motor rebuilt \o/
