Evo VI – For Sale -Sold

Evo ownership has been awesome but I’ve owned the Evo for over 5 years now and it’s time to move on. I’ve done plenty to it in that time from simple maintenance to power upgrades. It’s slowly become better and better but now I’ve sort of run out of things I want to do to […]

Evo VI – More Cavity Wax

I did a load of cavity waxing before but it was a bit awkward with the car on axle stands. Now I have much better access underneath I thought I’d go finding all the holes I could to fill with Noxudol 700 cavity wax. This is a messy job so I only took a few […]

Evo VI – Carbon Mitsubishi Badge

I modified the original front Mitsubishi badge years ago by painting it white and using some carbon wrap over the 3 diamonds. It was starting to look a bit ropey though. Couldn’t find a carbon badge with the right fitting for the front so I made one, sort of. I bought an adhesive carbon badge […]

Evo VI – Replacement Bonnet Catch

On the second day of our holiday in The Lake District, I thought I’d check the oil before we set off for the day and the bonnet catch broke meaning the bonnet wouldn’t shut. Nice! After a quick look I could see the spring that held the secondary latch in position was gone. So it […]

Evo VI – Road Trip Around The Lake District

With the main construction of the garage finished, meaning the rest of the work was just down to us, we thought we’d have a late summer holiday. The few months of total lack of spare time and constant disruption meant we could really do with a break. We’d been invited to a wedding we’d have […]

Evo VI – Caster Angle Check

(First posted on MLR forum in July 2015) After spending a while tweaking the ride height and camber of the new coilovers I thought I’d check the caster to make sure everything is as it should be. The mount for the camber caster gauge is magnetic so I made some steel plates and extended wheel […]
